Question about Samsung HP-S4253 Television
We got hit by lightning and by some miracle our Samsung HP-S4253 TV seemed ok. I just replaced the receiver, DVD and cablebox. I have also replaced my HDMI cables. After doing so I was still not getting a picture via HDMI and found that HDMI1 does not work but HDMI2 does. However, my TV does not recognize when switching to the DVD from the DVR or on the DVR box to a recorded program. It only recognizes it if I unplug the HDMI cable or power off the receiver I am assuming this is due to the HDMI port issues. Can this be repaired or do I need to get a new TV?
Main system control memory IC fault. This is a very small IC; have 8 solder terminals, and can be located very near to the main system control-chroma IC. Check and replace it. Be sure to replace it with the same number printed on it; in all respect. Otherwise, it won't go. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Before replacing it, try a reset to this set, and then check.
There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here.

The pink fuzzies come from a faulty Ymain. If you are looking at the set with the back off, its the largest board on the left side. Get the part number from the board and replace that one first. You may have to check the buffers or the logic board if this doesn't solve the problem but 9 times out of 10 when the picture is firing random pixels, its due to an overload in the Ymain (also called the YSUS).

you need a fibre optical cable for this, simply you connect that from your dvd to tv and then set the input on the dvd to digi in. i have exactly same home cinema system.

SOURCE: Samsung LN-R408D - No Picture
My Mom's LNR408D also had sound but no picture. I was able to fix it by soldering in a jumper wire across a blown (1.5A ???) SMD picofuse on the "T-Con" board.
Consider attempting this ONLY if you: 0) Know enough to avoid the potentially fatal High Voltage parts of the power supply board!!!
1) Are a fearless hackazoid 2) know what you're doing with a soldering iron and teensie SMD parts 3) are gonna throw the busted thing out anyway so you have nothing to lose and won't be sad if you screw something up.
4) Know enough to avoid the potentially FATAL High Voltage parts of the power supply board!!!!!
This board is at the top center under a close fitting RF shield. The suspect part was labeled "CP" on the board and marked with "P" on the part. It is visible above the right-center of the connector from the main board. An ohmmeter showed it as open, so I bypassed it with a jumper wire from connector VIN to the hot side of C13. One image shows the suspect part and the jumper in place.
The other shows the TCON board placement top-center (under its RF shield). With care, it seems possible to test the fuse and put the jumper in place without removing the shield. (Obviously don't touch anything else with the VOM leads!)
Thanks to ZORBUS and Steve's TV and Electronics for the idea.
