SOURCE: plasma tv frozen or locked and remote and tv buttons dont work

This is the best solution for your problem as a 40 year experience with wires etc. Go to the source of your cable signal connector . Open it and clean the terminals with emery paper , sand the end of the cable shiny clean from corrosion , get a new barrel connectors with gold terminals if possible lengthen the ends of the cable , insert and tighten good, use thick rg-16 or rg 40 cable with good insulation ends crimped professionally with a crimpier or buy ready made , not from dollar store. Get a gold plated professional splitter if you need one or two , it will cost about 15 or more each . Make the cable runs as short as possible, using the thick good cables. If needed get a signal magnifier. From radio shack or the source etc. Connect them good and tight . Ground the splitters . Problem solved , you will get crystal clear channel 2 to 7 including 3 and 4 . Isolate the TV cable from other cables and power wires. Vitally

SOURCE: samsung 50" plasma tv with no picture but has sound.

I just had a similar issue with my 46" Samsung LCD and fixed it myself for $5.11! I realize we have different tvs, but I bet it is the same issue ... crapped out capacitors.

I researched the problem online and most places, like samsung's site, referred me to call a repairman and called for the whole control panel or power supply to be replaced for anywhere between $400-$1000. I was like ... "screw that" ... I refuse to put in a fautly part in the place of a faulty part. So I continued to research.

That's when I stumbled on youtube. There are many how to videos on how to tackle this daunting task. I read that the issue was more than likely faulty capacitors and there is a very easy way to tell if it is in fact the capacitors that are blown. instead of having a flat top, faulty capacitors are crowned or even ruptured! When I opened up my TV I saw 3 blown capacitors!

So I bought 3 new capacitors all with the same uf and higher volts ... I think all three of my capacitors were 1000 uf and 25 volts. I kept the uf the same (recommended) and raised the voltage to 35 volts. It doesn't mean more volts, it just means it COULD handle more volts if it had to (which was the problem those cheap Samsung bastards screwed up on). This is a very common problem with Samsung TVs.

Anyway, I have never soldered before, but I did it. I warmed up the solder on the bad capacitors and removed them them slid thenew ones in and soldered them in and popped everything back together ... and PRESTO .... the damn thing works better than ever!

3 capacitors= $5.11
1 solder gun and solder= about $18
fixing an incredibly intimidating TV by yourself= PRICELESS!


Seriously ... don't be afraid to F up ... check it out on youtube and other place and save yourself a bundle. Source(s): I just fixed my TV!!!!!!!!

Cannot get sound to work


read the owner manual if you have it---if set has lockout feature unless it also locks remote you should be able to operate with remote.

A few sets have a lockout that affects both remote and keyboard buttons==if no owner manual Google for it by model number or visit the Samsung? site.

Ihave spn 4235 plsama tv problem is keep scan channel and rase the valume by self also icanot use the remote control to use the tv for on and off just plug and unplug the wire power need help plz


First take the Batteries out of your remote control to see if the T.V. is still changing channels or not. If it stops changing the channels and volume, try opening the remote with a knife and clean all the pads with rubbing alcohol to prevent sticking buttons. Be careful if using a remote with a roller ball.

Ask your parents to give you the password. Passwords are there to stop inquisitive kids from watching unsavoury things.

If you are an adult then use the Payable request to prove you are of age and not a child trying to subvert Mum and Dads password.

now go to your room and think about your punishment when your parents find out about this
