Fix wet tv

Hello. I have a Samsung Ln46b550k1fxza TV. Our 3 year old spayed the screen with Windex and I think it dripped down into the bottom lip of the TV. Now we have a dark line running from top to bottom on the left side of the screen. The width of the dark line is about 4-5 inches. Is there anything I can do to fix this?

    I leaned TV on its side to get out the exess Windex fluid out. As much as I can anyways. Also left TV off over night, hoping it would dry and be better in the morning. Sadly, no luck. Line is still there. Appreciate any help I can get. Thank you!

Vertical hold circuit is failing.

Check capicitor in vertical hold circuit. You should have solid knowledge of electronics repair before attemping repair. TV's can emmit harmful radiation, and produce voltages up to or in excess of 30kV.

Please DO NOT attempt to repalce the flyback as mentioned in the earlier posting. There are potentially dangerous voltages (33,000Volts) present there even with the TV unplugged. Your set has a problem with the horixontal circuit that can be as simple as a bad solder connection. I would recommend that you get a detailed repair estimate from a local repair shop BEFORE you attempt any repair. Please note that we can help to guide you through this process, but caution is required.

SOURCE: I have got Samsung Plano 29 inch TV. I see

dear hari

i suggest you doing this

HARD RESET: First, do the hard reset so that if there is a corruption of the soft codes, this will reprogram them back to the original factory settings. Just unplug the power cord for 4 hours; thereafter plug it in and power it up.

WHACKING Test: Smack the set with your hand or fist all around the chassis; side, top, back, etc. This will reactivate any loose connection or cold solder joint.

If the above two procedures do not help you should be thinking about purchasing a new set. This one is already near the end of life and fixint it will just add to the cost of owning it. You will be better off with a new tv.

The cause of this is most likely coming from the convergence function; this circuit organizes the video signal and modulates the picture and the raster sweeps to each other so that the picture is properly assembled on the screen for viewing. When it goes out, the entire picture will be effected.

If smacking the set restores the picture, try to find a magic smack, or put a magazine or book under one corner to see if it will put some torque on the chassis to keep it going.

But, the set is too old to put very much money into its repair.

Hope this helps you find the right solution.

SOURCE: my 32inch tv turns on but the picture is wired.

On a 32 inch it may not be worth fixing--not going to be a reset etc--base decision on fact that possible repair should not exceed used value of set--which in my view it likely will.

I have several large water spots on the lower right corner of the tv from overspray with windex. Can this be fixed?

Not a good idea to clean tv with windex. Try wet towel dipped in mild soap solution. Make sure all water has been removed and towel is only wet. When tv off, try removing the spots. Turn tv on only after tv dry.

Windex in my tv will it come back to life

The only hope is to have a tech or shop open it---it got down on the board and will rust parts and leads and or damage them---it can be fatal but only a examination will reveal that.

I have three black circles, and some color streaking at he bottom inch of my RCA, LCD tv

that is usually caused by cleaning the screen with windex the windex runs down the screen bewteen the screen and plastic frame and actually seeps inside between the screen layers. Eventually it may go away by itself if the circles are not too bad but in most cases the damage is permanent.It can also be an issue called screen delamination which there is no fix for.

Sorry Sir but your LCD TV got wet... it can be splash with too much water, an animal urinate on the panel, etc....
this kind of black spot is caused when the LCD Panel Terminals got wet, this terminals are located at the lower side of the LCD Panel.

TV suddenly doesn't respond to Sony remote & power button on Satellite remote.

I am having the same problem with the "initial setup" screen flashing repeatedly/ intermittently. It's not a problem with the remote. In the research I have done online, it seems as though this is a common/known problem with the Wegas that will require a service visit. Apparently the problem is a defective receiver chip. The best thread I found is at: I've seen some speculation that it is caused by windex or cleaning fluid dripping down when the screen is cleaned and corroding one of the internal components. That's not applicable in my case, since I always just clean the screen with a microfiber dusting cloth. So, I guess I will be calling a repairman and spending $$$ to fix as it is now flashing up so often as to be unwatchable. Ridiculous, I think, given that my TV is only 3 years old!!
