Question about Televison & Video

I have a flat screen Samsung TV, I am not sure what my son sprayed on our TV as he said he was cleaning it, but now it turns off and on. I am also not able to change the channel or volume. It is stuck on DVD mode and thats all we can do is watch dvds until it powers off. Is there a way to fix this

You need to qualify what was sprayed. Try using a mild isopropyl mix and an air duster can. Who knows if thatll help. Depends on what was sprayed and where on the unit.

Hi there,
My sister-in-law has exactly the same problem and is a common one with this unit.
I've spoken to a technician who says that:
1. Hitachi are withdrawing from Australia and there are VERY limited service centres left
2. The problem is a chip on the main board and depending when the TV was made will determine whether the chip is a plu-in or soldered on to the main board - if it's the latter, you'll be up for a main board at around $400
3. He couldn't get the price of the plug-in chip because he couldn't get through to Hitachi.

Cheers

SOURCE: Samsung LCD Flat Screen TV LN-S2651D - Volume Problem

I lived with it for about six weeks, then took the back off the TV. Just now it seems to be fixed, but I don't know if it will last.

I disconnected the wire leading to the channel up/down, volume up/down and source board, turned on the tv, turned it back off, reconnected the cable, and everything seems fine now.

SOURCE: Samsung flat screen T.V with sound problems.

Sounds like the issue is with the set top box of your cable or direct tv provider. Please swap that receiver for the equivalent or a more updated version.If the problem persists. Verify that all inputs on television is correct. It should match. Output of source( digital receiver,dvd player) to Input( television ). Make sure all is secure. Good luck

How do I clean my lg screen on my tv properly


Hello
Buy one Bottle of Monster ScreenClean Home & Office Display Cleaner
Make sure your TV screen is completely cooled before cleaning. Have TV turned off for about 30 minutes before cleaning to allow screen to cool off. Unplug TV. Make sure the area where TV is located is well lighted. This will make it easier for you to see if you are leaving any smudges behind when you clean your TV screen. I suggest you get a Monster ScreenClean Display Cleaning Kit, unless you have a couple of clean and quality Microfiber cloths in your home. If so, you can buy the ScreenClean solution separately. Some LCD TVs come with a Microfiber cloth, but they are usually a bit small
Spray Monster ScreenClean to Center of TV
Assuming you are using the Monster brand display cleaner, remove the little plastic cap on top of the bottle pump. Please do not try to go cheap with display cleaning solution when you most likely have a not so cheap TV. The cleaning solution will be much cheaper than having your screen repaired or replaced. The Monster directions state to either spray the ScreenClean solution onto the Microfiber cloth or directly onto display surface. Although the Monster solution is drip resistant, it does trickle sometimes, although very slowly. For that reason, I suggest if you are going to spray your screen directly with the Monster solution, spray toward the center of the TV screen about 8 inches away from the surface. Do not worry, if you forget and spray the solution closer to the frame of the TV, the display cleaning solution is still rather slow in to trickle down your screen. Just use a little caution
Gently rub Microfiber cloth in a circular motion to apply the cleaning solution evenly over entire display. Repeat with dry portion of the Microfiber cloth if the TV screen needs extra polishing. You may get a smudge free cleaning without the dry portion of your cloth if your TV screen was not that dirty
To clean the frame of most LCD and plasma TVs use a clean eye glass cloth dampened with water. Make sure to go in one direction around the frame of the TV. Check manufacturers directions to be certain, but for most the eye glass cloth should be fine. Since it is made to take care of eye glasses, it does not scratch. For certain it works fine on the Samsung Touch of Color TV frames

We have a denon avr-589 5.1 system. It worked great until my son tried to hookup the wii into it. We now have no sound on the tv and dvd player. He normally plays the wii through the samsung flat screen...


foxtile,
How funny my son just did the same yesterday!

Make sure that the speaker selectors and the input modes are set correctly. He must have hit both buttons at the same time which turned off the speaker outputs and changed the input mode to a setup we were not using.

Wrong Chemical Cleaner on 60 inch DLP TV


Hi There,

Unfortunately, I think you may be out of luck. If you spray a screen directly you are taking a chance at killing your TV. You're actually pretty lucky that it still works. Some chemicals can eat right through or seep through edges and corners and ruin the life of your TV. I am not sure if Mr Clean contains alcohol, but that is the last thing you want on any screen. I would suggest trying to clean it off with an alcohol free solution for HDTV screens only or calling Mitsubishi immediately and see what they have to say.. Here is a similar product for what I am talking about:

Good Luck and Happy Holidays..
