Question about Televison & Video

Samsung LCD slow to power on.

Hello. I have recently been having picture issues with my 6 year old Samsung LN46A630M1FXZA LCD TV. Anyway, what happens is when I first turn the TV on, there is no picture but the TV clicks on. After a few seconds it clicks off and clicks back on again. After several cycles of powering on and off like this sometimes a picture shows up but it is frozen and the color is usually all green or purple with vertical lines. Once again the TV will turn off and back on again several times like this. Sometimes there is a loud static sound that is very annoying. Eventually the picture appears and the TV works as it should but it has been taking it longer and longer to do this. Keep in mind at no point of the TV trying to turn on can I use the remote to turn the volume down or change inputs. I have already changed the capacitors with no luck. My next thought is the t-con board but I want to make sure before I spend the money on it.

Sounds like main power regulator board fault. Contact the authorized service centre to buy a genuine board; or check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.

It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

1. the motherboard might be bad and you will need to replace it. 2. or The power supply is bad
Chances are if its making clicks the power supply is bad and you will need to replace it. Which makes sense because constantly powering the tv on and off will damage the power supply or possibly short out your motherboard. These things usually cost about 200 bucks to fix at a local tv repair store.

SOURCE: Samsung 46" LCD LN46B650 started showing vertical

had a very similar situation with my Phillips 42 in. LCD TV.

Here was my Problem. The Power Supply Board. I opened it up( Warranty was Expired) and found several faulty capacitors on the PSB. Its pretty common. Major Electronic companies were sold faulty capacitors that fail in 2-5 years instead of 10-20 due to a lack of preservatives. It wouldn't surprise me if you have the same problem. TV will work fine for a few years and then just fail completely or slowly deteriorate.

Here are the solutions
1. Have it Repaired
2. Check for faulty caps and if you find some(budged or leaking) you know you have located a problem
Remove the board and replace the whole thing.
3. If you have some soldering skills you can replace the faulty caps.
Caps are very inexpensive, under a dollar in most cases. I replaced 4 for about $5.00

Hope this Helps.
Good Luck

I have a Samsung LN46A630M1FXZA TV that had sound but no picture. I changed the T-Con board and now there is a picture but it is very light, washed out.


This is often caused by the Y-sustain board, be careful to drain all power before undoing the ribbons and are all secured before testing with power, I blew my whole board this way.

Samsung s42ax-yd01 - No picture / Sound OK problem


Hi,
If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
If your TV, flatscreen, or monitor is more than 5 years old it is more like to have suffered a component failure.
Take it to a repair shop.

Without an EST meter you could not tell if you have bad caps anyway. So it was a shot in the dark. The caps dont have to be on the main PSU. They can be on the other parts too. Also the PSU you bought might have bad caps

Bought a samsung 42' 4000 series tv, its less than 2 years old & the picture went bad looks worse than a really old tube tv watching an old VHS. contacted samsung-they don't care, referred me to a tv...


Why won't the Samsung Authorised Dealer repair the board? It's not that difficult!
There will be a power fault and the picture is not "building" properly. At worst it will be one of the memory chips.
With a reflo soldering machine, no problem.

Hello.
It looks like you ignored lamp replacement in your TV. It have to be replaced every 2.5 years of average use. It's like oil change in a car. Regular scheduled service.
You can read info about lamp replacement in your TV owner's manual, buy lamp on-line and replace it by yourself to save some money.
Regards.

Toshiba regza 32hl67 losing its' picture and motion is slow


I have a toshiba regza 32hl67 LCD tv which is only 2 1/2 years old. The picture on this unit just started to go the other day (screen darkens but images are still visible and the motion/movement is very slow). I contacted Toshiba and they just said to unplug the tv for 3 minutes to reset the tv. This doesnt work. I am VERY upset with Toshiba, after paying $800 for a tv that only lasted 2 1/2 years. If anyone has had similar issues and know how to fix it, please let me know. Thanks

3 year old Samsung 40 inch LCD TV will not turn on


The problem is 4 capacitors on the power supply board. Just had mine done under warranty. They (Sears) replaced the whole power board but you can get larger capacitors and just replace those for alot cheaper if not under warranty.

Samsung 40 no picture


If it is only 6 months old you probably still have a warranty. This is definitely a hardware issue, and unless you are comfortable taking your new TV apart, I would contact Samsung for repair.
