Samsung TV screen problems

My new 46" Samsung LCD TV is infrequently flashing like a stobe light on the bottom half of the screen. I can usually turn the TV off and back on again and it will quit. Any insight?

Re: Samsung TV screen problems

The fluorescent backlight tube in the LCD display is defective. Replacement requires a lot of disassembly to get into the back of the LCD panel, and changing the tube takes some very delicate soldering work - rather more difficult than printed circuit repair.

My vizio is flashing like a stribe light

Sounds like the ballast board that controls the back light for the screen is failing. There is a possibility that the light tubes need replacing too.

I have a 46" Samsung LCD tv that won't turn on. When I press the power button you can hear the chime sound it usually makes and you can hear the relay click and the screen flashes quickly then goes bl

sounds like you have a back light problem. To verify this, turn on the set, dim the lights in the room, and shine a bright flash light on the screen. If you see the faint picture on the screen, you have a back light problem. You could either have a shorted inverter that is pulling down the 24vdc line, a blown CCFL back lamp, a high voltage short (arcing) from one of the inverter outputs, or a faulty 24vdc power supply

Samsung LCD 46 inch half of the screen is darker than the other half.

Hi, while fixing another persons lcd tv i used lower rated power supply to try to fire up the tv ( picture-no sound) the bulbs ( actually cold cathode fluorescent ) lit up but only halfway. So sounds like the power supply for your backlight has gotten weak. You may try a workaround I've used on personal equipment, try turning down brightness on tv-this may,if your lucky, even out the brightness. hope this helped. Prodzilla

My Samsung TV 46" LNT4671F

This is due to low voltage getting to the Inverter board or the Inverter board on the bad side is not lighting the lamps. Usually bad capacitors or the power supply and the inverter will cause this symptom. You may want to replace both inverters boards on this model, new models have one inverter board for both sides of the backlight.
