Question about Samsung HLN617W 61" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

2 year old Samsung 50" DLP

The srcreen freezes...goes blank. takes about 5 seconds...then goes back to normal. The sound also gets cut off as well during this "reset" Time. the screen freezing happens every 10 minutes...sometimes less. I am using HDMI input for Direct TV. When I change inputs (component video) i get a snowy green screen.

If I unplug the TV, it will work fine...no freezing screen or green snow but that will only last about an hour.

Sounds like a bad digital board to me. Not too hard to replace in those models but, you do have to write down a few settings before replacing it. These settings are available in the service menu. Any questions let me know tvtek@msn.com

How to reset a windows phone


Try these fixes if, for example, your phone randomly reboots, freezes or does not switch on, if an app crashes, if you have sound problems, or if the screen is blank:

1. Restart your phone.
Press and hold the Power and Volume Down keys simultaneously for 10-15 seconds. Release and the phone will restart. After this operation, you may need to set the date and time on the phone.

If the problem persists, reset and restore your phone as instructed below.

2. Reset and restore your phone.
Important:
  • This erases all personal content on your phone and restores the factory settings.
  • Before continue with the reset, make sure your phone's battery level is above 50%. To check the remaining battery life, go to Settings > battery saver. If you are not able to check it, or the level is too low, charge your phone for at least 20 minutes.
Reset your phone by using the built-in option in the phone settings. Select Settings > About > Reset your phone.
However, if you cannot access the phone settings, follow the steps below:
a. Disconnect the charger. Press and hold the Power and Volume Down keys simultaneously. Release the pressed keys when phone vibrates and then immediately press and hold the volume down button until the phone displays an exclamation mark (!) on the screen. Release the volume down key.

b. Then press the volume and power keys in the following order: volume up, volume down, power, and volume down.

c. Wait for your phone to reset, during the reset you will see gears rotating on the screen for up to 5 minutes, after which the screen goes blank for ~30 seconds and then your phone will restart.
d. Go through the initial phone setup. Make sure that you have the date and time set correctly on your phone (Settings > date+time).

It sounds like you already have battery problems. The unit functions until it exhausts what power it has and then blanks to reserve power for saved information. Contact the manufacturer.

I have a sony tv model kdf-50e2000,and it has a problem with the picture going blank,the only light that on or flashes is the green (POWER) light. when turning the set on the green light blinks as it...


You tv used lamp XL-2400 or also known as F93087500. It is very common for this bulb to fail and have the exact symptom you are experiencing. I cant count how many times I have seen it.. Replace the lamp with either the exact Sony or an OEM and you will be back in business..
Good Luck!!

Iphone 3GS- only get the apple loading screen.


If iPhone won't turn on, or the display freezes or doesn't respond
  1. Press and hold the Home button for at least six seconds, until the application you were using quits.
  2. If that doesn't work, turn iPhone off and turn it on again. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPhone for a few seconds until a red slider appears, and then slide the slider. Then press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
  3. If that doesn't work, reset iPhone. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears

More resets:
Try This:
1. Remove Sim Card
2. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until Apple logo appears
3. Replace Sim Card
4. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until normal phone screen appears.


Also, Try this:
1.) Shut down the iPhone 3G.
2.) Start up iTunes
3.) Hold down HOME button on the iPhone 3G
4.) While keeping the HOME button depressed, plug in the Sync cable
5.) A message will pop up to ask if you want to reset.
6.) Just click YES and the reset process should start.

Picture & sound go on & off every sec, red light blinks 5 times


helloFive blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning up screen slightly.

The TV cuts off frequently. The screen is blank & no sound.


It is probable you have a poor soldered connection on the power supply board, hence the erratic timing of the TV going on & off. If you are competent with a soldering iron look for dry jointed soldering on the board. If not have a service engineer take a look at it for you.

No input signal


Check connections, Hertz rate, and settings (if you can read them). Otherwise, it may be time to whip out the cash and get a new monitor and/or computer.
