Question about LG 42LC2D 42 in. LCD HDTV

Samsung LCD 40 Sensor & picture problem.

Samsung LCD 40" TV: TV turns on and off repeatedly. It seems to be struggling to keep itself powered. The remote doesn't change anything. If it decides to stay on long enough to get a signal, the picture is narrow vertical rainbow stripes. Will not stay off unless unplugged. Sound is OK when TV is on.

Since this is affecting several functions, the problem is likely the main power supply. It may be that the supply itself is failing (switched mode power supplies like hari-kari) or an assembly (possibly the backlight invertor) is producing a fault condition which is causing the supply to drop out to protect itself.
Try the instructions below -
The supply is normally built on a separate board since these are often out-sourced by set manufacturers.

Unplug your set overnight to allow potentially hazardous voltages to discharge, remove the back panel of the set so you can see the guts.
Look for a smaller board with larger parts on it; some cylindrical (capacitors), others block-like and relatively large (chokes and transformers).
You should also see a relationship between the board and the incoming AC.
Check the board for a label or if not present, a stamped-on number.
Call the manufacturer's service center with your TV model number and the number found on that board and inquire about repair/replacement costs; if both are offered, they won't be that much different.
If you must buy a new board, don't dispose of the failed one as there are smaller companies that can repair it for less than the mfr. and then keep it as a spare as this problem will likely arise again.

Tv keeps shutting off and going back on by itself


Cold solder joint in the power-supply board, once it heats up it expands and shuts off. Open it up and start scanning the board for defects and hit them with a hot soldering iron and a dab of solder.

Power won't come on- constant clicking loop instead


My T.V. did the same thing and it was due to bad capacitors on the power supply board. the tops of the capacitors were bulged, once replaced it worked fine. It involves sodering in new capacitors total cost $30. that includes buying the sodering tool. Keep looking around on line someone had pictures step by step how to do it.

Samsung LCD tv - Turns on and off by itself.


Since you have another TV with the same problem you can try using an antenna(indoor model ok) to see if the cable is causing the problem. If not return TV before the warranty expires.

Howdy,
It sounds like you have a Power Supply Board problem. The PSB is the center Board (towards left) after you remove the back off the TV. Remove Board from TV with the 6-7 screws. Replace capacitors CM852 & CM853; 2200ufd 25volts.

Thanks for using FIXYA, big IRISH.

Samsung LN-S4051D slow to turn on.


You are likely to have a module bad....part number BN94-00864A and if you take it out (unpluggs) you should inspect it for capacitors that may be domed or pooched up at the top. If so they should be replaced first before getting the module as the capacitors are about $1.00 each. Do a search for Samsung parts online if you need the module and call them toll free
