Question about Samsung LN-T4661F 46 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Very slow to turn on and has small light spots all over screen

It now takes 30 seconds to 1 minute for the set to display a picture on after turning it on. It used to take less than 10 seconds. Also, mostly noticable on dark screen it looks like looking at the sky on a very clear moonless dark night. Little ***** dots scattered all over the screen. This set is 2 years old and both of these problems have appeared in the last few weeks. Both seem to be gradually getting worse.

The first thing to look for are swollen capacitors on the power board.replace them if so.

My Sylvania lc320ss8 shuts of by itself after being turned on for 1 minute or two, I have tried unplugging for 30 minutes as suggested by the owners manual but still shuts off, please help


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.
Take it to a repair shop.

Your camera has a power save mode. When you put it in mode power save you can chose when he display should go off. It can be set to 30 seconds, 1 min, 2 min or OFF direct.
Check the setup menu, part about Power, and select 30 seconds. Or don't use power save.
I hope this will help you. (page 65 from he manual)

Screen has green and reddish spots in two upper corners


It sounds like the screen has become magnetized by the magnets in the speakers.

Inside all analog TVs is a device called a degaussing coil. When you turn on the TV for the first time (cold), the degaussing coil is energized for a couple seconds to demagnetize the screen and then it goes off.

You can purchase an external degaussing coil and demagnetize the screen youself. A degaussing coil looks like a small hula-hoop about 6-8 inches in diameter with a AC line cord attached. I've even made these coils out of long lengths of enameled wire, electrical tape and a line cord.

Once itas plugged into the wall outlet, you hold it close to the screen (1/2' away) with the hoop facing the screen and move the hoop in a circular pattern, covering all areas of the screen and slowly move the hoop away from the screen while still moving in a circular patten until your about 2-3 feet from the screen.

If you did it right, the color splotches will be gone.

It's possible that the coil in your set is bad. The coil is energized for a few seconds when you turn on your TV and then it shuts off a few seconds later. You can try turning on the set for around 30 seconds, and then turn it off. Wait about 10 minutes and turn on the set again. Doing this several times may let the sets internal coil (if its working) to demagnetize the screen. If not, you'll need to use a degaussing coil.

Let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good Luck!

Screen light doesn't turn off


Check your display settings. Settings, Phone, Display: Check that Light Timeout is set (I have mine setup for 20 seconds). This should do the trick. If you wish to conserve yet more battery power, set "sleep mode" to on and set a power saver timeout (mine is set to 1 minute). good luck.
