Samsung 40 no picture

The set is 6 months old and has been working perfectly until today. Turned it on and the sound was great but no picture....black screen. Checked all the cables but still no picture.

Any suggestions?

    The screen goes to black and loses audio randomly. It will come back on after turning it off and on numerous times; at times immediately, or at times up to an hour later. Have owned the set for 18 months. Doesn't appear to be an overheating issue because this has happened after having it on for 5 minutes, or 5 hours. Have noticed that shaking the set appears to fix the issue, maybe indicating a loose internal component.

I bought a 40" LNT4061F Samsung Flat Screen 02/15/08 and 10 days later the picture went out on me. I was just watching TV when all the sudden the TV turned off on its own. I turned it back on and got a blank white screen. I couldn't even get the menu to appear. The sound was there, but no picture. I called Samsung for help and they said that they would have to send out a service tech. This all happened Sunday, the 24th of February. They said that I would hear from a service tech in 24 to 48 hours. Well 24 hours is up, I hope I hear from them tommorrow. I'll give an update when something happens so that others may know what to expect.

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.

Why does the screen shut down after 1 sec while sound continues


It sounds like bad luck to me. You cannot change any settings on a TV by connecting a computer to it. In theory you can damage any monitor by setting the screen resolution of the computer higher than the monitors maximum res. The Sharp 26" has a resolution of 1366 x 768 (1080i) so (again in theory and I have never seen it happen) if you set the output to 1920 x 1024 (HD - 1080p) it can kill the screen. Perhaps this is what has happened. You will need to take it to a Sharp service centre.

The cheaper and possibly easier solution, which I did a couple days ago is to replace the capacitors. All you need to do is get some 1000 microfarad 35 volt capacitors from radio shack, which cost 1.59 each. You solder out the old caps and stick these in their place. This will cost you at most 6 dollars to replace the four bad caps. If you don't have a soldering gun, you can also get that at radio shack for like 20 bucks. I don't have a great deal of experience with soldering, but I was able to do this. Good luck

No picture on vizio lcd


It's likely not a backlight, but a mainboard. If you are feeling frisky, take the back off and get the model number off the mainboard and check eBay.

There is not much you can do to fix your plasma. Since the plasma is less then 1 year old, still under Samsung warranty.
I would suggest to call them to fix it.
Good luck.

Black screen and no sound


I realized that there is a 90 day warrantee on parts and a 30 day limited warrantee on labor for the  repairs that were done. As I stated, the original problem was the picture shrinking after a few minutes of the set being on. The repair firm took my control board with them. When they came back to install the repaired control board in my set there was a load spark during the installation, after which I had a black screen and no sound.  The repair firm took my set them and installed a "CAP Kit", a STRM6511, and a "D1881". The set worked perfectly until two days ago.
I called the repair firm an they are coming out this Thursday to check out my TV.   I am hoping the problem is related to the failure of one of the parts installed to fix a similar problem which occurred after the sparking incident.

Verticle lines on screen


This is a very easy fix. Your cable box is not grounded correctly. To fix this you need a AC Plug adapter. This will change your TV ac plug from a 3 wire to a 2 wire. This may sound funny, but trust me on this. I have fix a lot of TV in NY doing just this.24001fc.jpg
