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 screen. Checked all the cables but still no picture.

Any suggestions?

Re: Samsung 40 no picture

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.

Re: Samsung 40 no picture

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 Main bd needs a Firmware update or it is going bad.
Call Samsung and have them look up your warranty by the Serial number. Keep calling to get a different agent until they agree you have a in warranty set and agree to repair it.

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.

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
