Question about Samsung LE40R74BDX 40 in. LCD Television
We have just unpacked our Samsung TV after it was shipped from USa to UK and in storage for 4 months here in UK.
It worked perfectly in USA and appeared to be fine when I set it up to cable and dvd - it was only on for about 5 mins.
however, after being used for an extended period last night - the 1st time since the move, today the screen resolution is totally wrong in places. The pixels are not stuck as the colours change - there is too much blue and when looking at the blank screen there are millions of pale blue pixels (varying shades) in vertical lines. The colours on the screen do respond to change but it is almost like looking at a photo negative - it seems to be getting worse the longer we look at it.
We have checked colour and contrast and these do not alter the fault.................
Any ideas as we are able to claim for items damaged in transit by the shipping company!
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Are you getting just the white glowing screen and no pictures or on screen menu showing? If that is the case, it can be the T-CON board failure or it is not getting the 5v or 12vdc feeding it from the main board.
