Question about Samsung LE32R73BD 32 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

2 Answers

Static lines one screen

I have a Samsung LE32R73BDX, 2 days ago, I turned on the TV to find that I have static lines running vertically through out the whole screen. I still get picture and sound, but its overlayed with static lines. The lines look mostly white, about half centimetre thick with bits of green and red. The run vertically, looking like morse code, it isnt clean cut lines. It like this for all the sources, for one of the scart source, the top 2 inches dont have the lines. Its a clean picture. Got a photo here....

I've turned off all power, unlugged wall, left it overnight, still the same.

help, please.....

Re: Static lines one screen

As the top is ok and the bottom has this issue.
It looks like the circuit board has a bad connection to your screen.
it is not repairable by you and not an adjustment.
you need to have it repaired.
don't you miss the old wack on the side fix?

Re: Static lines one screen

Got the same problem.
Exactly like the photo.
Now i am not satified with the solution given by Mr. Coldcut because my menu and TXT is clear.
If i put on TXT on half screen i have the static disturbtion only in the TV half screen and not in teletext.
disturbtion is in all inputs including HDMI
So problem must be in PCB which has the scart and antenna connectors.
Please comment !

Samsung LN-S4692D - Vertical lines (>15) & static on screen

this sounds like a scan board gone ,, if you check ebay youll see two things,
1, other tvs for sale with the same fault (It might give you a clue to the fault ie , which board )
2, the same tv as yours with a broken screen ,

i dont know how good you are with taking things to bits but i personally would buy the tv with the broken screen and start swapping over the internal boards ?

Have you checked your home insurance policy for broken tv,s
it may have fell of its stand when you were'nt looking?
