Question about Samsung HCM4215W 42" Rear Projection Television

3 Answers

No picture I just picked up this Samsung 42" projection TV Model HCM4215W. It has no picture at all and the timer LED on the front is blinking. It seems like it is not powering up. Possibly a bad AMP, PCB, or module??? I would appreciate any help from an expert. Thank you

Hi,

You have a blown power supply, most likely caused by defectiveelectrolytic capacitors that if are electronically handy can bereplaced for a few dollars.
Here is a link to some one who experienced what you are going through and how he got his repaired for less than $30.

Defectiveelectrolytic capacitors from China are a rampant problem. Cheap Dell,computers fail all the time because of this problem.

Good Luck

Most likely faulty power supply. VERY common in the newer tv sets. Last 1-3 years old and even newer sets. As well as other electronics. The capacitors are getting overheated and burn out quickly.

Hi, that LED on the front is probably blinking an error code. Can you tell me how many times it blinks and whether it is red or green during the blinking. Also, I assume the audio is also not coming on at all, is the case too? Benjamin

We have a Samsung DLTV that does this when the bulb needs to be replaced. We have to replace the bulb quite frequently. You can look up the bulb you need online using the model number of your TV. I hope this helps.

Black screen and red timer light is on


It may be the problem of the Dish connection or stablizer. Remove the stablizer and connect the Tv direct to switch board and re connect the dish connection. Then switch on the TV it will work.
