Re: Crazy TV?????

Hi, either the eprom is corrupted or the front control board is bad, the control board can be a diy job but not the eprom. Have you pulled the tv`s AC cord for 30 seconds and then plugged it back in to see if that will do a re-set on the micro ? If not try it, you`ll have to remove the back of the set and pull the cable from the control board while it`s on so if this makes you nervous call a tv tech instead of attempting it, be advised that removing it while the set is turned off will not work because of course there is no way then to turn on the set, hope this helps, questions? e-mail me back, BMW Rider

RCA Entertainment Series 32" Plus Gold, GEMSTAR, xbox ready has been in the shop twice so far. Transformer replaced and 6 months later the picture suddenly had horizontal white lines that gradually spaced apart more from top to bottom and it had a gray hue and fuzzy, but I still watched it for 3 months that way. Today I turned it on and about a minute later I heard a loud crackling sound coming from the back and the picture disappeared, screen went black. Is it worth fixing again? Please contact me at

Power issues (Tv not turning on) were typically due to faulty ballast. While the TV reports a bad lamp it is the ballast itself causing the issue. Samsung is well aware and will replace both the ballast and the lamp (since the lamp can be prematurely aged but the bad ballast). After replacment most people stop having issues.

Samsung DLP loud vibrating noise

The color wheel is the most common problem in DLPs that cause noise. To determine the cause: Turn the set off. If the noise goes away after about five seconds, then, the problem is the color wheel. If the noise goes away one to two minutes after shut off, then, the problem is a fan. You can find an Authorized Servicer in your area that can tell you the price of repair, by clicking on the Samsung link:
