Question about Samsung HCM4215W 42" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

A loud POP then no picture...now no power

Is this a fuse problem? It was on for about five hours straight last night and I was in the kitcen. I heard a series of pops and then a strange smell and I walked in the living room and the picture had stopped. I unplugged it and plugged it in again. Red light came on but no power. Now the red light does not come on at all.

PLEASE HELP. I have replaced parts successfully before. What do I need to replace this time? Is it a fuse or what?

    okay, i took a look inside and there is a box with large tubular things sticking out and wires coming from them. It looks FRIED. Is this called a splitter? The number on the box is FFA97513B and under that 02052903S. Would that cause that kind of problem?



    Is that an easy fix? Is it worth ordering the part? I need to go figure out how much that would be.



    Thanks.

Check the High Voltage transformer ( Flyback transformer ). I have also found a bad High Voltage Wire ( the big red wires coming from the voltage combiner devise to the picture tubes). Since the set is now dead also, you may also need to look at the fuses and also check the Horizontal Transistor. Good luck. This may be a timely and harder repair.

    Yes, the component you are describing sounds like the splitter ( combiner as some call it ) It's not a real expensive devise, but also remember, you mentioned the set in now dead, so you also have another problem in addiotion to the burmed out splitter. as for changing the splitter, it's not real diffacult, but you need to excersize extreme caution when working with those big red wire going to the picture tubes, as they can store high voltage for a long time ( somtimes months ). I'm talking 35,000 volts so be careful. ( there is a discharge method that technitions use to prevent getting shocked). If it were me, I would get some prices for the splitter and go from there. you might be surprised to see it's less than 100 dollars.Good Luck

Hello, My tv is about 5yrs old.We heard a loud


Hi,
You need to replace Y main board & buffer, which will cost you around $600-700. Since the TV is five years it will be better to go with new, and it won't be worth enough to spend $700 for old TV.

Hope this helps.

We heard a pop last night the screen went black but we can still hear and the tv turns off and on


Hi,
Most likely the loud pop that you heard was the lamp filament shattering and you can verify that by physically inspecting it,the UHP lamps have a life expectancy of 6000 to 8000 lamp hours when they are Phillips and from 3500 to 4500 lamp hours if it is an Osram,and you can find this items on discount-merchant.com or on Ebay

Tv went out after loud pop and has clicking noise does not turn on


If you have a Sony DLP, then the loud pop you heard is your lamp.  The lamps last approx. 4K-6K viewing hours.  Read your manual for replacement part number to reorder and very simple to replace yourself.
