Question about Samsung PCL542R 54" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

So my PCL542R........

Decided that it didn't want to turn on the other day. Instead it made a scratchy noise in the rear bottom area the sound was definitley not coming from audio cause it actually came on briefly until it decided to say goodnight. Unplugged it and next day plugged back in and tried but nothing. Noticed when plugging it in it clicks and green light on front illuminates briefly. Ive looked at other problems on here that resembled mine on similar products and they alot of them point straight to flyback. I'm on the verge off ordering one cause they aren't too expensive. But I also know exactly where that mindstate can lead someone too. I'm sure you all know what I mean if you are in any kind of repair business. Any knowledge would be appreciated. Thanks.

Worked great until.........................

It could quite possibly be the flyback and horizontal. However I would suggest getting the service manual for your set. It will give you the info so you dont replace things you dont need. The following link has your service manual for your set.They also offer free unlimited support along with the manual. Also if you'd rather have it emailed to you they will do that also. You just have to go back to the site after you order and provide an email address requesting they email the manual and support instructions to you instead of mailing them. Thats the best way to go instead of blindly buying parts that you may not need. Hers the link
