Daewoo plasma i have a two year old daewoo plasma. a lightning storm may have zapped it. there is sound, but the picture is not right. i can see the outline of whatever the picture is, but it looks like a bunch of laser light dots instead of anything real. is there anyway to fix this? how hard would it be to fix it? thank you for any suggestions.

My samsung tv had a loud bang, now no picture only sound


The noise was likely a blown capacitor and there may be an unusual odor like an electrical fire. Do not worry the TV should not be a fire risk but will require a repair person to replace the capacitor and check internal fuse, etc. If you have recently had a lightning storm you can inquire with your insurance agent to see if they offer coverage for the damage. Based on age of TV it may be cheaper to buy a new replacement than to repair the TV. Generally if TV Is more than 4 years old you will want to buy a new one but it will cost much less than the original purchase when you buy new.

Dude! You fried it! Sound board can be replaced, but what else was stressed? Replace it, use a good surge protector, and turn the thing off during storms, light a candle and cuddle with your sweetie.

Screen froze during lightning storm. no picture now. When powering on screen lights and then dims - no picture, no sound


You might have had a power surge.Try unplugging your TV for 5 minutes and plugging it back in. If you cannot get a picture from any device such as a DVD player and cable then your TV needs serviced call a repair man. Good Luck!

That cable could be the wake-on-LAN cable, it is used for the connection of the card to the motherboard's wake-on-LAN slot, this is only used if your motherboard supports wake-on-LAN and you want to open your pc remotely from another location. But if don't need remote pc connection you don't need to install this cable.

Daewoo DTS42 plasma problems, please help!


The PDP (plasma display panel) is defective and needs to be replaced. The big problem is that Daewoo no longer carries replacement panels for this model. I'm in the same boat you're in. I hate to throw away the tv so I'm waiting to see if I can find a replacement panel on ebay.

Check the cable line thats attached to the bad set on another set side by side. If the other set still has no channels your going to need to trouble shoot or replace the tuner control bad and the tuner assy.
