Question about Samsung LE32R74BDX 32 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

3 Answers

Picture Flashing My Samsung LE32R7 TV has a problem that's really annoying. When I'm watching Sky TV sometimes the picture 'flashes' whenever a bright red or blue image is shown in the broadcast. Is this a common fault? How can it be cured? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    Same here - seems it started at the adverts or titles of a programme or when there was a "transition" in the show like when a graphic came on screen to introduce round 2 of a game show.



    Now it just does it whenever and is really really annoying - so tempted to chuck it through the damn window !



    I heard about the compatability issue with this model and a certain model of sky + box (amstrad???!!!)



    Is there a fix or is it one of those - sky say its samsungs fault and samsung say its skys fault? (sky/amstrad)



    May just put a claim in before the warrantys up !



    It's JUST done it now with the "e-on" advert - was a fully red screen at the time !!! why would a particular colour cause that rescan effect?



    Help - anyone...





    Cheers - Doc Norton

Hey there,

Just to let you know my issue is now resolved but it's not a nice easy solution unfortunately.

I had to return my TV to Samsung for 2 weeks - Appollo2000 very kindly substituted our 32" TV with a 14 crappy LCD (didn't want to know when I suggested we should get a 32")

No easy fix by the looks of it...

I had this problem too, fortunately I have a sky engineer friend who told me it is a known compatibility issue, all you need to force the latest firmware upgrade down to your sky box and hey presto, it will fix it. It depends on the type of box you have as to how to force the firmware download, but just google it and you'll find the combination of keys to press that will put the sky box into receiving a new firmware upgrade from sky.

Hope it helps you, it did me cos it was driving me crazy

I have a similar problem but my picture flashes black and white and the sound goes at the same. Also sometimes it will flash pink and blue. I've read elsewhere that the issue is a known problem with compatability between Samsung tv's and sky boxes. Apparently the box needs to be replaced but I'm unsure what type of box. I've read perhaps a PACE sky box could fix the problem. I think the best option would be to contact Samsung - that's what I'm going to do.

Samsung le40f71bx picture flickers on and off with hd source


I've had similar for a long time, now the picture only lasts a few minutes or seconds. Have to turn the TV off, wait 5 minutes, turn it back on. That's with Sky HD. Used to be the same with SCART but I don't use that any more, and I get it with the Wii on Component. However HD DVD and Blu Ray players are no problem!

See my post here - http://www.avforums.com/forums/lcd-led-lcd-tvs/1622157-samsung-f71-flashing-pattern-fault.html

Way out of warranty but really just need some repair expert to tell me what needs fixing. Taking the cover off there are very few components and look easy to replace, and seen some on ebay. A fix from Samsung would be vastly in excess of the value of the TV.
