Question about Samsung LN-S4041D 40 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

The sound is popping in and out on my samsung flatscreen tv (LCD). About 2 weeks ago the network stations started fading out till now I only get NBC, and it is spotty as well. (I just use an antenna) I thought maybe there was interference on the airwaves but now the DVDs sound is being effected as well. It repeatedly goes off for a millisecond then comes back on. There doesn't seem to be any pattern to the loss, sometimes it will be fine for a few minutes, other times it is impossible to watch. Any clues?

Samsung 40" flat screen looses sound


this problem started on my LN-S4051D a couple of years ago. eventually the sound stopped working altogether. I then started using my surround sound speakers for the TV via optical out but soon that stopped working as well. I recently took the TV to a repair shop who said that the main board is bad and needs to be replaced. Labor plus parts was going to cost me $400. I said no thanks and paid for the estimate. Good luck.

My Vizio LCD TV screen fades to dark. Sound stays on.


I w having this same issue when watching a Blu-Ray disc. I found it to be dependent upon what picture mode the TV was set to. By this I mean certain picture modes would cause the TV to dim during dark scenes of a movie. Changing the picture mode helped a lot.

No picture, have sound to my tv


I've found a 19" flatscreen monitor that wouldnt come on a few weeks ago, I "googled" it and found that when you open it there are capacitators(caps) that have flat tops, on the youtube video it said that that was their problem, so i ran to Radioshack and got 2w new ones..5 minutes later its working like new!...the thing is is that you most likely have a few(or 1) bad capacitators. Im still researching a lot, but if you have the will you could open the unit all the way(take pictures to remember how it goes together, really not that hard) and check for capacitators that are not flat on the tops, replace those(same uf, but the volts have to be more then the one u removed!!) ,make sure the - side on the cap is going back into the same - place it was(if - and positive are backwards they will pop again at once. basically take some of the things I mention here and google them and you will be on yuor way. a cap (capacitator) could be broke(popped) on the video card, cousing bad video or no video, a cap could be popped on the sound area, causing the sound to act funny, a cap could be popped on the powerboard, causing electrical problems that vary widely. so calling a pro: he would open it check for popped caps, then he would charge you crazy amount for a whole board, just because its easier and faster then soldering your tv boards...i hoped i guided you somwhat....i bought my first nonworking 19 lcd tv for 20 and im on my way to google till its working lol...good luck! ps, pics of popped capacitators and how to remove them are on the web, i just hoped to guid you some more

My 32" Toshiba LCD HDTV keeps freezing on the same channel and when I try to change the channel or input selection, it doesn't respond(to the remote or directly on the TV.) The only thing that works is...


These problems are normally caused by the TV station.

1. Call the TV station responsible and ask for the network engineer.
2. Tell him the Day, Time, Channel, Program, basically every little detail about the problem.
3. The station will normally check it and fix it.

Also, contact Toshiba and tell them. Really this is part of the DTV Transition thing. Many stations are reconfiguring and settin up equipment. They sometimes make mistakes. Don't worry much about it unless it continues for more than a week. If you like the station, I would call right away.

Help with Sharp flat panel tv


I can only guess that the NBC station signal is drifting or weak causing a loss of audio. It is possible the tuning chip inside the TV has a problem with that frequency but not very likly.

Sony Bravia XBR-2 32-inch LCD with popping noise problem


Unfortunately, we have the same problem. We hear popping and our sound goes lower. It is not the cable box for us, it's definitely the TV; however, it happens, on our set, after its been on for a few minutes and then goes away after half an hour or so -- however, this evening its been happening for the past hour and the TV has been on for the evening.

No sound on four channels while all other channels sound is fine.


You most likely have the SAP1.gif mode activated. Look for a button on your remote or an item in the on-screen menus of your television1.gif called MTS or SAP. You want to set this to "Main" "Normal" or "Stereo" (or even "Mono") mode to hear the regular television sound.

If it is in SAP (Secondary Audio Program) mode, as I believe yours is, you may hear no sound or a different audio program. Often this is a translation to another language, such as Spanish, and other times (notably with PBS stations) it is an unrelated audio (often music) feed. On some stations there may be no sound at all with the audio mode set to SAP.
