Question about Samsung TXG2547 25" TV

1 Answer

Samsung TXG2547 I have recurring horizontal white line on a black screen, which seems to happen after the set has been turned on for a while. Shutting it off and coming back to it later results in a complete picture again for a short time, until it heats back up. I know nothing about repairing TV sets and am wondering if fixing this 10 year old Samsung model is worth the time & money?

The picture on your TV is created by an electron gun firing at the phosphor coating on the screen. The position of the guns beam is controlled by magnetic coils, which are driven by scan circuitry.

Normally, the gun scans left to right, top to bottom to create each single frame of the moving image.

From what you are saying, it sounds like there is a fault in the vertical control system somewhere - basically the gun is going left to right but not up and down, resulting in your picture being squashing down to one row high!

It is unlikely to be a fault with the magnetic coils. My guess would be a faulty resistor that is breaking down (and changing its value) as it gets hot.

It should be a relatively easy to fix, but given the age/value of the TV it might be worth considering a replacement.

Samsung pn51d440a5d thin black horizontal lines across complete screen,2 to 3 inches apart,replaced y sustain and y buffer pcb


These lines a are technically called as 'vertical retrace' lines. There will be thin white horizontal lines, at about 1" apart, all around the screen. Even though, you've decreased the brightness and contrast to its minimum, these line will be there. There are many reasons for this fault. If the screen voltage is more than normal, or the supply voltage to video output transistors are less than normal [due to faulty smoothing capacitor], this fault can occur. If you're sound in electronics, check this link. It has details about how to check for this fault. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

Horizontal line no pictures


if a white line left to right the problem is in the vertical output circuit of the set, bad solder connections or a bad part.

Just got this tv from friend. has no remote. screen is black. sound is good. when you push menu button, white line goes across horizontally the screen.


The horizontal line indicates the vertical deflection circuit is not working. Either the set is stuck in service mode for adjusting color (turns off vertical), or the deflection circuit has failed.

Some RCA TV sets have a "Service" switch in the back, down near the bottom of the set. Most of the newer sets use a combination of remote control and front panel buttons to get into service mode, and that can be turned off by unplugging the set and plugging it back in. Try looking for the mechanically operated service switch in the back first.

Can I see the difference


Visually, there is very little difference to the eye of the average consumer between 720p and 1080. However, 720p can deliver a slightly smoother-looking image, due to the fact that lines and pixels are displayed in a consecutive pattern, rather than in an alternate pattern.your tv is display format is 720p and blu ray is 1080p. what happen is it will be scaled into 720p. old tv set format is 480p 720p represents 1,280 pixels displayed across the screen horizontally and 720 pixels down the screen vertically. This arrangement yields 720 horizontal lines on the screen, which are, in turn, displayed progressively, or each line displayed following another. 1080p, on the other hand, represents 1,080 horizontal lines displayed sequentially. This means all lines are displayed during the same pass. 1080p is the highest quality HD display format. 480p represents 720 pixels displayed across the screen horizontally and 480 pixels down the screen vertically. This arrangement yields 480 horizontal lines on the screen, which are, in turn, displayed progressively, or each line displayed following another.
