Question about NEC LCD4000E 40 in. HDTV Television

1 Answer

LCD screens Hi, I have a NEC LCD4000, 40" LCD panel which is showing signs of deterioration. One way to look at it is that there are dark patches on the screen, another way is to say that there is a bright spot/patch in the center of the screen. If I disassemble the screen I can lift the front glass (id this a filter?) and the LCD panel below looks fine. Is there a way to rectify this problem, can the glass screen (connected to the LCD by wires) be plain glass?? Thanks Phil

No you cant change the glass on the panel it is a sealed unit.The lcd panel is the most expensive part of the tv to replace and usually cost more than the tv is worth. LCd panels do go bad after years of service. some times a digital board can cause picture problems but from your description it sounds like the LCD panel. It may be time for a new set.

Half the screen isa dark, left side

Most likely you have a faulty LCD panel tabs. This can be verified sometimes by turning set on and tapping or squeezing the top left side of the TV. The only true fix is to replace the panel. I've been told that Samsung may offer to replace the panel or give you a discount on a new TV. Samsung is know to have LCD panels with premature tab failure. So it may be worth while to contact Samsung and see what they can do for you. There are videos on youtube that show case the problems and show you how to patch the problem. just type in "LCD panel tab" in the youtube search box.

My MT 1045 projector shows yellow, cyan, and magenta dot clusters in separate places on the viewed screen. I have replaced the bulb and it makes no difference. Is there another deteriorating component...

the "dot clusters" you're seeing are dust particles that build up on the 3 lcd panels of the projectors. they're fairly easy to clean. you'll need to remove the top cover to get access to the panels, and use an air can to blow the dust particles away. be careful not to tilt the air can too much 'cause you'll end up spraying the panels w/ the liquid substance inside the can.

Screen shows blue patches on white also red lines on dark colour

Replace the video board, if you can find one. Letting it cool down will not help any.

NEC LCD1712 Problem

Please try your monitor on a friends computer.

This is a very odd problem so you should make sure it's being caused by the monitor.

If it is the monitor, it's a tough one. It could be a bad main board, or a bad LCD panel.

I would check your warranty status. It sounds like it may need to have the signals checked on the board to determine which of the two parts are causing the problem.

Samsung Monitor Syncmaster 913V Montior Screen shows patches of screen on desktop and playing videos

Sounds like your LCD panel has gone bad.

If the unit is under warranty, take it to a Samsung repair shop. If it is not under warranty, go buy a new one. LCD panels are usually more expensive then buying a whole new monitor.
