Flickering blue screen problem

Hi Neals!

I wanted to thank you for your solution post. It has been utmost valuable to me. We already spent $75 for some doofus repair man to come look at the tv, and he didnt even open it up!! He decided the tuner was busted and that would cost some $1k to fix. (mind you, he didnt sell new tv's)

So with your post, and lovely pictures, we opened up the tv and found that we had the same problem. We could only get to the power board, the other 2 boards were WAY too difficult to unplug and get to... though we did get a sideways look at the caps and they *seemed* ok.

The circuit board is now at the shop to be soldered because we dont have that skill.......... Hopefully that fixes the problem since it fixed yours!

Glad it was helpful! I had researched quite a bit before I started and realized there was a real lack of detailed info for the wdx2x25 models so I figured I would take some photos and post while I was at it.

If fixing the PWR board doesn't do the trick, getting the other two out is not as bad as you might think - just tedius. The V26 Chassis Replacment manual (different than the main service manual) has reasonablely detailed step by step instructions to disassemble. Let me know if you need it and I can email.

Good luck!

Screen goes all blue or red then shuts down


Please look here on the site under tips---you will find my post there for this problem--these sets had problems with bad picture tubes but you may be able to adjust the controls on the focus screen block to make it function.

see attached photo of the block and look for the instructions under tips here by your model number.

Hi, i'm having trouble with my HLN 5065w samsung. The color on the screen starts out normal, then flickers to neon purple and green. then the screen goes black completely and I have to unplug it. Do you...


Hi there,

Your Convergence has gone out and very likely needs work, this is the most common problem inthese big screens.
You may not be able to realign that picture without some new parts unfortunately.
There are some circuits that align the RED, GREEN, and, BLUE, picture tubes to make the picture you see.

The components that do that job are called "convergence" circuitry. The usual components to fail are the "Convergence Amplifiers" which are usual a pair of Integrated Circuits mounted to a large heat sink.

the repair cost is between 200 to 400 usd.

Post further comments if you need more help or information...

Good Luck!!

Thanks

Blue screen with flickering horizontal lines


Sounds like the 1000uf capacitors on the FMT board need replacing. This is a common symptom with that chassis. There are three 1000uf caps that fail on that PC Board

Cloudy TV Screen


If you can remove the front screen, look down into each CRT tube lens, blue, green & red see which ones are cloudy. The cloudy ones need the fluid changed which is a coolant. Shops charge between $75 to $150 a tube to change.

Flickering blue picture


I finally got around to dismantling the TV. This is no mean task. The chassis is tethered to the rest of the set my over a dozen wiring harnesses and a few of these cannot be disconnected near the chassis but instead require removing the “right support” near the air duct and taking the shield off the lamp ballast. Once the chassis assembly is out, it is a further significant task to disassemble it to get at the various PWBs (POWER, FMT and DM) having the suspect caps. I’m sure reassembling everything will be a fun job!

I have not yet had a chance to fix and reassemble but I wanted to post this no as I’m not sure when I will get around to it.

I did find six of the fourteen known-problem caps to be visibly bulging -- both 3300s and two of the four 1000s on the PWR PWB plus two of the four 1000s on the FMT PWB (see photos below). Ironically of the four 1000s on the DM PWB, which I have heard are the most common to go bad, were bulging and I considered skipping these as the DM it is the toughest board to extricate from the chassis, however I figured I had come this far and I would just as soon replace all twelve 1000 uFs as the parts cost $0.23 and I really never want to have to do this again.

If I had to bet, the two 10V 3300uF caps on POWER board, which were actually leaking black goo, are the actual culprits, but with four of the 1000 uFs also bulging it is probable only a matter of time until they failed as well.

Here is the POWER PWB with the known-problem caps (C9A37, C9A38, C9A51, C9A52, C9A61 and C9A62) highlighted:

here's the FMT PWB with the known-problem caps (C8F19, C8F21, C8F22 and C8F27) highlighted:

and the DM PWB with the known-problem caps (C81A2, C81A3, C81B3 and C81B4) highlighted:
