Samsung HD tv help

I bought an HD samsung tv a little over a year ago, and recently, pretty much every time i turn it on, the pixels seem scattered all over the tv, moving around, i dont get what the problem it, its not the cable, because the pixels remain with or without cable, and they stay on when im playing my ps3, when i turn it on and off numerous times, sometimes it goes back to normal, but now its gotten really bad, can anyone help me out?

Is it a Plasma Television? I recently had a customer have the same issue with a 2 year old model Samsung 50" plasma TV. In his case one Of the computer panels failed. He didn't have a service plan and the warrenty was out, so i directed him to Samsungs help line. They inturn directed him to a authorized repair center. Repairs were roughly $800. Thats a possibility but it may not be the same as your issue. Try leaving your TV running for a little while when it has the issue, and see if it eventually goes away. Some older plasma models have started to require a warm up time for the pixel cells. This has been a down fall of plasma that for the most part no longer exists on newer models.
I hope eveything works out.

Have a great day

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 32 inch samsung lcd tv has got faint black lines running down the screen ,its nearly 4 years old but i expected it to last longer than that,and ive had sky hd box recently would that have anything todo...


Are these lines on both side of the screen or what location are they in? They can be caused by watching 4:3 television with the black bars on both sides. Watching 16:9 full screen HD wont cause issues with that. If only on the sides there is not much you can do except put a pure white screen on the TV and leave that on for at least 6 hours. This will age the panel a little but in theroy wil even the pixel burn you have to make the lines less noticable. Please take a few moments to rate my answer. Thank you

Turn on tv and purple pixels like snow are spread around tv


Write down your serial # (found on the back or on the side) and your model # and call 800-Samsung. The issue has to do with the capacitors and if your TV was manufactured between Dec 2007 and May 2008 they will send a repairman out to repair for free (one time only). I just called and they are sending someone out to repair mine. Apparently there are tons of people experience the same problem.

HD screen


You should verify that you are not just simply losing reception from a fault in the antenna.

If the signal is okay from the antenna, it is possible that the TV is having a failure in its tuner or IF sectons just to mention a starting point.

Video problems with my westinghouse LTV 32 W 3 HD


This seems to be associated with the overheating of some component. On my set I need to check that the backlight is set to a low level. On reset it automatically adjusts to a level above maximum and the green screen will appear in a few minutes. I took the back off and that helped some.

When our tv does this,it seems like it's warming up. Sometimes it will eventually come on. Sometimes not. We discovered by accident that turning the floor fan on it (towards the back) helps.I didn't think it was that dusty back there, yet it seems to make a difference.
