Hi,

The only solution to fix this problem is to get itrepaired.Th repair will cost anything between $300-$400. the problem is with the convergence ICs.

My guess, without the benefit of some hands-on testing, would be the high voltage flyback and HOT are defective.

Few troubleshooting steps you can try:

1)Do a hard reset by unpluging all the cords for 4hrs and then plug it back.
2)The whacking test is to just bang or smack the set with your hand on the back, side, top, etc., to see if there are loose connections or cold solder joints inside that are acting up. If so, the banging should knock them back to normal and the set should restore. You might have to use some creative banging and some have had to put a book or magazine under one corner to torque the chassis enough to get it to work reliably.

Goodluck,
Please don't forget to rate the solution as fixya..

It sounds like the problem is in the circuit board. The TV should go in for professional repair - electric shock is no fun. Good luck.

The picture on my tv slowly started going out and began making a weird sound. Kind of like an internal fan was turning on and off. The power on button has "Timer," "Lamp," and "Standby/Temp" flashing. What...


It sounds like the color wheel has failed and will need to be replaced. I would recommend calling a technician to do this job. You can call 1-800-samsung to find the nearest service center.

Pictures get ghost image & colour veriation


You get a picture with sharp and correct colored parts as well as parts blurred with wrong colors?
I assume this only happens indoors, when you use the flash?
It sounds like you are using Slow Synchro flash mode.
Try switching the flash mode to Auto instead.

Stability system engaged wtf?


This system usually kicks on when it thinks the wheels are spinning out. Thus...it slows the wheels to regain control. It can also happen in the rain when the car senses it is hydroplaning. If none of these things are possible, it's probably a broken sensor or something.

Hi, and unfortunately I am facing the same issue. My TV blinks GREEN LED for a few seconds then starts flashing RED led. The result I hear from this is that it is the SSB Panel and the estimated cost for service is $600.00 it sounds like you are STARTING with the problem. I began that way too. If you are under warranty, call Philips NOW!
