Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Hello, I bought a "TLX-04011C: 40" HD Widescreen LCD TV with Digital ATSC Tuner" in December 2008. I was watching TV tonight, I heard a loud pop, and saw sparks come out of the top of the television. The television is now unplugged.

What probably happened is that a capacitor blew it's top in the unit. First off, I would try calling the manufacturer about it and see what they can do for you (generally there is only a 1 year warranty but you can try). Otherwise, the capacitor (if that is what blew, they do make a loud pop when they explode), should just need to be replaced. If you can't distinguish the part that blew, an electronics store should be able to figure out which part is needed and solder it back in. If it is just a capacitor, then it should be a relatively cheap fix. If you want to attempt to replace it yourself, digikey.com will have the capacitor you need. Again I am assuming it is a cap, but to be sure, you would have to open up the tv to take a look which will void the warranty. I will be happy to answer further questions you have on this, but you need to decide how you want to proceed.

Let me know how this works out for you.

There may be an issue with "cold" solder joints on the power supply board, or there may be a failing component on that board as well.

Some things to look for also are bad solder joints particularly on the fuses of the inverter board or boards depending on production run. Those are going to be rectangular items marked with "8A" on them near where the multiwire connector attaches to that board under the plastic cover. As well as any bulging electrolytic capacitors. Since there usually more than one in parallel if one shows as bad- replace them all
A can of cold shot help locate the specific area or component of the 24 volt section of the power supply that is the issue.

No signal on samsung 40"lcd tv


IF it is an ATSC tuner ,newer type ,( digital tuner) it needs better antenna, most importantly Check the cable from Antenna to the connector. using multimeter , put on resistance ,any, anc check both ends of the cable, when there is no change on the multimeter consider the wire is broke somewhere. Make sure the antenna is pointing towards the tv station. also check www.antennaweb.org i think to see the DTV channels in your area. GL

I don't know how a program it, since you change digital.


So far as I know the HLN series does not have an ATSC tuner, thus no over the air (OTA) reception. You can probably still get a $40 coupon for an OTA ATSC to NTSC converter. Note that will NOT get you high definition (HD). With Dish you can get HD receivers that do get OTA ATSC both HD and SD. With Direct, no OTA AFAIK. With cable you would need a QAM tuner, not in your TV AFAIK to get clear channels as required for locals. Otherwise cable needs a Set Top Box for digital and scrambled channels although the standard definition (SD) non-scrambled channels work with your NTSC tuner. Too bad there seem to be no ATSC to 5-cable RCA or HDMI HD converters except Dish. -Ken
