Question about Samsung LA32A450 32 in. HD-Ready LCD TV

Open Question

Hi. I have a Samsung LA32S81BD. Approx 2 years old. One side of the screen has become distorted and seems to be getting worse. The side in question is the one with the manual push button controls (source, vol, ch etc) The only way I can explain what I mean by 'distorted' is a ripple, wave of ghosting almost. The distortion runs the full height of the screen and approx 250mm towards the centre of screen, from the mentioned side. Watching standard and digital tv, dvds, austar etc makes no difference

SOURCE: picture distortion in samsung LCD SB42W5

This can be a failure in the panel itself, or the driver circuits to the panel. It is serviced by factory level diagnostics and board replacements. This take specialized training, tools, and setups to perform.

Considering the set is 5+ years old, it most likely will not be cost effective to service. There is also the possiblilty that the circuit boards may no longer be available. I would suggest to replace the set rather than service it.

When servicing a set with a number of years of use, there are many other components and circuit boards that can potentialy fail. As electronic components age and have use, the posibility of failure increases.

Check all of your cables on the back of the tv and your sources such as Cable,Sat box and DVD palyer to make sure they are fully inserted into the input and output connectors. Some times Component cables will work loose and you end up with a missing color. Temprature changes can affect intermittant connections. If that does work then you have a bad Main bd.

SOURCE: TV will not turn on.

Same problem with mine. This is a typical problem with this television. You need to replace swollen capacitors on the power board.

SOURCE: Samsung 46" TV. Model

Hi,
This is problem of lcd panel (screen) that is going bad, however, in few tvs, T-Con board was defective that is also part of lcd panel but available separately, t-con board is located on top center of lcd panel at rear side, replace it that might fix tv problem.
Required t-con board is available in ShopJimmy.com for $73 (click the link to view board image and price info) and call local tv repairman to replace it if you are not handy with electronics stuff repair or have no prior experience.
If t-con board replacement does not solve the issue then lcd panel (screen) will be replaced but it would cost you approx new tv price.
Hope these info will help you.
Let me know if you have additional question.
Thanks.

The Samsung DVD recorder does not record. Is it cheaper to repair or cheaper to buy another? This combi is approx 2 years old.


I would say for a 2 years old set, its better to buy a new one than repairing it as new one is far more cheaper. DVD recorders are becoming more and more cheaper as BLURAY recorders already hit the market. My advice, get a new one and dump the old one. You will get 1 year warranty too for buying the new one. If u repair the old one, there's no guarantee that it wont get spoiled again.
