Question about Samsung PCL5415RB 54" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Crt coolant leak onto pwb

I had this happen to me a few weeks ago on a pcl5415r. the tv was sparking from the bottom and a pwb (just above the bottom of the unit) caught fire. i wouldnt consider a cooling loop necesarilly a wear item and i was lucky i was right there when it happen to shut the tv off. would it be unreasonable to ask samsung to cover such a repair. i've got an estimate from the local samsung service place $500-$600. they showed me the oily spot when coolant had leaked onto a circuit board.

    sticker shows september/2001 for mfg date. this appears to be a common problem, they should've issued a recall. these tv's can catch fire, and burn up a house. fortunately i was right there when the circuit board flare up and started burning. many times you turn on a tv a walk away for a moment. my two sisters in law have the same exact model part of the same purchase.

My washer is giving out sparks from underneath when the drum is spinning. What causes this and could I finish doing the load inside safely.


No do not finish the wash.This could be a shorted electrical wire or motor.Unplug the washer.Remove the wet wash and put it in the bath tub for now.

You will need to siphon out the water or remove it by bucket.Continuing the wash could lead to electric shock or a fire.

This happend to me 12 yrs ago and the washer caught was a bad motor and the grease caught fire under it.

Samsung httx75 reciever started on fire

UPDATE - I sent in my unit and they repaired it free of charge, shipping both ways was paid by them as well. I had zero problems.

I have to admit, I am a little taken back still by the smoke bomb, but Samsung handled it professionally and took care of the unit.
