What was the need to replace capacitors. if so on which circuit? Hope you have replaced the right value and type of the capacitor. Observe whether soldered points getting into other pcb track. Clean them again and give a try.

    The present day Tvs have changed amazingly to a new design. The problem you are reporting looks like eeprom. It might be partly currupted. Or if program can be loaded externally, it can be tried.

    You have to take the manufacture's support through their service center. The parts may not be available pre-programmed. Even if avilable exact version of the software should be checked.

Samsung LE32R74BDX 32 in......


just spoke to Samsung support and it turns out that the freeview tuner had froze and needed resetting. To do this put TV on standby and then push in series these buttons on the remote: 'info, menu, mute, power' the TV will then turn itself on and display a menu. Press the 'down arrow' untill you've highlighted option 12 - 'reset' and then press the 'right arrow' to enter the option. TV will turn off and when you turn back on it will start in 'plug & play' mode as if new. Set the time and country options and then it will perform a complete scan. I've just retuned mine and all back to normal. Hoorah!!!! :-)

After power outage tv will not work


I have sort of simular problem with my TV it plays from sources but the freeview is not working + LCD is dim. You can try INFO-MENU-MUTE-ON and select Reset, you have to rescan all your channels again. I currently investigating reprogramming the flash part of the freeview controller via the service port or buying a new controller PCB. Thats as far as I am currently. Thanks T.

Samsung LE40R73BD DTV freezing, wont chnage channel


i've just some digging around and found that you can access a service menu and perform a reset which sorted the issue for me.

Access the service menu by pressing, in order, whilst the tv is in stand-by mode:

info
menu
mute
power

when the tv comes back on you will have a service menu; select option 12 (reset) the tv will then switch off.

this will reset your TV back to factory defaults.

turn tv back on and you should be prompted to go through the plug and play setup again - go through everything and then all should start working OK (it did for me)
