    I did replaced the fly-back transformer but it dosen't fix the problem, I also check continuity on the power supply glass fuse and is OK. I been advise that the problem is the green CRT, but I have to be sure about it, to invest more money on it. Thanks.

This is a major problem faced by samsung lcd and hdtv customers these days.... The problem is with thte display not the audio system.. Don you have the warranty for this tv... how long its been since you bought it..if you have warranty its well n good other wise you have to take your mechanic who can fix the display for anywhere around $350 - $400...

It seems that you have an issue with the power board. You could also have faulty convergence modules causing the blending of colors.

I wouldn't advise you to open the set yourself, because of the complicated circuitry and high voltage. It is safest and best to get TV repairman to look at this issue and provide a fix/repair.

    Well, if the problem is just the CRT, that wouldn't cause the TV to stop powering up. You would just have convergence / video issues, and not power up issues. I am not saying that the green CRT is good, it could still be defective and needs replacement.

    The click sound is probably the power relay being energized. I think the issue is definitely to do with the power board / supply. Look for busted capacitor, etc. They should be easy enough to identify..they will have a swollen cap (top). Also check the relays, MOS, rectifier diode bridge, switching IC's, etc. It would probably be easier to simply replace the whole board.

    I'd recommend THIS link for a service manual for your TV. They also have many spare replacement parts, and they can help you locate the necessary parts online if need be. Also, if you purchase the service manual from, they will provide free unlimited online assistance while you install the necessary components.

    Hope that helps!

    Well, as you can see, there can be many reasons for this issue, and only a spot check and testing can really pinpoint the cause. We are just providing all possible causes, but unfortunately, we cannot physically test anything ourselves.

    @Kishkane: The gentleman said he already replaced the flyback..hence his warranty is already voided..

Red exclamation point on verizon set top box


How to reset your Set Top Box to fix common problems FiOS TV Residential...
Resetting your Router and Set-Top Box can resolve a variety of issues such as:
  • Missing Interactive Media Guide (IMG) or On Demand menu
  • Unresponsive Set-Top Box
  • DVR recording problems
If you are having any of these issues, you may need to reset your Router and Set-Top Box. Will resetting my Set-Top Box erase the selections I have programmed into my remote?
No, all settings and selections you've entered such as device codes, favorite channels, and recent On Demand selections are saved and available after resetting your Set-Top Box.

Resetting your Router and Set-Top Box
Always reset your Router first and then check to see if that resolves the issue. Resetting your router may be all that is needed.
Important note about your router To avoid problems with your FiOS TV service, make sure your router is plugged in and turned on at all times. Even if you are not currently using the Internet, your router still needs be turned on so that FiOS TV can function properly.
To manually reset your router:
  1. Unplug the power cord to your Router for 15 seconds and then plug it back into the electrical outlet.
  2. Wait 30 seconds and then check to see if this resolves the trouble. If you still have the problem, follow the steps below to reset your Set-Top Box.
To manually reset your Set-Top Box:
  1. Unplug the power cord to your Set-Top Box from the electrical outlet for 15 seconds and then plug it back in.

    Note: Don't confuse the power cord that provides electricity to your Set-Top Box with the coaxial cable that is connected to the back of your Set-Top Box. Unplugging the coaxial cable will not reset your Set-Top Box. Since many issues can occur if your coaxial cable is not securely fastened, now would be a good time to check to ensure all connections are securely connected.
  2. Wait for the time to appear on the front of the Set-Top Box, then power it on.
  3. Wait several minutes while the Interactive Media Guide updates.
  4. Check to see if this resolves the trouble. If you still have the problem, your Set-Top Box may need to be re-initialized. Contact the Fiber Solutions Customer Support for further assistance.
I have to reset my Set-Top Box frequently, is this normal?
No, if you routinely have to reset your Set-Top Box more than three times a week, it is likely there is an issue with your Set-Top Box that needs to be resolved. Contact the Fiber Solutions Customer Support for further assistance.


also you can call for tech support at Dial 1-800-VERIZON (1-800-837-4966)
