If unit not covered by warranty, you or qualified lcd technician will need to investigate unit's "switch-mode-power-supply" for common (all brands) defects that can be the cause of this type symptom. HAVE YOU BEEN TO YOUTUBE YET???? Go there first!!! Then come back to FIXYA and tell us what you will do. Do your research first, then and only then do a comment and rate this response on fixya. When "very strange" things start to occur with any type (plasma or CCFL) lcd display, the first place I would investigate is the power supply board!! 12fixlouie

    jowrench55, Yes! If the units power supply board is functioning within specified limits you should also check the T-con board ribbon cable and wire cable high density connectors and then move on into the board surface-mounted integrated circuit components. May need to use low power inspection microscope (5x to 20x) to verify all component leads have solid (gas-tight) connections to the copper foil traces on the printed circuit board. If doing a DIY repair, you should always document your work with digital camera close ups before removing connectors or boards from the main chassis. Good luck on the hunt. 12fixlouie

    This was my original post for answer. Someone on here suggested you tube, and possibly warranty . They had a fix for my exact tv on you tube. Mine was out of warranty, of course, so I thought. I pushed the issue with samsung and got mine fixed for free. It wound up be the "capacitors" per phone call with samsung . They suggested to replace nine of them. They also sent info to repair shop, who in turn called me to set up appointment. Fixed for free ,and a great repair shop also. Thanks so much for suggestions for this post.

My brand new Asus Laptop's Touch screen just stoped working.


If you recently dropped your laptop or even spilled something on it accidentally, it would prevent your touch screen from working.

Sometimes the video card in laptops burns out depending upon how much and how long you keep your computer running and how many different software and programs you run at the same time.

If you're not familiar with your laptop I would recommend you ask someone who's familiar with computers, to take your video card out and check it into an compatible laptop and see if that's your problem. If it is, you would just have to replace it in order to work.

Sometimes, there are two possibilities that occur at the same time, and I recently discussed the first one above, and the other is that both your screen and video card managed to shortage almost at the same time.

I hope this helps you.

Slow starting tv


This is common for LCD and plasma big screen tv sets.

If it takes over 2 minutes for the picture to show up, there might be something wrong, at which point you should call/talk to someone from where you purchased it, or contact the manufacturer.

As it dries out, the sugar starts to conduct electricity.
