Question about Samsung Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a samsung LE37R88BD. It firstly switches on and then Off with the standby light flashing constantly. When it comes on it has a colourful screen with lines going vertical and horizontaly. I have replaced the power supply board and it is not this. Sometimes the picture flashes on for a second then off again and then it goes blank and then the process starts all over again. Please Help!

    Thank you for your help. Could you please tell me if the board you are describing is a SAMSUNG LE37R88BD CONTROL BD 06A69-1A T370XW02 V.6?

    It's not the serial numbers which I am concerned about but the fact they call it a control board and you call it a main board. Before I purchase this item and part with my cash I need to be sure you are both talking about the same board. Is a control board the same as a main board?

    Thank you Lisa

What you see is called video corruption and is caused by a defective memory buffer inside the image processor. Since the processor is soldered on the mainboard you will have to replace the board.

    Yes, it's the exact same thing - different terminology.

Sony Grand WegaKDF-E50A10 standby light constant flashing green

Sounds like the main system control-chroma IC fault. These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power led, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. Viewing it in "Mosaic" will make surf easy.
Blinking codes details to many popular brand TVs are given.

Samsung 55" flat panel lcd tv is not coming on the standby button light stayes on but no picture coming on it doesn't come on with the switch only by plugin it to the outlet.

Does the backlight come on? or even flash on and off when the TV is switched on? I presume the standby light is showing 'blue' then. Do you have any sound? Also, when the TV remote is pressed, does the standby light flicker?
