Hi, I have a samsung LNT4661FX/XAC its been around 3 years.. Recently there are a bunch of red dots appearing on the screen no matter what channel or input its on.. they stay there even if I close it and reopen it! The only way to temporarly remove them is to unplug the enitre tv and then replug and start it.. But they always return! And slowly slowly they are becoming more and more.. Is there a way to fix this or imy only option is sending it for repairs? Thanks a lot!!

The driver board is going bad it sounds like and if you do not call up and get it fixed under warranty, as it should still be under a warranty, then its going to be a nice hefty repair bill. Good Luck Ps Please dont forget to rate this thread

SOURCE: LCD TV SCREEN PROBLEM RED HORIZONTAL LINES OF DOTS ALL OVER SCREEN PLEASE HELP

I unplugged the TV and now the picture is back.I read that the LCD's are vunerable to static build up so unless my daughter is using her TV I unplug it.

I was thinking about getting a large LCD for the family room but I'm not going to until they improve on this technology.

Good luck to everyone!.

Cheers.

I have this problem too. I have had a technician over to service it twice already and I picked up on a few things he did to fix it. Here is what I learned. the raining pixels has to do with the timing in the circuit boards. Basically telling them when to turn on and off. I would only recomend this solution if you are technically inclined. Remove the back from your tv on the left upper quadrant you should see a small gray dial with marks that a Philips screw driver would fit it. There are three or four of these on the boards scatter across the tv. Each on corresponds to the colors firing in sequence. Take your Philips and turn it to either extream. You should see a your screen go crazy with whatever color corresponds to the dial. Then ever so slowly turn the dial undtil you don't see any more flickering. Do that with each dial and you should be able to get rid of most of the flickering. on the right side of the there is a panel underneath the support bar with orange adjuster. I don't know what they do but they also help reduce the flickering. A word of caution. If you can use something non metallic to adjust these dials. There is a small metal lip to keep the dial from turning too far. If your screw driver touches it. It will fry the dial and your screen will blink red/yellow or blue. and you will have to buy a new board. Luckily they are only about 30 bucks, but I learned the hard way.

I have a red and green dot in the middle of my screen that will not go away and doesn't change no matter what ever channel you watch


if you remove the rear cover you will find 3 large lens----with the set on cover the red and then the green one at a time, if the dots vanish you have a "burnt" picture tube caused by some problem in the set---it is permanent damage and not only would the picture tubes have to be replaced but whatever arced and burnt them would have to be located and repaired.


If the dots go away it is most likely not worth fixing.

Hi,
White dots are due to bad DMD chip and qualified tv tech can replace required DMD chip in this tv to fix the picture issue.
Please contact nearest Samsung service center or local tv repair shop for repair estimate.

Hi. I have a Samsung DLP that I purchased about 7 years ago. Over the last week when watching HDTV channels ( live or PVR) some faces of people are showing a green line on the left side and then a red line...


Hi,Yes your problem sounds like the DMD board.This is how it works: http://electronics.howstuffworks.com/dlp1.htm Basically the light of the lamp goes through a tunnel that carries a color wheel(rotating disc with a gamma of colors that creates the colors on your tv)then the light of the lamp goes through the DMD board which is a chip composed of around 2 million pixels that creates the images and colors.When it starts to fail it will create black bars,pixelation,color distortion or white dots on screens. Here's a video that will help you find where the DMd chip is located : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jr_9A5Xd2Q Have a blessed one!

LE40R74BD VOLUME OK BUT BLANK SCREEN


sounds like the backlight is out, can you see a picture when shining a flashlight on the screen. if yes you have either a bad inverter power supply or bad screen (panel).
both are serious , also could be just a few bad capacitors on the power supply, if you want you can do a visual of the power board caps will appear swolled on top and are easy to solder in cost about $1 EACH
