Question about Flat Panel Televisions

1 Answer

Digistar TV I unpluged my 40" Digistar TV due to the severe thunder storm, but it doesn't seem to be working when I plugged it back in the next morning. There is a LCD light in front of the TV that is constantly flashing which never did before. I tried all the buttons on the TV and as well on the remote, but I got no response. I will appreciate it if you could help me out here. THANKS

Sorry, I am not famillar with your model, however most flat panel problems with start up can be traced to the power supply as the capacitors can fail due to the high operating temperatures. An electrical surge can also come in through the Cable and or antenna connection as well.

TV was not in use but storm came through this morning and we were without power for 2 hours. Now when I turn the TV on it is not receiving a signal through any of the 4 HDMI ports. Cables work ok,...

Processor could be locked up, unplug the set from the wall for 40 Min. and that reset it back to normal. If that don't work, than it will need repair.

The problem of your tv is the power supply the thunder storm cause that. You should unplug your tv when not in use, try to check the fuse if busted, their are two classification of a busted fuse, if the fuse is only open try to replace it but if the fuse is all burned out dont just replace it, it has a shorted parts like the regulator and the bridge type rectifier

My kdf50e3000 doesnt want to turn on all the time !! i have to unplug the tv and not all the time works !! it tries to turn on but it doesent ! next morning when i plug it on it goes on !!

Your TV's SMPS ( Switch Mode Power Supply ) needs fixing.The kick pulse circuit is not working. That is the reason when you unplug the TV and plug it back sometimes the plug sparks it starts working. Some of the high value resistors would have gone even higher due to age.
Will need professional help for that.

No power after shut off

Amazingly, I simply let the set plugged in overnight and this morning when I pushed the power button just to aggravate myself ... darned thing came on like nothing ever was wrong.

Apparently the longer you leave the set unplugged, the longer it takes to reset itself.

My samsung lcd hdtv's tv picture seems to be greenand pink tones

Mainboard damaged and need to be replaced, if under warranty, call in for service, if not try ebay to get a general picture of price range.

You will need your product code to get the board and it is located in the back of the Tv, next to serial number.
