Question about Samsung Televison & Video

Open Question

I have a Samsung LE32R87BD LCD TV which has developed a fault with the picture. When broken, it is displaying a negative effect (black and red, not black and white) with really slow ghosting. The screen is very dark. It is across all inputs. The problem often goes away (without me touching anything), just to come back a few minutes (or hours) later. I have replaced the processor board (long story, but I happened to have a spare), and the same problem persists. Any ideas? Thanks

Usualy a problem with the LCD screen itself, that takes replacing the whole screen to fix. Sorry. Could also be an internal connector that has gone bad. There are tiny transistors on most displays that control whole rows and columns. It sounds like one went bad, causing a dead, or constant on, column. Unless you are REALLY handy, it will probably need to go to a service center for repair, which could be very expensive. Try flexing your screen - wrap a non-fibrous cloth around your hand and squeeze the screen lightly all around the edge. If you find a point where squeezing the screen makes things better or worse, explore that point further. Squeeze just hard enough to make a white area go light grey or yellow. It's safe to squeeze gently with something fluffy when the computer is turned-on. Could be a cable problem - either the cable is not making a good connection at one end, or the cable itself may have been crushed and one of the lines in it broken. Replacing the cable is far cheaper than replacing the display. Good luck

Cf my issue above on LE32R87BD The repair guy came here two times and finally changed the LCD panel which is very expensive. So far, it is working again properly.

He may just be giving up too soon. Again, does this happen on every channel no matter what is plugged into it?

If replacing the cables doesnt help, try giving sony tech support a call and see what they suggest. It wouldnt hurt to get a professional opinion. Plus if your warrenty has expired and they offer to repair it at a cost, im sure it will cost less than a new 40" TV

Not sure what country you're in so go to the website below and choose your country then look for their contact email or phone number. I'm sure they will be helpful, thats what theyre there for.

Have your TV model number (usually on the back of the set) and details of the fault handy. They may also ask where you purchased it from.

I turn on the TV at the wall and the picture comes on for about a second then goes black.


The picture board on your lcd is bad, since it goes black after a second, it means the picture board of your lcd has developed fault.

The best thing for you to do now is to take the lcd to a local repairer within your vicinity or any service center to help with the replacement of the picture board because the fault is not something you can fix yourself, in order not to complicate issues.

Take care.

When i switch my samsung lcd tv model le32r87bd it starts alright but after about 2 seconds the picture goes and the screen turns black i can still hear the sound and the remote seems to still work but no...

Sounds like you need an inverter board which is the power supply for the screen lights. I tried to look up the part but samsung dosen't have a service diagram posted for it yet. Since it is so new you may want to find a samsung authorized service center because if the part is not available yet Samsung will have to solve the problem.
