Question about Samsung Televison & Video

1 Answer

We have a Samsung HDtv 1080i. While playing a video game yesterday just out of the blue the screen went blank and then all we could hear is a very light buzzing sound. The red light on the front of the panel keeps flashing. We unplugged everything including the wall socket and after replugging it still buzzing and no picture. Can anyone tell me what the problem is. This TV is less than 3 years old.

    Thank you for such quick response. The red light is flashing 6 times. I don't really know anything about TV repairs can you explain what a flyback transformer is?

The flashing light is giving you an error code as there has been some sort of failure in the TV. The buzzing sound could be the flyback transformer. Count the number of flashes. I'm sure the code will be for the flyback.

    The flyback transformer setups up the voltage in the tv. It's a high voltage component. I would recommend calling a repairman and getting a quote to fix it. Many times the quote will be more than what the tv is worth to you however. The parts aren't really expensive, it's the labor.

My screen stays blank when I turn on. Lights blue and green come on but screen stays blue


If your display settings aren't set to automatic this can occur. Example: if you have set resolution to 1080i and are trying to play it on a display that has 1080p you will get a blank screen or no signal message. you will have to connect your PS3 to the last display you had an image on and change the "display setting" to "automatic" for your PS3 to work on all displays. when you choose a specific resolution to the "display settings" it will only work on that specific resolution. hope this helps.

Samsung lcd 720 ln32b360 doesn't fill screen in 16:9 mode. Went through tv setup, connected it to hd box (verizon Fios) plays all HD channels but does not fill screen as it should. TV is connected to set...


If by regular cables you are talking about the standard red/yellow/white composite cables, then, yes, it will affect HD as composite cannot send an HD signal. Only HDMI and component (red/blue/green video only) cables.

Change to HDMI and let us know if it works for you.

HDMI-can't get tv to stay 1080i


This is natural, the PS3 does not stretch the signal like the Xbox does so games play at there native resolution (720p) there is nothing wrong with your TV or your PS3 and you would not see any difference in the games graphics if it was in 1080i. I'm playing my PS3 on a 46" 1080p TV and my PS3 games look great in 720p.

Blank screen when ps3 is turned on.


If you can still hear sound make sure your video output is compatiable with the setting on your tv example dont try to put 1080i if your tv can only run 720i

When playing a game the screen goes blank after a while


Dude, all you have to do is restart your console and it should start up fine. If it doesn't, keep restarting it until it does. The new-age HD cables have to load a lot of **** to and from your TV to display properly, and if it has the smallest delay, it doesn't display ****.

Ps 3 no data


Try holding the power on button down until you hear a series of beeps, each one representing your ps3 switching video modes. try this until you get a picture on your screen, then you can use the options to set it to your tv's resolution. I've seen this same problem often from people holding the button when they turn it on :3.

Hope this helps.

Your HDTV only supports 1080i ? If thats the case make sure that under settings youve got only 1080i selected appart from 480p which is standard.

If thats not the case then tell me: Does sound play or just a blank screen and no sound??? (game crashes)

Games run on hdmi, but not Blu-ray movies


You most likely have the updated drivers. You may have to go and change a setting. I found an answer on the PS3 website that may be of some use to you. I hope this helps you: http://boardsus.playstation.com/playstation/board/message?board.id=ps3&message.id=1662191 From the site: "go to bd/dvd setting and set the "108024hz" option off"
