Question about Samsung LN26A330J LCD TV

1 Answer

TV has sound but no picture for about 20 minutes then the picture pops on and is good. The capacitors are all good looking. I was told it was the control board or the power supply? Is the board that has all the caps on it?

The capacitors all looking good on which board? You need to find out when you do not have picture, are you still geting the backlights on, this is important to narrow down the problem. Please read my guides to understand what it takes for the LCD flat panel TV to work, by the way, bad cap can look normal but can have high ESR or low capacitance than the spec.
First, look at the screen in darkened room to see if you can see any slight glow from the screen, if it does, then the problem can be the T-CON (not getting the 12vdc) or the main logic board not feeding the signals to the T-CON board.
if not, next place to check will be the power supply module, make sure it has 24vdc which is required by the backlight inverter to work, the reason for not having 24vdc can be from bad DC filter caps (leaking/bulging top, high ESR) or short circuits in the inverter board which will cause the 24vdc supply to go into shutdown mode, so you may have to disconnect the power cable that feed the inverter board to see if the 24vdc will work without the inverter board hookup, you will need to apply about 3~4 amp of load to the 24vdc to make sure it can handle that. There are fuses on the backlight inverter boards also. So there is some troubleshooting you will have to do to find out the causes of the problem you are having.

If you are going to DIY and have proper tools, electronics knowledge, and know safety precaution then please read on:

Tv popped and went off, there are 2 circuit boards how can I tell which is bad, power board or audio video board,, no lights on tv work at all, complete zip


If you Heard a popping sound. Most likely it was a capacitor that went bad. Yahoo search capacitor to see a picture.
Usually capacitors swell when they go bad. if you Don't know How to spot it. Concentrate on the circuit board you plug connects to and check to spot the capacitor. You might not actually have a standard capacitor. So look for a film capacitor as well.

Good luck

TV picture goes out after 10 minutes of viewing with popping sound


It can be a couple things. Something bad on the power board. Or the vertical output circuit. How long ago did you purchase the television. Your best course of action is to have it serviced.
If you need any information or other assistance let me know.
Thanks,
Lee

Falt screen tv has a white screen when I turn it on,audio ok,picture comes on after about 20 minutes,any ideas?


Good day!!!




That problem is usually cause of faulty capacitors on the power supply board..


Just follow this instruction to fix your TV..


1. Open the back cover of your TV.
2. Look at the power supply board..Its normally connected to the power cord..
3. After that,,try to look at the actual image of capacitors if it is bulged on the top so that you can easily determine the bad capacitors..
4. After that,,try to replaced the bad capacitors using soldering iron and soldering lead..replaced the capacitors only with the same type ratings and value..
5. Some of the capacitors not bulged so its better if have a capacitance meter

My lg 37 inch lcd works fine for five minutes then a big popping sound happens , i loose picture and sound but power remains, after this it will either keep popping or picture and sound will return for...


Plasma and LCD TV sets are prone to having capacitors in the power supply section fail. This is the most likely cause for the probem you describe. When capacitors fail your will commonly see one or more of the following symptoms.
  • No video, Power light is on or blinking.
  • TV is making a clicking noise.
  • TV takes a while to come on
  • Screen is very dim or flickers.

Again, You can get a power supply repair kit with the parts, detailed instructions, and support from sites such as www.TvRepairKits.com . Or just click here to see more details on their kit.

Here are pictures of capacitors...Notice that the ones below look bloated. They have failed and will need to be repalced.

What would cause the tv to come on and work perfectly for ten minutes then lose picture & sound. It you wait 20 minutes you can then turn it back on for picture & sound.


It can be heat relate problem causes by bad soldering works, Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.

There are two places to look for the problems, the backlight inverter board and the power supply. Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.

Toshiba 50H81 Sound but no picture


if you heard a pop that would be a capacitor unable to take the voltage, hopefully no other damage, you will need to identify the capacitors that have gone and replace the parts with the same number ie 40v 300uf 105c remember don't touch the 400v or 200v capacitors as they will still have power in them, discharge them by placing a metal object over the + and the - on the capacitor and then the board will be safe.it could also be the bulb has gone. you would need to check this as if the bulb has gone the tv will shut down. and flash but usually there is an led that flashes to tell you bulb failed.
