Question about Samsung HL-S6187W 61 in. HDTV

1 Answer

Samsung hl-s6186 screen flickers and sometimes goes green

On occassion my screen flickers, sometimes it gets better and other times it causes the whole picture to turn kind of green and the tv starts humming very loudly. The only way to stop the humming and the green is to unplug and then plug the tv back in. Is there a way to stop this, or is my tv slowly going bad? What kind of problem does this sound like? It's covered under warranty with Best Buy, but I don't want to take it in unless is screwed.

The humming will usally come from the color wheel(one of the only moving parts), which is part of the light engine. If the tv is starting to get a green picture that is a sign that the light engine is on it's way out.

Sony 52xbr4 screen flickering


Fault with the main power supply regulator board. Ubnormal DC voltage output from it. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.

It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and precious time.

Sounds dodgy. If yore using a multi socket unit - just unplug - remove video recorder, phone, skype, internet etc. wait 1 minute If its still the same - there's a problem with the tv - if its fixed - add one at a time to identify the cause - then that's the cause not the tv.

There are several possibilities here.

To be able to help better we'd need to know the model number.

The most likely suspects are the T-CON board, one of the two backlight inverters and the display itself.

Of those only the last one is usually not curable.

Here's an example of a popular set of inverters that , when one goes bad you can get one half of the screen very dark:

http://www.coppelltvrepair.com/p/428/sanyo-dp42848-p42848-00-backlight-inverters-replacement-for-dark-screen-no-image-problem

On the other hand, if you have vertical shadows and some flickering that's probably NOT going to be a backlight inverter.

Flickering would be caused by either the T-CON or the panel.

Since a bad panel is mostly NOT curable you may want to check the price of a replacement T-CON and decide if it is worth taking a shot with one before you displace the TV.

Again, the thing to start with is the model.

Hope this helps.

The flickering problem you have is caused by the monitor's t-con board, The Altera chip on the T-con board is having a bad connection because of dead soldering points or cracked soldering joints, the solution for this problem is to have the T-con board Altera chip reballed, its a very advanced repair , only one place will fix it for you and I will add a link for it, you won't easily find a replacement T-con board for this monitor and Samsung is no longer supporting your monitor so that place is your only hope. 7f514c27-5c9c-4e70-b50a-29505054d67b.jpg b5ec5af6-395e-4533-b5ea-9ca10c5ae592.jpg SAMSUNG MONITOR 305T REBALLING REPAIR 728a6cd3-2218-4f75-8f0c-7348e47d15f4.jpg
