Question about Samsung PPM42S3QX 42 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

1 Answer

I have a samsung 42 inch lcd tv. it is about 4 years old. the problem started with it not turning on right away. it would make its beeping sound that it was coming on over and over. but nothing. then when it did come on there were vertical fine green lines on the screen. now, if we are lucky enough for it to turn on at all, it is nothing but multi colored lines on the screen. is this fixable, and worth fixing??

Yes,its a relatively easy repair.it will most likely require around six capacitors replacing on the power supply.they will have domed on the tops and readily available from farnell,grandata etc.they will be oozing brown fluid.if you are handy with a soldering iron,a fiver should fix it.do not continue to use the set,as this fault will corrupt the eeprom.thats one not for the un-experienced!

4 year old vizio 42 inch tv lcd. While watching tv, the screen started dimming. There is a 4 inch shadow all along left side of the screen and the 1 inch line shadow going down the middle of the screen.


Maybe a power supply or related issue but at 4 years of age the set has reached its life span----parts will be hard or impossible to find.

If you got four years I would retire it and recycle it and then replace it.

as far as it turning off on its own I would get a fan on it and see if that make a difference make sure that the fan is able to flow around the tv especially through the back of it, if this stops it from turning off then it is an overheating problem
