Question about Televison & Video

Open Question

I have a Samsung LE40F71B LCD tv about 18 months old. It has started showing red pixels around the edges of blacks, e.g. around a lapel on a black coat or on black hair, etc. Sometimes the sound crackles too, then is ok. The screen may flash very briefly at that point, then is ok again.

    We've got exactly the same problem with our Samsung, purchased in November 2006. Spoke to Samsung about it, they don't want to know as its out of warranty, even though they had to replace the main board shortly after we got it. They suggested someone to fix it, but they want £120+VAT to even come and look at the thing!

On the KDFE55A20 this sounds like a bad Q-Box. I would get an estimate from a Sony authorized servicer as this part may be quite expensive. On the 55A10 model this may be the B-Block and is also quite expensive. Getting an on-sit estimate would be the first step I suggest. Again go with an authorized Sony servicer. Call Sony or go to Sony.com for customer service. Good Luck

SOURCE: LCD TV SCREEN PROBLEM RED HORIZONTAL LINES OF DOTS ALL OVER SCREEN PLEASE HELP

I unplugged the TV and now the picture is back.I read that the LCD's are vunerable to static build up so unless my daughter is using her TV I unplug it.

I was thinking about getting a large LCD for the family room but I'm not going to until they improve on this technology.

Good luck to everyone!.

Cheers.

This is no solution but a point in a probable direction.

A tech guy told me ALL the LCDs they have seen in their repair shop have "swollen" capacitors, this is due to voltage instability. Lowering the internal voltage regulator and replacing the swollen capacitors (which eliminate noise) apparently restores the LCD to new working quality. Without actually "seeing" my problem the tech said that should repair it. I have not tried this yet but eventually will begin that way.

We have the same DLP set and had the same problem. The Color Wheel, P/N BP96-00250A, a $200 part needs replacement to eliminate your problem.

Hi,Yes your problem sounds like the DMD board.This is how it works: http://electronics.howstuffworks.com/dlp1.htm Basically the light of the lamp goes through a tunnel that carries a color wheel(rotating disc with a gamma of colors that creates the colors on your tv)then the light of the lamp goes through the DMD board which is a chip composed of around 2 million pixels that creates the images and colors.When it starts to fail it will create black bars,pixelation,color distortion or white dots on screens. Here's a video that will help you find where the DMd chip is located : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jr_9A5Xd2Q Have a blessed one!

Black pixels in shading and back ground turning red


This is not a "rear projection" plasma TV for whiuch you offered solutions, It is the LCD Flat panel the Liquid Crystal Display a 40" Samsung. I do not think this problem is a dead pixel as that woulde be "black" Reading on the web I found only one post that appeared to be the same or similar and the person said somehing about "switching the red wire" Maybe it is a "stuck" pixel -- sticks on red once in a while. Like previously after the first time it occured it has not come back in three days now. Samsungs repair comes today i will cross my fingers.

White pixels cover half of the bottom part of the screen


You probably have faulty lcd panels inside the tv. replacing them can cost alot of money. I assume you have tried different inputs? If the dots are in excactly the same place then the lcd panels or lcd controller are faulty.

Hi.

Your problem sounds like the lead that connects from main pcb to the lvds pcb.

These have gold coloured connections that become tarnished & dont make good contact.
You can try to sort this out your self but please be very carefull the fine wires on the plugs can be easily damaged.

If you do decide to have A go you will need tin of air duster & elecrical spray switch cleaner, You are only to clean plug & socket connections on lvds lead & pcb.

Samsung 1080p turns itself off


Probably a bad Inverter board. I have a Dell 32" LCD TV but it has a Samsung Panel inside, found a burnt transformer on the inverter board, Still trying to find a replacement.


My TV comes on for a second then goes black, power still shows on but no picture. 1.5 years old

If you are not a tech person, take it in for service.
