Question about Samsung Televison & Video

Open Question

Samsung UE32C5800 LED TV purchased 6 months ago. Has suddenly developed a flashing picture. Sound is not affected, or anything else, but picture 'strobes' quite severely. Can hear a flicking type noise coming from the actual TV itself as well. Have unplugged, checked cabling, settings etc....Is it faulty?!

You should call for warranty service. If the set is very new try to get it exchanged.

There are some very heavy duty power supplies and many high power matrix drivers used in Plasma sets.

The description sounds like the noises are very loud. It is normal with any of these TV sets, if you put your ear right up to the back of the set at the vent holes you will hear some noises. These would be some acoustic harmonics from the power supplies and related circuits.

I am wondering if it is possible that there is something that is becoming less stable. If the set is working very well without any failure, so-far this is a very good sign. Before it gets to be a problem, I would have this checked.

On many models of these sets, they use fans for cooling specific areas. A bad fan can cause noise.

SOURCE: ESA Plasma PDP4294LV No video,sound

 checked voltages meter set to AC referenced to chassis VA, VE, etc no voltages. 
Do not try to measure voltages on the primary side of the power supply with a meter; you may damage the meter and cause new damage to the supply. There are switching frequencies somewhere between 50,000 - 100,000 Hz and possible voltage peaks of several hundred volts. 

Checking AC is only useful before a diode bridge that converts incoming AC into raw DC that is then chopped at higher frequency into an approximate HF AC, coupled to the secondary, then tapped and connected to more diodes to produce DC, finally regulated and sent on its way.
Your plasma set uses some higher voltages that could have caused the cracking sound they heard but the DVD player didn't cause the problem directly; maybe just caused the HV for the display to surge for a moment.
You may have additional fuses on the secondary side of the supply. If test points are accessible there, check for DC voltages and be suspicious of any fuse or test point that measures nothing at all.
I can't tell you which voltages to expect since that varies from one design to another but you should find several lower voltages such as 5 VDC for logic circuits and perhaps a 12 V point. The plasma's HV could be produced from a separate board fed from the AC line or get its supply voltage from the main supply. There aren't many standards to rely on here.      

The most likely semiconductor failure would be on the secondary side and diodes come in many different packages, many cylindrical, some in the TO-220 package with a metal flange and mounted on upright aluminum heatsinks. These will have only two leads and there will be some in the same package with three legs. The latter can also be checked statically but unless you know what kind of transistor or regulator (look about the same) you are measuring, you will not be able to ferret out a defective one with any luck. 
While you have the set open, check for any dust bunnies that can act as sponges, collect moisture and create a discharge path for higher voltages.

sounds like your powerboard, you can try a cheap fix by putting a small fan behind the tv on low and see if that helps. Also I would not settle for this and call in the warranty and get it fixed while you can.

SOURCE: Samsung LCD tv - Turns on and off by itself.

Not sure if this is the same problem, but I just moved and set up my Samsung 40" LCD and it has been going off and on by itself with the worst yesterday every 2-3 minutes. After speaking with a friend of mine who is not in the Tv business but just has good common sense, I determined it was likely a bad power strip. The bottom line is I replaced the crappy power strip (which was fully loaded with all 6 outlets in use) with the higher quality one I had in the other room. The problem is gone. I suspect the power strip was failing or real bad quality........try plugging the tv directly into the wall outlet first. hope this helped.

Hello

The light flashing is some sort of an error code, count the number of times it flashes then call the manufacturer's tech support and tell them the standby flashes in increments of 5 or whatever yours is doing to find out what the code possibly means.

Sharp aquos hdtv has sound but shows a white screen


yes and no. That particular tv you have is done for, but if you just purchased it 6 months ago, you are still within you 1 year warranty with sharp. they will ask you to take it to a authorized service center and you need to follow through with the process. about a week or 2 will pass and the service center will deem the unit unrepairable and sharp will replace it if they cant solve the problem. give em call..good luck 2u
