Question about Samsung LE40R74BDX 40 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

TV won't turn on

I have a Samsung LCD tv. We have been having problems with it for a few weeks now...when we turned the tv on we would have to wait at least 5 minutes for it to come on. The red light would blink and it would click. Today it just blinks and clicks and doesn't turn on at all. We also had a problem with the colour recently...a red colour over a lot of the picture. Sometimes a scene on tv would look like a bloodbath because of this! We've had the tv less than 18 months....is it likely to be a huge repair bill, or worse still a new tv?

It sounds that your TVs' timer function is set to 'ON' for 15 minutes time. Check it, and make it 'Off'. Refer its user manual for details.

Samsung le40f71bx picture flickers on and off with hd source


I've had similar for a long time, now the picture only lasts a few minutes or seconds. Have to turn the TV off, wait 5 minutes, turn it back on. That's with Sky HD. Used to be the same with SCART but I don't use that any more, and I get it with the Wii on Component. However HD DVD and Blu Ray players are no problem!

Way out of warranty but really just need some repair expert to tell me what needs fixing. Taking the cover off there are very few components and look easy to replace, and seen some on ebay. A fix from Samsung would be vastly in excess of the value of the TV.

Many times the main circuit board becomes defective, especially after a power surge. If you had power fluctuations lately, the board could have become compromised. A shorted board needs replacement. Sometimes the cost of repair becomes greater than purchasing a new system.
