Question about Samsung CXM2785TP 27 in. TV/VCR/DVD Combo

1 Answer

Television has power btu no response to anything.

I recently aquired this television from a friend. I am currently in Iraq over in the war so my parts are a little limited. The Television will turn on , but only right when it is plugged in. A white screen shows up , but is shakey a little. I replaced the batteries in the remote first nothing happened. Then i removed the power switch panel and pushed the little blue button manually to see if it would turn off but it won't. The dvd won't eject so i am guessing the vcr doesnt work either. I checked the fuse and it is good. When I was given this tv i was told it wouldnt work but it would come on. At first it was just a black screen then i messed with the black box with the red cord going to the screen. And one of the adjusting knobs said screen so i turned it and that is what brought up the white screen. The red light in the front does not work. I thought something might have just came loose but i dont really know. I do know about electrical equipment ebing is i am a mechanic so i deal with it on hmwvs so i guessed it couldnt be much different and i have also in the past built robots so i know a little bit. Would this be an easy fix cheap or would i be better off selling it to someone for parts? thanks

Unless you have a schematic, its going to be tough to troubleshoot as it sounds like a power supply problem, as these setsd are famous for that. Its most liky a filter capacitor oin a 9, 12, or the 18 volt lines and probaly took out the diode along with the capa as well as the fusable resistor. At this point , where your at, I would say cut your loses and get what you can for it. Good Luck and god bless. I have a brother in law that just came back from over there for the 3rd time. Hes is in the 82nd airborne or the 87th I dont remember. Oh and thanks for protecting us Americans

Unusable signal shows up on screen.Cannot get a cable signal.

Hi friend I would recommend that you plug your TV into a cable signal that is currently working on a different site and see what the TV response is if the TV has the same response the RF modulator on the port panel could be faulty if TV works fine then I suspect your cable signal strength and quality at your home is either non existent or extremely poor and will have to repaired. Good luck hope its not your TV.

I went to turn our tv on and got no response, as though there was no power. I checked the power supply at the TV end of pead and there is a supply. There were no problems prior to this.


The problem with the television is that the power panel is faulty and needs to be replaced. Mostly, there might have been a burnt capacitor on the power panel of the television that is why it is not coming on.

You can replace the power panel by unscrewing the television from the back, trace the power cord to the panel it is supplying the current to, and assess the panel for burnt components.

Replace the panel, and reverse the process to reassemble the television back together and the television will be in good condition once again.

Take care

One minute its good, the next i get nothing.

There is a eletronics parts thats has a cold solder on it. Maybe there is a cable or wire is barely touching on the connector inside the main pcb board. See technician to check your tv. Don't let this problem will continue, bacause some of the electronics will be damage.
