Hi, I'm a first time visitor to this site and I'm seeking assistance with a problem. I have a new Samsung 40 inch Bordeaux LCD TV which has a shimmer, i.e. a wave appears to be wafting across the screen. One person has advised me that this could be the result of interference from other pieces of equipment around the TV. The set up includes a BOSE Lifestyle 38 Series III home entertainment unit, a Samsung DVD player and the satellite TV set top box. Also running off the same 6-way power box are the BOSE amplifier and the BOSE base module.
Any thoughts, even general observations, are gratefully accepted.

Re: Samsung LCD TV shimmer problem
Are you sure this is not an LCD screen door effect, It is a normal thing for this to happen to an LCD TV set. They are not made to be watch too close or you will magnafy this normal effect with the screen. If you have a problem with a new set, dont waist any time and get it service right away as it will cost you a small fortune in the future to have it serviced. Good Luck

have you looked in the owner's manual ? Support LED TV UN40H5203AF Samsung TVs
don't know if this the right one for your set, I think the 40" series all have the same manual. I couldn't download it myself. Also on that webpage you can 'chat' to a Samsung rep. who should be able to give you better directions to the correct instructions
Many Samsung LCD panels have a main 'power supply' circuit board, which relies on Capacitors.
If you're technically inclined, take the back off and inspect the cluster of capacitors near the power supply. If any of the capacitors look out of shape, too fat, or burnt at the solder joints, then you've found the fault.
From memory, the most common capacitor to fail, is the large 1000 uF one.
