Question about Televison & Video
My Samsung le32b450c4w 32" LCD television has recently developed some intermittent display issues. Initially we noticed a green bias to the picture, then we lost the display entirely, but the sound and back-light is still fine. Now we have a picture, but sometimes we see the color flicker from normal(ish) back to a green hue, we've also got three light-colored patches at points around the edge of the screen. So I've already done some digging, there are three boards in the TV, what looks like a power supply / backlight controller board, a main-board, and a smaller "T-Con Board", I've tried unplugging and reconnecting the ribbon cable between the main-board and TCon board, no luck. Any idea whether this is (a) the TCon board (cheap to replace, yay!), (b) the main board, or (c) something else? Many thanks all, Russ
I have LNS4692D. Returned from vacation, turned tv on - no picture. Tried turning tv off for 4 hours- nothing. Symptoms are: tv is on - no picture , just sound; menu doesn't show, volume bar doesn't show;E.Saving is working - the backlight is changing from lighter to darker.
Found this website and ordered T-con, otherwise known as the LCD panel driver board, p/n# Bn8101286a ( thanks premtech) from partstore.com for $124. Part number BN81-01286A A/S T-CON Board.
1.Remove plastic cover. There is an arrow for each screw that needs to be removed. Make sure to unscrew pins next to VGA port. I've spent some time trying to figure out what else is holding the plastic panel until I found this pins.
2. Remove big metal shield in the middle of tv that is covering main components. This shield is being held by small black screws all around it.
At this point you will see cover of T-CON. Here is the picture
http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/attachment.php?attachmentid=118863&d=1220531321 (thanks ldac9). Do not attempt to remove that cover yet. Proceed with a next step
3.Remove metal panel that holds main components. Locate big chrome screws that have arrows pointing to them and unscrew them. Remove 2 more screws on the bottom of the panel that holds it together with a box for cables. At this point the main panel will be lose
4. Carefully start lifting the panel. You will see that there are connectors going from components on the panel to components on the lower panel and T-CON. Carefully unplug these components and raise the main panel.
5. Remove 4 screws that holds T-CON cover. Pull the cover so that T-CON is completely exposed. The cover is connected by thin alluminum , don't hesitate to pull it , but don't rip it out.
6. Once T-CON is exposed you will see 2 red ribbons. I've spent some time to figure out how unplug those from old T-CON board. Here is the suggestion. Don't try to pull it out. All you need to do is to lift small plastic lever that is part of a connector. Then ribbon can be slided out. If not sure what to do, see how this is done on the new T-CON. It has a principle of buckle on airplain safety belts.
7. Remove old T-CON and install new you.
8. Follow reverse order.
I've never fixed TV before , but this was totally successful project.

You need to do some more diagnosing of the problem. If you get sound and change channels take a bright flashlight and place it again the screen. Look for an image around the edge of the flashlight.
If you see an image that means the LCD controller board (TCON) is probably good.
The problem is probably one of three causes;
1) Inverter board is bad
2) CCFT (cold cathode fluorescent light) are bad.
3) Power to the inverter board is bad. You can also check the connectors.

To solve this type of problem, you need a piece of white chalk. Draw a line around the area where the set is at. Call a priest - and lay the poor thing to rest!!!! This isn't the first time Samsung has "dropped" junk onto its' customers. Their dvd players also had problems with their DSP I.C.s that would over heat and cause the video playbacks to "break up". Don't waste any more time or money on the product!!!!!
