Question about Samsung PCN5425R 54" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

Samsung PCL5415RBX TV is four years old. I want to see if I can fix the problem before having to call a repair man that is going to charge me $400+ that maybe I can fix myself. We were out of town for a week, when we got home, kids turned on TV to see a Blue Line that made an inverted crest across the screen. Anybody out there who can help me or lead me in the right direction?

If you have nothing more to offer than this poor excuse for tech support, then you could have not wasted our time by not posting such a stupid comment.

One of your convergence IC's has burned out and needs to be replaced. The Samsung projection sets typically use two STK392-040 IC's, the large black IC's mounted on a large heat sink. If you have never replaced a convergence IC or realigned convergence circuits, allow a qualified tech to handle it for you.

2004. Trunk handle broke. Where can I buy replacement lock assembly to replace?


See if you can get one from a wrecker. They should have one for a reasonable price and then maybe you can do it or get some one to help you. If you know a body repair man he could possibly fix you up with a used one. I would stay away from a dealer for older car repairs as they tend to be expensive.

Convergence Bad


Changing the convergence IC's could cost $300-$400 total.CRT based TV rear projectors are more or less obsolete now,with everything going to DLP and LCD.These days 5 years is the expected life on these TV's (most extended warranty contracts only cover up to 5 years)

I have a jcd2389des and it just stopped working - I'm getting power to the unit but the compressor and fan are not running. There's no heat or sound from the unit. I had some issue with the defrost cycle...


The problem is created by a small computer located in a top of refrigerator has been broken by any reason. The part is sold at $60-70 but a repair technician usually charge it around $180-200 to rip you off. It happens every 4-5 years. Jenn Air designed its location in a deep and hidden part of top fridge and even skilled consumers can't reach there. Normal repair man charges to fix the problem including labor (1-2 hours, honestly) sums up to $300-400.

The repair cost of $400 is almost big enough to go for a new fridge for most of rich people, unlike me.

Panasonic TH-42PD50U RED ON LIGHT BLINKS BUT WON'T STAY ON


Normally, when this happens, the TV goes into " Protection Mode " because of a failing circuit board. Most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. It's possible that it maybe a bad capacitor or transformer on the power supply board. The most common thing to go out on flat panel TVs is the circuit board that supply power to the screen. Commonly called a Backlight Inverter Board. But, I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet. I can only make guesses with the symptoms.

You have a few choices:

1. You can try leaving the TV unplugged for 30 minutes so the TV can reset itself.


2
. If you have some electronic experience, if you can find and purchase a Service Manual over the internet; It will help you diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you red light blinking codes, circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists. Usually, cost under $20. And most cases the new part cost less than $15.


3. Pay a TV shop to do the repairs. It maybe costly, but get an estimate of how much they will charge. That way you can decide if it worth repairing or replacing the whole TV.


I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

I have a LG model 42LB9RTB and today the screen is almos green


Given that your TV isn't even a year old yet, I would use the manufacture warranty.
It maybe something expensive as a mother board to fix. Maybe $400.

Blue haze on hitachi 51" tv


I finally emailed Hitachi about the blue haze and since my televison is only 16 months old they agreed to pay for the part (they didn't say what part) and I will have to pay the service charge. The repairman is coming out on 2 Apr 08. I will post results after that.

Is your TV the Toshiba 52hm95? I had a similar problem but my TV went out completely. I had a service tech out this morning..it was my light engine and will be $900.00 to 1000.00 to fix. I hope that's not your problem too...Toshiba said they have had no other reports of such a problem with this particular tv.

Not really. Repairs are right about $150 - $250. Resistor Kit, Caps., maybe other parts, and labor charges.
