Question about Samsung HCL4715W 47" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Samsung HCL4715W will not power on

The TV is about 5 years old. Worked fine up until yesterday. The set does not power on. The sleep light is red. It does not flash when plugged in. It just comes up solid red. The power button has no effect, no sounds, clicks, etc. I have the back and front off. I've check a couple of fuses which are fine. any suggestions?

    Wait, there's more...

    Yesterday I noticed some drops fo fluid on the circuit board and my immediate thought was my son and his friends. I wiped them away and didn't notice any more when I went down today. I must have missed something. When I tried powering it on there was a spark, pop, and smoke.

    Further google research looking for fluid and projection tv's educated me to the fact that some tubes have coolant fluid in them.

    Well now I suppose I have at least 3 problems. A) the coolant tubes B) the first shorted out component when the tv stopped working. C) what I just did this morning. I'm guessing this won't be worth repairing at this point. Any other opinions?

At five years old, I doubt it will be worth replacing the power supply , a picture tube or two and possible the signal board. Cut your loses and get a new set.

I have an RCA STB7766G1 CONVERTER FOR my 30 year old TV SET

I would suspect the power supply on the converter is failing. You should see the power light on the converter go out if this is the case. If the light is going from green to red, it may be going to power save mode. (Menu->Option->Power Save Mode -> Off)

You may be able to find a replacement 9 Volt power supply for low cost.

Here is a link to the manual:

Hi I have a brand new 320 GB PS3, barely a month old. Worked up until today when all I'm getting is "no signal". I've tried using other HDMI leads (component also) and TV's (mine is a Samsung...

Try these steps first -

Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it, then beep again 5 seconds later. Release the power button when you hear this second beep

Wait for the PS3 to reset its display.

This will now choose the best setting for your TV and everything should be ok.

If you still get problems, go back to where you purchased it from or contact Sony, as it is under a year old it is still within warranty laws etc

Hope this helps

TV has been in storage for a year. Turned it on yesterday and it worked perfectly. Today, when I turn it on with the power button, a red light marked "timer" blinks a couple of times and the TV powers off...

You probably need a new projector bulb. Google up your model and buy the best warranteed one you can find. Buy a "caged assembly" and not just a bare bulb.

Then unplug your tv and get a screwdriver. Follow your model's instructions and just snug down the electrical screws. Do not overtighten them.

Then consult your manual on how to reset the lamp timer so it knows you put a new bulb in and fires up from the first try.

Treat yourself because you've just saved yourself a trip from a repairman!!
