I've had this tv for 8 years, bought it brand new....when i turn tv on it seems as though the picture is bunched in a smaller picture than the actual size it should be(55inch) picture picture is small and you can barely see it... picture goes in and out until it seems as though it heats up 15 -40 mins. then it will have full picture, however it may still go in and out a few more times volume may also go in and out as the picture is trying to adjust itself??? HELP this is driving me crazy!!! Is it worth fixing or should I just buy a new one?????

Where I work has just bought a new 86" 4K set, plus about 8 other smaller ones. Those remotes are pretty neat. The Home button will get you to settings.You drive the direction, up, down, left and right with the outer ring in the centre and the Enter button in the centre. Scroll through Set Up.
I would say you have an Internet connection problem though.
They are a cracking set! One funny thing is that the volume and channel buttons move up and down on a pivot. Press to Mute.
Your HD tv might be the problem though it should be capable of displaying non-HD content, depending how the connection is made.
It is possible an adjustment might have to be made in the menu of the tv to select a compatible format if it is capable of processing analogue signals.
I suggest you do a search for "understanding video signals".
The answer would be to connect it to an older analogue only tv set for the purpose of testing...
The S700 uses SD cards. Your new 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it will fit into the slot, it will not work in the S700 (as you've discovered). You'll have to limit yourself to SD cards, 2GB and smaller.
The power board is gone. I have one and it did the same thing. I found a site with the board for about $149.00 but it was not worth it. The brand new board only lasted 30 days and it burnt out also. It seems that power supply board which is a different board and smaller board probably is bad as well and it burned up the new main power board I put in. This TV is not worth fixing. Sorry, it really sucks. Samsung supplies this board to SVA but the board is actually built by Gateway. Deal with this for the past 2 years and no one will take responsibility for it. Dead end with every effort. There were a group of us that was actually trying to file a class action class suit against SVA who is really not willing to help anyone but even that is not worth it. They could replace the board but the new one will burn out shortly after once it has already burnt the first board. Just a badly built TV. I am in the process of purchasing a new tv and I will never buy a Samsung product again becuase of this even though gateway built it for them. Sony or Sharp is my next option.
If the shrinkage is just the top & bottom then it is relatively easy/low cost fix. Most probably, a capacitor in the vertical section is nearing end of its life. This would be the biggest of the bunch and would be something like 47uF/50V.
If however, the shrinkage is on all four sides, then it is the master power supply that is at fault. Chances are the main B+ is getting low which cold be caused by the big filter capacitor or an erratic regulator. This is not a simple fix and would require the services of a qualified professional.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Have you checked for dust on the Tubes and mirror? This may cause a bad picture quality. Also power supply related problems like capacitors can cause a dark picture. Try replacing some of them in the power supply area and line stage.Also adjustments in the service mode,but for this you will need the service manual. Good Luck,JUS004
I think the set is worth repairing,it appear it has a loose conection and a few other, as well as overheated areas witch will need to be resoldered to prevent any other problems,if you are familiar with tv service you could check the horizontal drive and output circuits,if you are not too familiar with tv's be safe and call for assiatnce from a servicer.To correcthis problem it should not be too expensive.
