Question about Samsung LN-S4051D 40 in. LCD Television

Open Question

LA40R71 problem... I have a Samsung 40" LCD TV, model # LA40R71. I've had it for one year. Recently I've noticed that on the left side of the screen, about one-third, the color is duller in some scenes. I have ruled out the sattelite receiver, and have changed the input cables, so it's none of these causing the problem.I simply have the receiver hooked up through video cables; one yellow, and the red and white audio. What's odd is that the problem is very bad when connected to the AV1 source ports, but much better when I connect to the AV2 source ports. Even in the AV2 ports, it's still slightly noticable. It's most noticable in dark scenes, especially connected to AV1.Does anyone have an idea of what is causing this? I'm currently living in a country where the customer support is almost nonexisitant, so I'm hoping to at least determine a probable cause.Thanks, Bryon

    I have the same problem, and it appears regardless of the input.  Cable box, Xbox, etc.  My TV is just over 1 year old, but it's had this problem for at least 6 months.

No picture or dark picture
Check R516 (56Kohms, 0.5w) or R517 (27Kohms, 0.25w) for high
Will not come out of standby, no picture
If at power on voltage on pin 37 of the micro drops low then reverts to 5v suspect memory chip ICA07 (Toshiba 23319016)
No picture No sound
Faulty IC TDA6107q on crt board
No picture on e-e, I.F output ok
This was due to switching chip IC3901 (M51292FP) on the scart panel

I had this problem as well. I tried adjusting the voltage, but it only caused different color problems.

If you using HDMI, try checking your HDMI connection. I found that by I could simply "jiggle" (yes, that the technical term..he he) the HDMI cable around - while the cable was fully/completely attached to the TV - until I found a position where the color issues went away.

Now, the only problem is that I have to go and "adjust" the HDMI cable from time to time as the cable seems to shift over time. I'm thinking there is a problem with the HDMI input board on my tv (42" plasma - HP-S4253). But, since I'm over 3 months out of warranty, I'm not about to shell out big bucks for a new board. I can live with adjusting the cable from time to time.

ok your tv does not come with the very best sound, you have to get a receiver 7.1 or you can use the optical wire , that's if the system you are using has that option.

I have recently bought a Samsung SM2033HD TV and want to wall mount it. I can remove the base but how do I remove the collar that joins the base to the TV.

Your tv is not fully VESA compliant. You cannot remove the collar. There are mounts available that grip the screen instead of screwing into the back. This type will look better.

It sounds like this is a problem with the inverter boards on the LCD panel. Unfortunately the inverter boards are usually only available with the whole LCD panel and the only way to fix it is by replacing the whole LCD panel. This is the most expensive part of the TV (about $1000) and you will need to take the whole TV apart in order to replace the panel. A new TV of similar make and model will usually be about the same price as the repair.

Image Retention

burn in is not supposed to occur on an lcd tv, however I have an lcd from Proview that leaves images on the polymer layer the white horizontal address bar is the most prominent. if I leave the monitor off for about 3 days the images disappear, this may or may not help you, if Samsung has created a ticket on this issue you may well receive a prepaid shipping label to return the tv for repair.
