Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

Hi - I have the samsung 46"LCD 550. I have the problem I'm hearing about with the turning on and off repeatedly by itself and then eventually it going to a loud screeching noise. The TV then has to be unplugged. I have heard that some people are doing some kind of software fix through the usb port for this problem. Any ideas?



Answers :

Can you get me the the complete model number like 46LNA550? It can be found on the label at the back of the tv. It can be the firmware or it can even be the inverter, but lets begin with the firmware

M220va wont turn on when plugged in and has a small white led light on the bottom right of the front panel that slowly flashes on and off. i've heard this light will come on when there is any problem with any of the boards, kind of like a safty shut off indicator. this makes it hard to diagnose since you cant look at any of the symptomes. sooo... i was wondering if there were any "common problems" with this model that might most likely need to be replaced (power board? main board?) fuse se

My Sony KDL32XBR4 keeps rebooting itself as if there was a Timer setting telling it to turn to a particular channel. It does this every couple of hours or so. There is no timer turned on, and the after the reboot it goes back to the same input option it was at. I'm wondering if that is a problem with a power supply or some kind of software issue.
