SAMSUNG LN46A650A1

Postby alwalk » Fri Jun 13, 2014 1:05 pm

Samsung LN46A650A1F: a friend of mine who was moving decided to give me his broken Samsung TV. he told me that the TV just keeps turning ON/OFF (cycling) I found out about the capacitor issues that this model was having and replaced them No more cycling off/on however the TV now has vertical lines or a vertical block of lines about 5" wide on the screen. let me explain, from the T-CON card there are 4 ribbon cables to the screen I believe the ribbons brake down to 4 sections of the screen it looks like sections 1 & 3 have these blocks of lines. I have pushed, wiggled, and re-seated all the cables looking for a change to help ID the problem, but the lines don't change. T-con is pretty cheap if that's the problem, but I'm not sure. Is there a way for me to rule out T-con as the problem? or is the main board the problem?.

Hello!



Judging by the image you posted this does seem like it can be caused by the T-CON, I thought these parts hard to find, do you mind sharing where you found them cheap? A lot of members are always on the lookout for these, especially repair centers and DIY people.



Thanks in advance!



Maybe some bit of trouble shooting I could help with is if the TV shows the same discrepancy on all digital and analog inputs? (say an HDMI vs a component). Also does it affect the OSD; If you open the menu is it also affected?

Thank you!



Can I ask you what parts you replaced to get your tv going again?
