Samsung Flat Panel Repair


A friend of mine has a Samsung flat panel that was stuck in standby mode. We took the back off and looked at the power supply board. One of the electrolitic caps, 2200uf 10V had a bulged top. I replaced it and it is working fine now! Sorry no pics but this is my 2nd cap repair post. If you have an item that has quit working look at the caps! Total cost of repair was around 25 cents and a case of beer for my work . dorf dude...

And if there is not some other defect causing this capacitor to fail [high ripple current, overvoltage], then congrats!

Samsung Flat Panel Repair


I have a 40" LCD Samsung t.v. that I presume to be a loss? The screen was hit and now there is just red and green lines that run through it. I'm assuming there is no fix and if there was it will cost as much as a new t.v.?

Typically speaking, if the screen gets broken (LCD, LED or Plasma) it is far cheaper to replace the set, compared to replacing the screen. There are a few exceptions, but very few.
