20 Most Recent Samsung LE32A457 32 in. LCD TV Questions & Answers


Hello

First of all, it is not a USB port/slot, it is a 3.5 mm slot. And it can only be used Samsung technicians for "service" and nothing else.

Thanks for using Fixya!

You may lose some channels when you retune the TV as the channels have been rearranged. To locate them look at the EPG although you may still find that some channels are no longer available on FREEVIEW. See the following link for additional information

If the above process does not work then check the link above for additional information and also visit the accompanying site links below to find more information for your model of TV / FREEVIEW box.

I have a Samsung and it has worked with anything I've connected to it so far. Check the manufacturer of the sound bar you want to use.

Check whether the audio is muted by accidental press at remote control button. Enter its sound menu, and check it. If muted, as you know there will be no audio output. If not muted, check the speaker/s. If found OK; check and replace the damaged component/s at its audio output section circuit board. If needy, replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience.

Very likely that one or more component capacitors have failed, unplug from electrical power, remove rear cover and inspect using a flashlight for leaking/bulging capacitors. This will require soldering experience to replace.

Must be to a fault to its T'Con board.

This sounds like a very common issue.

If set is hard to turn on (takes several tries)but will eventually turn on hereis what my guess would be.

Every set has a standby power supplythat is running 7/24 if the set is plugged in and it supplies voltage to theremote circuit that turn on the main power supply for the tv and hence turn theset on.

This is an area where companies cut corners by using lower rated voltage caps.By this I mean Standby usually provides under 10 volts to trigger the seton----what they do is use filter caps rated at say 10 volts max in a circuitwith 9 volts (example)=with the standby on all the time the filter caps(electrolytic caps) dry out and fail.

The problem usually begins where you have to turn set on or or two times andgradually gets worse--takes longer and more tries to get it to come up.

Once on it will stay on until turned off for a period of time.

The caps will begin to work better (regain some of thecapacitance) as they get hot--hence one it is on it will seem ok.

The beauty of this problem is most of themhappen when set is a year or two old (no warranty) and all you have to do islook at the top to locate bad ones.

They are generally black or blue and round and vary in --they have twoconnections each--a + for positive and a - for negative--not unlike a batterywhich in a way they are. The + and - are marked on top and bottom of most boards.

They are easy to replace and not expensive parts.

The tops are silverand metal looking with creases on top and if bad they will be puffed up ontop---tops must be perfectly flat with no brown material leaking top or bottom.

If this is your problem once you id them (make a drawing) you can begin.

Here is the critical part---on each cap is also marked the value like 220uf 10vdc---220 micro farad at 10 volts maximum.

If you find for example 6 puffed up and all are 10 vdc replace them with thesame value capacitance (like the 220 uf) but go up to at least in this case(from 10 volts) to a 16 or higher rated voltage cap.

The only issue is when you go up in voltage rated value the cap is larger sosometimes there is an issue of physical space for the replacement on the boardto fit them in.

The reason they cheapen these sets in this way is if 10 caps and you make25,000 sets there is a considerable savings in parts cost.

They do not care as long as it lasts past the usual one year parts warranty.

I have taken the time to be long winded because this really sounds like it maybe the problem you have.

See attached photo of a typical cap and if you have questions or need advicelet me know.4_21_2012_3_07_04_pm.jpg

IT LOOKS LIKE WE ALL MAY ASWELL STEER CLEAR OF SAMSUNG AS THEY ARE **** BRANDS YOU NEVER HEAR OF THEIR BETTER BRANDS SONY GOING WRONG AS THEY WOULD BE IN IT UP TO THE NECKS WITH INSURANCE CLAIMS ASWITH PANASONIC , SAMSUNG ARE YOUR CHEAP WASHING MACHINE THAT ISNT WORTH A REPAIR ,IT ENDS IN RECYCLING
THATS WHY THEIR ARE LOADS OF MODELS OF THEM, THEY ARE NOT WORTH 300-500 QUID YOU MAY AS WELL PAY MORE AND INSURE IT FOR
A FIVE YEAR WASHING MACHINE GUARANTEE BECAUSE IF A LCD OR PLASMA DOESNT LAST FIVE YEARS ITS TIME GET OUT AND ABOUT MORE
INSTEAD OF SITTING ON OUR ARSES, LIFE EXPECTANCY YOUR AVERAGE WASHING MACHINE ,FRIDGE,COOKER, HOOVER,CAR ETC IS 5YEARS SO WHY DOES THE MODERN TVS DONT LIVE AS LONG REASON PROFITS.
GAZ SORRY FOR THE BOREDOM.
