Oh... Plasma!

I'd bet money we ae talking a capacitor on your power board...
but hey (watch videos... learn... and SAVE $100s).

You must verify your own circuit board numbers.

I'm a three time winner of the cheesy Samsung Capacitor award
(NOT REAL... But should be).

Hello Ginger Wills,

Sorry about your troubles. What sound reception means is your set is working (in large part)... 'cept for the picture part.

Before I make ANY recommendations... I can say I have had two careers in (industrial-grade) electronics... If only to get your close attention to two VERY stern recommendations (more like commandments):

Always wear (ESD) anti-static wrist strap ($6, see below) when handling "electronics" you value (a small static spark can burn right through one of those BIG UGLY Diodes in your vehicles alternator).

I DO NOT recommend live power work... the boards are simply to cheap... it s an iterative process... So you guess wrong: put away that "good spare" (so labeled) and order other board...

For a BIG failure like yours...

If you MUST (I generally recommend against it) take live voltage readings... DO SO with one hand in your pocket... A two handed EMBRACE of even a SMALL amount of electricity... can be catastrophic (professionals power off and/or use insulated gear...
shoes, gloves (no rings, no watches))...

and only using a QUALITY volt-ohm-meter (VOM, Like a FLUKE, 101 BASIC, again... see below).

You DO NOT want to earn the nick-name "SPARKY"... trust me!

Now all you need to know... is to track where every ***** comes from (easily done with a drawing & awl on a piece of cardboard... Take picture BEFORE you remove ANYTHING...

Force NOTHING (SOME CABLES have clever little releases)...


Put EVERY WIRE EXACTLY WHERE YOU FOUND IT... You will be proud. Everybody has to start someplace... This might just be your place...


ELSE... (house-call):

Sears DOES guarantee (so to speak) their SAMSONITE Gorilla won't break much... but so did Circuit City before they evaporated (I'm just saying (sorry... It's genetic: I can't help myself)).

Sears has boards for sale, has them... of course eBay & Amazon...

Take a look at TAMPATEC ... Smart young-fellow... breaks less than he fixes... (BEST: he admits when he SPARK'd a circuit board (kudos).

Modern TVs are pretty simple... but I only guarantee: If you go in carelessly you will turn a slight mal-function into a MAJOR CATASTROPHIE... Have no doubt!

Oh by the way... When everything goes sideways... If you try "SAMSUNG PARTS"... USA (and it will...Samsung will IMMEDIATELY disavow any RELATIONSHIP to them...

JUSTIFIABLY SO... They are unscrupulous clowns... I did WAY BETTER on eBay... I swear!!

(and VERY willing to testify... Net ZERO (Time donated)).

Go there ("SAMSUNG PARTS") at your own risk...!!

TV trys to turn on about 3 times then does not turn on at all.

Fault to the main power supply regulator section. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.
It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

I have a samsung pn51d450, when turned on it has sound, flashes and then goes blank. What could be the problem?

These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.
Blinking codes details to many popular brand TVs are given. Surf the site with patience.

If the sound on your DLP TV is out of sync with your picture and the TV is not connected to a home theater system, a Samsung technician can adjust the sound sync function on the TV so that the sound and picture are in sync.
To arrange a service call to adjust the sound sync function, call Samsung Customer Care at 1-800-SAMSUNG (1-800-726-7864).
