Samsung UE46F5000AKXXU led tv no start up/flashing red standby repair

February 2, 2018
We're now starting to see a few Samsung UE46F5000AKXXU led tvs coming into our workshop that no longer start up although they have a flashing red standby light showing there is still power present. Some of these initially had start up problems but would eventually work, but after extended use, then failed to come on at all.

If we can catch it early enough then hopefully we won't have to replace extra components that get damaged, but either way we have now identified and stock the required parts. This is a worth while repair, especially now we no longer need to replace whole pcbs!

Models:
Samsung UE46F5000AK

January 24, 2018
We have recently had a few Samsung UE32EH4000W tvs coming in which are dead.
Despite not being made in the same factory as most other tv brands, they appear to suffer from a similar fault to others so we have a ready stock of components to fix them.

This affects UE32EH4000W/UE32EH4000WXXU models and potentially other Samsungs with a similar model - I will try to update as we find more.

Toshiba 22DL833B, 22DL834B, 24D1333B, 24D1333B2 and 24D1433DB TV Repairs - Turned off by itself, now no power/dead or stuck on flashing standby light

March 15, 2016

The latest batch of Toshiba TV models appear to have similar problems to the 22BL702B/19DL502B/22DL702B/22DL704B range.

The models 22DL833B, 22DL834B, 24DL1333B, 24DL1333B2 and 24DL1433DB all have a common fault where they will suddenly turn off while on and then lose power becoming completely dead. They may also decide just not to turn on one day with a flashing standby light. Although 24" and similar size TVs don't cost the Earth these days - they are even cheaper to repair. Plus its one les...

Pioneer KRP500P Plasma TV repair - 8 blue standby flashes

December 4, 2015
Pioneer TVs, compared to other TV manufacturers, tend to be much more of a challenge to repair, and their pricing strategy for spares tend to raises questions whether they even want their TVs to be repairable at a reasonable and sane price.

However if we can get down to component repair, such as in this case, then it becomes much more affordable.
The Pioneer KRP-500P display is a solid bit of tech, though with all TVs, can go wrong. If your Pioneer KRP-500P intermittently won't turn on and give...

LG 42LS575T Led tv intermittent no picture/backlight repair (sound ok)

November 2, 2015
We have had a few LG 42LS575T led tvs in recently with all similar issues. While surprising to see such young tvs already appearing in our repair shop, it is encouraging to see that they are quite repairable and at what I believe to be at an affordable cost. 

If your tv is suffering from loosing its picture, while the sound stays on ok, then it is worth us (or any other professional tv engineer) having a look as we could save you from having to pay out for a brand new tv. Initially the picture...

Backlight/No Picture Repair on LG Tv models 32LN5400ZALG, 47LN5400ZALG and 50LN575VZE

October 29, 2015
We can now source the screen components required to repair LG tv models that suffer from no picture/no backlights issues (but the sound comes on ok).

LG (and other manufacturers) have long denied tv engineers the parts required for this economical repair which meant a lot of tvs got unnecessarily thrown out at the dump by people. It is very encouraging to see LG and Samsung now starting to supply screen components and hopefully others will follow suit.

Please note that LG do not yet supply scre...

The Evotel brand may not be a well known brand, but they do the job of sound and vision just fine. However, if you have a tendency to turn these off at night then they can get intermittent power switch issues, eventually resulting in a power fault.

We have the parts in stock and can do a quick turn around on repair.
