Samsung LT32E390SXXU led tv repair - Dead/Died while watching

Posted by Peter Hancock on Wednesday, May 11, 2022, In : Repair 
When released, the Samsung LT32E390SXXU 32" led tv was a very reasonably priced but solid made tv... However it looks like some of the components can randomly go "pop" and the good news is that this is repairable with upgraded components for a reasonable price!

Please contact us for a quote/appointment for drop off at the workshop.

Known tv models affected:
LT32E390

Samsung UE32EH4000W tv dead/no power repair

Posted by Peter Hancock on Wednesday, January 24, 2018, In : Repair 
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.

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

Posted by Peter Hancock on Thursday, October 29, 2015, In : Repair 
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...

Toshiba 40L1333 LED TV sound no picture/backlight

Posted by Peter Hancock on Wednesday, February 11, 2015, In : Repair 
We are starting to see LED tvs in the repair shop now, it seems to be that the new LED technology is having some teething issues and are failing earlier than expected.

We are still at the early stages of repair methods for these, however we have had some good success getting the picture back.

If you have a Toshiba LED tv with sound, but either no picture or a very dark picture then it we should be able to repair it.

Philips 50PFP5532D05 Plasma TV - Clicking noise, red flashing standby

Posted by Peter Hancock on Friday, July 18, 2014, In : Repair 
This beast (in a good way) of a TV packs a punch with plenty of ports including 2 HDMI points for external devices. These TVs, however, tend to run quite hot and therefore some components do wear out over a period of time. We can get these parts and if your faulty Philips TV refuses to turn on and has a clicking noise every few seconds then it may be time for a service.

Please ring beforehand to make an appointment (or we can call out to Bath area), this is not a TV that you want to lug around...

Toshiba 32BL702B and 32BV502B no sound but picture ok. Sound fades out after a couple of hours

Posted by Peter Hancock on Tuesday, May 27, 2014, In : Repair 
We have come across some TVs, including the Toshiba 32BL702B and 32BV502B, where it loses sounds but the picture remains ok. The sound may fade out after 30 minutes but can last up to a few hours until the issue arises. The sound may even start working again if the TV is turned off for a while.

We now have the repair kits in to fix this issue, if you have a similar sounding issue (no pun intended) then please ring us to see if we can help.

Samsung models LE32A456C2D and LE32A457C1D TV Repairs - Slow to turn on/turns itself off

Posted by Peter Hancock on Tuesday, May 6, 2014, In : Repair 
Both the Samsung LE32A456C2D and LE32A457C1D LCD TVs suffer from a few power-related issues. Sometimes it can be slow to turn on or refuse to turn on, and other times it can suddenly just turn itself off. These issues may happen together or independently of each other but are both repairable and cheaper than buying a new TV. These also have a good number of external connections available that modern TVs no longer have due to cost-cutting, and the HD picture will be just as good, if not better...

Samsung LE26R74BDXXEU TV loses Freeview tuning

Posted by Peter Hancock on Thursday, November 21, 2013, In : Repair 
Some of the Samsung LE26R74BDXXEU TV lose Freeview tuning making it impossible to get Freeview without a separate box. Scart and other ports appear to remain ok. We have now narrowed down the issue to basic component failure making it far cheaper to repair than replacing boards left, right and centre.

These models may also be affected:

LE26R73BDXXEU

Posted by Peter Hancock on Thursday, November 7, 2013, In : Repair 
Some Toshiba LCD TVs have been affected by a glitch that results in a rushing noise/noisy audio at low levels. May also be described as a low roaring/airy sound, which happens on all sources but most noticeable when using scart or hdmi ports. We have found this issue recently with a 37AV554D model but it is known to affect others of a similar build.

We now have the technology to repair this defect and is a worthwhile and permanent fix.

Toshiba 32AV615D and 32AV635D Picture issues - Multicoloured lines on screen

Posted by Peter Hancock on Wednesday, June 26, 2013, In : Repair 
Yet more screen faults, we've now found that the basic but good old reliable Toshiba TVs are now also suffering from picture faults, mainly due to the screen which wasn't made by them!

We have had some Toshiba 32AV615D and 32AV635D models in recently which display a flash of multicoloured criss-cross lines intermittently.



If your TV looks a bit like the picture above then we may be able to help!
This is relatively a new issue for us so if you have a Toshiba model that is different to the ones st...

Sony KDL-S2010 Series

Posted by Peter Hancock on Monday, February 11, 2013, In : Repair 
Since the New Year we have had a small number of Sony's KDL-S2010 model in for repair.

Issue #1:
  • No function of Digital Freeview channels, but picture/sound ok through the scart/HDMI
  • TV clicks on and off/resets on its own
  • TV refuses to turn on and red standby light flashes 9 times 
Issue #2:
  •   Not working/dead/no standby light

Both issues can be resolved with no or little component replacement though good knowledge and expertise in repairs is necessary. These repairs were all cost effective, if you ...

Samsung LE32A456C2DXXU Repairs

Posted by Peter Hancock on Thursday, November 1, 2012, In : Repair 
We are currently getting a number of these into the workshop where some refuse to turn on (continuous red flashing light) or where sometimes they turn on and off again or switch themselves off.

These can be separate issues but both can usually be repaired within one working day. These tvs still give an outstanding picture (especially in HD) and the sound will be far superior to the cheap knock offs you get in the Supermarket. Think I'm being biased? Having worked on a fair number of TVs that h...

Bush IDLCD32TV16HD Repairs

Posted by Peter Hancock on Thursday, November 1, 2012, In : Repair 
Now Bush may not be one of my favourite brands but I have to admit the IDLCD32TV16HD seems to do a rather good job of providing a reasonable picture and some decent sound for a "budget" tv. While newer tv's freeview have stopped working properly with the latest signal these seem to soldier on.

Because of the age of these sets I appreciate not many people would consider repairing them, yet if I point out that it has all the HD and scart you'll ever need, you might think again. These generally g...

Samsung LCD TV Erratic volume and channel behaviour

Posted by Peter Hancock on Thursday, August 9, 2012, In : Repair 
Some Samsung LCD TVs are experience odd behaviour where the volume goes up or down by itself or may channel flick without you pressing any buttons. This can be a fault within the tv, not necessarily the remote! However this is repairable and we generally have the parts in stock for quick turn around.

LE32A456C2D or similar

Goodmans GTVL32W17HDF & GTVL32W27HDF LCD TV Repairs

Posted by Peter Hancock on Friday, July 6, 2012, In : Repair 
Even though Goodmans isn't what it once was, an actual company, and now more of a badge, some of their tvs to come out in the last 5 years are still worth saving.

 The GTVL32W17HDF & GTVL32W27HDF models are good examples of this. 

Good looking, slim, and HD Ready, these can still punch above their weight in sound and picture quality. An added bonus is that it has 2 scart ports compared to the usual 1 (or 0) you get in new "Smart" TVs, handy for that old VCR or DVD Player you may still like to u...

Toshiba Freeview Issues - No Picture or Sound

Posted by Peter Hancock on Friday, May 11, 2012, In : Repair 
There is a known fault with the Toshiba 32C3030D / 32C3030DB series where the Inbuilt Freeview can suddenly stop working. It will lose both sound and picture and if you press menu then the menu screen only briefly appears. You may find that external sources (e.g. DVD player) will work perfectly fine.

We now have a permanent fix for this and can have it repaired on the day it is brought into the shop. The charge of the repair should be under £50, and in my view, a worth-while fix as the Toshib...

LG 32LG7000 LCD TV Picture issues

Posted by Peter Hancock on Thursday, January 19, 2012, In : Repair 
We have recently had an increase of faulty LG LCD TVs, and although rarely the same problem, we have noticed that the LG LG7000 series, most notably the LG 32LG7000ZA, there is an issue where the picture can switch off at random intervals yet the sound remains perfectly fine.

Although this usually suggests faulty components, it can just be a case that the TV just needs a good servicing. This service could cost as little as £30+VAT so please consider having it repaired before letting it end up...
