LG 43UK6470 (and similar) no image/display repair - Backlights ok

LG 43UK6470 (and similar) no image/display repair - Backlights ok

We are seeing a number of LG tvs (usually 43" and 55") that are coming into the workshop with no display/no image however the backlights and other functions seem to be working ok. This can be down to a fault on the lcd panel (aka the screen) and instead of replacing the whole lcd panel which is usually uneconomical - we have a good chance of repairing the existing one and getting a perfect picture again. If your LG model is not ...

We have in stock the required parts to fix a fairly common issue with the Sony KDL40WD653 (and potentially other models) where the sound and backlights work, but no picture or menu appears.

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

Posted by Peter Hancock on Friday, February 2, 2018, In : Repair 
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 part...

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.


Please note: We do not give free advice on DIY repairs, if you would like your tv repaired it will need to be b...

Posted by Peter Hancock on Tuesday, January 23, 2018, In : Repair 
Recently we have had a lot of Panasonic TVs coming into our workshop with startup issues. They have the green light as usual but no picture or sound. This seems to be affecting the 2010 and 2011 models.

Please don't skip them just yet, we have the fix!

Update: We're getting a lot of inquires from outside of our area - Please contact your local tv engineer, as we don't offer a repair service over the phone or send out replacement boards for diy repair.

Posted by Peter Hancock on Thursday, February 23, 2017, In : Repair 
Bush DLED32165HD led tvs which suddenly lose power/die when switched on seem to be down to some weak components.
We have a good stock of high quality components which we can use to repair these tv sets for a reasonable price.

If you'd like to find out more please contact us via phone or email (details in "Contact Us").

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

Posted by Peter Hancock on Monday, November 2, 2015, In : Repair 
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

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...

Evotel ELCD40USBFHD no power/dead - repair

Posted by Peter Hancock on Thursday, March 19, 2015, In : Repair 
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.


Known Affected Models:

Evotel ELCD26USBFHD

Bush LCD40883F1080P not turning on - repair

Posted by Peter Hancock on Thursday, March 19, 2015, In : Repair 
These 40" LCD tvs tend to get issues after 3 years due to some sub-stand components. However, they give a very good HD picture pound for pound and have plenty of connection ports.

If your Bush LCD40883F1080P is not turning on, with the white standby light briefly flashing off and then back on, then it may have the same issue to what we have seen come into the repair shop.

If you want to bring it in for repair then we will upgrade the components and potentially save you £100 or more on a new tv...

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.

Affected known models:
Toshiba 32L1333
Toshiba 32L1333D

Bush LED24970FHDT/LED24970DVDFHD TV repair - Dead/Died while turning on. Now no power

Posted by Peter Hancock on Wednesday, November 5, 2014, In : Repair 
We are starting to see some Bush LED24970FHDT and Bush LED24970DVDFHD TVs in for repair.

Some have been reported the TV losing power when trying to turn on, other have said it died while watching tv. Either way, as long as its "dead" and there is no standby light on it then there's a good chance we can repair it for a sensible price.

Known Affected TVs:

Philips 37PFL9603H10 looses Freeview channels, brief picture then blank

Posted by Peter Hancock on Wednesday, October 29, 2014, In : Repair 
Although I'm not currently a fan of Philips TVs (tracing their circuitry is a like trying to find a needle in a quagmire), the Philips 37PFL9603H10 can be more straight forward to fix and therefore cost-effective.

If your Philips 37PFL9603H10 has recently lost its Freeview channels, and/or you get a brief glimpse of channel name also showing before going blank (with the backlight still on) with no audio or display, then this should be repairable.

Although I've not come across one yet, I'd imagi...

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...

Samsung LE27T51BXXEU TV sound ok but no picture

Posted by Peter Hancock on Thursday, January 30, 2014, In : Repair 
The Samsung LE27T51BXXEU TV is older model granted, but the picture and sound on it aren't that far off some more modern TVs. If your Samsung LE27T51BX has recently lost it's picture but the sound remains ok - Might just be worth getting it repaired as components are still available for it, and at an affordable cost.

LG 42PQ3000ZA Plasma TV - turns on and off, clicking noise/dead

Posted by Peter Hancock on Thursday, January 30, 2014, In : Repair 
Although Plasma TVs are not my favourite thing in the world, I have to admit that LG, Panasonic and Samsung have made some rather nice ones. Some are more repairable than others though, and LG's 42PQ3000ZA can usually be repaired for a reasonable fee compared to most - If your 42PQ3000ZA has been struggling to turn on, clicks on and off with a red to green back to red standby light then it can usually be repaired (ideally the sooner you bring it in the better).

Other models included are:

Sony RDR-HX890 stuck on Guide Plus after update

Posted by Peter Hancock on Tuesday, November 26, 2013, In : Repair 
There has been an issue with the Sony RDR-HX890 HDD/DVD Freeview recorders since Sony did a recent firmware update. It can affect the machine by forcing it to use Guide Plus for recording - unfortunately this feature is no longer supported and the Digital Guide needs to be unlocked.

This is something we can fix, and once done, you will be able to record tv again!

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
LE32R73BDXXEU
LE37R73BDXXEU
LE26R74BDXXEU

Recently a lot of Top Up PVR recorders have lost their guide making it impossible to make any timer recordings.

Normally older freeview recorders struggle with the latest signal but these can be put right. Repair will cost between £30-£40+Vat (not including Call Out).

There are a lot of different makes and models that use the Top Up TV software, the ones known with this fault are listed below:

Wharfedale TU160DTR

Rushing noise/noisy audio at low level from Toshiba AV554 & AV555 models fix now available

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.

Having a few Toshiba 40XV551D or similar LCD TVs in for repair at the moment - Come in completely dead - no lights, no sound, no picture.

Cracked Laptop/Notebook/Netbook Screen Replacements

Posted by Peter Hancock on Monday, March 11, 2013, In : Repair 
We can now source and replace most laptop, notebook and netbook screens. Due to the number of different types of screen we can only offer a rough repair price quote upfront. Once we have stripped down the laptop and spoken to our suppliers we can then give you the actual repair cost.

Because of this, we are waivering our usual upfront Inspection charge.

Labour charge is fixed and total repair cost soley depends on the size and type of screen. Price of screens tend to fluctuate so I can only sug...

Humax to release first YouView set top box

Posted by Peter Hancock on Friday, July 6, 2012, In : Products 

 
YouView is the latest smart technology to come to the TV world. Designed to compete against Sky and Virgin, this handy little recorder will let you pause and rewind live TV, record two channels at once, and watch programmes from 7 days ago.

So how is this different from what is already on the market?
 
Well to start with I should point out that it really isn't anything new in terms of technology. It's very much like the well-respected Humax HDR-FoxT2 series in its functions yet it can do everyt...

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...

Yet more Samsung LCD TVs in for repair!

Posted by Peter Hancock on Tuesday, April 24, 2012, In : Repair 
Within the last couple of months we have seen an increase in the Samsung A55 model versions coming in for repair. This includes the LE40A557P2FXXU and LE40A559P4FXXU. They appear to have a similar power supply issue to the older  LE40R88BDXXEU and LE40R87BDXXEU models but currently we can repair them slightly cheaper and due to components required.

If you have a Samsung LE40A557P2, LEA559P4F or a similar model and it is taking longer to turn on, turns itself off or refuses to turn on at all (p...
