Samsung tvs with purple/bluey picture or has white spots on screen

Posted by Peter Hancock on Monday, October 11, 2021, In : Repair 
There have been a number of Samsung tvs coming into the workshop with either a purple/bluey picture issue or have white spots.

Purple/bluey picture:
This fault is caused by a chemical change in the leds, which leads to a change in the colour they emit. We now have stock of compatible alternative to the most common Samsung strips, and can replace the whole led array to cure this fault. These strips are of better quality than the originals and should not have the same issue in the future!

LG TVs with purple/blue picture

There have been a number of LG tvs coming into the workshop over the last 6 months with a purple/bluey picture issue. Models affected were manufactured in or around 2018.

This fault is caused by a chemical change in the leds, which leads to a change in the colour they emit.

Panasonic TV startup issues, green light but no Picture or Sound (2010 and 2011 models)

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.

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...

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

Panasonic DMREZ47VEBK vhs recording issues - picture tearing

Posted by Peter Hancock on Monday, February 9, 2015, In : Repair 
We have recently had a couple of similar Panasonic recorders come in with various issues. One is where the recording in VHS mode gives picture tearing issues, even though a normal VHS retail tape will play ok. This is usually down to wear and tear and we can currently still obtain the parts to repair this. Thankfully Panasonic uses the same parts in a few different models making it easier to get them (as they are more common).

Remember, any DVD read error issues on these models including fault...

Evotel LCD40USBFHD picture too bright/colour bleed issues/solarised

Posted by Peter Hancock on Tuesday, December 2, 2014, In : Repair 
Not a well known make, but we have found that the Evotel LCD40USBFHD uses the same screens that you will find in a lot of Samsung TVs. These sometimes get a fault where the picture is too bright or the colour runs or shows the wrong colours in faces etc. The picture may become solarised or negative, and all these faults may be present on switch on or occur after the tv has warmed up after a few minutes.

This is usually due to components overheating, and not necessarily a faulty screen.

Good new...

Samsung LE37M87BDXXEU whited out picture

Posted by Peter Hancock on Wednesday, October 29, 2014, In : Repair 
A Samsung lcd tv with whited out picture does not necessarily mean the screen is faulty. It is usually down to a component or two which drives the graphics to the screen, of which we now keep in stock as they are common to a lot of Samsung models and can regularly give other strange picture faults such as a solarised or negative picture.

Not an easy repair, but still cheaper than a new tv.

Known affected models:
LE37M87BDXXEU
LE37A556P1FXXU
LE37R87BDXXEU

Other similar models likely to also be affec...

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...

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.

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...

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...
