    Hi All,

    I have been pointed in the direction of this n/g with the thought
    there may be a 'known issue / fault' on the following model please?

    Samsung 15 inch TFT TV.

    Model code LW15M13CX/XEU
    Model LW15M13C. S
    Type No MU15EO

    A friend bought one around 6 months ago and it recently failed. The
    screen is 'blank' but the power is on and the remote changes the
    channel judging by the audio.

    The shop she bought it from as now gone and she has been quoted a
    potential repair cost around the current price of a new replacement

    All the best

    If you put it in bright light (sunlight, spotlight, something) can you make
    out a picture? If so then you need to look at the backlight tubes or

    Hi All,

    I got an email from my friend yesterday .....


    "Well, B****r me!

    I forgot to do this when I got home last night, but then I woke up at
    3.30 this morning and thought that I may as well try it as it is a
    good time with it being dark etc.

    So I switch on the TV, and blow me down if it didn't work!

    Now, before you say anything, I had tried it several times over a
    period of a few weeks and could not get it to do anything, I had tried
    adjusting all sorts of things and had even followed the destruction
    manual for this type of fault, but could not get it to work. ...

    So, I suppose time will tell ?

    Thanks for the help ..

    *sigh* tried adjusting things? Why do people *always* fiddle with alll the
    adjustments when something breaks? Thankfully LCD's tend not to have
    non-user adjustments accessible.

    I suspect there's a bad solder joint or other intermittant problem on the
    backlight inverter, the problem will crop up again.

    Good question .. We stopped to help a fellow cyclist the other day and
    it looked like the rear wheel had tried to eat his rear gear mech ;-(
    He said 'I was just fiddling with the gears when .. " ;-)

    Thankfully LCD's tend not to have
    Indeed .. and just as well maybe ;-)
    Well, if it does at least we now have a better idea what might be
    wrong .. ie it's not the backlights themselves?

    All the best ..
