warrencr, that looks like maybe a board going out in the TV, or potentially the screen going. Either way, that doesn't look good.


More information, please! Does it do it with TV or specific sources? How is your source hooked up?

the same dots you see there, stay the same no matter what source you are or watching tv

But if i turn it off and turn it back on when that that happens, it goes back to normal...

It only happens when you first turn it on in the same day, not after that in the same day

These units have power supplys which fail in time due to faulty capacitors. I am 99.9% sure that this is the problem with yours. Samsung is now covering the cost of service for this problem. Get it to an Authorized Service Center ASAP.

Yeah as I recall this is likely a power supply issue. If you can't get the part replaced by Samsung, I wonder if you can source the part? It's REALLY easy to open the TV up (lay it flat on the screen, and remove some screw and the back just pops off!). I'd vote this is the problem. I believe you can check the capacitors yourself by taking the back cover off. Someone with more knowledge of this please chime in!

i dont know about open it myself, i dont have the right tool for this kind of screws

and how would i know wich capacitor is not working ...

cause if a capacitor is the problem, i don't think is completely burn out, the dots issue only happen 2 times a week mostly

the problem is not persistent so far


im wondering.. is the board replacement as easy as changing a card in my pc?
