Hello, My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be glad to assist you. Please keep in mind that there may be a few minutes between replies, as I research your problem.

How long have you had the set for?


Additionally, what is connected to the TV for devices (DVD, cable box, etc.), and do you have the same issue regardless of which Device you're watching?

Hi


I have the same issue as soon as i turn it on, regardless of what is connected, even in the setup screens


I have a cable box and streamer connected to the tv through a small sony home theater amp.

I forgot to mention i have the tv since december 2008 it's been working flawlessly since then

Thank you for the reply.


If you are 100% certain that the TV's internal setup screens (not the setup from a Cable Box, etc.), are also affected then there are no settings or adjustments on the TV that will fix this. The TV's MENU is unaffected by color, contrast, etc. adjustments. The issue you're having is actually a fault in the TV that requires component replacement.
The issue is either in one of the LED chips burning out and failing (most commonly the green), or the LED driver board itself is not providing adequate voltage to the LED chips.


This is a common failure in any sets that use the LED engine technology and is a costly fix. Average price for this type of repair is around $600 parts and labor if the LED driver is faulty, or closer to $250 if it's a simple chip replacement.

Well i figured out one of the leds could be burning, or so, arrived to you guys after reading this great post: http://www.justanswer.com/tv-repair/6jy9g-hello-i-samsung-67a750-just-started-going.html


 


I just didn't know which led defaults when the set becomes yellowish...

Thanks for the reply.

This could be caused by the Green burning up, or the Red LED failing. Both are much more common than the Blue failing for some reason unknown to me. What you would actually want to do, is remove the rear of the TV, trip the lamp door switch (tape it down), then look to see which LED of the three is not lighting at all, or is screamingly brighter than the others. This will tell you if you have to replace the Red, or the Green.

Thank you for your help!


I did not understand what you meant in "trip the lamp door switch (tape it down),"


Also, how do i test the leds's lighting, do i have to turn on the tv or should i use a 9v battery with each led?

There is a lamp door switch. When you remove the back of the TV, the switch may go to the open position. Find the two little wires that run from the body of the TV up to the lamp door cover, and that will be your switch. You would just take a piece of tape and tape the switch in the "closed" position. This is so that you can turn the TV on without the rear cover in place. You would then power the TV on and visually identify which LED is not lit.
