Looking for tips on how to troubleshoot a Samsung 15 inch LCD TV? The nice thing about most LCD televisions is the fact that you can troubleshoot them on your own without having to get on the phone with technical support or hiring a television repair person. This guideline will give you tips for troubleshooting most common issues that arise with a Samsung 15 inch LCD TV, such as remote control malfunctions, no picture, and sound and/or picture interference.
To troubleshoot a Samsung 15 inch LCD TV, you will need:
- A Samsung 15 inch LCD TV
- A remote control for your Samsung 15 inch LCD TV
- Remote Control Malfunctions. If your Samsung 15 inch LCD TV remote control is not working, the first thing that you should do is replace the batteries. Be sure to only use new batteries that are of the same brand. While you are replacing the batteries, take a peak at the battery terminals to ensure that they are clean and free of rust. You can also use a microfiber cloth to clean the transmission window that is found on the front of the remote control.
- Sound And Picture Interference. In most cases, there is nothing wrong with your Samsung 15 inch LCD TV if you are experiencing sound and/or picture interference. It is likely that there is a nearby appliance that is causing your issues. To troubleshoot this problem, try unplugging appliances one-by-one that are near your Samsung 15 inch LCD TV until you find the culprit. If you cannot relocate the appliance, you may be able to resolve the sound and/or picture interference that you are experiencing by plugging your Samsung 15 inch LCD TV into a different main socket.
- No Picture. Having no picture is one of the easiest Samsung 15 inch LCD TV technical difficulties to troubleshoot. Of course, if you have no picture, ensure that your Samsung 15 inch LCD TV is plugged in and turned on. You should also check the cables that connect your television to the device that you are trying to use to ensure that they are properly connected. If that does not solve your issue, you can try adjusting the brightness and contrast settings on your Samsung 15 inch LCD TV by pressing "Menu" on your remote and using the up and down arrows to scroll to "Picture." Once you have selected "Picture," press "Enter" and use the arrows to adjust the brightness and contrast settings.
Please do not attempt to troubleshoot your Samsung 15 inch LCD TV on your own if you feel that you do not possess the necessary technical skills. If you are unable to resolve the issue that you are experiencing, take note of the model and serial number of your Samsung 15 inch LCD TV and contact Samsung technical support or your local Samsung dealer for assistance.
