Samsung UN70NU6070 TV Issue - HELP!
 
1 Attachment(s)
Evening,

I started experiencing color/brightness issues with my 70Ē Samsung tv after a year or so from date of purchase. It doesnít seem as bright and the colors are a little off. Is this a backlight issue or something else? Iím pretty hands on, so I donít mind tackling the issue if I can pinpoint what it is.

Any help would be appreciated.

Model #: UN70NU6070

Yes, it could be backlight. Did you you run it at 100%?
In the meantime you can change color temperature setting in user menu and tune white balance in service menu. Reduce backlight to minimum possible setting.
For best results run the test with fully white screen.
If white is good, you can play with tint setting for colors, but better set it in the middle.

Appreciate it the advice. Iíve played with all the settings, performed a picture and power reset, and even spoke with a Samsung representative. None of those were helpful. I may end up replacing the backlight due to it being inexpensive but was still hoping someone could pinpoint the exact issue.

It is unlikely to be the backlight, I would first check the source, possible bad hdmi cable? The next thing I would check (reseat) is the LVDS cable between the main board and t-con.

Change the picture settings to vivid or standard. See if that makes any difference.

Lol thanks for your Input.

Probably a gamma issue on the tcon. Think you're on the right track.

It does look as though the black level is washed out.

Replaced the tcon board. Itís definitely better but not perfect, then again Iím comparing it to the picture on my iPhone. Itís still a little saturated (maybe thatís the word)

Do you have pictures of both t-con boards? it is possible they could be for different models. You can't always go by the BNxx-xxxxxx number you need to use the number on the white sticker. I suspect there is an eeprom on the board and it bight be programmed for a different panel or main board

Not anymore. Old board is long gone but I purchased the new board based off the sticker on the back.

Another thing I noticed is that when I first turn the tv on, the colors appear to be perfect but slowly goes back to its original color issue

Could be the backlights. The phosporous on some of the LEDs may be failing causing a shift towards blue/purple (or pink before it gets to blue/purple).

The led strips could cause the color discrepancy? Am I wrong to assume the leds only assisted in fixing dark spots on the screen.

Yes they do but I have never found a samsung with that fault. Mostly vestels and LG. The picture will get blueish but I don't think this is the case.

turn the red up and see what happens

Much probably bad backlight, must check power supply output tensions for the leds, must be in the range, if not it can ruin the led phosphors by too much tension. If those are ok so are bad leds.

I totally agree with that.

Re: Samsung UN70NU6070 TV Issue - HELP!
 
Itís 100% nothing to do with any of the color settings. Iíve tried a million variations but the issue still remains. Next step is to order led lights. Iíll keep everyone posted. Thanks all.

How is this a bad method? Iím eliminating all the variables. If it works, great, if not, no big deal. Iím not going to cry over $50.

Replaced the led strips and I guess I wasn’t gentle enough and it appears I cracked the panel. Am I right?

ajshoe 08-25-2021 09:13 PM

Re: Samsung UN70NU6070 TV Issue - HELP!
 
normally don't crack screens in that area. I'd check ribbon connections or you have tab bond issues.

Davi.p 08-25-2021 11:12 PM

Re: Samsung UN70NU6070 TV Issue - HELP!
 
You have a cracked side part, after you have also a center crack or a cut in a cof tab.. tv for the landfill... i hope you were non alone, it's fool to dismantle a giant tv by himself..
Next tv let to add to it by a technician a protection for the transients, either outside or inside the tv, for example some varistors, maybe the next tv will last longer also the backlight...

ducky29 08-26-2021 03:24 AM

Re: Samsung UN70NU6070 TV Issue - HELP!
 
Looks like you have damaged the panel/ cof tabs.You should have asked for a replacement under warranty since the tv was 1 year old and not fuck around change every part of the tv just cuz the colors are a little bit of.

Sorry but the tv is not repairable anymore.

Davi.p 08-26-2021 03:48 AM

Re: Samsung UN70NU6070 TV Issue - HELP!
 
but in USA 1 year only warranty..

Haha take your tampon out. The tv was a free so why not attempt to fix it. Thatís why weíre all here right.

this is not a job for a beginner, must make practice with 32 inches , if them are used in your country..

Re: Samsung UN70NU6070 TV Issue - HELP!
 
This is why you buy a warranty on new tvs today. Costco doubles the manufacturers warranty. A lot of the tvs they sell have a 2 year warranty and they double it to 4 years. WISE BUY. I personally wouldn't buy a new tv unless it has at least a 4 year warranty.
