Screen failure on Samsung LE32A456C


Standard Member
My Samsung LE32A456C LCD tv picture has just failed whilst using my PS3. the sound is fine on using all sources however regardless of the source used (i.e. HDMI, scart, free view etc) the picture is either grey, black, white, red, green or checkered black & white.

Anyone know what this could be and can it be fixed. TV well looked after and only 24 months old.

The set may be in "Shop Mode"
See if you can access the plug n play setup option and reset it.

Surely shop mode would not display what the OP describes, anyway to switch between shop mode and home mode press and hold menu + volume on the TV not the remote for 5 to 10 seconds.
