Any idea what is causing this? Whats the problem? How is it fixed? Very strange though, tv just turned on by itself. I turned it off and could not get it to turn back on. The red light on the front just blinks steadily. Came back about 2 hours later and set was on again. I think it's the power supply, or it's got gremlins. The service guy will be out in the morning to look at it anyway.
Service person came to the house and replaced the power supply and the mother board. No charge, was covered under warranty, hopefully ends this problem. We'll see how the next 8 months go. Am very happy with the set otherwise.
Okay, this probably isn't your issue, but it may fix someone else's... I was just having the rapidly blinking LED problem while trying to turn on my TV from my DVR remote. I looked around and found my TV remote, which was sitting under some furniture. I guess the buttons were jammed and that was blocking up the remote. So, what I recommend before calling the repair man is to check if your remote is working properly :)
Here is some advise from a 4 year Samsung TV owner. I have bought two different models of Samsung DLP TV's and all I can say is avoid buying these TV's they always break within 2 years of ownership. I have examined countless forms and help sites during the periods of time when my Samsung DLP TV's were broken and discovered that many people who buy Samsung TV's say they experience various problems that cause their TV's to not function. If you pay anywhere above 1,000 dollars for a TV make sure it will last check reviews and be consumer educated because TV's are one of those things that should last at least 5 years without problems.
Yep Samsung will cover the replacement for the capacitors 1 time for free!! No matter how long you've had it, so take a chance and call them! Very helpful guy that helped me with my problem. I just hope that fixs it and it doesnt end up being the power converter...
Recently my 47" LG LCD TV started acting up. No sooner than a month passed and my TV was pronounce useless. All I got when I pressed ON was a black screen and a red power light flashing. The red power LeD would stay blinking forever until I pressed OFF and then it would stay a solid red like most electronics these days. So I made a few phone calls and did a quick research online and found out that it would cost over $500 to fix my TV which just so happened to be a month after my warranty expired. I did some more reasearch and realized I can fix it myself for under $30. The problem with my LG was the capacitors. A quick opening of the back panel will show you if this your problem. I made a tutorial video on how I did it. Check out the video on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EbGiXqBAvvo
Okay I am having the problem with my tv that the power light is flashing red. it will bring up a picture then shut off and keeps flashing. Called Samsung, said since its out of warranty there is nothing they can do for us. Really irritating because it was used six months put in a climate controlled storage unit for a year then used a month after my husband got home from iraq. I jus need to know if it will be cheaper to fix it then buy a new one.
I have a 2 year old Samsung 32 inch LCD TV. It was working fine last night but when i tried to turn it on today it wont turn on and the power button is flashing red light. I see this is a problem many other seem to have and many have fixed themselves. I am hoping that Samsung will make this right. Where are people getting these parts (compacitators) to fix it themselves?
My tv was working fine, but the light was just blinking. Thought I'd try to figure it out. Well thanks to this forum, I found the tv remote (I was just using the cable remote or manually operating) and found I had removed the batteries for use else where. Well I put in new batteries, turned off tv and turned back on with remote. It turned on, and the light blinked a few times, then stayed steady as it should! Problem fixed ... At least for now! Thanks for the help!
Blinking red light....picture turns off and then on automatically, clicking noise, cannot turn tv on or off when red light blinkiing....these are capacitor problem and samsung will fix it free one time only ( due to large number of calls on this)
I had the exact same problem just 5 mins ago and i was freaking out..turns out i found the old remote for it like someone suggested and pressed it and the light blinked really fast a few times then voila it turned on. Thanks!
