The power supply is failing.

Hi Lizzette,
I am afraid your problem is a little technical. Well if you know something about lcd tv technicals, the problem seems to be the T Con board and/or its connectors. Check the ribbon cables and connectors, clean them properly and and start the tv.If it is not possible or it does not work, please consult someone qualified to handle your set. Good luck.

Most likely a broken backlight

Yeah, you most likely have the same TV I do. I changed the capacitors and it kind of helped.. I discovered the problem is with humidy and rainy days! Is your TV near a window? I ordered a screen power inverter but just moved the TV upstairs and away from excessive humidy and its been fine ever since. I might still put the inverter in eventually.

This could be 2 things, a main board or a power supply. I have replaced many main control boards on samsungs and it solved the problem. But sometimes it could be the power supply. You will need to test the voltages on the power supply to rule out the power supply being bad.

I am confused here!

if the studs (vertical parts of frams) are 40" apart and the noggins ( spreaders are say every 20" )

Why are you trying to find them at 16 and 24?

Is there some cultural labnguage difference here about what a stud is?

An alternate fix rather than 100 holes in the wall is to use butterfly bolts ( expander bolts) these can hold up to 150Kg in any veneer wall
If nescessary drill extra holes in the frame of the TV haqnging frame4 to add more expande4r bolts into the wall

Attach finished 1x4s to the two studs. Attach telelvision bracket to the 1x4.

That's really odd that a power outage did that. I would try unplugging the TV, hold the power button for 10-15 seconds and then leave it unplugged for an hour and come back and try it again, that will for sure reset everything by removing power from it. If that doesn't have any effect then its possible the mainboard got damaged by a surge.
