Question about Samsung TX-P2670WH 26" TV

Samsung 26" (CRT) HDTV won't turn on...


Would definitely appreciate any info/help u could provide me...

My [CRT] HDTV at random times refuses to turn on [via remote or manually on the set] - some days it turns on w/no problem, some days I press the power switch and can actually hear the tube try to power up but does not successfully turn on.
When it DOES turn on, a musical tone can be heard upon start-up & the picture appears... when it does NOT turn on, I will only hear a sort of low, base-tone, "pop" sound. After one to a few days pass [I'll keep trying every once in awhile to turn it on] so far, it eventually does turn on.

Based on what u know/experienced, can my problem be fixed by simply replacing a part or two (diode-bridge, ic controller, trans flyback, etc.) ?

Thank you for your time!

Since the set works some of the time, I'd first look for poor connections. One thing to keep in mind is when the set does NOT work properly. does that occur more frequently with heat? cold? Humidity? If you can solder, first try resoldering any connecitons on the boards that appear grainy or have rings. If that does not resolve the problem, look for patterns for when the set fails. Those patterns will help to narrow down the possibilities.

Keep me posted,

My Panasonic CT26WX15N CRT HDTV wont turn on. The Red LED light blinks around 10 times. When I unplug the power cord and plug it back in it turns on. But I want to know if there is a permanent fix for...

It sounds that the IIC bus circuit has the fault. The main board should be troubleshooted. Visit this site, and check whether there is any details about this type of fault. Pull up older posts there.

No picture but sound on tv lcd

Hi, thanks for the question. The best solution to this kind of problem is for you to get a Firmware Update for your LCD HDTV or Plasma HDTV. It is a microcode update for the chips inside your set. How to do it?

1. Take note of the brand and model number of your unit. You can find these details on the back of the set on a sticker. Consider taking down note on the date of purchase if the TV is still under warranty.

2. Call your service provider for the firmware update. They'll definitely glad to help you solve your problem.

Good Luck! I wish it helps... Thanks.

    Component cables on HDTV not working

    have you tried hooking a different video source upto to the tv to make sure it is not the dvd player that is not giving a signal to the tv?  Like an Xbox 360 or anything else with component output.

    RE: Samsung 26" (CRT) HDTV won't turn on...

    THe problem is not likely to be a defective part although that could be the case. I would first look for poor solder connections that would have been agrivated by any moves that you have made. If you can solder, resolder any connections on any board that appear grainy or have rings.

    Keep me posted.

    you might have to go to and download a new owners manual, you can read the manual online I think and download it. go to the troubleshooting area in the back of the guide and look for your specific problem. Im not sure on that particular television set but their maybe a setting in configuration that sets the ((tv back to factory or default settings)), try that setting, We have a standard definition set at our house only. sorry I cant be of more help, If I get a minute Ill go to samsung and take a look for you okie?

    Tv turns on, but when you turn it off it won't turn back on.

    sounds like its a cold solder connection somewhere in the set or a capacitor thats bad in the power suppy.. These problems are the most dificult to troubleshoot unless they happen all the time.sorry I wish I could give you more info..
