Jwx41600:

I had the same problem with my Samsung TV Model: TXR3079WHX. However, I was able to repair my set while it was still intermittant (would turn off by itself after 30 minutes of operating, would have to wait 5 minutes before it would turn on again).

I troubleshot my problem with a can of component cooler from Radio Shack and found my problem to be a defective voltage regulator, identified as "QR015" on the main circuit board (the same board that contains the high voltage section).

Caution:

Before I proceed any further I need to strongly warn you. Do not attempt to remove the back cover, troubleshoot, repair or perform the actions that I have done, if you are not a "qualified service technician". Removing the back cover exposes you (and anyone else) to harmful and deadly electric shock, even though the TV may be unplugged from the wall outlet and turned off. You (or anyone else) can be seriously injured or even killed. If you are not qualified, play it safe by allowing others who are qualified repair this for you.

The defective part (overheats and shuts your TV off) is voltage regulator manufactured by Fairchild. The part number is KA75450ZTA. This part is available from Mouser Electronics for less than 20 cents plus shipping. In order to replace this part a qualified technician will need to remove certain cables and unscrew the main board to allow access to desolder and solder the new component.

Hope this helps.

Most likely bad capacitors in the power supply.
Samsung LCD units have the power board in the middle of unit. You might see 2 or 3 electrolytic capacitors bulged at the top where it should be flat.

Well, I have found out that the number of red light blinks is a "blink code" that indicates the nature of the fault with the TV. Usually these are various failures of internal fuses or circuit boards. There's a fair amount of information on threads at techlore.com on this, so try searching there. Teh specific codes and manuals are usually it seems under license from Sony and not available for free to the public. Sorry!

Flashing screen


The power compensator IC is bad along with most likley the main board. This is going to be an expensive repair. If the warranty expired in January, and you were in touch with them about then and they did nothing, you should try to fight with them. They may send out a repair person to get your set working again. Another possibility would be, if you have homew owners insurance and a tech can say that the problem was due to a power surge, the insurance will take care of part of the repair bill. Good Luck
