Samsung Model No. WS-32Z316V Flickers, blinks in and out then turns off

This TV (2004 bought) when i turned it on from the sets button (because remote became difficult to use), used to blink 3-4 times for some years and then run perfectly. Now it blinks continuously and after a minute or so it goes to stand by. I turn it on again and blinks again until another stand by. I dont think there is interferense or something else outside the box. Has it happen to more people and what can be the problem?

Those blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.

SOURCE: have mitsu model # ws-65813 wont turn on

You have a common problem in the DM (Digital Module), more specifically the DM power supply. There are four electrolytic caps in that supply 16v/1000uf that are bad and likely buldged from heat stress. Replacing these caps and the E2P module, a small stand-up board further back on the main DM board should restore normal operation...
You might be lucky enough to have a tech come out and simply replace those caps in-home. It's not a really big job for a qualified tech.
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: NO PICTURE, NO SOUND, TV TURNS ON THEN TURNS OFF

STOP THE PRESS!! I FIXED MY TV for a whopping $26.

I took a wild shot and purchased two STK392-110 convergence amplifiers from http://www.electronix.com/. They ship fast, placed my order on Tuesday evening after coming here and placing my comment. To my suprise the parts were in my mailbox on Friday. The parts were actually $12 but I also picked up a iron and a solder sucker.

So rarewish4us, If you're in the South Florida area I'd be more than happy to take that "JUNK" off your hands. LOL
If I were you, I'd give it a shot before you junk it.


Good luck,
Howie

SOURCE: why is my TV blinking?

The power supply or there is a fault in the display drive circuit areas.

The set would have to be troubleshooted by an experienced tech who is familiar with your set, and has the service manuals for it.

Most likely the tech will end up doing some board changes to fix the set.

Considering the age of the set and the fact of investing money in to it, I would retire the set and seriously start shopping for a new one.

I need the steps to program the urc4021 remote, as well as the code for the sanyo tv


To program the One-For-All URC4021, first turn on the TV manually (or with the original remote). Press the TV button on the URC4021 once. Then press and hold the Set button until the LED blinks twice. Now you can enter a code directly and test it. For Sanyo TVs, the only programmed code is 0154 . If the LED blinks twice, press Power to attempt to turn off the TV. If that works, you can turn the TV on again and test if the other buttons on the remote work with your TV. If the LED doesn't blink twice, repeat the steps from pressing and holding Set. (If you wait too long before entering the code, the remote will leave the programming mode.)

The URC4021 has a code search mode. Press and hold Set until the LED blinks twice, then press 9 9 1 . If the LED blinks twice again, alternate between pressing the Power and TV buttons until the TV turns off. Then press Set to lock in that code and test the remote again.

I hope this helps.

Cindy Wells
(Note: if your TV is newer than the remote or released within 6 months of the remote being programmed, this code may not work. The URC4021 documentation gives March, 2004 as the copyright date. That suggests that the codes may not work with devices built in 2004 or later.)

I have a Mitsubishi rear projection TV (WS-73909) that didn't turn on and had a green blinking light. I replaced the 7 DM capacitors and now it turns on. Both the remote and front control panel ca


Let me know as I can look for this---the set has a keyboard lockout that is cleared by holding the menu or another front button for more than 5-10 seconds with set on---I can find the service manual and check if needed.

TV Doesn't Function: Can turn on, but no menu or input recognition


the set like all has a hard reset which requires a four digit number code and the original Mitsubishi remote---sets almost everything in the set back to original except convergence.


also, don't buy any TV or electronics on CL as people dump their problems on someone else..

WS-5551 only on/off button works, won't respond to remote at all


take off the speaker grill, you will see 2 wire plugs, turn the tv on, disconnect both plugs, if it now works with the remote then you need to replace all of the front switches, or leave them unplugged and use the remote, if this doesn't work, you have a bad dm board or signal module which could get very expensive.

UNPLUG TV AND THEN PLUG BACK IN---TURN ON---GREEN POWER LIGHT COMES ON FOR A MOMENT AND GOES OFF.

PRESS AND HOLD “device” and “menu” buttons on front of tv for at least 5 seconds and then release both together.


Watch for power light to blink in a sequence:

1 blink-then 2 blinks-------no error

2 blink-then 1 blink-------X-ray protection

2 blink-then 2 blink-------SHORT PROTECTION*******

2 blink-then 3 blink---------deflection circuit problem

2 blink-then 4 blink---------vertical circuit problem


******2, then 2 is most common---usually means one of the fuses that protect the Convergence IC or IC’s is blown---set will detect no voltage to convergence IC and shut down.


SET WILL REPEAT BLINK ERROR CODE UP TO 5 TIMES AND THEN TO GET IT TO REPEAT MORE YOU HAVE TO UNPLUG SET AND TRY TO TURN ON AGAIN.


IF IT IS 2 AND THEN 2---USUALLY

Tv blinks out when front buttons are pushed. model#ws-65511


If the TV is turning on and working regularly, but power button does not shut down and buttons on TV do not work, then it is a faulty touch control (button) board on TV.

If instead the TV does not even turn on, then tv is on protection mode, in that case it can be any internal fault.

If instead the problem is with remote buttons, then it is either a faulty remote or a faulty IR sensor.

The constant blinking green light means that the TV is not booting up. This is a common problem on this set.You need to remove the shield from the DM board (standing upright on the left where the DTV RF connector is)and inside you will see the four leaky capacitors (1000 MFD 16 VOLT)replace them,plug the TV in and wait 70 seconds for the blinking light to stop,then turn on the TV.The hard part will be removing the board from the TV(lots of screws and connectors,takes time)
