    I have the same T.V, same exact problem. It's obvious that this is a common problem, but some people are keeping a tight wrap on the solution. It has come to the point where my T.V doesn't even turn on anymore, just does the clicking sound and the LED light flashes 4x's. I've only had the T.V for about 1 year and 3 months, I'm thinking of purchasing another one, and even though i like Samsungs' designs, I think i'll go another route next time.(maybe Sony) This T.V has made me a non believer in Samsung.

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.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device, in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.

SOURCE: TV works fine for about 3 minutes then the picture

The light is blinking a code. The code will be a series of blinks, a pause and the blinks again. Phone Sony service and give them this code. They will be able to advise you as to the problem.

I NEED T.V CODES FOR A ADMIRAL T.V AND NEED STEPS ON HOW TO SET UP CODE FOR A INNOVAGE REMOTE


Hello
Code for Admiral TV with Innovage remote control are:
001,173

CODE INPUT SETTING:

You will need the list of codes to manually select and input the correct codes to your

specific device.

1. Turn on the device that you want to set.

2. Look for the brand name under the specific device listing provided.

3. Aim the remote control at the device and press down and hold CODE SEARCH button for

at least 3 seconds until the red LED lights up solid red.

4. Press the device button for the item you wish to program, e.g. TV, DVD, VCR, etc. and the

LED light will blink once and then remain solid red.

5. Using the number keys, enter the 1 st set of 3-digit codes from the list. You will notice

that each number that you press, the LED will blink once. After you have entered the

3rd digit, the red LED will turn off indicating that the code was recognized for the device.

(NOTE: If the code entered was not compatible, the red LED will flash several times.

You will then need to repeat Step 3. You have 30 seconds to enter a code.)

6. After the red LED light has turned off. Press the ON/OFF key. If the device you are trying

to program powers off, then you have found the correct code. If the device does not

power off, then you will need to repeat the process again from Step 3, using another

3-digit code.
7. Make a note of the 3-digit code for future use.

CODE SEARCH SETTING:

This is an alternative method to programming your device without using the code list. The

remote control will scroll through the list of codes to identify the correct code for your

device.

1. Turn on the device that you want to set.

2. Aim the remote control at the device and press and hold down the CODE SEARCH button

for at least 3 seconds until the red LED lights up solid red.

3. Press the device button for the item you wish to program, e.g. TV, DVD, VCR, etc. and the

LED light will blink once and then remain solid red.

4. Press ON/OFF button on remote slowly and repeatedly until the device you are trying to

program shuts off. (Note LED will blink once each time you press ON/OFF button)
5. Once this occurs, press ENTER button to store the code and the LED light will turn off

I have an innovage jumbo remote did not loose it!!! LOST THE DIRECTIONS TO PROGRAM IT.


You can program the Innovage Jumbo Remote by entering three digit codes, or by using the auto-search function.

To program your remote by entering a code, follow these steps:

  1. Turn on your TV.
  2. Press and hold the CODE SEARCH button for at least 3 seconds until the red LED lights up and stays lit.
  3. Press the TV button on the remote so that the LED blinks once and then remains solid red.
  4. Enter the first set of 3-digit codes from the list. The LED will blink once every keypress. After the 3rd digit, the red LED will turn off indicating that the code was recognized for the device. If the code was not compatible, the LED will flash several times and you need to return to step 2 to try that code again or to try the next code in the list.
  5. After the LED has turned off, aim the remote at the TV and press ON/OFF. If the device turns off, you have used the correct code and the remote was successfully programed. If the device does not power off, return to step 2 and try again with the next code in the list.
To have the remote try each TV code it knows one at a time, follow these steps:
  1. Turn on your TV.
  2. Press and hold the CODE SEARCH button for at least 3 seconds until the red LED lights up and stays lit.
  3. Press the TV button on the remote so that the LED blinks once and then remains solid red.
  4. Press the ON/OFF button slowly and repeatedly until the TV turns off. The LED will blink once each time you press the ON/OFF button.
  5. Once the TV turns off, press the ENTER button to store the code and the LED will turn off.
To program the remote for your VCR, repeat this process starting with turning the VCR on, then follow the steps substituting the VCR button for the TV button.

I hope that helps.

My Samsung LNS4041DX has a hard time trying to turn on. The red led light blinks a couple times and around 2 or 3 minutes later, it finally comes on?


Replace the 4 Capacitors on the power supply board that are buldged up they are on the top right corner of the board where the ribbon jumps from the power board to the main board with ones from Jameco Part Number 606521 they worke perfect but make sure you put them in with the correct polarity easy to do just keep an eye on it. Very simple repair and took me about 30 min to take itapart solder on the new ones and put it back together all for under $10.

Samsung model LNS4051DX/XAA won't turn on, just clicks


THE PROBLEM IS Faulty parts on PS board , bad press for Samsung

Because the Samsung LNS4051D would not turn on and the power LED would blink 4 times and the relay would click and this would repeat again and again. I replaced power supply board parts CM806, 811, 812 & 817, all 1000 uf 10v capacitors, three had their tops bulged up slightly that I missed on initial visual inspection. After seeing the reports of problems with these caps on http://www.fixya.com/support/t1336881-will_not_turn_or_off , I replaced them with Radio Shack part 272-1032, 1000 uf, 35v. They are slightly bigger, but fit OK. TV is working fine now. Cost was 4 x $1.59 = $6.36 plus the time. I saved between $100 to 300 in the process of either replacing the board or getting the unit serviced.
