TXM2796HF power up problem

Hi, I've been sleeping with this tv for about 4 years, meaning its usually on all night..It went off the other night and will not turn on with the remote or the switch on the set. There use to be a little red light near the power switch when it was off, that never illuminates anymore. Thought I heard some slight ticking noise from the rear of set. Any ideas would be appreciated. I'm not willing to spend over a hundered or so to fix.

Re: TXM2796HF power up problem

Sorry to tell ya bro if your not a tech you cant fix it. You have to have a multimeter, a soldering iron, and a new flyback transformer as well as a new horiz. output transistor. You also will need to know how to unsolder solid state electronics, without messing up the board. This set will not be worth sending to a repair shop. Dude, this set has lived out its expected life expectancy. 4 years for a Samsung TV set is a long , long time! Put this set to rest and go out and buy another inexpensive set, as thats what a samsung is. They are made to last 2 to 3 years , and thats it!

My tv has no sound or picture. It started last night, I went to turn it on and the red power light just blinked at me and nothing came on. I tried it again this morning and the same thing.

Lots of tvs after some years develop power supply problems, of this type, it may be capacitors drying out in the power supply, they usually swell up and deform a little. Cheap components but not a five mins fix.
not for a novice

I pressed the sleep button by accident and the pic and sound went off and the stand by/timer red light started blinking. what does it mean?

Depends on how many times it blinks,just count the blinks Example: if it blink 2 times then pauses and blink 5 times then the code would be 25 and so on

Once you have this code,please post it.

take your tv to technician who can check your power supply, if your power is coming on and off, than a problem is not as big. firstly let him check a ht of a supply constantly, your supply is cutting.

This TV has reached the end of its (short) life. Needs to be replaced.

You can try looking at what kind of TV it is, what model, and look at the manufacturer's web site, check for the manual, look up what it means when the green light flashes. Might be a code that means something but I think the TV is dead.

Turns on and immediately shuts off

check for sleep mode and whether the timer for sleep mode is on or not, if sleep mode is on lets say 30 min or 5 min , ur TV will turn off automatically after that much time

If you unplug the unit for an hour or overnight, it should go out of sleep mode. If this dosent work then its not in sleep mode and the set has a problem in the power supply or the sweep circuit. Sorry you should seek a pro to assist you in this repair. Good Luck
