Question about Samsung TXM3297HF 32" TV

1 Answer

Samsung TXM3297HF shuts off after 2 or 3 seconds

I turn on the TV, the power light blinks (In a varying order, I surmize it is trying to tell me an error code. But I have no way of telling what it is) and the unit shuts off. I get sound but no picture.

    I difficult to tell, but from what I think happens:

    This is after the power-on melody:

    On - 2 seconds
    Off - Split second
    On - 2 seconds
    Off - Split second
    On - 3 seconds
    Off - Split second
    And then the solid on light that is there when the unit is plugged in. This is a CRT if that makes any difference. Is there a chart somewhere of all the blinking light codes for my unit?

Usually means your TV's lamp needs to be replaced. I'd need to know the sequence of blinking to really determine this.

When you turn on power you hear a click and the green light turns on. Three seconds later you hear another click and the green light turns off.


MOST OF THESE SETS HAVE A SELF DIAGNOSTIC:

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

PRESS AND HOLD "device"(input) and"menu" buttons on front of tv for at least 5 seconds and then release bothtogether.


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 protectthe Convergence IC or IC's is blown---set will detect no voltage to convergenceIC and shut down.


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


IF IT IS 2 AND THEN 2---USUALLY
CONVERGENCE CIRCUIT PROBLEM

let me know what you find--hope that you find 2 blinks, a pause and twoblinks--this is the most common and easiest to fix.

Let me know what you find and I will assist you.

It sounds like you have a blown fuse on the circuit board.The only way to tell is to take it apart,with the power off of course

Where is the lamp door cover located


Hi, there is no lamp door and it doesnt have a lamp neither since your tv is a CRT (Cathodic Ray Tube), only DLP's and LCD Projection TV's, For this issue you will really need to consult it with a Repair Center, CRT's are very frindly to fix, and it could be a issue on a small component if it is it will be very cheap to fix.
