Reconnect the power cable and try to turn it on again. if that Doesnt work then disconnect the monitor from computer but let it connected to the power source,if it shows any message like "No video", "Input signal" or any thing related to video or signal then your monitor is working fine it could be the issue with you computer.

Samsung UN55B7000WF RED LIGHT FLASHES CLCIKING SOUND BACKLIGHT FLASHES


Hi Ab7775,

1. Pl check st by 5 or 3.5 volts.

2. If it is ok, check power on 5 or 3.5 volts. Is power on voltage stable ? If this is pulsating with cliking sound, it is the main board. Otherwise it should be the power supply.

3. Please also check all the other voltage for short with ground.

You can also check the power supply board separately. Remove the connector going to main board. Put a 1k res between st by and power on pin. Plug in the ac, if all the voltage appear, your power supply is ok.

I am on line if possible please do this checking and let me know the result.

Good luck.

My Emerson LE320EM3 tv wont turn on, it has not flashing lights and only makes a high pitched frequency when plugged in.


Fault to the main power supply regulator section. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.

It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

I have a insignia tv thats the screen is no good but i want to save the led back lights but i dont know how much power is needed to run just the back lights NS-39D310NA15 Rev.B


You'll need the LED driver circuits to operate the LEDs outside of the TV. Sometimes they reside on the main board or the power supply board. Some models have a separate board. Follow the wires from the LEDs back to see which one you have.

Why does it turn from blue to black after 10 sec.?


Back - light problem. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis.

To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced.

I just repaired this identical problem on the same model TV. You have a bad power supply (also known as an SMPS). The board is model FSP271-4F02, and is about $75. Unlike the main board for this TV, you can find the power board relatively easily. Try shopjimmy, for example. Replacing the board isn't too difficult if you have a reasonable mechanical ability, have some tools, and are careful.

TV won't turn on


the first thing that you need to do is to open the back cover of your tv.Go to the power supply section it is separate board where the power cord is connected.Using a multitester,plug in the power cord and measure for the output supply.see if the 5vdc ,12vdc and 24vdc are present..if one of this output is missing,replace the power supply board But if the output voltage are complete,replace the inverter board,It is a board that supplies the high voltage to the backlights of your monitor/screen....You can also try to reset the system of your tv by pressing the the small switch mounted on the main board press it twice while the power is on...tnx and good luck!

Tube turns on nothing else does


If the Tv turns on (power supply is ok), screen lights up (inverters are ok) but don't get a blue screen, menu options, source options, or audio, it's most likely the main board (aka Motherboard) is faulty. If a DVD player is hooked upto the TV, check whether you can get audio from that (change the source using remote), in such a case it could be a problem with LCD Interface board. My $3 is on faulty Main board.
