Turning on and off constantly

    Similar problem to others with Switching off, then automatically switching on again. The problem appears much worse when source is set to AV. When HDMI source is selected it can go all night without a problem. As soon as I hit the source button, it turns off, then back on, on a very regular basis, like every few minutes

    Does AV require more power to run, than HDMI?

    I haven't added any new components, the ventilation hasn't changed since I've had this unit, which is about 3.5 years, and its only started happening about 3 months ago.

    Would love to know if anyone has had a successful fix, and how much?

    My TV will randomly shut off but unlike stikum's it doesn't come right back on. Happens in all modes.

It seems to be that the tv is recycling, this issue is common when there's a defective ballast.
You could replace the ballast first and it's most probable you issue will be solved :)

Hi, My SAMSUNG LE40R88BDX/XEU LCD 40'', isnt working! When you turn the TV on it sounds like someone is constantly turning it on and off with the remote, as its making a constant switching on and off...

It sounds like the power supply board has some bad capacitors that need to be replaced. Samsung is covering the cost to repair this problem on some models. You can call 1-800-samsung to find out if your unit is covered.
