This sounds like a very common issue.

If set is hard to turn on (takes several tries)but will eventually turn on here is what my guess would be.

Every set has a standby power supply that is running 7/24 if the set is plugged in and it supplies voltage to the remote circuit that turn on the main power supply for the tv and hence turn the set on.

This is an area where companies cut corners by using lower rated voltage caps. By this I mean Standby usually provides under 10 volts to trigger the set on----what they do is use filter caps rated at say 10 volts max in a circuit with 9 volts (example)=with the standby on all the time the filter caps (electrolytic caps) dry out and fail.

The problem usually begins where you have to turn set on or or two times and gradually gets worse--takes longer and more tries to get it to come up.

Once on it will stay on until turned off for a period of time.

The caps will begin to work better (regain some of the capacitance) as they get hot--hence one it is on it will seem ok.

The beauty of this problem is most of them happen when set is a year or two old (no warranty) and all you have to do is look at the top to locate bad ones.

They are generally black or blue and round and vary in --they have two connections each--a + for positive and a - for negative--not unlike a battery which in a way they are. The + and - are marked on top and bottom of most boards.

They are easy to replace and not expensive parts.

The tops are silver and metal looking with creases on top and if bad they will be puffed up on top---tops must be perfectly flat with no brown material leaking top or bottom.

If this is your problem once you id them (make a drawing) you can begin.

Here is the critical part---on each cap is also marked the value like 220uf 10 vdc---220 micro farad at 10 volts maximum.

If you find for example 6 puffed up and all are 10 vdc replace them with the same value capacitance (like the 220 uf) but go up to at least in this case (from 10 volts) to a 16 or higher rated voltage cap.

The only issue is when you go up in voltage rated value the cap is larger so sometimes there is an issue of physical space for the replacement on the board to fit them in.

The reason they cheapen these sets in this way is if 10 caps and you make 25,000 sets there is a considerable savings in parts cost.

They do not care as long as it lasts past the usual one year parts warranty.

I have taken the time to be long winded because this really sounds like it may be the problem you have.

See attached photo of a typical cap and if you have questions or need advice let me know. when turn on tv it turns off - 10_26_2012_5_00_32_pm.jpg

The only thing you can do is replace the Main Board, which will be about 1/2 of what you paid for the set. I don't recommend it.

Samsung TV model LN32A450C1DXZA, after turning the TV on it will turn itself off shortly after and then turn itself back on shortly thereafter. Then it repeats that several times before staying on.


Hi there,

If the tv is still under warranty, this can be repaired at no charge.

However, if not under warranty, you will need to have the CAPACITORS on the main power supply circuit board tested (or replaced).

The capacitors responsible for the power supply can sometimes fail - open the back panel. If the capacitors on the main power supply board look too fat, or signs of burning near the solder joints, then you've found the problem.

Hope this helps.


Cheers,

Scott

4 times blinking means Fan stopped, power is not supplied on Fan 1, Fan 2 Fan 3 and at Fan 4. Or Fan connector is not attached securely. Cleaning these fans by using a vacuum cleaner can also solve your problem. Sometimes these fans are clogged by dust.

Tv won't stay on


i have seen this before and it may be the front power button being stuck and when your remote turns it on the stuck button turns it back off again. I have an older mitsubishi that will not boot up right sometimes and i have to unplug it and plug it back in fot it to come on. I used to pick up broken tv and fix the power buton and resell them
