Question about Samsung LN-T4061F 40 in. LCD HDTV
Power button on the remote works fine. Power button on the side of the TV set no longer does anything when pressed. Originally the power button worked to turn the TV on and off. Over time, when this button was pressed while the tv was on, the tv reacted as if the Source (input) button was pressed! The other buttons on the side of the TV work fine, and all the remote buttons work fine. just this one button... I don't believe i ever exposed it to liquid/water. Nor has it been dropped. Thanks
You can easially just replace the button assembly with included circuit board just unplug your old and plug in the replacement. They are very inexpensive and you can get them for most models at www.tvrepairworld.com

it has something to do with the key pad assembly, i guess the source button may be sticking in. Has the key pad board been disconnected?

SOURCE: Samsung 40" LCD Built in
Samsung sold thousands of big screens with a power capacitor issue--they have issued extensions of warranties on many models covering free in-home repairs by licensed regional technicians (sometimes not where you bought the TV). I know this one--at first, the TV would just behave this way maybe twice, then stay on...later, as the problem advanced, three, four, then five, and on, until finally it would keep cycling off and on until it completely stopped working. When my girlfriends' 46" LCD Samsung finally quit, we called Best Buy, who told us to call Samsung, who then did send a technician from about 60 miles away--he had the little capacitor replaced, and the TV working, within minutes. I asked him how they could afford to do this, and he informed me that he makes runs of these jobs, scheduling perhaps a dozen in one day. So, it's chronic, yes, and they're aware of it, and fixing it--hopefully still for free! So, I'd call my dealer, see if you have to call Samsung, then if you do, then call 'em--they should still be sending out the cavalry for this issue--they caused it by using cheap, poor-quality capacitors (the replacements are 'new and improved', and we've never had an issue since).
