Samsung tv stoped working, it now wont power on, the red standby light dosent come on.

Hi, my samsung plasma 42" tv stoped working, it just blinked off yesterday and it now wont power on, the red standby light dosent come on even. This may be self evident but i was wondering if this is the power unit that has gone, i know its not the fuse in the plug, but i wanted to check to see what is wrong with it, if anyone can tell by my description, and if anyone would have a idea on how much it would cost to repair, its just outside its warenty sadly.

Yup I would tend to agree it's probably the PSU... It shouldn't be too expensive to fix, probably an hour or so labour and either parts OR a complete new PSU, in saying that ensure ya take it to a reputable service place.. and get a "quote" B4 allowing to continue.

My 55" plasma Samsung tv model number PN51E450A1FXZA. The red power standby light is lite but when you hit the power button it blinks and returns to a solid red with no picture or sound

These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

Sony pfm 42 v1 plasma. the switch seems to have stope working? Used to have a red light on standby & green when powered on. Now nothing at all

It might be the problem of your receiver (the one which is inside the television). Check whether it is working and if not get it replaced.
