My TC-L26X1 has no picture. Always worked perfectly, was turned off for a week while my son was away, never came back on. The power light comes on (red in front) and the digital audio out lights up red but that is it. I cannot select inputs and nothing happens. Any idea where to start? This is way out of warranty so I would like to repair this, just no idea where to start. Thanks!

My son once dropped our tablet and everything became fluted. I took the tablet to Samsung but having been overseas and the tablet was purchased in America they could not fix it as the parts needed could not be obtained.
I had 2 options. I could either throw it away and lose all my files or try to fix following an intensive Google search. I chose the latter.
I found a YouTube video in which the man walks you step by step in taking it apart and repairing several issues. Once I had the back removed, I found several 5pin wires in which they were all aligned perfectly with the exception of one. I carefully pushed it so that it became aligned, turned it on... and had a perfectly working tablet again. I am not sure if its safe for you to do this as I have always read the warning labels advising to never remove the back so not to be electro shocked but it might be worth you doing some research and seeing if its possible.
There's a good chance you have failing electrolytic capacitors either in the power section or the inverter section or both. In your case I'd concentrate on the power input board. Any caps in these sections that look bulged at the top, or bulged/leaking at the bottom need to be replaced. If you repeatedly turn it off and on, eventually it'll probably stay on, but every time you turn it off, the TV will get harder and harder to start up until one day it just won't. Sometimes you have to do the opposite to start it up and unplug it for some time and then try again.
If you aren't tech savvy, don't worry, read the rest of this solution and watch the videos.
If you are handy with a soldering iron and can identify the power supply and inverter / FM section for the backlights, an inexpensive handful of capacitors will likely fix you right up. Match the capacitance on the capacitors. Go over voltage if you can, and still have them fit. IE - it's not a bad idea to replace a 10V cap with a 16V or 25V or even a 50V, but don't replace a 680uF cap with a 500uF or a 1000uF (unless you are positive it's only doing ripple filtering, and even then, you should go OVER, not under the uF rating).
Most of the caps that go are 10V 1000uF or 3300uF.
I found some great videos of the procedure (for many Samsungs with the same issue) on youtube.
those setting are adjustable so you can adjust to your personal preferance but reset back to factory or dynamic is good but i would suggest you play with the settings to your taste put on a newws show and asjust the briteness and contrast so you can see the seperation of a mans lapel color to just below half tint in the middle fase tone so people look naterial
This is DVD MIKE with Perfectimagess.Try this first .Unplug the TV for a while and press the On/Off button which is supposed to perform a "reset".After that, plug the TV back in. It should come on and the Timer light off. The picture and colors might be distorted, but pressing the Perfect Focus button on the remote control resolves this right away.
The problems is a black picture or the TV won't turn on. The Timer light stays lit even though no Timer has ever been set. The colors converge and the picture is pinched. I don't think all of the expensive repairs are necessary, My TV did go out after a week of non-use while out of town (I was out of town, not the TV). I don't know. I'll post more if I learn more. I hope this helps Wade,
Vacuum the dust off of the circuit boards and inside the cavity. TAKE CLOSE UP PICTURES OF THE CONNECTORS BEFORE DISCONNECTING FROM THE CIRCUIT BOARDS. (IF YOU HAVE TO.) TAKE OUT CIRCUIT BOARD MOUNTING SCREWS. AND REMOVE THE BOARDS.
VACUUM THE DUST. LOOK- SMELL AND CLEAN THE GROUNDS, AND CAREFULLY CLEAN THE BOARDS. ASSEMBLE. DOUBLE CHECK CONNECTIONS WITH PHOTOS, AND PLUG IN, TURN ON AND HOPEFULLY ITS ALL GOOD.
