Power is no long working

My Samsung tv, about 10 years old, had been working perfectly fine until today. I plugged it into a surge protector, and now it won't turn on no matter where I plug it in. Is it worth trying to fix it, or should I just buy a new one?

My Samsung LN40C530 F1F just went out last night no power nothing I had it plugged into a surge protector, I tried an alternate power outlet I just purchased this TV last year July 10, 201.


Try without the surge protector.

Sometimes the power supplies go bad (could be your issue). Sometimes the back-lights go bad and it will seem like it is powering on (red light goes on/off) and you get audio but no picture.

You will be better off getting a new one rather than getting this one fixed. Unfortunately, sony and samsung are the best two brands. You can try calling Samsung to see what they will do for you (so close to your one-year warrantee).

Good luck.

There should be a surge release button on the surge protector to bring the protector back to normal (should be red in color) Some surge protection devices have this option so just check if your s has it. If that is not the case than I think that you might have blown a fuse in your TV.Might just have to open it up and change the fuse within with the same ratings, but please be careful because do have high voltages so get an experienced technician to do this for you.
Good Luck.

Please check if your surge protector is working properly now. There is possibility that the surge protector is blown off due to high voltage surge. Check if your surge protector has a reset switch which some of the surge protectors have. If the problem still persists then you have to call the technician to replace the safety fuse which is inside the TV. The cost will not be much. I will personally recommend that you change your TV as it has outlived its life being 10 yrs old.

All of a sudden none of the buttons work, we can't change any channels and it will only turn on. The TV is less than a year old, is plugged into a power strip (so there won't be a power surge), and was...


Not all power strips prevent power surge, only those that specify on their packaging or imprinted on them, that they are "surge protectors". Also, even these will have lost their surge protection once they have been hit either by lightning or a strong power surge. You would have to check with the manufacturer on how much of a hit they can withstand. Was there a thunderstorm in your area recently? Are you using a remote to try to change the channels? If so, try the buttons on the tv itself. Also try unplugging, waiting 15 or more seconds, plug it back in, directly to the wall socket. See if that resets it. If you still can't get it to change channels call the manufacturer of the tv, it may be a known problem and they may be able to help.

No power on Samsung TV after storm


Hello Zkarim,

I'm very sorry to hear about your unfortunate new's. I had the same problem in my own home maybe a week ago.

Basically if your power flickered on and off at anytime during this storm then there was a power surge that probably fried your TV.
* First check the power where the tv was plugged in. Is it a power strip or a surge protector ? Surge protectors typically have an on/off switch and a separate reset push button.

If it is a power strip then the tv fried because there was nothing to stop it from happening (not even the fuse). If it was plugged into a surge protector then it could be quiet a few years old and not as reliable or the surge was to powerful for the limit on the surge protector.

The only thing you can do personally is send it in for repair if it's under warranty, if it is not then you can have it looked at by an authorized repair technician in your area. Troubleshooting should be fairly low, and you will at least be able to find out your options once they find the defected part.

Thank you for choosing Fixya!

First thing I'd check is the powerbar. Did you plug the TV into the outlet direct? What caused the breaker to trip? If it was an overload by using too much current, there is a possibility that there is a loose connection in your house wiring causing arcing and the interiference lines you're seeing on the display. You may even want to try the set in a different outlet if the powerbar checks ok, and if the set then works fine, get an electrican ASAP!

This sounds like the common problem for this set. A bad connection in the sweep section or a bad flyback and a bad horizontal output transistor. Good Luck.
