Question about Samsung LN40B500 40 40" HDTV LCD TV
Tv is faulty and need for repair
Posted on Dec 28, 2014
I experienced a similar situation.Purchased a side button PCB assembly BN9607269A for ~ $10.00 delivered from
Here were my symptoms:
A. Plug in the TV and it turns on without pushing side On Button or Remote Power Button. (I even removed the remote batteries to be sure)
B. Bottom right Red LED constantly blinking without any input.
C. Volume Maxed out and couldn\'t be lowered with remote or side button.
D. Menu picture selections would all Max out or go to the final choice. With some Side button manipulation using the menu and channel selection buttons, I could temporarily disrupt the constant menu cycling.
Good Luck and be safe; don\'t work on energized equipment.

SOURCE: Samsung LN-R408D - No Picture
My Mom's LNR408D also had sound but no picture. I was able to fix it by soldering in a jumper wire across a blown (1.5A ???) SMD picofuse on the "T-Con" board.
Consider attempting this ONLY if you: 0) Know enough to avoid the potentially fatal High Voltage parts of the power supply board!!!
1) Are a fearless hackazoid 2) know what you're doing with a soldering iron and teensie SMD parts 3) are gonna throw the busted thing out anyway so you have nothing to lose and won't be sad if you screw something up.
4) Know enough to avoid the potentially FATAL High Voltage parts of the power supply board!!!!!
This board is at the top center under a close fitting RF shield. The suspect part was labeled "CP" on the board and marked with "P" on the part. It is visible above the right-center of the connector from the main board. An ohmmeter showed it as open, so I bypassed it with a jumper wire from connector VIN to the hot side of C13. One image shows the suspect part and the jumper in place.
The other shows the TCON board placement top-center (under its RF shield). With care, it seems possible to test the fuse and put the jumper in place without removing the shield. (Obviously don't touch anything else with the VOM leads!)
Thanks to ZORBUS and Steve's TV and Electronics for the idea.

if you can do soldering work, replace two 1000uF10v bulging capacitor with 1000uF 16v or 25v in powersupply board. you will save $200.
