Question about Televison & Video
Hi we have a Samsung 52in TV (model No: LE52M87BD),Whenever we press the on button at the front of the tv, the tv clicks for about 10 minutes and the red light flashes before the TV finally turns on, this also happens when we turn the tv on from the remote control. It has 2 scart lead outlets at the back and we have moved them around a fair bit between using the DVD & Wii as well as having Sky permanently plugged in. We recently bought a Scart lead box so all the scart leads can stay in all the time. Could this have caused the problem with the delay of the tv coming on? The TV is only 17 months old. Please help. Many Thanks.
Scart leads or scart adapter would never cause such problems. The problem will be in the TV itself. You need to check the power-supply unit at the main-boar. First look for visible cracks at the other side of the board, then you might need to check all the low voltage capacitors at the power unit. In most cases 100

µFx16V located just next to IC causes such a problem. Only one TV out of 430 had actually defective IC itself, and TV was stil working after 6.26mins. So in your case I'd check low voltage part of the power unit.
