Samsung TV model LN32A450C1DXZA, after turning the TV on it will turn itself off shortly after and then turn itself back on shortly thereafter. Then it repeats that several times before staying on.

Hi there,

If the tv is still under warranty, this can be repaired at no charge.

However, if not under warranty, you will need to have the CAPACITORS on the main power supply circuit board tested (or replaced).

The capacitors responsible for the power supply can sometimes fail - open the back panel. If the capacitors on the main power supply board look too fat, or signs of burning near the solder joints, then you've found the problem.

Hope this helps.

TV turns on then off no picture

this is very common. it is the power supply going bad. it should run at 130 volts dc. but it is now running much lower that this. just enought for the tv to come on. but not enough to power all the circuits right.

Powers off by itself

Hello Sddyardman this problem is coming from the high voltage circuit either from the flyback transformer which can be faulty, the horizontal output transistor or the hv bleeder which can also cause this problem, this is not an expensive repair it is pretty common with projection tv sets after about 5 years or so what i recommend to have a tech come out and service your tv set since this has to do with the high voltage circuit thank you hope this helps.

5 blinks, Sony KP-65WS500 stays up only with one CRT gun at a time....

5 times blinks shows White Balance error in tv. You need to adjust Screen Volts (G2) and problem will resolve. Screen volts controls located at Focus Block as shown in below picture.

TV turns on, but it turns right back off

Your lamp has went bad and you need to replace it. If you look on the left side of your tv there is a sticker that has a lamp part number on it. You can order that from part and you will be back up and running.
