    lightnbaby is exactly right except the repair is more like $ 380.00 here in Virginia, if you have to pay. In my case Samsung extended the warrantee by 6 months and I squeaked in by 2 days. Bad capacitors (2ea.) are "puffed up" or tops are domed. Replacing cured the problem completely.

Im writing this as a public service announcement. Im seeing more and more of these posts, and I thought I would let everone know my experience.

Samsung televisions (and a few other brands) built in mid to late 2007 had a bad batch of capacitors from China. Two of these 10 volt capacitors were installed on their power boards.

When these capacitors blow, they dont hold enough juce to turn the TV on. However they tend to blow slowly. People experiencing this problem, will see thier TV taking longer to turn on, Then it will cycle off and on a few times before finnaly turning on. And lastly, when the capacitors completely blow, the TV will not turn on at all.

The capacitors are cheap, about 50 cents each. People were origonally repairing these themselves because their sets are out of warranty. It is chepaer to solder in new capacitors, because a new power board costs around $150.

However as of Feburary 2010, Samsung has recognised this as a global problem to their sets. If you call 1-800-SAMSUNG, they will set up a service technitian to come to your house and solder in shiny new 25v capacitors. They will not charge you for this, even if your TV is out of warranty. Mine was 17 months old (well out of the 12 month standard warranty).

Its a cheap fix for Samsung, and much cheaper than buying a new TV.

I would suggest registering your TV on the samsung website if not allready, waiting a day, and then calling 1-800 samsung.

They should take care of it. They have a Service Level Agreement that you should have an appointment scheduled within 48 hours of your call. In fact. I called Samsung on a Sunday, and the technitian was there by monday morning (he had a free slot), so I was very pleased with my customer experience.

Stinks that it happend, but at least its being fixed.

I understand this to be a power supply problem. Mine just started doing it, and it is out of warranty--of course. I was told to expect the repair bill to be over $400. This is apparently common with this unit, but Samsung hasd not offered a recall.

What can cause my samsung 46 inch smart tv to turn on and off


Sounds like main board fault. Contact any service technician. These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

Ageing capacitors usually causes this sort of problem. They change value going low capacity etc. A replacement flourecent display board may likely fix it as the display is taking too long to come on.

Samsung model LNT5271f excessive relay cycling before full power


Howdy,
Yes, it is very easy to repair. Solder iron wattage should be at least 300 w.

The PSB is the center Board (towards left) after you remove the back off the TV. Remove the shield that covers the Boards and remove Board from TV with the 6-7 screws. Replace capacitors CM852 & CM853; 2200ufd 25volts.
