    Ok, I found the fix on here for another SAMSUNG model, but it worked here too.

    Hook up all the cables, then plug it in. Turn it on using the remote (put brand new batteries in). Get it to start clicking and the red led starts blinking, let it sit overnight trying to turn on. The next day it should turn on fine, you may need to unplug it once or twice before it works.

Motherboard red light stay on and computer won't turn on. Any ideas on what the promblem might be?

First try shutting down you're system. Than turn the PS off at the rocker switch (Back of PS). Ground you're self by touching the the PS. Remove you're memory and re-seat it. Than boot the system.
Check the standby LED. See if it lights green.
Pull the cmos battery and check its voltage. Anything under 2.4 volts replace the battery. Normally the MB LED displays green. (Standby power).
This means the MB is maintaining / charging the cmos battery. If the battery can no longer maintain charge this will cause the MB LED to turn Red. Built into the mother board is a small switch. When the system is shut down the MB maintains power to the cmos. If the standby switch fails to function correctly the LED will turn Red. Lets hope the problem is the cmos battery. The internal switch can not be repaired.

My box wont turn on theres just a red light

if you have tried it in another room and it still wont come on, some of the receivers have a detachable power cord on the back, check to make sure that is in tight. otherwise the box has gone bad and nothing you can do about it.

Receiver will not respond from imputs from the TS160 remote

You are probably using a non-oem remote or one that is from another receiver, not the one that originaly came with the unit.

You should try to get one with the factory remote and not try to save a few bucks.

Maybe a neighbor has complete unit you could get for a reasonable price.

Pulsating power LED. No picture. No sound

Either the main smoothing capacitor or the voltage regulator are faulty. You may find that the power LED will stay on after pulsating for several minutes, at which time you can switch the TV on.
