Re: power cylcles off and on

I have the same model - Removing the cover so far fixed it for me but I'm not sure why. It was powering on and off every 15-30 seconds so not a heat issue but with cover off it seems to be fine. Caps all looks fine. Grounding issue maybe??

Re: power cylcles off and on

All you need to do is remove the back cover, then remove the metal cover that covered the power supply. Watch tv w/o cover, it won't shut down again. Try it and post here if it works.

My tv picture goes off and a Samsung icon goes up and down on screen, while still hearing the sound. It is happening frequently now, every 10-15min. Pressing any key on remote brings picture back.

Back - light problem. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis.....
To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced. To some models of sets, all these section circuit will be integrated at its main board. If this is the case, you have to replace the main board.

Replaced the 4 power capacitors now tv runs for 15min. then picture turns black and volume stays on

when the picture goes black, dim the light in the room and shine a bright flashlight on the screen. If you see a faint picture, you have a backlight problem. If this issue came about after you installed the capacitors, double check the installation of your caps. Ensure that you don't have cold solder joints or broken joints!

Sanyo DP26649 screen blacks out and sound becomes loud static

Most likely you will need to get a diagnoses performed on the set. Your problem could be with either the main board or power supply board. The million dollar question is do you repair or replace? With parts and labor to repair this set, you could come out cheaper replacing it.

Buzzing Noise

It really sounds like your power supply is having problems with heat and not enough cooling inside your tv. You should if you can take the back cover off, also, and blow out all the lint and dust that has been drawn into the tv over time. Usually a couple of years is enough to build up dust and lint that can cause tiny static discharges inside your set. If there is a way of keeping your set cooler by placing it in a different position where there is sufficient room for air to circulate without restriction around it, that would help as well. The power supply the one with the power cord going to it from the inside should be your culprit. Good luck and God bless.

Hello Sir,
I hope your tv is the power problem or the main board.
But if this the back light problem then you don't need to repair your tv just sale as part (cause this back light part is hard to find and the cost is high).
You need to sent this tv for inspection. any question call me at 323-767-6030
