Question about Samsung PN60E6500 60-inch 3D Plasma TV

Open Question

Hello, I have a Samsung PN60E6500 that has been cycling & 5 LED blinking last 6 months. Does it every couple of weeks and works again after unplugging for awhile. I've listed my testing in detail. Thx

Issue started 6 months ago. TV has always been connected to a good surge/filter protector. It has shut off a few minutes into operating and then come back on. Is has also shut off a few minutes into operation and stayed off, until unplugged for awhile. Is has shut off as soon as it was turned on and will not turn back on until unplugged for awhile. Have always got it to work again, it is currently working now. Issue happen every couple of weeks. All Voltages at the test points are correct to the voltage label. All capacitors look perfect. All other components look perfect. Some buzzing from the X-board inductors (I believe, don't want my ear to close...). Disconnecting the Y-board from the X-board during cycling does not fix issue. Disconnecting X-board from Power board during cycling does fix issue. Is issue more likely the Power Board or the X-board? Are there any components I could replace on either board which I should try first before replacing a Board itself? Any other test points or tests in general which should be done first before replacing components or boards? Thank you

SOURCE: my samsung LNT4066F keeps flickering when I turn the tv on

you might want to call Samsung as if picture flickering especially on scene changes etc several models have a issue where a jumper needs to be removed on the power board that causes this==I think your model is one of them--a little design flaw.

SOURCE: Samsung TV goes Black but keeps sound

you will need to check weather the 24vdc supply for the inverter board is good no drop voltage. if no supply check the power supply board. then you should check if their is a inv_on signal at the power inverter board around 3v-4.4vdc . if goes out during power on tried to disconnect the supply going to the inverter board to ensure if their is a shorted parts in the inverter board. if the inverter_on signal also goes out even with out inverter board connected that was mean you have problem in the processor board.

Have you tried replacing the power cord or the voltage feed may be off replacing the whole cord should correct that

Testimonial: "If all the voltages are correct except the one on the VE, how can changing the power cord make a difference? The VA and VS on the power board are perfect."

SOURCE: Controls not working on Samsung TV. No remote, no TV side either

Fault at its main digital board again. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.

In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.
Before going further; try a hard reset first. If it does not help you, replace the main digital board. There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; visit the site linked here.
Just replace its SMPS board [Power supply board] too along with the main board. A faulty power supply board will make the main digital board too bad.

Testimonial: "I replaced the power supply board the last time I replaced the main board. Same thing happened after a month. I'm wondering if there is some faulty wiring or something in the tv itself causing the boards to short."

Why won't my tv turn on?


Power supply problem most likely, you might have to open it up and check the power supply, if you don't know what that is, then take it to a repair shop. Check for bulging caps, and replace them. with the same corresponding caps. Good Luck

Low water level


I have a Samsung DMT400RHS and I started getting the low water level error ('Normal'+Heavy'+Smart Auto' LED blinking). The error started intermittently a few weeks ago, but the the last day or two the problem was solid, and simply restarting the cycle no longer worked.
I looked of the code in the dishwasher user guide and it said 'low water level.' Searched the internet and located the repair manual at tradebit.com for $15. The manual was well worth the $15.
The manual suggested: 1) loose level sensor connector 2) Faulty Assy case sensor or stuck floater aka 'remove foreign matter' 3) Bad Main PBA assy.
Since we do 10+ loads a week for the last 18 months the stuck floater seemed to be the most likely cause.
Go to Samsung DMT400RHS Low Water Level Error ('Normal'+Heavy'+Smart Auto' LED) (new link is https://photos.google.com/album/AF1QipNtp1neOR7icVG8cSs71bLpxQD5k_xljiWcJD2P click the i on each picture to see the caption - DM 04/17/2016) to see the pictures and read the captions documenting what I did. Do this at your own risk. You must turn off and disconnect the electric power and turn off the water supply before you begin.

Samsung CLP-315 color laser printer Haven't used it for a couple months. Tried last night, got "system error" message. It said to cycle power. Tried that 5 times alst night, no joy. Left...


When you cycled the power, did you just push the power button?

If so, to really do a power cycle you need to unplug, let sit off for 30 seconds, then plug back in.

Philips 42PF7220A/37B shuts after 10-15 min. LED Blinks 5 times


I had the Same issue. on a 50PF9431D/37 set. Many Plasma Set's use a LJ44-00118A PS-505-PH Power supply from Samsung. Known to have this common problem. If you can, or have a friend that can Solder components?. Unplug your set remove the back panel & locate your power supply. It will be the PCB in the center of the set just above the Video/Audio connections. http://www.shopjimmy.com/power-supply-unit-lj44-00118a-from-philips-50mf231d-40.htm. Is a Link to a photo of the PCB. Make a note of the locations of all cable connections then unplug them all. Un-install PCB, Check all Fuse first. I believe their is 5 or 6 of them on the PCB. Then replace the two 3300uf 10v 105C Radial capacitors at C8060 & C8059. Look to see if the Caps are deformed and or split at the top. The location of the caps are in the Lower bottom edge of the PCB. A local shop may Carrie them if not, digi-key has them. Part # http://search.digikey.com/scripts/DkSearch/dksus.dll?Detail&name=493-1754-ND. Total cost was $7 with S/H.
