    I'm not sure, but I don't think that is the issue. I am leaning more towards a lamp issue. I can see a picture, but it is very faint and dark. Could it be the lamp?

If there is a faint picture it could be an issue with the back light. It can be the ballast or the actual backlight or both. The ballast would be the piece before the back light. If there is power given by the ballast then there is an issue with the back light. If there is non have the ballast tested it may need replacing. While at it check if there are leaking capacitors or loose solders that may also cause the problem. These parts are hard to find spare parts for a tv because these are replaced by service centers.

Hi,

The TV is on protect mode.

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

Also ensure that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending bad signal, check if you get same problem with no receiver box or dvd connected.

If that does not work, and you keep having a flashing led on front of the TV, and tv turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible reasons.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , startingthe flashing light.


If you are in situation one, then theTV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

Common faults that can occur are a blown capacitor on power board, a convergence IC has blown, or a fault on Digital board.

Check also the video cable or any external connection cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing state because of the video cable.


If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.
Thanks for contacting Fixya

Need new screen


Based on the model and brand either look to Samsung (may no longer be available because of age) or GOOGLE screen replacement as there are several sites selling replacement screens for the older sets---note most are actually two screens and a few have a third which is clear with anti-glare and some only sell the screens as a set.
