Hi there. i have the closest model, to LE-32B450C. Samsung LE-32C450. i guess..its europe model (im from greece). I bought the 32' TV a couple weeks back.. and now im messing with a shut down problem....

I have a few friends in the UK with the very same TV and no problem at all.
I would suspect either a power supply fault or a bad connection somewhere and I would return it for a replacement.

Plasma hd tv takes hours to turn on. must plug and unplug for about 45 mins

Some components from the power source of your tv are dying and the embedded protection system detects that and blocks it to prevent further damage. Immediately stop trying to start it and call a repairman now, while the damage is still fixable, otherwise you will end up without the tv.

TV turns on/off automatically at 1-2 mins intervals.

Replace the power supply, PN: BN44-00206A

It's easy to locate, but requires adjustments once it is installed. Panel voltages must be adjusted according the the specifications of the TV. There is a sticker on the back of the plasma panel which provides each voltage setting. You can reference this sticker to make the proper adjustment. Using a DMM, connected between chassis ground and the panel voltage you are adjusting, turn the adjustments on the power supply very slowly, until you are measuring the specified voltage within 0.5v. I hope this helps and good luck.

It was working fine then no picture dark sceen sound work fine

More information is required. Your backlight is lit (screen not dark) but I need to know what you have connected to the TV (your sources) and how they are connected. Does the menu/OSD (on screen display) work?

Your TV's power regulator may have a problem. But first check if your voltage is sufficient on the wall socket. Try using other electronic appliances there. =================================== Hope this helps let me know ok?
