Plasma TV-power light does not come on

My 42" Plasma TV has always been plugged on the outlet. Today, I found there was no red light on the TV. I tried to unplug and re-plug, there was no power come to the TV set. I don't see there is any place for fuse replacement or other opening that I can check. Any suggestions? Samsung 50" Plasma TV. Blue light around power switch not on. TV willnot power up. TV is < 1yr. old. Unplugged & plugged TV back in. Tried leaving it unplugged over night. No results. Tried different plug on power bar also.

    Thank you. I will be bringing the TV in this week to get it repaired. Should be warranty. TV is less than year old. Just wanted to get some advice on what the problem might be.

    Yes did try a different plug. Other units on the power bar are working. I do believe I have a few days left before the warranty runs out. Will be contacting retailer tomorrow.

    Thanks

Hello!

most probably the fuse inside the circuit blown out, You should open the back of the tv to become circuit board visible. But this hard when novice do it.

To be sure that everything will be alright i would rather suggest you to bring the tv to the nearest service center. maybe warranty work for that.

best regards,melnavz

    Are other items on the power board working? If there is power at the point you are using, then the Tv has a power supply failure. It will generally need someone with high voltage experience to have a look at it for you. Because the set is just out of warranty, I strongly suggest that you phone an authorised service agent of Samsung and make a big fuss about the fact it has failed so close to the warranty being over. They are often willing to extend the warranty to cover the problem you may have. This means no cost to you, and you have your set expertly repaired. Let me know how you go.



    regards

The fuses are inside the TV is you remove the back cover but even changing the fuse it might not work because it could have other failures in the other board assemblies.
How old is your plasma?

Power light blinks 14 times


You have a power malfunction. Recheck your power connections. If the TV still persists in behaving in this manner don't try to turn it back on, but do find out if the TV is worth repairing. Most now are made so cheaply that nobody will try to repair them. I've always bought used televisions, even when they had vacuum tubes. I bought my LED at a major store's resale outlet and saved a bundle. (Quite frankly, TVs and other electronics today are so complicated and untized and made so cheaply- and sold so dearly- that if one goes bad you don't even bring it in except for them to verify it. Then they give you a new one. They're simply not worth repairing to the companies. and its an opportunity for them to sell you a better one at a discount. Of course, if you are under warranty, you might be all set. PS: those extended warranty contracts are not worth the paper they are printed on and no smart consumer ever buys one. they're for suckers) Good luck.

Why won't my Panasonic 42 TCP42S30 42 Plasma TV turn on.


Switch off TV, switch off power, remove plug and wait for 48 hours and retry.
If problem persists, I suggest it is better to refer it to a qualified service
technician, since the back cover has to be opened for investigation/rectification.

AKAI 32" LCD HDTV WILL NOT TURN ON


The only solution at this point would be to get the power supply repair since new boards are not longer being manufactured. In about 95% of the time if the LCD doesn't power up or turns OFF by itself or need to be unplug for some time to make work again; those are the symptoms of a dying or defective power supply.

Describe the past - How did it fail? One day or acting up for a while? Could be a weak power supply - a bad capacitor on a power supply too. Look for popped up capacitor top inside.
