My kids just told me the TV is broken with the same problem - SONY KDF-55XS955 - LED blinks (6) times then goes off then blinks again (6) times....again & again. I've just scheduled a technicion for Sep 2008 but if there's a fix I want to repair myself. Any ideas as to where I can get a replacement fuse? Any help would be appreciated....Can anyone help?

I had this issue as well and was able to fix it. I had quotes from service technican from $400 to $600. But I was able to find the service bulletin at Agoraquest.com. There is a member there called Jehill who has all the information, however, the only way to private message him is to upgrade to premium membership which costs $12. Which honestly is well worth it, I was able to get the TV back in working condition in about 2 hours and saved $400 and a lot of pain.

The packages available can be viewed here.

It seems from this page that they have been able to help several other people with the same issue.

Samsung LN40C610N1F. When plugged in, the red standby light comes on, but when I hit the power button the unit will not power on. The light doesn't blink or anything.


I see so many here with no sound/nopicture issues:

ISSUES:

1. IF sound main fuse/s are good.
2. If no power or standby check main fuse, standby power supply and any signsof damage you can see---burnt parts etc.
3. almost all these sets the troubleshooting involves checking voltages on the main power board to narrow down theproblem.
4. Be safe and if you do not know what you are doing don't open the set.

Answers to issues:

1. RE:fuses---if a blown fuse is found get a good replacement(not the genericones like Radio Shack). Many fuses are special even aside from amperage--Don'tput a higher rated amperage fuse in the set for any reason.

2. RE: power supply in set: if total dead aside from main fuse the set uses astandby power supply that runs 7/24 and a main supply (some are combined andsome not.

Here aside from checking fuses you want to examine all the filter caps on thepower/standby to see if any are puffed up or buldged up in some fashion--Iattach a photo of a good one---top should be silver metal and PERFECTLY flatand have no brown material coming out on top or bottom.

What happens in the standby area is they use caps with too low a voltage rating(saves money) which causes them to fail in a year or two---the standby runs7/24 and the heat dries out the caps and they fail.

3. Trouble shooting consists of the above and then at some point you have tobuy and try a board to see if it fixes it or not.

4. Safety first--no TV set is worth getting injured or even killed over.4_19_2012_3_53_26_pm.jpg

if set opened look for puffed up caps like these on the power board.

Was watching TV, heard a pop and the screeen went black. Now when I turn it on, the pwoer light blinks green but their is no picture or audio. The light then starts blinking red


Hi,
Is is standby light blinking red or any other light? Let me know how many times red standby light blinking after three seconds long pause to provide you helpful info.
It seems pop sound was due to broken lamp, please check lamp inside tv and if it is broken, replace it to solve tv problem.
Hope this will help.
Thanks.

The standby light flashes red ten times


You need to have it repaired by the TV manufacture. The circuit board inside the TV is burned and needs to be replaced.
