SAMSUNG 52 IN.LCD TV, WILL NOT COME ON, THE POWER & LIGHT BUTTON CLICKS ON & OFF CONSTANTLY


Sounds like it may have taken a surge. Did you unplug the set? Try that and give it 5 minute time out before powering back up.

Did anything happen before the problem started like a power outage? big storm? Brown out condition (that's when power is low due to excessive AC use in the summer and the lights grow dim etc - very bad for electronics and motors too)

Do a little more detective work and post your suspicions and findings.

Worse case scenario is there is something wrong inside your set and may need a visit to the repair center. How old is it?


Hope this helps.

Due to electric power problem my 26" samsung LCD TV blown up. Is there any safety measure in the form of fuse or circuit breaker in LCD TV's manufactured by Samsung India


Yes. The TV has a solder in 4.5 amp fuse. BUT most of the time when the power surges it also shorts the Bridge rectifier assy. IF you are not familiar with solder techniques, you will have to replace the power supply board. SHOP jimmy has in stock. Use model number .

Does my samsung tv keeping turning itself off because of not having plugged it into a surge protector or is it more a fault with my tv


It is a fault with your power supply module actually inside the tv...take it to a local service center or if its under warranty take it back. surge protectors help prevent issues like this occuring due to damage to the power supply from surges but not having one wont cause these problems unless it has recieved a surge.....in future i would use a surge protector on all your expensive appliances, surges and power fluctuations are very common in mains power i live near the mines and we have power problems all the time!! hope this helps,ben

No power on Samsung TV after storm


Hello Zkarim,

I'm very sorry to hear about your unfortunate new's. I had the same problem in my own home maybe a week ago.

Basically if your power flickered on and off at anytime during this storm then there was a power surge that probably fried your TV.
* First check the power where the tv was plugged in. Is it a power strip or a surge protector ? Surge protectors typically have an on/off switch and a separate reset push button.

If it is a power strip then the tv fried because there was nothing to stop it from happening (not even the fuse). If it was plugged into a surge protector then it could be quiet a few years old and not as reliable or the surge was to powerful for the limit on the surge protector.

The only thing you can do personally is send it in for repair if it's under warranty, if it is not then you can have it looked at by an authorized repair technician in your area. Troubleshooting should be fairly low, and you will at least be able to find out your options once they find the defected part.

Thank you for choosing Fixya!

Samsung 40" lcd - Connecting to PC saying 'MODE NOT SUPPORTED'


First of all, check that the TV is set on PC input when you use PC video input at the back.

Then you may also need to go to video and display properties>>settings, from control panel (personalize on Vista).

There lower down resolution and ensure that frequency is set the same as tv.

LG 47" LCD TV - 47LC7DF Clicking Noise


I was told that these clicking noises (which happen on my Magnavox LCD too) were due to the "power required" at the internal switch. Seems that the power required to immediately turn on the TV is too much for a standalone household outlet, so it "surges" power in a series to get enough there. Hence, the clicking sounds are actually mini power surges to send more power to the internal circuits to turn the TV on.

If your set is like mine, these noises generally stop after a minute or two, correct?
