    Thanks so much! I was hoping for a quick fix but I think its a little more complicated than I wanted to believe. I also called a tech today and he said it could be a lamp bulb (?) which would also not allow it to turn on if blown. A new bulb cost $229.

Hello racecar3,

This denotes a power supply problem. It could be as simple as a blown fuse or as complex as a problem in your horizontal drive section of your Tv causing the shutdown circuit to activate. I would suggest that first you unplug the TV and do a visual inspection to see if you can see any blown fuses in the TV. If not then put the rear TV cover back on and then take the TV to a qualified TV repair shop to have them take a look at it, and repair it.

I hope this helps,
Thank you,
Henry A. McKelvey

I have a Samsung Plasma tv (PN59D8000FFXZA) that after my neighbors house was struck by lightning it won't turn on. What steps should I take for diagnosing the root issue?


When it get hit with any surge usually the main Board is gone, to replace it and hope nothing else is wrong, you can get a 4k LED for probably same price

When i turn on the tv, it takes maybe a minute or two to turn it on.. red light flashes as it try to turn on what is wrong with the TV


Hello,

The reason your television takes a while to come on and have a red light flashing before it comes on is because it is about to develop a problem and it is most likely a power problem.

If your television does not get properly shut down and power goes off on it without the proper procedures, it would start to flash the red light which is to sound a warning that your television would become faulty within a short period of time.

So ensure you go through the normal procedure in turning off your television.

Take care

Can't power on TV occasionally


It is possible that the conductivity of a power diode is diminished after a period of time causing the unit to receive just under the needed current to function. Test the resistance of internal components after periods of tine or seek manufactures assistance.

Does not turn on, light flashes, it clicks once, the remote control will not even turn the light on


Please follow the below troubleshooting steps: 1. If the Television is plugged into a surge protector, remove it from the surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. 2. Try connecting the TV to a different AC wall outlet. 3. Try power resetting the TV. To Reset the TV, disconnect the power cord for a short period of time (approximately 1 minute), then reconnect the power cord and power ON the TV. 4. If the issue still persists, TV will require service.

Flashing green light


Did you try this yet

SYSTEM RESET
If the TV will not respond to either the remote control
or the front panel controls and/or will not power Off,
press the SYSTEM RESET button with a pointed item
like the end point of a paperclip. The TV will turn Off
and the TIMER light will flash quickly for about one
minute. When the TIMER light stops flashing, you may
turn on the TV again. Changes you made the last time
the TV was On before you used the SYSTEM RESET
button may be lost, however, the changes you made
previously are not lost.
POWER/TIMER Indicator
The green light is a multi-function indicator. This light
will flash rapidly for about one minute each time the TV
is plugged into the wall electrical outlet, when power
is restored after a power failure, or using the SYSTEM
RESET button. Do not attempt to turn on the TV again
during this period. Wait for the flashing to stop and
the light to turn off, before attempting to turn the TV
on. While the TV is powered on, the light illuminates
steadily. If the TV has been programmed to turn on
automatically using the Timer feature,
