Question about Samsung Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Samsung LN52A750R1F LCD TV Was having an issue with getting the TV to turn on. Sometimes it would take up to five or ten minutes before it would turn on after pressing the power button on the remote. Symptoms: The little power LED (on the front bezel) would turn on "solid" for a about 30 seconds and then start blinking. Next, after a few more seconds, you can hear a click (like a relay releasing) and the LED will go out for a few seconds. After about 15 seconds the LED turns back on and stays on for a few seconds, and then starts blinking again. For the last few days the TV would finally turn on and would stay on all day long. Now the only thing it does is constantly go through the same "loop" descried above...except it never turns on. I am guessing there is a power supply problem or some type of "heat-activated" automatic circuit breaker causing the problem. If anyone knows what is the likely component that is acting up, do you know where we can order the part? Thanks for any help you may provide.

It seems power supply board problem and most probably few leaky electrolytic capacitors in output section of power supply board is cause of said symptoms. TV is not getting constant and smooth power supply due to leaky capacitors and gets reset on every attempt to power up.
If you are good with soldering parts in circuit board then replace capacitors in secondary (output) section of power supply board as mentioned in below image to fix the problem and if you feel uncomfortable working in circuit board, replace complete power supply board as it is available with Shop Jimmy.

    Thanks for the quick reply. Yes, I am at ease with the replacing of components. Since I have not taken apart the TV yet, do you think I can find these locally, like at Radio Shack, or will I need to order them from Digi-Key or Mouser.

    Wither way, I will give it a try.

    Required capacitors will be available in local part stores, Radio Shack etc.

  • BV Alvarez Jun 05, 2010

    Another question I forgot to mention. Would there be any point in increasing the value and/or voltage rating, since this appears to be a weakness in the design?

  • Shahid Electronics
    Shahid Electronics Jun 05, 2010

    Yes, my bad, I also forgot to suggest about new capacitors. Capacitance value should be same like 1000MF but working volts should be increased like if old capacitor is 25Volts than replacement should be like 35Volts. Let me explain it again in following example.
    Old capacitor = 1000MF 25V
    New capacitor = 1000MF 35V to avoid future problem.

  • BV Alvarez Jun 05, 2010

    OK! Sounds good. I'll take it apart later today or tomorrow, and let know if this works.

    Again, thanks,

    OK, no problem.

  • BV Alvarez Jun 11, 2010

    Well...I finally got someone over to help get the darn thing off the wall mount. And sure enough you hit the nail on the head. The two 1000UF caps were swollen and leaking. Went to the Shack and picked up two replacements rated at 35 volts (instead of 25 volts like the originals) and they were physically larger too.
    Took longer to get it off the wall than to complete the fix. All is working like new.

    Thanks for you excellent advice,

Have a squeal when TV is turned on .... takes five to ten on-off cycles to get the problem to stop and connect to the cable.

Hi Tom,
It appears to be a power supply issue. Bad electrolytic capacitors are found responsible for this kind of problems. A good local TV Tech should be able to fix it.
Good Luck

Samsung LN46A580P6F LCD HD TV is turning on and off from two to ten times before it stays on when the tv is cold

Samsung LN46A580P6FX
On the main board, IC104 (Part #SPX1587AT) is a 3.3VDC to 1.8VDC regulator. When this IC fails, the 1.8VDC drops substantially when the TV is turned on. After five minutes or so, the unit operates fine. This IC can be purchased from digikey for about $1.80.
Another fix is to attach a 1000uF 10 volts capacitor from ground to the DC source of this IC. I used a 1000uF 50V (overkill) for proof of concept. See attached pictures.

Samsung 40" LCD Built in

Samsung sold thousands of big screens with a power capacitor issue--they have issued extensions of warranties on many models covering free in-home repairs by licensed regional technicians (sometimes not where you bought the TV). I know this one--at first, the TV would just behave this way maybe twice, then stay on...later, as the problem advanced, three, four, then five, and on, until finally it would keep cycling off and on until it completely stopped working. When my girlfriends' 46" LCD Samsung finally quit, we called Best Buy, who told us to call Samsung, who then did send a technician from about 60 miles away--he had the little capacitor replaced, and the TV working, within minutes. I asked him how they could afford to do this, and he informed me that he makes runs of these jobs, scheduling perhaps a dozen in one day. So, it's chronic, yes, and they're aware of it, and fixing it--hopefully still for free! So, I'd call my dealer, see if you have to call Samsung, then if you do, then call 'em--they should still be sending out the cavalry for this issue--they caused it by using cheap, poor-quality capacitors (the replacements are 'new and improved', and we've never had an issue since).

Samsung monitor MN:2333HD, monitor will shut off after about five or ten minutes

The power supply on the unit needs repair. In some cases you can find a damaged one with good power and install the board. A good technician should be able to fix the unit for 80.00 or so. If you want to send the unit in to us we can usually have the repair completed in less than a week. Thanks

I have a Samsung LNS3251D 32-Inch LCD HDTV , that after two years of use is going Off/On every ten seconds after the initial turn On. I understand from reading this forum that the Samsung 40 inch LCD has a...

In almost all cases where the set is taking a long time to turn on and then turning off it will be the Power Supply board that will have bulging capacitors, usually three to five. Look on the upper right side of the Power Supply and look for any blown caps. You can replace these caps and you will be fine. Now the other cause can be the Power Switch is shorting out. You can disconnect the the Power Switch but not the IR sensor and then turn ON the set with your TV remote and see if this stops the problem. If you are not skilled in component level repair on the Power Supply board then buy a new Power Supply board and install it.
