Question about Televison & Video
My Samsung LE23R will not turn on, it stays on standby, i have lost the remote, it is the feather touch buttons, and they dont seem to do anything, is there anyway to reset or somehting
SOURCE: can't turn on
When you turn the MAIN off you are killing all power to the set---Some advice---If you Google the model number of this set with the word problem after it you should find what I have seen a lot in these sets: they develop bad solder connections on the power supply printed circuit board---usually the board is about 18 inches tall and 12 inches wide--A number of sites online offer to have you ship them the board and they will resolder it for you.
I have repaired about 12 of these with this problem in the last 2 years---The board has to be removed(there are quite a few plugs that need to be labeled and removed and lots of screws that secure the board in place.)
Maybe not a job for a do it yourself person but the soldering (if it is your problem) will take about 45 minutes(including removal and installing board back).
Like most modern sets this set uses lead free solder and it is soldered(the boards) in a wave or one step process---over time from heat and expansion some connections may crack or even break loose----I would look at the POWER SUPPLY board(follow the power cord as it goes right to it)

It sounds like a microprocessor that has latched up. Try pulling the AC plug and letting it rest for an hour or two, the problem may cure itself. The end of your message was truncated at ". . . working normally but then it shut . . ." Try posting the missing portion as a comment to your original.
