    We had the same problem. They replaced a capacitor (not specified) and degaussing circuit.. So far so good.

  • Pauley2 Nov 05, 2008

    We had the EXACT same problem - TWICE within 12 months. The repair guy said it was a common problem on this particular model. The first time they replaced a whole board, the second time they replaced just a fuse on the board (because they had run out of replacement boards). Now I've noticed that the screen is unacceptably dark no matter how much I fiddle with the controls.

    As it takes the repair guys about 3 weeks to respond I thought I'd try to access the service menu myself but cannot find the remote button sequence anywhere. (Off, Info, Menu, Mute, On does not do it). Does anyone know it?

    All this TV has been broken for 6 weeks of the 54 I've had it. What a piece of.... Never again Samsung...

    i just moved this hunk of s*** to my house and it wont f***ing work, its the only i freakin have now. i hope i dont have to return it all the way back in maryland cuz im either gonna kill myself or someone else. i'll never buy from samsdung again

    I'm in the process of geting the problem solved also. Turn the TV on and in a few seconds it "clicks" and shuts down. Won't restart until you unplug and replug. Sounds like I'm in good company. Wish I knew this problem prior to purchase. The first hassle I had was that this model doesn't appear on Samsung's website. Like they've disowned it already! Tough to get their support when they don't show this as a model.

Shorted problem. Maybe in primary or secondary power supply. Need a repairman. Busted regulator, or shorted diode.

What does standby mean? my tv will not come on but the red standby light is on. How can i fix my tv.My tv is an sony 40" trinitron wega brand.

If standby red light is solid then press power or channel button on remote of tv itself to turn it ON.
And if red light is blinking/ flashing then it is an indication that tv got problem and tech visit is needed to sort out problem.

Standby light stays on and the tv will not go on

Please check batteries in remote that seems not working. Sony TV would either turns On or standby light will blinks if TV gets any internal problem.
You question shows standby light stays On that means TV does not receive power on command from remote.
If standby light is blinking in sequence, let me know how many times it is blinking and also intimate exact model number of TV to find out possible solution.

I have a Sony SRS BBE Trinitron (WEGA). The last few days when I tried to turn it on using the remote the Red Light would go on but the TV did not turn on. I would have to press the power button again to turn it on.. I tought the remote battery was just low.

Today when I tried to turn it on nothing is happening and the Red Light is blinking 9 times ??? I tried to unplug it and try it again, still does the same thing ???

We need help...

Sony Trinitron Color TV KV-35V65 - No Picture, red light stand/by timer flashing

A reset won't fix this. The standby light should be blinking a repeated count with a 3 second pause inbetween. Post that count here. That will indicate the circuit/condition that is preventing the set from turning on.

Toshiba TV, no power, red light flashing

Unplug the TV for 2 minutes and plug it back on.
It should work.
