It coulb be a connection problem on the SD or A board. Check all capacitors and connections there. Also, the power supply might need to be repaired or replaced - it sounds like the Y sustain board is bad (hopefully not though = expenxive to replace). ONLY IF YOU HAVE ELECTRONICS EXPERIENCE, disconnect the plug on the left side of the power supply and measure the VA voltage to see if the Ysustain took out the power supply board or not. The power supply board is right in the middle of the TV, and the Ysustain is on the left side. Measure that VA voltage on the left side power connection, but you MUST disconnect it first, before you measure it. You absolutely have to replace the Ysustain and Ydriver boards and your cost is about $400 - so consider buying a replacement TV - get an LCD with warranty - at least LCDs can be repaired on a component level, which is much cheaper than buying new boards. Plasma TVs are dooiuble sided boards, cannot be repaired on the component level, and VERY expensive to replace.

Samsung TV power output is bliking


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.

Pin 93 of the MPU IC9003 monitors the status of the SC, SU, SD board. During normal operation, the photo-coupler PC6480 outputs a low to pin 93. If the SC, SU, or SD board becomes defective, a high is provided to pin 93. As a result, the unit shuts down and the power LED blinks 7 times.
