Question about Samsung Televison & Video

Open Question

I have a 40" Samsung tv (LN40) that is less then a year old. Suddenly, the tv will not stay on. I red light on the tv either stays on or blinds at random speeds. The turn off samsung sound plays each time the tv turns off. The tv sometimes doesnt turn on, just the red light blinks then makes the sound. Other times it may stay on for 2 seconds or 30. For the past 2 days, the tv is completely unusable. 90% of the time, the tv doesn't respond to the remote by trying to turn it on or by manually using the power switch on the tv..... Any thoughts??? Thanks!

SOURCE: tv shuts off spontaneously. red power light blinks.

Sounds like you may have a bad inverter board. This board powers the back light on the lcd panel. This board may be replaceable or the complete panel may need to be replaced. If the panel must be replaced you will be buying a new tv. Very expensive part. If the inverter is available seperatelly then it may be worth repairing. You should contact a Sony ASC for an estimate. Good Luck

Your LCD has gone bad or their is a high voltage problem that powers the LCD. Usually a inverter board.

Call Samung customer service, they are doing this repair for free. I had the same problem at 11 months, they replaced the power supply board under warranty. At 2 years I had the exact same problem again and this time they replaced 2 - 50 cent capacitors on the power supply board. It took the repair man less than an hour and he had the replacement capacitors on hand. The original board and the replacement board they gave me had capacitors that were faulty. Hopefully these new capacitors will last. I have to say that I was thinking (no more samsung products for me) but I got excellent customer service and they admit that they had a faulty product and they accepted responsibility.

While the model of your set is slightly different, the checks described generally still apply, as it is very similar.

The failure with this LCD might be due to a failing power supply or backlight inverter board. Since your TV is less then a year old, I would suggest to call the manufacturer to get it fix under warranty.
Good Luck.

Red light flashing while green light stays on


I have the same TV, your projection bulb has quit/failed.

A loud pop was heard and the picture has gone followed by a red led fault light clicking on and off.

if your tv is less than 1 year old, and you registered it with Toshiba, you could qualify for a free replacement.

otherwise expect to pay 200.00 for a new bulb from Toshiba.

only good thing is you can replace it yourself, only tool needed is a phillips screwdriver.

you can check EbaY for prices less than 175.00 to 150.00
i am on my 3rd bulb within 4 years....

good luck!
