Question about Samsung LN-S4051D 40 in. LCD Television

Television won't turn on at all

I have a Samsung HLR5656W DLP HDTV it just won't turn, I checked the fuse and it's good. Nothing looks burnt or loose,any ideas will be greatly appreciated. My Samsung LN-S4041D won't turn on. It makes a beeping sound, like it wants to come on, and there is the red light that keeps blinking like it is trying to come on. The TV is only about 2 yrs old. What could it be? We have un-plugged it for a few hours and tried to reset it

    Yes, I have the same problem. I purshased my Samsung LN-S4051D only 1.5 years ago. It won't turn on, it makes a bleeping sound and the red light keeps blinking like is going to turn on. I un-plugged it for few hours then plugged back and checked all the connections, but still not working. I kept it un-plugged as the bleeping sound does not stop.

    I have the Samsung LN-S4041D too and same problem. I've seen three answers so far, replace power supply, main board or this capacitor problem. I guess I'll get an estimate to see if I can back one of them up to decide what to do. I've had mine since Jan of '07 so I'm just 5 months past the warranty. Lovely. I won't buy that Samsung phone now.

    Same exact issue, it acts like it will start but doesn't sometimes after trying to power on for the 3rd time it might kick on, today it took 20 minutes to turn on the tv. Have had it for about 1.5 years

    I have the same problem the tv clicks and the red light comes on repeatedly but it will not power on. I talked to a couple of repair shops and they seem to believe it's either the mother board, $400.00 repair or an IT board, $300.00 repair. Tv is LN-S4051D 40" two yrs old. Samsung should recall the tv as it seems there is a faulty part. Why should I pay over 2,000 for a tv and two yrs later have to fix it. My 20yr old tube tv still works. Samsung you should be ashamed and you just lost another customer.

If you can look on the boards at capacitors ( do a Google of "blown capacitors" ) and then you will be able to see if there are any blown one's on the boards inside, if so some soldering will be needed to replacce the blown one if you can then the issue should go away. if you can not do this a service center can help complete the repair.

may be ur tvs lamp side have some problem. may be the lamp over heated and burned. just open its lamp cover ann check it.
also check its power supply input point(near fuse) there is an MOV (used for voltage surge protection) is burned or not. if there is any voltage surge it will get shorted and the fuse will blow off, protect the power supply for any further damage. check the fuse also. if found open then check the MOV. insert fuse only after replacing the MOV.

Why is there white dots appearing on my expensive 61 inch samsung. First it was 2 dots 5 days ago now there are 5 spots and counting.

It sounds like the mirror array is playing up. Maybe caused, as it is mechanical, by dust.
If it is still under warranty, I would have it looked at, if not request a Samsung Authorised DLP Technician takes a look for you. If you are in Europe Samsung may look at it with a view to helping when it comes to repair cost.
Good luck

The problem might be from the lamp. also, there might be a burnt capacitor on either the power panel or the main panel.

First you need to check the lamp by unplugging the television for about 3 hours then unscrewing it open then assessing the lamp to see if it is burnt, if it is burnt, then you need to replace it with a new one, but if it does not look burnt, then you need to understand that there is a burnt capacitor on either the main panel or the power panel.

To check and replace a bad capacitor, all you have to do is to take a close look at the capacitors on the main panel and power panel, if you see anyone looking swollen, burnt or pressed, then it means it is bad and to replace it, you will have to turn the board to the other side and melt off the tips using a soldering iron, then fixing in a new one and resoldering it back on the panel.

After doing that, your television should be in good condition once again.

Take care and good luck

notice it states 'hdtv ready', not 'hdtv'! probably need a converter or upgrade module to get 1080p! read the 'gotchas' in the owners manual!
