Question about Samsung LN40C530 TV

Open Question

My Samsung LN40C530 will not turn on properly. It can take 5 to 10 attempts before it will power on and stay on. When I try to turn it on, it makes the power on noise, but then turns immediately off. Usually after a bunch of attempts it finally turns on.

SOURCE: The tv will not turn on

Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.
Please post back what you find.

SOURCE: won't turn on makes clicking noise

This is a classic switchmode power supply, shutting down to avoid a fire, explosion, or both. This set had developed a problem, that is so severe that the set must be shut down, This set should be removed from the Power, and in my professional recommendation, you should get a "Quote" for repair, from, an Akai, Approved Service Center, this point is very important for a good result, Always contact, their local, "Head Office" Now, when you get the information you want, then you can decide as to repair of replacement. The reason we want an approved agent, is that way, all the engineers are trained on their own brand sets, they have seen almost all faults, and will get the job done quicker, and for less cost, and usually have parts on hand, also sometimes, there has been a service bulletin in issued and the repair may be subsided or even free. Above is your user manual, below is your service and repair manual.
Really, with something under a year old MUST be covered by a merchantability cover. A unit such as this can reasonably be expected to last more than 8 months of use, even if on 24/7. In my professional opinion, you should return the unit, and demand that it be repaired, better yet replaced. This really is unacceptable. You need to contact a head office, and relate this all to them, Consumer Guarantees Act, gives you this right of redress, and the supplier must remedy NOT the manufacturer.

You have failing capacitors on the power supply board. This is a very common issue with these and others. If you know how to test capacitors and solder its not that tough to repair. Or you can just replace the power supply board which is part number BN44-00184A and runs around $100. You can purchase the board at many places on line. Just do a search in Google with the part number,,,,Good luck

This is more than likely from a capacitor failure in the power supply board. If you want to order the board yourself you can. If you want someone to fix it for you, take it into the shop after you call around for estimates. It is ALOT cheaper to take it in than to endure a trip charge.

Hi my samsung will turn on and work fine but if i shut it off i need to unplug it and let it sit awhile before it will turn on again please help

It sounds that your TVs' main system control memory IC is faulty. But, before make it confirm, contact any service technician. If you wish to get more details, check this link. Selecting the view option, either to Mosaic / Time slide, can be selected by the drop-down list, at the top left of the display window, will make surf easy. You can also do a search, by type in the brand name/model number/IC used, in the search box at the top right of the display window

Your TV should not be sharing a circuit with any of the devices you mention. The problem is not surges, it's current drain. Apparently your TV is sensitive to voltage drops

How do I remove stand off Samsung LN40C530FIF TV

very carefully----set must be laid face down on padded surface that fully supports the screen with no pressure on it---one wrong move and set is destroyed.

exert no downward pressure with set in this position---look for the four or more bolts that go thru the back and secure the stand unit noting if different lengths and oh make sure you put the bolts somewhere where you do not loose them.

My Samsung LN40C530 F1F just went out last night no power nothing I had it plugged into a surge protector, I tried an alternate power outlet I just purchased this TV last year July 10, 201.

Try without the surge protector.

Sometimes the power supplies go bad (could be your issue). Sometimes the back-lights go bad and it will seem like it is powering on (red light goes on/off) and you get audio but no picture.

You will be better off getting a new one rather than getting this one fixed. Unfortunately, sony and samsung are the best two brands. You can try calling Samsung to see what they will do for you (so close to your one-year warrantee).

Good luck.
