Question about Samsung 40 in. Flat-Panel LCD HDTV

1 Answer

The TV started taking a few tries to start once you hit the tv button. It took 17 minutes the second last time we tried to start it. This time it wouldn't start at all. We have misplace the manual. The TV is less than 3 years old and was bought at COSTCO. Is there a way we can get the TV to start up again efficiently? You also now need to turn off the power source to turn off the red light which shows the tv to be on.

The problem you have described, is caused by faulty capacitors on the power supply board. Plagued capacitors will initially take too long to charge themsevles to sufficient voltage and will pop on continued usage, to the point where they won't be functional at all. If the set is under warranty(It will be if you have purchased the extended warranty) Samsung should fix it for you free of cost. Otherwise if you are handy at fixing electronics then I can guide you with the repair(requires soldering as well). If not then please get me your zipcode so that I can guide you to the nearest tv tech in your area.

    Please get me the zipcode. Searching by state/City is pretty tough.

TV Rarely Starts


Check all the solder terminal at its main power regulator section circuit. Any loose solder terminal can poise this type of problem. Resolder all the suspected solder terminals by applying a little more solder. If you wish to get more details, check this site.

I have a Emerson LD190EM1 Tv DVD combo. It will not work with my Dish Network remote. What is the IR code?


I also have the same tv with no luck on my dish network with the codes. However, I just did an autoscan and found the code, but it doesn't tell you what code. I am sorry I cannot give you the code, since manually entering them did not work, but the auto scan did work!

To run auto scan follow these steps.... it took me about 5 minutes to find on my dish network remote.
1. Press and hold the tv mode button until all other mode lights flash.
2. Press the red power button (not the red tv power button, but the power button which normally shuts off your receiver only)
3. Press the up button (about every other second) When your remote finds the code, your tv will automatically shut off.... once it shuts off, DO NOT press the up button again.
4. While the tv is off, press the pound (#) button.
Your remote will be programmed to your tv. Turn on your tv with the small red power button with the tv wording and test other functions (volume, etc.)

I tried this last night, waiting about 3 seconds in betwwen with no luck after 30 minutes, just a tired finger from constantly pressing the up button. But tonight I tried it on my LD190EM1 and paused for a second inbetween pressing up and almost fainted when the tv actually shut off within 5 minutes of starting! Best of Luck!!!

No sound on my Sanyo LCD 32" flat screen tv


I had this same problem this morning. Luckily, when I reset the whole thing and did the channel search again the sound returned. I have no idea why it fixed it but it did. Hope this helps you.

I have a Magnavox 51" Projector TV. Model 51MP392H/17


Hello bullmuscle,

This is a power supply problem, I would suspect the HV power supply because the primary and secondary supplies anymore are tied to the HV power supply. This type of repair requires certain pieces of equipment, to test voltages, look at signals, and to if need be test for shorts in inductors (Switching PS transformer and Flyback transformer). I would not recommend that you try to fix this yourself, The cost for this type of problem is not that expensive and can be done in one evening, if the parts are available. You may be fortunate and it could be just a blown fuse, in the HV or LV power supply circuit

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Sentry RMC-10 "Really Big Remote"


What I did to program. Hit "tv1.gif" and then hold down "code search" until it turns the light on. Then hit the on/off button until it turns off the tv......it took at least 20 times for me. Then hold down the "tv" button until it starts blinking. Then hit "ok". Mine then worked!

Toshiba MD13P3 13 in. TV/DVD


I have the exact problem. We have three TV/DVD combos from Toshiba, and within the last two weeks all three of them started have the same problem - all at different times. At first I thought one had a power surge problem, so I took it to the TV repair shop (being diagnosed now), then a few days later the second one did the same thing. And now, three days later, the third one (newer model Toshiba) started doing the same thing.

I have had the same problem. I've just managed to get the monitor working again by VERY QUICKLY navigating through the monitor setup menu to the 'factory reset' option and hitting reset before the screen had a chance to blink off.

The problem I had is that the monitor suddenly goes black, but will come on for five seconds if I switch it off and on with the power button.

In that five seconds, I had to...
>Hit the menu button
>then hit the '+; button once
>then hit the menu button again
>then hit the '-' button
>then hit the menu button one last time

The above brings up the menu, scrolls up off the top of the list to the last item on the list (Factory Reset), selects Factory Reset, selects 'All settings' and resets the monitor.

I don't know if this is a permanent fix, but it just worked for me and mine has been doing this intermittently for the last week.

Give it a try, it's frustrating and will take a few tries, but it can't hurt.

Power light flashing/ no picture


I have the same problem. The only way to get the TV to come on is to unplug it, but once you get it back on it turns itself off again in a few minutes.
