You likely have the infamous Samsung capacitor problem. A capacitor(s) on your power supply board has failed, or is failing. Youtube has several videos (search "samsing capacitor) that are generic to Samsung TVs, showing how to identify and replace the failed capacitors with parts that are readily available. What it takes, more than anything, is soldering skills. I own the exact same TV you have (P3F variant), and have fixed it. I'm an electrical engineer with the parts available in my basement, but for me, the fix took about 15 - 30 minutes with the most time removing the back cover, plus if you don't have the parts, a trip to an electrical parts store or Radio Shack, or an order to DigiKey (less than $10). Some have reported that haranguing Samsung customer service brought free fixes even though the warranty has expired. If all else fails, I'd be willing to repair your power supply board, but you'd have to mail it to me and I'm not sure how contact info is passed on Fixya.

There is the possibility that your main board is what is bad, but with Samsung sets, the problem is most always the power supply (and clicking is one of the usual symptoms). Inspecting the power supply for capacitors that have either leaked liquid or have bulged, points to the power supply.

Why does my TV turn on and off by itself continuously when plugged in? (The remote is not being activated)


Hello, there are several things that it could be, but if the set comes on with a picture even for a couple of seconds, I would bet it's the main board failing. Part # is EBT48854401.....thanks

TV shuts off after 3 seconds


If the sound is still heard then the inverter board has failed and is triping the powersupply,if no sound the powersupply has failed.

KP-51WS510 blinking light but no picture at all. Audible click like usual followed by another click sound shortly after.


THE click is the relay on the power board coming on and then going off---red power light should blink a error code---when set shuts off (second click) watch the power light and count the blinks.


Let me know what you find.

The DM is fine if the led isnt blinking. Your set is going into protective shutdown. Try pressing the menu and the device/input buttons on the set both in together for 5 seconds to see if the set will blink a series of blinks pause then blink another series of blinks. Such as 2 blinks pause then 2 blinks, Then let me know what the blinks were and I will assist you with whats wrong
