Samsung TXR3079WH Power Failure

The tv is less than 3 years old and turns itself off after only being on for a few minutes. this was our first HD purchase in anticipation of 2/09. All other TV's in the house are 15+ years old and working fine. Did not think I would be replacing the samsung before the others. Help.

    TV was turned on and then turned off by itself and would not power back up. We have never had any problems before with the TV.

    TV is probably 5 years old now.  It turns itself off after just a few minutes and takes a good half an hour before it will turn back on again.  Then it only turns itself back off after just a few minutes.

SOURCE: 52 HD Samsung tv turns off

I have the same problem with my 56" HD Samsung. It shuts off automatically and then on the power button the word Lamp is light up in green. Sometimes I can turn it back on but other times it won't and I have to wait a bit. It's been embarassing a couple times when people were over for a movie. I believe it might be some kind of overheating problem but would like someone to confirm this.

SOURCE: Samsung 50" DLP TV turns itself off

My Samsun DLP turned off and “Screen Freeze”. Fixed it. How? Well, after reading lots of posts I almost purchased a new $136 bulb but decided to give it one more look. Turns out there’s a small switch inside the TV that needs to be depressed at all times. Samung put this switch there to turn the TV off if the rear panel is removed to protect people from harmful UV radiation. I just moved into a new apartment so it must have become unsettled.

I took my back plate off, pushed the button up and down several times then carefully replaced the panel. Note, the panel has a sort of plastic finger jutting out. Make sure this finger is firmly pressing the switch down. If not, wrap some tape around it to make the finger fatter. Dude, use black electrical tape so you don’t start a fire, OK?

So, my TV came back on and I danced a little jig in the living room. Then I started switching channels and everything froze when I got to channel 68. This didn’t look good. I read more posts about people getting this and simply returning the TV. Oh no! Well, I unplugged the TV several times and got bupkis. Frustrated, I finally pulled the power strip off the wall and plugged the TV into the wall. I got a blue screen and when I switched the channel back to 5 it started working. Danced a little jig. Plugged the antenna power into the wall, got better reception, channel surfed to 68 again (don’t ask), and got screen freeze . . yet again. Why? Unplugged the TV several times and got bupkis.

Then the bulb in my head finally went on. My Samsun does NOT like channel 68 but I could NOT get it back to channel 5. Every time I plugged the TV back in it turn on at channel 68 and froze. Ah, unplugged the antenna again, got the blue screen . . again . . and I was able to change the channel back to 5. Danced a little jig.

Hope this helps sooooooomeone.

SOURCE: Samsung TV turns itself off every 10/15 minutes

I had a similar problem with my Phillips 42 in. LCD HD TV.

Here's the problem. The Power Supply Board. I opened my TV up(warranty was up of course) and found several bad capacitors. Phillips and several other companies were sold capacitors that although were highly rated failed within 5 years because of a lack of preservatives. All sorts of electronic equipment is now being effected due to these defective capacitors.
Solutions?
1. Take it in and have it fixed
2. Open it up, check the board for faulty capacitors(bulged or leaking) Buy a new Power supply board and install it.
3. Remove PSB, remove faulty capacitors and replace with compatible new ones.

Hope this helps

Fuse blown


the fuse will always blow if there is a shorted component. the horizontal output transistor may be the most likely culprit, if you are not a technician, have it service by a qualified one.
