This could be caused by lots of things.

Possible causes that come to mind are.

1. TV is over heating -

2. Power cord not securely plugged in the wall outlet.

3.lamp door cover, which could trigger the auto-shutdown switch - you can fix this on your self by correctly resetting the door cover witch.

4.The power board is Malfunctioning



You may want a local company come out and take a look because it's difficult to pinpoint the cause without looking at it. You can find a local shop google tv repair in google maps, or call 800-SAMSUNG for an authorized technician.

Hello, count the blinking light pattern. It may blink 2 to 9 times, pause and repeat the pattern again. Does it ever light the screen when it's cycling on and off? Let me know....tks

Image goes black and then returns shortly after


Many sets that use lamps do this right before the lamp fails--average life is 2000 hours or 2 years of normal use--if no blinking lights suspect the lamp first.

Rca HD61LPW42 -- we just replaced the color wheel. now we get a picture but only for a few seconds. then it turns off and after a few seconds restarts. this goes on indefinitely. a couple of times...


Hello

If the power light blinks slowly,

you've tried to turn on the TV during

the lamp cooldown cycle. Wait

approximately 30 seconds, and the TV
will turn on automatically.

If light blinks, pauses for about a

minute, and blinks again: the lamp is

trying to turn on (TV will turn on

when successful). If TV doesn't turn

on and sequence continues, the lamp also
needs to be replaced.

To order lamp call 1-800-338-0376.

Have your TV serial number

and lamp type available (you'll

find this information on the

sticker that's on the right side of
the TV).
OK.

Samsung DLP turns on and off - cycle repeats


make sure put the lamp door back before trying to turn it on because they have switches on them that allow the tv to turn on. If that is ok you probably have a bad ballast.
Call a local tv repair shop to further diagnose the problem.

No picture and no sound


Those blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.
