Question about Samsung TXF2899 28" TV

1 Answer

I have a Samsung TXF2899 28" TV that is not turning on. When I press the power button on, I hear the power-on sound, it's red power indicator light blinks 10 times as if running a test but then it switches off. Is this blinking 10 times an indication of what the problem is. I'd like to find out if it is worth repairing.

It's running through a self diagnosis when the light blinks. The 10 blinks just happens to be how long it take to find a problem. Would have to be plugged into Variac and started at about 90 volts in order to keep it from shutting down. The life of a Television is averaged at 10 years, however most last longer and it could be something very simple to fix or something major. Thing is get an estimate from a reputable co before having it fixed and consider the cost to repair, age of the TV vs the price and warranty of a new one.

I have a 32 inch Samsung TV that is only two years old. When you press the power button, it sounds like it it turning on and the red light comes on but the screen is black and there is no sound.


Main board is bad since it works with both video and audio. Ur backlights are ok so that omits the inverter board. And the T con board is for video only - since you have hassles with audio and video that leaves the main board. Do not think it is the power supply since your inverter board is powering up the back lights.

Service menu codes panasonic


I provide this information for those that are qualified and trained to do TV repair work. Entering or making changes in service mode by untrained persons can cause significant and permanent damage to your television. If you are not qualified to service your television, please DO NOT ENTER these service menu codes.

Panasonic TV's after 1996 can be set to "Serviceman Mode" with the
following remote control sequence:

-select the SET-UP icon and select CABLE mode.
-select the TIMER icon and set the SLEEP timer for 30 minutes.
-press the ACTION button twice to get out of the menus.
-change to channel 124.
-adjust the volume to minimum (0).
-Hit the VOL down button on the TV itself (not on
the remote) and a red "CHK" should appear in the upper corner.
-press the ACTION and VOLUME DOWN buttons (again, on the
TV, not the remote) you will toggle between AGING and SERVICEMAN modes.

Select Serviceman mode. The POWER button on the remote control will
select one of the five Serviceman Adjustment modes.

The modes are:

B - Serviceman VCJ SUB Adjustments. These include sub-tint,
sub-color, sub-brightness, sub-contrast, colorkiller/ABL/gamma,
audio and video adjustment, and vertical size.

C - Serviceman VCJ Cut-off adjustments. These include Red, Green
and Blue cut-off, red and blue drive, automatic fine tuning
(AFT), RF AGC (RF gain control), horizontal center, beam limit,
etc.

S - Serviceman Options Adjustments. These involce the PIP and
clock.

M - Serviceman MTS (Stereo/SAP) adjustments.

CHK - the mode you first entered. Normal picture and sound, lets
you check things over and still have a hotkey into the
service menu.

There is one more adjustment that isn't in the five modes, it's
global. When in either the yellow or red CHK mode, you can press
RECALL on the remote control to enter the purity field check mode.
This lets you select a pure white, red, green, or blue screen. A
good thing to walk away from if you just want to temporarily freak
out the floor manager, but it will be fixed as soon as the TV is
turned off. Oh well.

To get out of Serviceman mode, press ACTION and POWER on the
receiver simultaneously for at least 2 seconds. The TV will momentarily
shut off and then comes back on.

Samsung TV won't turn on. Red light is solid, won't blink when pressed. All capacitors seem fine (none swollen or vented).


That model is covered under a class actions lawsuit settlement over bad power supply boards. You need to contact Samsung about this and get a warranty claim started, even if the original warranty is over the settlement terms will cover parts and labor. You can get additional information about this along with contact information here: http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/samsung-has-reached-a-settlement-in-class-action-lawsuit-over-faulty-tv-power-supplies/

This sounds like the issue with your TV. Here is a link with additional information about the settlement and how to get the warranty work completed.
