Maybe a defective power switch

You likely need to know the part number which means you need the model number of the TV. Here is a source of Australian 240V Samsung power boards:

I would test the power supply firstly.

The Spectrum remote controls are not functionally interchangeable with the Samsung remote control. A universal remote control would be a better choice although all URCs do not have the same functionality.

I show 013,015, 033, 053, 055, or 112 on one list and 505, 506, 516, 523, 526, 566, 573, 612, 627, 647, 652, 653, 654, 655, 656, 658, 659, 664, 665, 667, 669, 670, 679, 680, 704, 717, 730, and 738 on another. Surely one of these will work.

First understand that you need a little patience with this remote, it's a little slow, it may take a few seconds in between pushing buttons for it to react to your TV.

-Turn on TV manually first.

we're going to try and get the remote paired to your particular tv

-Facing RCA universal remote towards TV, press and hold both the POWER and TV buttons on the remote at the same time.. until the RCA universal remote POWER button lights up and is constantly on.

-Then press the PLAY button on RCA universal remote

(POWER button on remote should be blinking after pressing PLAY -- what the remote is doing is trying to program your TV with a list of codes. if your TV does not automatically shut off after a minute, press the PLAY button again. your TV should shut off. wait a few seconds before trying to press PLAY button again if you need to try again.)

Assuming remote turned off TV. Now let's try to get the remote to turn on your TV

On the remote at top right is a REVERSE button, press that. You should see the POWER button on the remote blink once in response to you doing that.

Watch for the power on light on your TV.. your TV may take a few seconds to power on..

Wait a couple seconds. if your TV has not turned back on, press the REVERSE button again. the POWER button should blink once again in response

If your TV did not turn on. You may have to repeat pushing the REVERSE button waiting a couple seconds for the remote to try turning on your TV. For some people this can take several times, if not a dozen times. Just be sure to be patient and wait a couple seconds in between pressing the REVERSE button again. (what the RCA universal remote is doing is going through a list of codes trying to find the right model to pair to)

Assuming the remote finally turned on your TV.. We are almost done. We programmed the remote to turn off the TV and turn on the TV. now we want to press the STOP button on the RCA universal remote to lock in those codes into the remote. After pressing the STOP button the light on the remote POWER button should turn off.

We are done. You should be able to change the channels and raise and lower the volume of your TV.

The firmware controls what happens as soon as the set is switched on and it loads the software of a smart tv. It is saved on an EPROM and is 100% reliable. If the television worked before, it is not the firmware that was the issue. you have a hardware issue.

And no there isn't.

Problem may be in the TV. Unplug it, then plug it back in. This "reset" may fix the problem. Why does it happen? Coding gets scrambled. Lag time between me pressing the button on the remote and the TV doing anything widely varies. Why? I conjecture that buffering is the culprit. So, give the set a bit of time to discharge before turning it back on.

You could download the "service manual" from the site below and see if it is truly a main board problem.
