I have 6 blinking red standby lights and no power on my Samsung 59" 3D plasma hdtv model PN59D550C1FXZC.
I have replaced the power supply board, the video main board, the Y sustain board and the T-Con logic board (however, I am really not certain if my new T-Con board replacement came to me as faulty or not?) I am not a TV tech just fixing my own TV. I am perplexed at what else can be done or what board is not working? Can you offer help and parts?
It's not the answer you want, but I am sure you will agree with the sentiment from your own experiences. Faulty replacement parts is the issue.
Here is a question that we see often.
I've replaced everything in my television because it previously had a black screen with no lighting. Now it doesn't turn on at all and all I have is audio. What could be the cause ?
So your television stops working properly and you think it must be easy to fix, because you can buy boards on eBay, and you can watch YouTube videos. So you make a decision, you buy a board and you fit it, but the television still doesn't work! This is a classic case of the 'let's try replacing this' method of television repair and illustrates why it is a bad idea. It doesn't work for a number of reasons. To correctly diagnose issues, you need to know every board, what is does and every component on the board. You need to know which part has failed, replace the component, or replace the board. The parts you purchased off eBay were probably out of scrapped sets and not tested. The part you put in was dead when you put it in, so you just moved on to another guess at what might be the cause and replace a board that is fine. And so it goes on, you change all the boards and it still doesn't work. Did you notice the large print that says 'No Refunds, NO Returns'. This is to stop you sending your old one back and saying it didn't work, but the unscrupulous use it as an excuse to get money for selling items that may not work! The course to be a television engineer is 2 years full time education, take it to someone that knows how to diagnose and fix. It is by far the cheapest option. The part that failed might be a 20 cents fuse diode hard soldered to a board. They will charge you $2 parts and an hours labour.
