20 Most Recent Samsung FPT5084 50 in. Plasma HDTV Questions & Answers


A common problem for this is a bad capacitors on the power supply board. This is why you are hearing the click sound and also turning off. There might also be some other bad component on the power supply board which is making it defective.

If you know about TV repairers, I would suggest that you open the TV and read the power board/panel with a meter, detect the bad component and replace it. Take note that TV stores a lot of current that can shock, so leave the TV for a while before you open it.

If you don't know about TV repairers, take the TV to the nearest repairman to fix the fault for you.

Good luck.

Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.
In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.
Before going further; try a hard reset first. If it does not help you, replace the main digital board. There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; visit the site linked here.

Do not bother replacing the whole power supply for just a few well known bad capacitors on it!
Just get quality ones (both better quality *and* higher breakdown voltage) and you won't have this problem ever again...well at least for sure not before a tons of other issues.

Hope this helps!
