TXM2796HF power up problem

Hi, I've been sleeping with this tv for about 4 years, meaning its usually on all night..It went off the other night and will not turn on with the remote or the switch on the set. There use to be a little red light near the power switch when it was off, that never illuminates anymore. Thought I heard some slight ticking noise from the rear of set. Any ideas would be appreciated. I'm not willing to spend over a hundered or so to fix.

    Thanks for the info. You sound knowledgable, is there any way you could walk me thru fixing it? I am a FORD Tech and did build a automotive meter from a kit years ago, so I think I could handle the sodering. I do not know where to purchase the parts, could you sell them to me? I'd be willing to waste $50 just for the experience. I also could trade you out for Ford parts if you happen to have one..What brand of new set do you recommend...This makes the last 2 tv's I bought to crap out with in 5 years or is lasting forever not reality anymore?

    I have the exact same issue with my Samsung TXM3298HF (same family as the TXM2796): won't power up, and a ticking sound when plugged in. Help!

Sorry to tell ya bro if your not a tech you cant fix it. You have to have a multimeter, a soldering iron, and a new flyback transformer as well as a new horiz. output transistor. You also will need to know how to unsolder solid state electronics, without messing up the board. This set will not be worth sending to a repair shop. Dude, this set has lived out its expected life expectancy. 4 years for a Samsung TV set is a long , long time! Put this set to rest and go out and buy another inexpensive set, as thats what a samsung is. They are made to last 2 to 3 years , and thats it!

Sleep timer shuts off picture but not the sound

It's possible that the power outage could have affected the TV's settings, including the sleep timer function. You may want to try resetting the TV to its default settings to see if that resolves the issue. To do this, you can usually find a "reset" or "factory reset" option in the TV's settings menu.
If resetting the TV doesn't work, it's possible that there is a software or firmware issue with the TV. In this case, you may need to contact Hisense customer support or bring the TV to a repair shop for further diagnosis and repair.

I pressed the sleep button by accident and the pic and sound went off and the stand by/timer red light started blinking. what does it mean?

Depends on how many times it blinks,just count the blinks Example: if it blink 2 times then pauses and blink 5 times then the code would be 25 and so on

Once you have this code,please post it.

TV wont turn on, makes buzzing noise and shuts off

I have two RCA HD52W59 TV's. I have had one for 3 years and one 4 years. The one I have had for 4 years is giving me the problem. Last week the tv turned off while watching it. It wouldnt come right back on. 10 minutes later we tried and it worked fine. the other night the kids were watching and it turned off and smelled like something burning. I tried turning it right back on and got no power at all. I tried to turn it on two days later and it made a buzzing noise and the green light went out. Never did get a picture, no powering up on the screen. Any ideas? Don't want to spend alot of money. Really loved the TV hope it isnt junk now. Better yet I hope the same thing doesnt happen to the other one I have.
