Question about Samsung TXM2796HF 27" TV

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!

Why do young child struggle in daily routines?


There are many reasons a young child may struggle with day to day routines. The most common reason is their attention span. Up to the age of 5 years old, a child usually has one minute of attention span per age, so a 2 year old has a two minute attention span, a 4 year old has a 4 minute attention span, and so on and so forth.

The second most common reason is that they are given too much responsibility too soon. While children can help with chores at all ages, the chores need to be age appropriate, so you might give a 2 year old a dust rag to wipe a table with but you wouldn't give them a vacuum cleaner of course.

Another common reason is that children don't get nearly enough sound sleep these days. Infants and toddlers need on average 12-14 hours of sleep a night. Some may be able to get away with as few as 10 hours, and others may need as many as 16 hours of sleep a night. 3-5 year old's need anywhere from 10-13 hours of sleep a night and some need as many as 14 hours of sleep a night, while others can survive on only 9 hours of sleep a night. Older children in the 6-13 range need a minimum of 9 hours a sleep a night, and the average child in that range needs 10-11 hours of sleep. Some get by on as few as 7 hours while others need as many as 12 hours. No child under the age of 13 should be sleeping less than 9 hours a night. If they are, it could be one of the reasons that you struggle with the day to day routine, especially if it's the morning routine.

Other common reasons for a child having a hard time with a day to day routine is the need for a nap, not drinking enough water, too long of a wait between meals or snacks that's causing low blood pressure, and distractions by siblings, video games, etc.

First tv kept tuning on in middle of night now its kepts tuning off while ur watching


I don't know what might have been making it turn on in the middle of the night. It it keeps turning off while you are watching, you might want to check if:
1) someone is accidentially hitting the SLEEP button on the remote. The TV will turn off automatically 30, 60 or 90 minutes after the sleep button is hit. It can also get hit if you set the remote between seat cushions on the couch and someone moves, etc.

2) Does the TV get enough ventilation to allow heat in the TV to circulate away from the set? Drapes, tight cabinet, etc. The temperature sensor may turn the TV off automatically to protect the TV.

3) Your power cord is not well plugged into the wall or you might have some issues with the wall outlet - expecially if it is an older home (before 1980). Any wiggle of the cord may cause it to disconnect for a very short time - the TV will shut off.

4) This Brand is only available through BEST BUY and this model has a 1-year warrentee. The manual says to call 1-888-BESTBUY for service.

Good luck.

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.
