Hi everyone, wondered if anyone could help?
Out of the blue the power has completely stopped working. I've replaced the fuse in the plug and this hasn't helped.
Any ideas? Simple fix or need to take to a repair man?

Re: The power has gone - Samsung LT-P266W
I need to know if there is a red led that is on, or if there are no lights at all that come on, it's important because it will tell which board to replace, if your trying to trouble shoot it down to the component that is bad, good luck with it. I would call in a repair man.

Were the MAX4019's used as X2 buffers or invertor mode. If they were X2 then your signal level is down by half to the AD9882A. If the LT and MAX devices have failed, then maybe the AD has gone as well. Is the power supply levels to these chips correct. As a test, check if the VGA input selector line to the LT can switch correctly. If not then you are correct. I'm wondering if a local lightning strike in the area has raised the earth potential to everyone house and gone up your vga cable into the unit and taken out these devices.
I had the same problem with my LTP227W and it is also about 4 years old. Took it in to be fixed and they found it was two capacitors in the power supply. Parts for this TV are not available anymore but they were able to repair the power supply. The TV works fine now. Hopefully I can get another four years out of this. Repair cost was $150.
Yup I would tend to agree it's probably the PSU... It shouldn't be too expensive to fix, probably an hour or so labour and either parts OR a complete new PSU, in saying that ensure ya take it to a reputable service place.. and get a "quote" B4 allowing to continue.
