Question about Samsung LN-S3241D 32 in.LCD HDTV
It seems to happen after i use my xbox 360 on HD, play for a few hours works fine, then watch some normal tv then turn off and go to bed, get up next morning and the tv will not switch on properly the standby light just blinks repeatedly. this has has happend 3 times within 2 months. i have checked my tv for overheating problems and it is not the case as it hs plenty of space behind and above it, and i only play a few hours not day and night, and there is no radiator in the area of the tv so overheating can not be the problm beforem u all say it :).. the shop repairing it have changed mainboards and diodes and it still not fixed they dont have a clue!!! can anyone shed some light before i exchange the tv for a new one due to it still being in warranty (thank god)!!! but will this happen again on same model?????
Just found out through my own experience that LCD tv's can overheat when hooked up to the xbox 360 or wii. In my case, after many hours of play on either console, the heat generated is increased to the point that the tv will not turn back on till the fans have cooled the unit. The cooling can take hours depending on how hot the tv components got. In my case I removed the heat shield to allow heat to escape more rapidy. This worked in a matter of minutes and my tv was operational once again. My solution is to find a tv that will not be affected by the increased heat that these game consoles generate. My gripe is that these consoles are created to utilize HDTV. I have had my HDTV for 6 years and never had a problem till I hooked it up to the xbox 360 or wii. Never tested the playstation. I'm sure there are HDTV's that can handle these consoles. I would research and find out what specific brands are not having problems. I know you think it's not your tv but ask yourself if these problems occur when you don't use your game consoles. In my case this is the only time I have overheating issues, however, the game console was on for long hours at a time. I truly believe if you purchase the same tv and hook your 360 to it you will encounter the same problems.
Hope this helps.

I'm afraid i have no solution for you, but i thought it might help to know that i have the same problem, mine will sometimes take up to half an hour to turn on, while i have to sit and listen to the clicking sound, and watch the power led flash on and off! YOU ARE NOT ALONE!! sorry i couldn't help though.
