The home power went out during a thunderstorm. Since then the Tv will not turn off unless unplugged. It make a loud hissing noise and only has a blank screen. None of the buttons work. Is this fixable? Is this worth fixing?
Sounds like a power surge likely followed the outage- or maybe you were actually hit by lightning- and since this set did not have a built-in kill-switch (circuit breaker) it could have very well caused some significant damage. Check the internal fuses, if they are blown, chances are, so is the rest of the set. For the cost of repairing something as over-reaching as this, I'd be looking for something new (And be sure to buy a quality surge protector, so this does not occur again!)

You may have fried one of your control boards in your TV. Sometimes these can be easy to fix. I recommend you take your unit to a repair shop and get a quote to repair it. Be sure to get a quote and don't just tell them to repair it. It may be cheaper to buy a new TV! Sometimes they will charge you just to troubleshoot your TV but that should be expected.
The board where the a/c power cord go into it.That ur power supply board,that board is dead,replaced this board.U will have ur power back.Tries websites like Shopjimmy.com,Ebay.com to buy a reburbish power supply board for the replcement.
if it is new it should be under warranty,if not ,yes there may be a fuse inside,on the board where the plug is connected,taking it apart will void the warranty and can be dangerous .dont try this unless you have experience
The set is in protective shutdown because a problem was detected. The 5 blink code indicates that the problem circuit. In this case it is the blanking circuit. Were there any indications of problems prior to the storm? If not, I'll need to lok up this one for the specifics. Do you intend to repair this yourself?
Let me know and I'll provide the details.
Thank you!!!! Our power was off due to new transformers being installed in the area and we had no clue how to fix this. I called around and no one seemed to know the answer (not even Samsung, who only wanted to tell me my TWO year old tv was out of warranty),so I tried this and it worked perfectly!!! You saved me a bundle! Thanks!
