Re: Samsung 46" lcd hdtv
Hello carp girl,
This may denote a proble in either your switching powers supply or your Horizontal section derived high voltage power supply. These are both very dangerous sections in your television. My next question is important; do you have a background in electronics? If not I would not advise you working on this problem yourself and that you take the TV to a repair shop for servicing. If you do have some background in electronics, I would like for you to make the following obeservations:
Is the set newly purchased or refurbished/old?
What was happening prior to the set going out?
Are there any sounds coming from the set when you turn it on "like clicking or buzzing"?
Has the set been dropped or had fallen in any way off of what it was sitting on?
Was the set plugged in during a storm?
These are some questions to develop some background into what may have happened which lead up to the trouble you are reporting.

Press and hold TV, then OK at the same time.
Let go of TV and OK, top buttons should quickly blink red then stop
press the code 1019 then hit the bottom right button marked ENTER or OPTIONS
Remote should now work with tv.
To control volume and power at the same time...
Press and hold STB and OK at the same time, let go, red blinking up top
enter the code 977
STB should blink red a few times.
Hit STB, see if TV volume adjusts
Hit POWER. see if both STB (Set Top Box) turns off and TV turns off.
All should be good.
If both TV and STB do not turn on/off, repeat the process for the code where you enter 977
Try using a different outlet, the outlet or the tv may have been damaged in the surge. In the case of the tv contact the manufacturer and see if it's still under warranty. There may also be a way to 'reset' the tv by holding the power button down, try looking in the manual or calling customer support. In the future use a surge protector, many of today's electronics are still sensitive to power surges, older tv's were more resilliant than today's in this regard.
