    I have the exact same problem turning on and off several times before it stays on.

    I am having the same problem with my TV and having an issue getting this across to Samsung. The last thing I want is to pay for some guy to come out and troubleshoot 2-3 times before the problem is fixed.



    Samsung is saying they have never heard of this issue, which I find hard to believe. Can someone suggest to me to what I need to explain to get this problem fixed on the first time?

    I had the exact same problem. Unit had about a month left in-warranty, so I had repair service come out. They replaced the entire power supply module. The unit worked correctly for about five months, now it is doing the same thing.



    I sure would like to know which are the deficient capacitors and the replacement capacitors values so I can get this done correctly once and for all.

    MINE DOES IT FOREVER UNLESS I TURNN ALL THE INPUT DEVICES OFF, IT WAS A REFURBISHED ONE FROM TIGER DIRECT SO I HAVE NO WARRENTY, DOES ANYONE KNOW WHICH CAPS TO REPLACE AND WHAT SIZE TOO USE?

    I have the same problem. It started doing it on the component input when I tried to use my Xbox 360. Now it does it when I'm trying to turn on the T.V. which is on an HDMI input. It rapidly flips on and off multiple times until such time as it decides to stay on. I cringe... because it's out of warranty.

    It all started with the set turning off and on 10 or so times, then finally the set would turn on but no picture or on screen commands such as volume control, tv sources etc., the set was on but no picture or anything else for that matter. A "Samsung" technician came out today for $60 and said "I need to go online and research this more", so I'm still waiting to see what the problem is.

    Mine just clicks, while the "LED" & the "Standby" lights alternate back & forth for 60 ~ 90 seconds. Then all 3 lights flash without clicking. Tech came out and wiggled connections & it came on twice, then nothing.
    They took it to their shop & told me 2 boards (1 which was replaced 8 months ago) were bad & would cost $1300 to fix. Samsung refuses to help. (said "there's nothing we can do, it's out of warranty")

    How much was this repair for the Capacitor? I had mine fixed once while it was still under warranty, it got a new Secondary power supply, and a new power supply, then started flipping on and off again shortly there after. Now it won't even come on. I hate samsung.

Just got mine fixed, it was an undersized Capacitor that needs to be replaced, call Samsung get local repair to come out replace and it took less than an hour for repair to be complete, working perfect every time now, some had to have two caps replaced

have your unit power supply check, maybe some cold solder or leaky capacitor is the culprit.

T.V. Clicking for 10 minutes before it turns on


Scart leads or scart adapter would never cause such problems. The problem will be in the TV itself. You need to check the power-supply unit at the main-boar. First look for visible cracks at the other side of the board, then you might need to check all the low voltage capacitors at the power unit. In most cases 100 Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} µFx16V located just next to IC causes such a problem. Only one TV out of 430 had actually defective IC itself, and TV was stil working after 6.26mins. So in your case I'd check low voltage part of the power unit.

LG TV Turns itself off


Sounds like it could be a poor connection in the power plug or a ' dry joint ' on the power board, if it's the latter, it will respond to light thumping at the side of the tv. If that's the case it needs resoldering by a technician..
good luck !

Mitsubishi Projection TV Model # VS-50502


The power supply section is having trouble.
Common possibilities are:
- Convergences amps have failed overloading the supply
- High-voltage section (flyback transformer) has failed
(happens sooner or later, about 8 years typical))
- Power surge has popped the power input circuit.
(Fuse, rectifier diodes, turn-on relay etc)
- One of a hundred of electrolytic capacitors has failed short overloading the supply. They dry out with age, are cheap to replace, but hard to find which one it is.
- Or any of many other possibilities.

In short, you need a experianced tech to troubleshoot this.

This set has a modification that needs to be done. It will also start turning on by itself and changing channels rapidly. It's two weeks old. Take it back to the Retailer or if that is not an option contact LG at 1-800-243-0000 to get a local servicer in your area.

Picture tube doesn't turn off


The power relay driver or the relay itself is bad. Its sticking closed so the voltage is there for the power supply but the micro has turned off the tuner.
