I have a Samsung Series 4-450 flat screen television. As I

I have a Samsung Series 4-450 flat screen television. As I was watching it this morning, there was a click (I thought electric power to the house had been lost) and the screen went black. There is a light on the front of the tv (a small one next to a larger one that appears to be the light indicating the tv is on just below the screen) that is flashing steadily. Electrical power was not lost. I unplugged the system for 30 seconds to see if the outlet was okay and it is working. I cannot turn the tv on or off either on the cabinet or using the remote/DirecTV remote. When I reconnect the system to the wall outlet, I still have the black screen and the flashing red light. Over the past 3-5 months I have had some problem with being able to turn the tv on after it has been turned off. I've checked the remote (batteries,etc) and there doesn't appear to be anything wrong (it turns on the DirecTV box with no problem). I've checked the user manual but can't find any troubleshooting information that matches the problem. Do you have any suggestions what the problem might be?

I have a Denon Surround Receiver AVR-2311ci. I purchased it

I have a Denon Surround Receiver AVR-2311ci. I purchased it in 2001. It shuts itself off. My TV, which has DirectTV on it, won't work. It used to work fine, up until now.JA: What's the make and model of your tv, and can you guesstimate how old it is?Customer: Samsung. I bought it at the same time. The TV says "Check signal cable". It was working last night, but when I turned it on today, it doesn't work. It looks like the TV itself is working okay. I don't know what the model is. It says 1080p, srs, dolby, dts and something that's too small for me to read. It's a very large flat screen TV installed in a built in entertainment center. The components are all sitting in a cabinet below. I leave the cabinet doors open to prevent any possible overheating.JA: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?Customer: Just today. My sister checked to make sure everything was plugged in.JA: Anything else you want the electronics expert to know before I connect you?Customer: I'll check to see if one of the other TVs in the house is working. brb...
