TV Repair Questions? Ask a TV Technician
How long have you had the set for and when did the problem occur?
Are there any signs of life at all on the set (power light lit or blinking, click when power is pressed, etc.)?
Thank you for the reply.
Can you tell me how old the set is?
Please disconnect the set from AC power, then press and hold the power button on the TV itself (not the remote), for 10 seconds. After another minute, plug the set back in and press power once. Do you still have the same problem?
The problem is an internal failure in the TV.
What you're having is the infamous Samsung capacitor failure. They were using sub-par caps in the power supply, which failed prematurely. Samsung has been covering this failure for all of their customers even outside of warranty.
This is the most common mode of failure for these sets.
The capacitors are located on the power board inside the set, where the AC cord plugs into. Unfortunately there is no sequence of buttons or reset you can perform to get the set working again.
Please contact Samsung at the number below to have them send a tech out to fix the problem free of charge:
