Second opinion] - I have a samsung 64 inch plasma
that made a loud pop and shut down. I have bypassed surge protector and still same problem. red light blinks two short then one long and it also makes a light click sound every 8 seconds or so when plugged in, like it is trying to turn on.
JA: What's the make and model of your tv, and has turning it on been a problem in the past?
Customer: Samsung PN64D550C1F. no problems in past at all. just now that it made that loud pop
JA: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?
Customer: no. the screen does not work at all. the only thing that is on is the little red light and the click noise
JA: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?
Customer: two nights ago while watching tv. everything was normal, then suddenly POP and nothing since then. We were doing nothing but sitting and watching
JA: Anything else you want the TV expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: can't think of anything. I actually have it on the floor now with the back off though
