I know, I made a mistake when I copied and pasted the situation from an email I sent to the vendor I did buy it from. Do you have any input on the problem with the unit?

Hello and sorry you're having problems.
The pop sound and blinking of the power light on this set indicates a hardware failure internally. This isn't something that can be corrected via any settings or adjustments, and is typically caused by a fault on the power supply board within the set.
The popping is common with a shorting capacitor, regulator, or in some cases one of the sustain boards has failed. Given this set is still within Samsung's one year warranty, you would need to contact them directly for repairs.
The vendor you purchased the set from can only honor en exchange within 30 days from the date of purchase- and beyond that it's the manufacturer's responsibility to repair the set under warranty.
SAMSUNG Customer Care Center. Tel: 1-***-***-****.
If you need further assistance let me know. Please do not forget to click a POSITIVE RATING before you go- as it's how I am credited for my work. You can follow up at any time, at no additional cost.
