Customer Question

We have a Samsung 50 inch tv about 6 years old. Just now the picture went out and the blue button on the front is making the same noise like it does if you turn it off over and over again. The power button doesn't turn it off either, I had to unplug it. What could be wrong

I am sorry this has happened, very frustrating, OK with plasma they can develop issues with the scan boards they can go short circuit and the set will then go through a cycle routine (very fast) and this is the situation you have now, the thing is that checks will need to be made with a meter and the short circuit identified, the board ordered and replaced, now I can help you with that if you are practical and can use a meter, I will provide all the relevant info for you to do the work yourself please let me know.

This may appear daunting to you but if you can use small tools and a meter (in this case) then my help should get you through fixing this yourself.

If you are not comfortable with that then you will need a tech <clcik

I am sorry its nothing easier
