Facing TV Problems? Ask a TV Technician.
Hi Margaret and welcome to JustAnswer,Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...Initially, even if the Samsung would be "...switching on & off...", would there still be some indication of power such as a standby light or even a blinking LED light?
Based on the above and if problem persist with any/all sources, it would then appear to be an internal hardware issue or more particularly a low or intermittent internal power supply voltage and/or the Samsung is kicking in auto-protect mode.
The above would require that the unit be opened up for visual inspection, voltage/continuity/resistance checks, confirm faults and effect repairs.
Are you then considering a DIY (do-it-yourself) repair approach? If yes, do you have access to and familiar with a multi-meter and even perhaps a soldering iron?
I understand and if no DIY, options are:
Please post back how you would want to approach this and/or should additional information be needed.
Again I understand Margaret and it would appear to be more to your advantage.
