Customer Question
Trying to fix my...

Trying to fix my Samsung plasma tv. Won’t turn on and led does 2 flashes 5 times. Have already replaced power supply and X board. Wondering if the issue was the main board all along. Samsung came out once before but it is no longer under warranty

Technician's Assistant: Is your Samsung TV connected to a surge protector or power strip?

Yes

Technician's Assistant: Have you tried to power reset your TV (unplugging the power for 1-2 minutes, then plugging it back in)?

Yep. It was off for 3 days until just now after putting new power supply in

If replacing the power supply board did not work then the main board is suspect and will need to be replaced.
