Blinking red light, doesnt turn on
My samsung tv wasnt turning on. The red light is just blinking
Is this a good question?
mervinrs, this could be a multitude of things. the constant blinking (no pattern) is indicative of an error with the power management system. The quickest way to test is by disconnecting the main board from the power supply board, plug in the power supply board, after that you should see some lights in the screw holes if the power supply is good. If you do not, then you can either move on to the mainboard. Worst case scenario would be a bad panel, which can also cause this error. It might help if you post some images of the back of your TV with the cover removed as well as images of the different boards. Use this guide for that. Of course, a bad capacitor is always a possibility as well:-)
Well, the answer to my problems was the main board and t-com board. But I ended up changing all 3 board because I purchased the whole kit.so now I have spare parts just in case. Go to http://www.shopjimmy.com/?gclid=CjwKCAjw...
Look up the model it usually runs for about $100
Good luck, hope it works for you.glad to help.
I am having the same problem. It was working fine before I left for vacation. Now that I’m back it won’t turn on. I press the power button, then the red light flickers when I press the power button, but the screen doesn’t turn on.
The thing is, I got my TV less than two months ago. I am not tech savvy enough to remove and replace parts. The tv was a gift and I won’t be able to return it. Any thoughts on what to do? Thank you!
NOW, the tv turns on.. works fine until i switch it to my xbox (HDMI) or even my satellite box (HDMI) the screen goes fuzzy, making loud screeching noise, shuts off, and repeats until it goes back to normal. one time it even started smoking.
