TV does not power on, but I see a blue light.

Ok so the Samsung PN50A530S2F TV is plugged in and I see a blue light yet when I attempt to power on the TV there is no blue light, sound, or picture. Is this repairable? Thanks in advance!

rcmashop where do you see the blue light? If you can, unplug your set and remove the back. take some pictures of the board arrangement and the boards itself. Post those with your question. that will help us to see what you see. It is possible that this could be fixed by repalcing/repairing the power board. To add images use this guide Adding images to an existing question

Also, can you double check your model number? It does not show up in my manuals at all. Is it possible that your model is a PN50A530S2F?


the blue light is the stand by light. also you were correct as to the model number being PN50A530S2F. I just check the main board and the RLY802, RTE801, and RTE802 are burnt. should i change the whole board?


can you see it? do i change the whole board?



may be not. Can you zoom out of this and give us a view of the whole board. Just trying to see if it is just those capse or if anything else happened. Do you have access to soldering equipment and are you handy enough to do a repair?


ok here is a zoomed out pic. yes i have a soldering kit and im confident lol. thank you

rcmashop start off by checking the "No Power" troubleshooting as outlined here:

Update (07/31/2016)

RTE801 and RTE 802 are both SCK801 series thermistors. Download the datasheet from here. The relays are of type SDT-S-112D. Right now I'd focus on the thermistors since the melting of the relay could have originated with the thermistor. If you can get those parts I'd try and repair the board. If not then you can always check at for a replacement board, or have them do the repair. I am sure you figured out that you are looking for a BN44-00222A power board.
