Un55js8500fxza - blinking red lights, no picture... help!
Hi everyone. I’m hoping to get some help. I was watching my TV turned it off, and then turned it back on and the red status link was blinking and there is no picture or sound any longer. This TV is only about 3.5 years old! It is a Samsung and the model number is Un55js8500fxza.
I’ve read the other troubleshooting guides and have tried the hard reset by pressing the power button, unplugging the power steps… and no improvement. I’m looking for some (selfishly) personal troubleshooting steps. I know next to nothing, but I’m really of the mind that “it doesn’t work now, so I can’t break it any further… right??”. I have taken the rear panel off to get a look at the components, and nothing like bulging capacitors or a burnt board stick out to me. Any and all advice or troubleshooting would be really appreciated.
Is this a good question?
