greetings

Usually if the front panel lights flash a certain number of times, it tells the repair people what might be the issue.

To repair or to replace ...

regards

my Samsung LCD (~4 years old so out of warranty) wouldn't turn on. Contacted Sumsung, they directed me to a local repair shop, was $50 buck for an estimate then a week later passed over a $100 more and got my TV back.

Cheaper than buying new.

I have just experience the same with my Samsung plasma that is just 13 months old, one month past the warranty. The units makes a clicking sound and the red light flashes on the TV a few times, then nothing.

I suspect there is no point in wasting time with Samsung. Any good local repair shops in lower mainland to fix this issue?

An update.

Even though my TV is just outside the warranty period (one year), I called Samsung to see if they knew if there were any serious issues with this model. The tech person said it sounded like a power supply issue. He got me to take the TV off the wall, unplug the power cord and put th3 cord back in. Reluctantly, while rolling my eyes, I did just that. Surprise, surprise, the TV came back on. I did not think it was a power cord issue since a red light would blink once or twice when I tried turning it on. I guess there is some residual power in some caps, or something, that enabled the red LED to flash.

It is working just fine, but I do not understand how the power cord come off. The TV is very close to a wall on a wall mount.

Cheers,

Note: Cycling the power with the power cord, will cause a hard cold reset.
