Question

My Samsung LE32A456C2D tv, keeps turning off.

by edved61 / January 19, 2013 9:35 PM PST

I have read previous threads re: this problem but I can't find out on my tv where the lamp is housed so I can reset it. If anyone has the same tv and the same problem, could you advise? Many thanks.

Hi I was told there is a amp?light in the tv and if i could get to it then I was to readjust it! Is that not the case with this tv then?

So if its not that, do you know why it is turning on and off regularly? it has turned iteslf off again tonight, that was an hour ago and its still not on? sometimes it will switch of and come straight back on again. Any helpful hints would be good. As you can probably tell tv's are not my forte! lol

There's so few clues that I can't offer a good guess.

I only know what you tell. My guess is the TV could be in some hutch or enclosure and is over heating. Or the owner didn't know about "canned air" to keep the vents clear every year.

If that doesn't help then ask Samsung what to do next.

I wrote about a few things that you should be able to respond to. You should be able to tell me if it is in such mentioned and you knew to use the product I mentioned.

After that, you find the service manual and follow the charts.
