Samsung LN46A750 Beeping! Please Help!!

by Hondategra / January 5, 2009 10:47 AM PST

Hello, this is my first post on this site.

I got a 46" LCD TOC for X-Mas and after a week and a half, i come home and the Tv is on when i get home. I try to turn it off and the remote is not working. The front panel is lit red, and is non responsive. I unplug the Tv and plug it back in. It starts to work for a few minutes, then makes a few beeps, and the front panel begins to light up from the power button up to the source. When i push any button on the remote the tv has a red light that flashes and beeps. I called Samsung support, and they suggested a firmware update. I preformed the latest firmware found on there site. Tv shuts off, and then powers back on. Everything seems good then about 3-5 mins later the tv beeps and goes into a endless cycle of power on , then power off. Remote beeps any button pushed. I have a service request put in, but wanted to check on here to make sure its not an easy fix. Looks like they will not come for a week. Please help out if you can.

I just wanted to add, the Tv turns on when plugged in. Not sure if that is normal. I would think that you would plug in and then turn on. But just wanted to let you all know that. Also Tried a few other things last night. I have a Harmony Remote, took the batteries out, seems to be working, but made a few beeps then went away. But i woke up this morning to it on again. And turned it off, and then about 5 mins later i heard the samsung start up tone from the kitchen. So i guess its still having issues. I really hope that this is an easy fix. I have had so much love for samsung through the years, but now my first big tv buy from them is horrible. Please help me out if anyone has some light to shine on this subject.

I apologize for the delay in my response. I've been in meetings and at iCES this week and I'm struggling to catch up. Your patience is appreciated.

It sounds like there may be some interference triggering the touch-buttons on the front of the panel.

I would definitely call service and schedule a repair, as none of these issues seem to be what I'd consider "normal operation". It's hard to diagnose these things, but hopefully we can get a solution for you relatively quickly. Make a claim at 800-SAMSUNG and schedule a service tech.

Keep me posted.
