samsung tv wont turn on.....clicking sound in back of tv.
I would recommend calling 800-SAMSUNG to have your unit serviced. Unfortunately, there isn't any troubleshooting tips I can offer.
Did you get your problem fixed??
Hi I have the same problem with a 32" led Samsung TV with only a few months of use, and would like to know if you got you problem resolved. My email is email@example.com, would really appreciate any info. Thanks
SAME PROBLEM, Clicking sound and no picture
Over the past several months, this problem started with the tv turning itself back on after being shut off. I thought it had to do with the cable box or my settings until now. Tonight got home and tv power was on with clicking noise, but no picture. Tried unplugging, rebooting DVR box, and nothing different. Perhaps only the clicking is a little quieter or maybe I am just used to the sound now. My tv is not under warranty.
Honestly Samsung HDTech, both on this forum and on the Samsung troubleshooting on the website, these calling for service comments are highly annoying. A quick search has revealed that this is a common problem. Instead of telling people to call service, how about addressing the problem with a fix? There is no point commenting on a forum if this is your only suggestion.
This should not be happening on a regular basis on such an expensive product. I will likely replace rather than repair. And if I can't come to a better solution than calling for service, I will replace with a brand other than Samsung and tell everyone I know about this issue.
Has anyone actually called a service tech and resolved the problem? What were the costs??
SAME PROBLEM, Clicking sound and no picture
To directly answer your question, I'm not a member of the service team. I don't have the "privy" to service related issues. I can help with a lot of things. The OP's post regarding going in and opening his own unit is not something I can discuss.
That said, if you have an issue, call it in to service. They can help more than I can here, since I'm unable to open service tickets. If that doesn't resolve the issue to your satisfaction, I often reach out to have cases reviewed, and I'd be willing to do that here if you post your transaction number from your call.
There is a lot of good done with our participation. Look around the competitors forums. Several don't participate at all. The number of questions I get in the average week or two often surpass their overall total participation. I think it speaks well to listen to the customer, and even though that may not guarantee instant results, we are listening and watching closely what our customers have to say, including what you posted above.
I did call Samsung. The repairman they sent said he had checked with Samsung and there were no postings about what the problem actually was. That's when I went online and found out there are those out there who do know. So why doesn't Samsung? Not good business. I am now in the process of researching other brands. I will return the Samsung tv's. I would also like to say that I called them at least four times where I got the response that they had never heard of this problem before. It wasn't until they realised I wasn't going to back down that they sent a repairman who didn't have a clue about what the real problem was.
Good for you!
I sold my dead Samsung on Craig's List, with a link to the problem and how to fix it. Can get at least $100 for it. I have a Sony now, like it a lot. Despite the fact that I loved my Samsung while it worked, won't buy one again. TVs should last longer than 3 years.
At least yours lasted for a little while. I tried three times in three months with the same type of tv. I have finally excepted I am not going to find one without an issue. Let me know how the Sony goes. I am not sure what to buy. How does the picture compare to Samsung?
having same problem,
having same problem, you said you had the link to the problem and how to fix it!!
would love to know how!
The issue might be
The old BAD CAPS problem but Samsung has been performing one time free replacements. You can google BAD CAPS if you want but why do this if the maker will change them for us?
thanks, they are sending someone out to look at our tv friday!
thanks for the help!!
Either way, folk like to read what happens next.
Same issue, BN55 model Samsung TV
My tv is a 1 and a couple of months old. Came home TV is no longer working, continuous clicking but not coming on. Can someone please help
TWO SUGGESTIONS. DO THIS NOW!
1. Register your product at samsung.com and you might get 3 more months warranty. Then it's no problem at all.
2. After step one, if the registration fails, call it in anyway. Always get the TRANSACTION NUMBER from the call.
