Question

I have a 4 year old Samsung LCD TV, model number LN40B530P7F

It will not turn on after trying the 10 minute shutdown to reset it to factory settings, Is there another way to resolve the problem and get it to power back on?

Did you try a new power cord?

And be sure to not use the remote at first. A poor soul was really wound up and I lucked out to be nearby. I walked up to the set to unplug it, wait a bit by testing the AC cord worked on something else then back to the TV and tapped on power button on the set.

Turns out the remote batteries were very old. They reset the TV in hopes of curing the remote troubles.

Thanks I

I will try that. Will any power cord that fits the port do the trick?

Sorry

But since this could be a non-USA model, I can't tell. But I've used many others.

no luck

tried another pwer cord but no luck. If the set has the issue referenced in the class action suit, any idea if it can it be repaired for less than $500?

Sorry but I unaware of such suits.

And as I'm more of an embedded software and hardware person I don't work on any TV unless it's mine or the office's.

I do read BAD CAP replacements are often done for free if it's the right model however if the owner delayed until the set failed then cap replacement rarely brings it back.

That is, I read nothing in your posts to suggest it was that other issue.
