LCD TV Power Up Issue

by lwmcallister / November 23, 2010 1:30 AM PST

Purchased LN46A650A1F 12/08.

Yesterday when powering up the unit it ran thru repeated power up / power down sequences (yes complete with "clicking"). Eventually, the set comes on and appears to work normally.

Contacted Samsung via email and despite the fact that they didn't understand the issue, suggested the following:

1. Unplug the set. 2. Push and hold the power up button on the set for 15 seconds. 3. Plug in the set and power up.

After I did this the same issue except the power up / power down ("clicking") occured slower...still came up after a while but this repeted cycling, can't be good.

I'm sorry to hear that you're having this issue.

I'd recommend having your television inspected by a technician. Unfortunately, I can't diagnose televisions without inspecting them, and a technician would be able to identify and repair the issue.

In the U.S., you can reach them at 800-SAMSUNG.

Probably a Capacitor problem

This is probably a common capacitor problem with Samsung TVs. Call Samsung and mention the capacitor problem. I have a similar problem on a 3 year old LCD, and they offered a one-time fix for the capacitors at no charge. If it turns out not to be the capacitors, there may be a charge to fix.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
