Samsung LE37B551A6W Standby problem

by lesta_le3 / July 16, 2010 8:01 AM PDT

Hi I have got a Samsung Lcd Tv model no LE37B551A6w that's got a very unusual standby problem, after I have watched tv/played ps3 for a few hours and then turn the tv on standby, most of the time the standby light goes out after about 5 mins and then i cannot get it back on unless i unplug it from the wall for a hour, also if i watch tv for a few hours,then standby,then unplug from the wall it still has to have a hour long break before i can plug it back in the socket to continue watching.
Have had this open and checked for signs of bulging caps but none to be seen.
Hope someone can help cos it feels more like the tv controls me rather than me controlling it.

It may be an issue with the power supply or something internal. Unfortunately, without being able to inspect the unit, it's difficult to diagnose. I'd recommend having a technician take a look at the unit to see if he can find the source of the problem.
