Samsung LN32A450 Power Light blinking, but does not power up

Jul 12, 2010 1:56AM PDT

When I woke up today I noticed that my TV power was blinking, when I tried turning it on it would not turn on.
I believe it could be some sort of surge that damaged the TV, even though I have APC Surge Protector I guess they don't work.

I believe it's been over a year since I've had my TV, but I was wondering if there will be any luck on getting any help before I open it up myself to check if the capacitors have been blown and replacing these myself?

I woke up at around 8AM today, I went to bed at around 3AM last night my TV was still working fine.

Just called Samsung and they won't do anything for me because it might be over a year. Can't seem to find my receipt atm, probably won't matter though.

Oh well, I'll try to fix this TV myself. If anything I'll buy a Sony/Panasonic hopefully they'll last longer then just a year..

Samsung's hopeless, I am not.

Fixed my TV myself, thanks to the board that helped me out.
With no experience in soldering, I probably did a better job then they ever would.
