You will still need to use your SAMSUNG remote to switch the source inputs since I do not beleive the DIRECT-TV remote has full function of the SAMSUNG remote.

The issue has been resolved. I removed the back of the TV (pretty easy actually) by laying a blanket over the kitchen table and placing the TV face down. I started with the power supply as an obvious beginning. Both fuses on the board tested fine. And touched up every solder joint with a hot soldering iron in case the problem was a cold solder joint. After this painstaking venture, I performed another visual inspection and noticed a capacitor that had a thin black X on the top of the can. This is a common sign the capacitor has over heated. I located a replacement for $1.20, installed, and successfully powered up the TV. I have had no problems since.
Oh, yeah, I also paid $120 for a BN44-00150A replacement power supply, plus overnight shipping. It actually arrived three weeks later. That was two weeks and six days after I fixed the power supply myself.

Unplug for 30 seconds from it's power source and then try it again. If that doesn't work, call Samsung for further troubleshooting and have your model number and serial number handy. Please be prepared to tell them how long the line is.

Hi, I had the same issue for the past few days on my Samsung Blu-Ray player which has InternetTV. The only way I could fix it was by doing a factory reset of the device and the set everything up again.

Most likely failed capacitors in the power supply. I recently had the same problem with my 26 month old Samsung LN46A750. Samsung paid for the installation of an upgraded power supply board.

Just search for the site named Electro-help. It has details about repair. I assumes that you're somewhat sound in electronics. You can get details there. Search for the site by Google

Can't say this for sure, but if it's a power supply problem, take the TV apart and access the power supply (unplug it, of course). Look at all of the capacitors (the little round cans with 2 wires either coming out the bottom or one coming out on either end). If they appear to be bulging (you can tell a good one from a bad one very easily), they're most likely bad and many times replacing those will solve your power supply problem.

This can be one of two problems. The backlight inverter board is bad # BN44-00235B <or A $60-80
Or one of your backlights is bad/broken. Not a easy repair. Single lamp is about $16-25 whole kit $150. But finding a great tech who can or will take the screen/light box apart to do it will be the biggest task. Takes about 3 hrs to do. And if you do NOT know what you are doing,you will damage the screen.
Then you just throw it away. But if your lucky, it might just be a bad connection. If it comes one after it goes off. But if it just flashes on for a couple seconds then does not come back on, Most likely bad backlight/or inverter. It goes in to protection mode.I have seen in a couple of Sony's it being the T-con board "LCD control"board do the same. $60-125
I wish I could give you better news. It is not easy to tell the problem on that without testing out each lamp "15-20 of them w/a lamp tester" or checking out each transformer on the inverter board. Verry time consuming. This is why I push the Extended Warenty. LCD's still have bugs to weed out. Plasma's are even worse.

You have bad caps.on the power supply. They are under rated, 10volt insted of 16volt or more. about $2-3 each. usualy takes 4-6 of them. Or replace the whole power supply. But you will have the same problem in a couple of years. Best bet is to have the bad caps. replaced with the right voltage rateing,and you will not have to worry about it happening again. New power supply is...
BN44-00168A About $120 used-180new cheeper to repair.

This LCD might have a defective power supply. I would suggest to open the back cover and inspect the power supply for swelling/bulging capacitors that are located near CN801.

This is usually from your backlight Inverter/Power Supply Unit, You have to change this board to get it fixed again. When you open up the back of your TV it's going to be a white long board on the right side of your TV. To get one you can visit here BN44 00264B Samsung Power Supply Backlight Inverter

  • No video, Power light is on or blinking.
  • TV is making a clicking noise.

  • Screen is very dim or flickers.
