Samsung TV Stopped Working?

Exactly (to the day) 2 years after purchasing it, our Samsung 46 inch TV went out. The satellite TV box is fine, but the picture had "hung" with the weather, so we decided to turn off the TV until the weather passed. Nothing else was affected, just the satellite picture. When we turned it all back on the TV will not come on. We have a red light (power button) but no picture.


We have unplugged, replugged, moved the plug but still no picture. The Blu-ray is fine too. Any ideas? Do you know anyone who wants a 46 inch TV with no picture that is only 2 years old? We have it all on a surge protector!

Sometimes, you can still extend a warranty, even after 2 years is up. So that might be worth a try. We have done that with an appliance that busted shortly after 2 years. We didn't mention it was broken when calling, they also didn't asked. We waited a few days and then called in the warranty repair.


It could be the screen has gone dead, or maybe the power supply was damaged during the storm. If that's the case, I am surprised the surge protector didn't help, I would definitely look for a more robust one. I know they are not all created equal. So sorry to hear about your TV.

Check with your satellite provider. Quite possibly there are 'buttons to push' on the remote or re-entry of info. from the satellite which may have been interrupted during the weather event. Blessings.
