    Not to sound like an echo here, but my TV is doing the same thing.

    Red light on, the 'turing on' sound is there, but there is no picture or sound.

    Red light mystery. Man I have the same problem. The local repairman kept my tv for about 3 months, said the high voltage transformer needed to be replaced. The part # on the tv is FFA61513L but could not find it. He called Samsung and got a equal part # which is BP26-00015A. The problem is the part takes 6 weeks to come in, if they have any. He said the part has been discontinued.

    Hi Chris. I have the same problem. The TV just went off on it's on. The button is red but won't come on. The repair shop has had my TV for 2 mths now and they are having a hard time getting support and the part needed. I have a 32" LCD series ZXPro Series model LCT32Z5TAP. What did you do to resolve your issue?

I had and l32n series tv with the same problem, im an electromecanical engineer. the problem can be solved by opening the tv, and on the power supply board, on the upper right there are 3 or 4 capacitors, brown or blue, change which ever looks like its about to blow up. you can tell if the top of it in NOT flat. those that still have the flat top are fine. check the voltage and replace it with one that has 5volts more than the one you took out. im located in NY if you want me to do this for you reach me at

Try recycling the power, Unplugg the power cord wait at least 2 mins ant then plug back in. Some times by turning it off an on rapidly will cause the microprocessor to lock up or freeze. Much like a computer does when you have to reboot it..

Sounds like a power supply issue. Does the power indicator light up? Can you hear a click when the power button is pressed?
