I don't think the change in settings has caused this issue, can you please tell me when it works; does it play fine ? I mean the picture and audio is ok ?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Picture and audio is ok it just takes along time to come on

Expert:  KevinWhiteJA replied 2 years ago.
OK, the most likely cause is the power supply of the unit has failed, may be few caps on the power supply board will need replacement...this is a common issue with few Samsung models, you can call Samsung and check with them if they can provide a free repair... let me know how it goes..Thanks
