OK, please unplug the unit...after 4-5 minutes plug it back and simultaneously press and hold the on/off button on the TV...now if you see them flashing please count and tell me how many times does it flash

OK, are you willing to repair this yourself ? 5 flashes indicate a problem with the main board that might replacement

Customer:

not something I would be confident to do Is it an expensive fix or cheaper to write the TV off ?

Usually it is either the Y main or X main... depending on the part that is bad it will cost around £110 including parts...you can contact Samsung or a local repair shop to get repair quote
