I have a 32 inch Samsung smart TV and following a recent power

Resolved Question:

I have a 32 inch Samsung smart TV and following a recent power cut it stopped working when the power came back on. Been reading about the power surge problems Samsung have had so bought a new PSU and have just replaced it. However it still doesn't fire up. The screen does now go blue as if it is nearly going to do it but not quite. So a bit more sign of life but still not there. Could the fault be somewhere else

Hi Shahid, no it was a power cut. All TVs were plugged in and only the Samsung died - it's the newest and most expensive in the house. Samsung useless as everyone on the Internet has reported.
Model number is
UE32F4500AKXXU

Thanks Tony for the info.
It seems power cut/ surge volts took two boards in TV at same time, PSU and main board which is very odd.
Please get the part number written on label pasted at main board of TV and search/ google it for price and stock info to order it and swap it in TV which will help to resolve the problem, please make sure you are getting exact/ identical main board as different version/ part number board may not work in TV as you can view different version/ part number main boards at following link for this one model...
