I have a Samsung TV, Model UE48H8000ST. When I turn my TV

Resolved Question:

I have a Samsung TV, Model UE48H8000ST. When I turn my TV off, and return, say, 10 minutes later and turn it on I get a blank screen, with the audio still running. I usually have to wait approximately 40 minutes to turn the TV on before things are back to normal. Could you advise on any possible solutions?

Hi John, how old is the TV?

The fault suggests the main board which controls the TV is developing a intermittent fault causing the TV to come back on by itself.

A typical cost in terms of parts is around £50, your then looking about an hours and a half's labour, so the repair would be around £120.

If you would like me to recommend a local firm who can give you a quote and replace the faulty part please provide your postcode.
