tv is 8 years old... Samsung model le32387bd

Thanks Dave,
Does the TV keep repeating this pattern or does it do this only one time?
Also do you lose audio during the blankng screen?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago.

I have already answered first question at the moment it has been repeating for 2 hours I lose audio during blank screen

Hi Dave,
please be patient as this is a technical issue and we have to determine the problem without actually seeing or testing the set.
This may take a bit of time as I mentioned;-)
Thank yu for the information.
Akso does the power light remain ON during all of this?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago.

just gone back to 10 and 20 seconds.. power light seems on when its blank but goes off when picture there

Thanks Dave,
this is more than likely a power supply issue.
The internal power supply board will need to be replaced to fix this.
There is no soldering required;-)
But you must be sure to be careful and follow ESD proceedures to prevent static electricity from damaging components in the TV while making this repair. A few basic tools are all that is needed to do this and I will assit you at no addtional cost.
The best place to get a new power supply board is partmaster, I have included their website and phone # ***** your convenience below.
Its best to call them to order this part as not all parts are listed on the site, especially for sets that old.
I will stick with you until your unit is working correctly,and it won't cost you anything additional to rate my service. You can always get in touch with me if you need further assistance after rating;-)
Thank you and have a nice day;-)
Please rate kindly at this time.

so wot happens if I do this and its not the power supply

Hi Dave I have been a TV tech for over 30 years loll, that should solve the issue you are having.
But if for some reason you still have a problem, just let me know, also you can ask me for installation advice once you rate and I will be here to help until your TV is working the way it should.
No additional cost to rate either.
Have a great evening and please rate kindly at this time.
