Why won't my samsung LN52A TV audio/video turn on
A friend gave me his non-working Samsung LN52A530P1FXZA. When you plug in and tap the power on/off you hear a click and a little red light starts flashing once a second or so above the power on/off spot. No audio or video. When he gave it to me the unit had been unplugged for a few weeks. Also tried holding the power button on while plugged in and not plugged in - while plugged in this elicits that same click sound every 15 seconds or so - with no further effect.
I have taken the back off and examined the power board but nothing is visibly damaged or broken that I can see.
I’m not an EE tech sort, but not afraid to learn and try things. Including buying tools I might need. I have a multimeter and an ifixit kit.
Appreciate any guidance I may receive here.
hopefully I have managed to upload a pic of the power board here.
