Trying to find stock in capacitor, will these ones do the job?

Search part number 146-3467 at au.rs-online.com (I can't post links as I'm new here).

Appreciate any advice.
It seems the capacitor you found are 10pF (10^-9) and not 10uF (10^-6).

Try and search "FG20X7S1H106KRT06" as written in my last post.

Can anyone recommend a mail-in service for repairing the PSU?

Thanks in advance!

Quite disappointing that my 50" 10 y/o Samsung plasma is going strong and was 1/4 the price of the 64".
I had a similar problem and it turned out to be caused by the capacitors. Have you tried to measure power output from the power supply or disconnecting the y-board and see what happens?
I considered sending my y-board and power supply board to a repair guy I found on ebay (username: levimom2). He will repair both for $90. He has a working pn64f8500 to test the parts on.

Just discovered the shipping price from the US is quite high, hard to find an equivalent in Australia

Hi folks i'm in what i believe is the same position to many in this thread.

For the past 18 months or so my F8500 would turn on initially perfectly but if i turned it off at all and tried to return it on i'd get the blinking lights. If i left the tv for about half an hour it would then turn back on as normal. This situation steadily worse and worse until it would not turn on at all when i came back from vacation in August.

I brought the tv to Samsung repair center here in Ireland who initially thought it was a power supply and could be fixed but then decided it was the whole screen and they cannot repair it (Part: BN96-25223A which appears to be the entire screen). The repair center told me Samsung have never had this particular replacement part (in Ireland anyway) and any tv's sold with this fault within warranty were just replaced and not repaired - i of course was well out of warranty. I have in the mean time purchased a LG C9 which i love but i'm determined to get the F8500 back up and running and i'm hoping the capacitor replacement will help me. I saw the link to the capacitors earlier on mouser but they are not available until the new year.

I think i found the equivalent part though am i correct?

https://www.digikey.ie/product-detai...mSeq=306750131

Any tips for a soldering newbie?

ps this is a brilliant thread and thanks to all who put in the hard yards on this.

The symptoms you describe are 100% exactly the ones that my 64F8500 had. Right down to finally not turning on at all when I returned from a 2 week vacation in August (2018).


Those caps look right to me, but someone else should chime in just in case I am wrong.


Regarding the soldering, I looked at the job and thought better of it. I used google to find a local electronics repair guy, and I brought him the board and caps and for $50 he replaced the caps while I waited.

Here's hoping!! I've a new TV as my cinemaroom TV but I really want to get this back up and running for the sittingroom. I orders a few capacitors from the link above so hopefully I can get it done

My F5500 did the same thing and the repair shop I took it to told me the screen was shorted. Threw it and got a UN65JU7100 from Amazon.

Pn64f5500 anyone know what a flashing red light 2x means. recently the tv started rebooted a lot and always came back on its own. then one day it wouldnt start at all. unplugged it and plugged it in and it started and ran fine. then turned off after a few minutes and has a continuous red light flashing 2x

i unplugged it about a minute then it has worked flawlessly for 2 days now.

i dont have the symptoms ive seen here of having sound but no video. its totally dead when it happens. no clicking. no turning on at all. just 2 flashing red lights. im lucky unplugging and plugging in has worked so far.

A correction to my former post.

I switched the capacitors and the TV worked for a short time, but then started switching off again.

After replacing the PSU the TV has been working properly for 10 days now.

But my problems were not the typical capacitor-symptoms. My tv switched off completely. No flashing diode.

The capacitors you ordered look fine.

Regarding the soldering, you could pay a professional as suggested or ask a friend. I did it myself and I am no expert, but I would suggest you practice first until you can make a clean solder. Maybe watch a few tutorials and make sure you have the right equipment. I bought a new soldering station to replace my solder iron because my old tip was very damaged/oxidized. Together with flux it made all the difference.

My TV isn't turning on {picture}, but there's sound and the red light flashes 5 times, so I guess it's
either the Y-board or the main board.

Shop Jimmy doesn't have them and doesn't look like he'll be getting any in stock.


So, If anyone is buying another TV and has no use any longer for their PN60F8500 parts , I'll be happy
to buy the boards.

Thanks

I have the 64" model and bought a power supply board from tvpartstoday.com and my tv now works fine.
They seem to have the y-board and main board for your tv as well. Maybe try and change the y-board first?

they had all 4 boards at a good price for my ff5500. however the power and y board didnt fix my unit and i didnt wanna spend another 100 in a possible futile repair. i put that money toward my a8g and it was a good choice. love the tv

they shipped the boards fast, 2 days. hope yours works.

anyone wanna buy my old set and put the other new boards in

I am having the same issues as everyone else here. Blinking light, not turning on all the time, etc. I have realized as long as i dont turn it off, it stays on. I only have the issue when I turn the tv off. For now I am turning my system off at the Pre/Pro, then the tv goes into screen saver mode. I have ordered the following board from Amazon to see if this fixes my issue.

Good luck - I gave up and bought a UN65JU7100 from Amazon for $1500 after replacing every board. Even got another exact same TV with same issues from someone else and spent two weekends swapping back and forth. BTW this is the last 3D TV Samsung line they produced. And for an LCD I am quite impressed with the picture, but plasma has a much cleaner action picture.

this is why i'm glad i gave up after 2 boards on my tv. didnt wanna toss good after bad and you are proof that replacing boards wont cure it necessarily. now i wish someone would buy mine with the 2 new boards and prove me wrong though.

So I got my tv at Best Buy in 2013 (64”) also got the extended warranty at the time (expired now.) I never had any issues with it till last year (2018), The first symptoms I noticed were that sometimes when turning on the tv the display would not turn on though the audio would. So I would proceed to either turn the tv off and try turning it back on (sometimes it would not let me turn it off so I’d just have to unplug it and then plug it back in), This was very rare early on though it started to happen more frequently as time went on. The second symptom I noticed as more time went by was that the tv would not want to turn on at all, all we’d get is the blinking red light on the led indicator, sometimes if we waited for the flashing to stop and tried turning it on again it’d turn on and other times we’d have to wait longer or unplug the tv and then plug It back in which usually always worked, as with the previous issue this got worse as time went by. Fast forward to about 2 months ago (September 2019) the tv usually doesn’t turn on anymore However the red led indicator is on if it’s plugged in and will usually flash when we try turning it on. If it does turn on the tv works as normal no issues with display or sound and as long as we don’t turn it off it’ll stay on though we don’t want to leave it on all the time as I can’t imagine how high my light bill would get. I’ve called Best Buy for repair options but since my warranty had expired by the time the issue began they said there’s nothing they can do unless I’m willing to pay 250 for some geek squad protection plan for a year and then they can send out a technician who’ll diagnose the tv and tell me the repair costs which I’ll still be responsible for paying (parts and labor), I can’t seem to find any tv repair shops near me to take it into but after reading all of the posts on this topic I’m going to see if replacing the 3 caps works. Im not very tech savvy so I’m probably not going to attempt this myself and was wondering if there anyone here from Oregon who can/knows someone who can do this. I’m seeing a lot of people paying around 50-100 to do this which is something I’d be willing to pay as many of the lcd TVs I’ve seen (even the quantum dot ones) lack the quality imo and I currently Don’t have the budget to pay for an oled tv at the moment.

From the symptoms you describe, it's a very high probability that it is the 3 caps issue; almost a textbook case (and exactly the same as mine).


When I decided to fix mine, I took the back off the TV and removed the Y-Sustain board. Be warned that the connectors to the board are very tight, and will fight you taking them off. I felt competent to work through that.


I did not feel competent to replace the 3 caps, so I Googled electronics repair in <nearby small city> and found a guy who did it for $50 (I carried the board into his shop). You may want to try that.

I went ahead and ordered a few of the caps from the link (should arrive by the 27) now just looking for someone who can do an In House repair (I did find someone but they won’t be able to until early next year but I want it fixed now lol). also I don’t have a vehicle to transport this tv in (had an accident earlier this year and totaled my suv) and as I mentioned I just don’t feel capable of doing the replacement or taking out the y board or whatever it’s called. I did see a video on YouTube of someone taking it out but I I’d just rather have someone more knowledgeable either fix it with the y board intact or someone who can remove it and then repair it. Also for some reason the tv was actually useable all day today (November 24) I turned it on and off more than once Throughout the day and for some reason it’s been working fine...it’s currently November 25th around 5 am and I just turned off the tv and then back on and it started up with no issues......I hope it stays useable till I can get someone to do the repair. I’m currently stuck using a 32” Sony lcd.

Hi danfuglo, thanks for the reply ,appreciate it.

My friend has the same model and waiting for them to
bring it over so we can swap boards to see which one is causing the problem.

Once we figure which board is the culprit I can order from tvpartstoday.com

I'll report back ,thanks !

I quoted several to give a heads up because I think I found the problem.

I have the 60" F8500 which looks different than the 64" model and none of those capacitors are present in that location, see post #226 for pics of the 64" boards.
https://www.avsforum.com/forum/167-p...l#post50174321

I've been waiting for a friend to bring over their TV {same model} to swap boards to see which board was causing my problem. Blinks Red 5 times ,sound comes on but no picture.

Anyway in the meantime I took off the back cover to examine for blown fuses , couldn't find anything. I took pictures with my cell so I could zoom in on board numbers in case I had to order a board.

When I zoomed in on pictures I noticed something, see if you can notice it too. I just want to make sure I'm not imagining what I'm seeing is the problem. It wasn't noticeable when I was eyeballing it with a flashlight,I only noticed it when zooming in on the pictures.

I'm uploading several pics so you can compare my 60" to the 64" and several others to see if anyone can spot what I spotted.

See pics on bottom of post and be sure to zoom in.

Thanks

I did not feel competent to replace the 3 caps, so I Googled electronics repair in <nearby small city> and found a guy who did it for $50 (I carried the board into his shop). You may want to try that.

I’m currently stuck using a 32” Sony lcd.

Had the caps replaced earlier today and so far the tv now turns on and off with no problems it’s still early but I’m thinking my issue has been resolved. I did notice another Isa&#237; pop up though whenever I put my tv on the “standard” mode the brightness starts decreasing until its pretty much dark. I switched it to other modes (movie, relax, and dynamic) and I haven’t noticed it dimming in any of these other modes. It’s a pretty noticeable dim that it didn’t use to do, we normally have it on dynamic as that’s where my family likes it but we use to sometimes switch it to standard and now we can’t as the image dims way too much.
