Standby/Off LED on the Samsung LE**R51 Range?


Standard Member
This is a question for anyone with a Samsung LE**R51 LCD TV:

When you turn the set off using the power button in the middle of the TV - does a red LED come on and stay on? Does it do exactly the same thing if you put it into standby using the power button on the remote control?

I love this TV - but at the moment when i turn it off, or when i think im turning it off using the button on the TV this red LED comes on (its a red LED thats built into the power button, at the top), and i want to make sure im not putting it into standby as it will surely use more power than if it were off?

Thanks :)

In common with many appliances these days, this TV doesn't have a proper power switch, just a standby switch.
I turn mine off at the wall.

It hardly uses any power in standbye nothing like the old CRTs. Its 1watt...Had mine since last july and the bill has not shown any significant increases...:)
