Sounds like an Electrolytic Capacitor is leaking. If you have a capacitor checker you may be able to find the one leaking pretty easy. You could use a poor mans meter a VOM, put it on Ohms attach the Positive lead to the + side and the negitive side to the - and see if it will charge if not replace it. This will not always work unless you remove the capacitor.

My samsung 42 inch hdtv is making a buzzing noise

First. The whirring or buzzing sound you hear is the Color Wheel and it needs to be replaced. Second, since I do not know when and if the original lamp has been replaced it is a good idea to replaced the lamp. The bad Color Wheel is the one causing the set to shut down.
