The main power supply regulator board should be checked. This is a very skilled work. It will be best to seek assistance by any experienced service technician.

I have a Samsung hdtv, 47inch. When I turn it on it makes several attempts to come on but will only come on after several attempts. It is as if it has to warm up first. It takes about 5 to 7 minute

If there is no welcome tune, there is a problem in the main power supply
replace power supply module or have someone to repair the module.

Our v2000 takes several attempts to turn on - once on works fine

This could be a hard drive problem. Try taking the hard drive out and putting it in another laptop. Also try taking the battery out and then connect it only with the power cord connected. If you have the same problem it is most likely a hard drive problem. I would recommend that you back up the data and get a new hard drive.
