When TV is first turned on it clicks on and off several times .
We have a Samsung LCD TV purchased in Dec. of 2007. Mo #LNT4061F. When we turn on the TV it turns on and off many times before we finally get a picture. We are allso getting green lines and pink dots on the screen.I am concerned because when I go to web sights I find that my problem is not unique to me. If you cannot help me could please tell me who I can contact in regards to the TV.Thank You,Jeffrey L. Lunder

Write down your serial # (found on the back or on the side) and your model # and call 800-Samsung. The issue has to do with the capacitors and if your TV was manufactured between Dec 2007 and May 2008 they will send a repairman out to repair for free (one time only). I just called and they are sending someone out to repair mine. Apparently there are tons of people experience the same problem.
It sounds like the tuning unit maybe nearing it's end and this could be costly and a new unit maybe better and more cost effective in the long run.
Save money and time and consult with known stores that sell alot of TV units.
Ask them about their prices, warranty, polices on (out of box TV units).
I speak from experience on purchasing some of these fine units which has worked out for me in the pass.
THE PROBLEM IS Faulty parts on PS board, bad press for Samsung Because the Samsung LNS4051D would not turn on and the power LED would blink 4 times and the relay would click and this would repeat again and again.I replaced power supply board parts CM806, 811, 812 & 817, all 1000 uf 10v capacitors, three had their tops bulged up slightly that I missed on initial visual inspection.After seeing the reports of problems with these caps on http://www.fixya.com/support/t1336881-will_not_turn_or_off , I replaced them with Radio Shack part 272-1032, 1000 uf, 35v.They are slightly bigger, but fit OK.TV is working fine now.Cost was 4 x $1.59 = $6.36 plus the time. I saved between $100 to 300 in the process of either replacing the board or getting the unit serviced.
