Question about Televison & Video

Open Question

My 1 year old Samsung LE40M86BD has been turning on and off. It only does this if im turning it on i would have to wait 2mins the first time it did. Then it slowly got longer today it took 2 hours till it eventually turned on my warranty just ran out on Feb. Not sure what could cause the problem i unplug it every night.The set makes a clicking sound like something inside is making it switch off the TV itself is perfect had nothing wrong with it besides this. Thanks a bunch if you do reply i jus hope for a DIY fix rather then take it to a service engineer.

SOURCE: Samsung HPT4254X/XAA plasma turns off and on by itself, clicking.

My samsung does the samething. TV is 3 yrs old. Repair guy said, it needs a new computer board. Said, that about 75% can be repaired if you can see what the problems is on the board. But the others show no sign so has to replace the whole board at $175.00 for the board and total cost around $300.00.

Water in the under side of the washer is probably shorting the unit out, making for a potentially very dangerous and potentially lethal hazard.. Turn the breaker off to the dish washer until you have figured out where the leak is coming from. Is it from the supply line that feeds the water to the machine or is the tub leaking. I would guess the water supplu line is leaking.

SAMSUNG LE40M86BD very thin black line

The screen is failing. A conductive strip from a flex connector to the glass panel is losing contact when cold. Any warranty left? extended warranty? Usually not repairable, screen has to be replaced and cost as much as a new set....

52 HD Samsung tv turns off

I have the same problem with my 56" HD Samsung. It shuts off automatically and then on the power button the word Lamp is light up in green. Sometimes I can turn it back on but other times it won't and I have to wait a bit. It's been embarassing a couple times when people were over for a movie. I believe it might be some kind of overheating problem but would like someone to confirm this.
