Check the solution by billn352: $7 Fix! It Rocks!
billn352 even has the cost of the replacement capacitors correct! Thanks guy!
When my Samsung quit six months ago, the three solutions posted on FixYa were (1) Pay $300+ parts and $200+ labor to have it fixed, (2) Do #1 then rag Samsung until they repay you for the defective circuit board and (3) Get another TV and avoid getting stuck eith yet another defective circuit board. I chose to buy a 47" Phillips at Wal-Mart. I don't feel like paying big bucks every 18 months to keep the Samsung alive. I put the Samsung in the closet and took my lumps.
This month I revisited the solutions on FixYa and found the post by billn352! A $7 FIX and it Works!.
I pulled the Samsung out of the closet, laid it on a padded table, removed the plastic back (lotsa screws!), located the capacitors and removed the circuit board (more screws). The four capacitors are easy to locate. At least three of mine had black **** oozing out of the top of the cans. I ran down to the strip shopping center and got the four replacements at Radio Shack--under $7 with tax.
The capacitors are polarized (they have a positive and a negative lead) and I have a buddy who loves to solder and drink beer. So I asked him to do the hot stuff, assisted by a copy of the billn352 post to further identify the capacitors by component number and a six-pack of Miller Lite. Yes, the replacement capacitors are larger than the originals and Yes they fit nicely! So easy that a "drunk redneck" can do it!
I also checked the current prices for this model Samsung on the Internet. On one list, a new unit was offered for less than $400. Most I found were in the $500-$900 range. Give it another year and what do you think these sets will be worth! A $7 fix is worth doing: Maybe a $400 fix is not.

Sorry about that. When the tv goes bad like not turning on, the green light will blink, and goes right back to red standby light while the dtv letters will briefly show on the lower right of the tv screen, then go back to blank screen. The tv will need to be taken to an authorized service center for repair. Common causes are a bad inverter/power supply, power control board, or circuit board.

I had the same problem. Then it worked for a while with me unplugging it and plugging it back in. Then one day it bit the dust. Nothing but the red light.
I found the solution on this website and I am trying to find it to thank the guy who posted it. For less than 10 bucks at Radio Shack, I was able to fix the problem with his instructions. And I know little to nothing about electronics. What it boils down to is this:
1. Lay the TV face down on something soft.
2. Take out the gazillion screws in the back until the back panel(s) come off.
3. Where the power cord plugs in, there is a ground wire going to a screw and another plug that you can undo. On this circuit board lies the problem.
4. Remove the circuit board (there are several other plugs on it. They all fit only one way, so I didn't pay much attention to how they came off.
5. Look on the board at the light blue cylindrical shaped capacitors. I don't remember how many there are, but look at the top of them. Find any that are bulging slightly at the top. They should be easy to spot. I had six on mine that were bulging. If you are handy with a soldering iron, remove the bad ones, making sure where each one comes from. There are a couple of different types/sizes. It is written on the side of each the resistance and what I assume is the voltage.
6. Go to the local Radio Shack and purchase new resistors. Note: I had some that were 1000 um and 36v or something and some that were 440 um and 16v. I couldn't find an exact match on one of those, but according to who I got my instructions from, as long as the resistance (um) number is the same, you can go up in the volts. So I ended up replacing some that were 16v with like 35v but the resistance (um) was the same and there are no problems.
7. Solder them carefully back into place. The circuit board is clear about which hole is positive (+) so don't get them backwards. The ones I bought from Radio Shack had a stripe on the side that was negative.
8. Put it all back together, and there ya have it.
Cheap fix. I admit I was darn skeptical it would work. I had already bought a new tv, but decided I wouldn't be out much if it didn't work. But it is working like the day I bought it again. And, it has a better picture than the Philips LCD tv that I bought to replace it.
Wish I could find the guy I got that info from. I was very impressed and grateful.
Hope this works for someone.
