My plasma tv power supply is knackered. Samsung PS42q96HDX

It seems my plasma tv power supply is knackered. The tv wont turn on but makes a strange click whenever I unplug it. Does anyone know how I can replace this myself. Its out of warranty and the tv repair guys say £200 for the fix!!! Its only 18months old, a 42inch Samsung plasma PS42q96HDX/XEU. Any help much appreciated.

    Samsung offer a service for the TV range and if the power supply clicks and does not turn on for a while then contact their support line, my TV was just under 7 years and they will send a Engineer Free of charge, if it turns out to be capacitor related issues will replace Free of charge. You can contact them on 01932 454358.

One answer guys its the Capacitors ont he motherboard. To fix yu will require 1 trsuty Soldering Iron , Solder and the right replacement capacitors(you can get any of these on Ebay cheap as chips).To Detect a faulty cap and you feel confident you can tackle this, will need to take the back off the board, the main board is where the power supply is plugged in. Look at all the capacitors on the board and the Raised bed, white flux or black flux is a sign of a blown cap. PLease note the black marks are not a feltip pen, these are the acid leaked from teh faulty cap itself, hope that helps.

SSP-R4232 Plasma TV, blue light on, but tv wont turn on.


At this point it appears that your main board is probably bad. You most likely have a 5 volt scource going to the main board but its not powering up the set. The main board is part number BN94-00796A.
You might want to have a technician look at the TV to verify this as the issue before purchasing it. Please take a few moments to rate my answer. Thank you.

Our samsung le40r87bd is making a strange clicking noise wont come on can u help its about 3yrs old and has not given us any trouble before this!


The clicking sound is coming from the regulator in the power supply. It is trying to turn itself on, notices that the voltages are not correct and turns itself off to protect the rest of the TV and repeats. You need to replace the power supply.

My samsung le40r88bdx wont turn on just keeps clicking!


This seems to be a common problem and is possibly caused by samsung using faulty capacitors in the power supply. It seems to happen to lots of different samsung models. If your TV is out of warranty and you can manage a soldering iron, you can have a go at fixing it yourself (or someone with basic electronics skills) . Check out http://www.earthinfo.org/samsung-tv-makes-a-strange-clicking-sound/ where there is a tutorial on how to do it yourself.
