Replacing capacitors is relatively simple, The caps range from a few cents to a couple of dollars (I can not be more specific without knowing exactly which ones are effected) of course most repair shops will "mark-up" the cost of parts. If they charge much more then that they are overpricing the parts.

The labor rate is also highly variable, but I would not charge more then a hour to 1.5 hours of labor. Check with the repair shop in your area for a estimate.

SOURCE: Samsung LN-T2632H won't turn on.

Follow these steps to figure out what problem is.
When you turn on TV, look at the back and see if the back light on. If it is on, the power supply and inverter work fine. The suspection now is main board and T-con board (the small board on the middle-top of the panel)
To find the problem from the main board or not. Look at the power supply and measure Vs on - turn on the TV, this approx 5 vlt DC needs constant once you turn on the TV. If it is drop or unstable - main board problem - replace it.
If Vs on is good - disconnect the T-con cable from the power sup. If power sup stop clicking - T-con need replacing. Hope it help.

Tv wont turn on red light stays on but green light goes off


The capacitors on the power supply need to be replaced. When you take apart the TV, and then remove the power supply (it's the section that the power cord goes to) and open it up. Look for the little can capacitors and see if any of them are bulging on top. That is the sign that they've blown. Replace the big ones (about 5) for about $5 in parts. Reassemble and test by turning it on. Search for YouTube video on how to replace capacitors.

My tv is on standby but wont turn on it the blue light goes off as if its going to switc on but comes back on after a few seconds


The problem of your tv is the power supply board. Try to remove the back cover of your tv and look around the power supply board if you can find this capacitors it has a electrolite gases leakages at the bottom of the capacitor and also if you see some bulge up on the top of the capacitor or not perfectly flat, replace this capacitor but remember the proper position of the capacitor because it has a polarity. Note unplug the unit before removing the back cover. Good day and best regards.

My toshiba 32kv500b wont turn on, the standby light extinguishes after 2 seconds when the on off switch is turned on, there are noises coming from the tv when i press the manual buttons. Any ideas


Hello,

You need to check the output voltages of the power supply to see which one goes off. It may be due to short circuits some where,if otherwise the power supply board is dead, u know basic electronics' and soldering? Most of the times, the power supply board just have dead leakages gases capacitors.These capacitors always bulges up on it top,or puff up on it top.Replaced these gases leakages capacitors will get your TV power stable,and work again.Or tries websites like Shopjimmy.com,Ebay.com to buy a whole refurbish power supply board for the replacement.

Hope this help in solving the problem....

T.v. won't turn on


Open the back of the TV,and look at the can shaped items called capacitors on the board that the power cord is hooked to.If any of them have the tops,or bottoms bulged out,they need to be replaced.This should get it working again.Most of the time the big black capacitor on the power board goes bad,and bottom bulges out,but sometimes it is the other capacitors as well.I hope this helps.If you have any questions,please let me know.Thank You very much!
