Question about Flat Panel Televisions
I had the same issue with my 42HP95 after about two and a half years. Same symptom, red flashing power light, reset doesn't work and most of all, the last day of the Ryder Cup starts in 3 hours. Any other time (with exception of SuperBowl Sunday). I frantically searched the web for like symptoms and came across someone that posted the fix was to bypass the Seine Module but I had no clue what that was! So what do you do? Tear off the back of the TV and look for something that says Seine on it... Right! After that failed and 500 screws later, I decided to look for a Service Manual online. Nothing like RTFM (Google it!). I paid my $11.99 for a download Service-Manual.Net and found what appeared to be the Seine Module (SEIN). Through a little trial and error, here is what I came up with. The pic below shows the location of the said Module in the red rectangle.
I ultimately found that if I unplugged the connector from the module (in red circle) and put it in the cable management loop (other red circle), the TV would power on and has been working ever since.
According to the post I read (grains of salt) the SEINE Module is only needed if you are using coaxial type (rabbit ear) antenna. I personally don't know but it works for me. Granted, this is my experience and may not work for you but for $12, I am a happy camper. BTW, what a Ryder Cup!!! USA USA USA!!!

It would be a lot cheaper if you just replace the two caps that have gone bad. Just get a cheap solder pencil from the store and about an inch of solder and you are in business.
The Power Supply Board is the center Board (towards left) after you remove the back off the TV. Remove Board from TV with the 6-7 screws. Replace capacitors CM852 & CM853; 2200ufd 25volts.
Thaks for using FIXYA, BIG IRISH.

You'll find some Samsung power supply boards here : http://www.usefulparts.com/index.php?main_page=index&manufacturers_id=11&sort=20a&filter_id=98&alpha_filter_id=0
but you have to open your TV first and find out model number
