Question about Samsung DLP HL-P5663W 56" TV
Only 1.5 years old 40 inch LCD 1080i. Clicks for about 5 to 10 minutes, then turns on. Once on works fine. Tonight its not turning on at all.
Its a common problem with many Samsung LCD TVs. We had the same problem on our Samsung TV. Based on some info on the net we called Samsung Support department ( 1-800-SAMSUNG). After describing the problem and mentioning that I have read on the net that its a common problem, representative asked for the model number and serial number of the TV ( I read them to her from a sticker on the side of TV). The Samsung Rep acknowledged that it was a common problem for my model and few other LCD models and they were fixing the problem without any charge to customer eve though TVwas out of warranty. She took the required info and gave me the ticket/transaction number and forwarded it to a local technician. Technician called next day and setup the appointment with us. Technician came within the 4 hr window that he had promised and changed the faulty capacitor on the power board and was done within 10 mins. Samsung rep had indicated that the technician will determine if the issue was with capacitor or not. If the issue was something else then tecnician will charge the regular service charge to fix the issue.

Its the electrolytic capacitors on the power supply board.
you will find them swollen or exploded. easily fixed. go to www.earthinfo.org/samsung-tv-makes-a-strange-clicking-sound.

Had the same problem and the TV was taking longer & longer to start up when first switched on Lots of clicking. Found that the capacitors on the main power card were shot. Look for a group on capacitors that are fat or bulging could also be leaking black stuff. they cost about 50cents each from an electronic spares shop.Had to replace 4 on mine. You'll need to remove the back cover & the power card. Also need a soldering iron & some solder.Total cost of repair $3. Hope this helps

As said by others it is the cheap capacitors that samsung have put in.
When getting them replaced or replacing them yourself make sure you use the ones that have a higher temp threshold.
Just done mine myself, quite easy if you are ok with a soldering iron. the ones samsung used only had a 105 degrees max temp, i put in new ones with a max temp of 130 degrees so these will last longer. Remember the only way these tv`s turn off is at the power socket not by the button on the front.
