Question about Samsung LN-S4041D 40 in. LCD HDTV
I just fixed this very same problem. It is true that the capacitors are the problem. However, I think that if you have some minimal skills with soldering, you can fix this yourself. You just need to take out the system board, then the power supply parts are on the top right. The bad capacitor(s) will be bulging at the top and possibly have some brown stuff coming out. The ones that go bad are 1000microfarad, 10V, however you can replace them with higher voltage. I got 35V caps from radio shack for 1.59 each. You just need to solder out the bad ones and then put the new ones in and solder. Remember that the negative end goes on the side with the bold black part of the circle on the system board. Then just cut off the extra ends of the capacitors. If you are capable of doing this yourself, you will spend at most 6 dollars instead of however much a technician costs.

I too took Jonatron's advice and purchased and installed the 4 capacitors by myself. Its a very easy fix. It only cost $6 and 2 hours of my time! I youtubed samsung capacitors, watched the man show me excactly what I needed to do, and just did it. You can do it too!!!! Dont pay those greedy tv repair people hundreds of dollars to do what you can do for $6 bucks!

My SAMSUNG LN-S4041DX/XAA
.ExternalClass .ecxhmmessage P
TV just clicks on/off repeatedly but it won't power
up. The LED flashes 4 times and then it goes off. TV is 3 1/2 years
old and of course out of warranty.
I am not ready to call a service person because they never seem to do anything but replace boards which is what I am doing.
Here is what I have done so far:
1. Replaced 10V capacitors on power supply board with higher voltage ones but same 1000uF rating. Didn't fix the problem.
2. Replaced entire power supply board with another one. Didn't work.
3. Now I plan to replace the main board on the right and the T con board at the top. I will do this separately to see if it fixes the problem. I will return whatever board that I don't need.
Can anyone think of something I am missing? Is it an easy fix that a repairman could do if he's good? I'm ready to call SEARS after this.
