Question about Samsung LN-S3241D 32 in.LCD HDTV

Open Question

Samsung LNS3241D often won't turn on manually, turns on by itself

The TV sometimes turns on by itself, but often won't turn on manually, using either the remote control or the power button. It can take several tries or not work at all. The red standby light is on and solid, doesn't blink when trying to turn on.
I followed troubleshooting steps on Samsung's web site, including trying a known good outlet and doing some kind of reset (unplugging and holding power button for 30 seconds). Samsung's web site recommends a repair, so that's what we'll do next, but thought worth checking here too.

SOURCE: Samsung TV won't turn on- trying to fix it. A challenging problem

I had the same problem. I live in NJ and called the local authorized "service provide" listed on the Samsung website. What a joke. Quoted $350 just to show up, never showed up. So I opened my own TV. Took off the plastic back (10 screws) took off the large metal RF shield (12-14 screws) and noticed a blown component. The markings on the component were KL15L and it is apparently an NTC Thermistor. Obviously it got fried and not knowing if there was other damage I decided to set out to replace the entire Power PCB Board Assembly and not the component. There were two part numbers on the assembled board (BN97-00457E & BN94-00622E). After searching online I also found a suitable replacement number for these (BN96-04896A). I found two places who claimed to have the part or have it on order (shopjimmy.com and vancebaldwin.com). After placing orders with both and having neither come through, I broadened my search and found out that the LNR409D was basically the same model as my LNR408D so I looked for its Power PCB Board Assembly part number which turned out to be BN41-00521B. Google search for that part number showed the item available on ebay. I bought it a week ago (ebay 260311519904) for $144 plus $12 shipping. I removed the bad board an hour ago (6 screws about 7 connectors) installed the new one, plugged in the connectors, replaced the covers, plugged in the TV... AND IT WORKS!
Suggestion: If your TV is out of warranty then open it up (what have you got to lose) and see if the problem is obvious and maybe something you can fix (replace) yourself. The parts, spare boards, etc. are out there if you look.

SOURCE: Samsung LNR408DX/XAA Wont power up

    I followed the suggestion of checking the capacitors on the power board. They were shot so I tried taking the power board to get them replaced. It was really hard to get anyone to help me. Most of the repair shops stated they would not just fix the board and they would only repair it if the whole TV was brought in.     One of the smaller shops did help me out. He stated that this is not a Samsung problem, this is a LCD problem. My Samsung was only the second Samsung he has fixed in 4 months. He stated he has worked on many other brands daily with the same problem. This made me feel better after hearing all the problems and complaints on this thread.     The shop actually replaced all seven capacitors with 35v ones. He states blown capacitors won't be an issue in the future.  He explained that during some busy screen play, especially with HD gaming, these capacitors end up running 12-14v through them and that's what destroys the 10v capacitors. It's like putting a gallon and a half of water in a one gallon container and something has to give.     Sorry, I like to educate and explain things so am a little long winded. In Short: If you are experiencing clicking in your Samsung, Don't throw it out, Don't curse it, and call around to see who will not just replace the parts but potentially upgrade board to prevent future visits.
