SAMSUNG TV LT-P2045U that I can not turn on...any suggestions?

The SamSung TV LT-P2045U will not turn you have any suggestions and approx how much it might cost to have it repaired? Of all the things that can go wrong with a TV, turning it on seems like the last thing that should go wrong. I am not happy with SamSung. Any thing that you can suggest would be appreciated. Thanks,

    I have the same problem. The monitor is on for about 3 seconds while the orange power light flashes. Then the picture disappears but the sound is still on. Usually I have to wait about 2-3 hrs before it works normally again.

that's from a thermal switch, to keep the innards cool, post use. Seems to me that you might just check to see that all vents are open and clear of debris, for starters.

SOURCE: Receiver completely frozen

I assume you have already tried repowering from the mains.
Remove popwer for a minute then plug in whilst holding down the "backup" button - this will reload the software.

SOURCE: samsung LNS4041D will not turn on

My Samsung LN-S4041d starting clicking and within two days would not turn on. I found an article online concerning the same problem with leaking capaictors. I pulled out the motherboard and my capacitors cm812,cm811,cm817, cm806 were leaking and/or bulged. I went to radio shack and purchased 4 1000uf 35v replacements. It took about 45 minutes to install, which I had never done before, and the TV works perfectly. It cost me $1.59 for each capacitor, $9 for a soldering iron, and $4 for rosin-core solder. Hope this helps your situation.
