Turns off after about 30 seconds and starts clicking, will come back on after a few minutes and then turn off again and clicks. What is the cost to get this fixed. I have read hundreds of complaints about this same problem and Samsung is not fixing all, only some models.

What you have wrong with your tv is in the power supply board, it is a very common problem which you can fix yourself for around $30 this is a MAJOR Samsung problem and thousands of people are having this problem. What you need to do is deenergize your tv and lay it face down on a table so you can work on it. Use a philips screwdriver to remove all the screws on the back cover of the tv make sure to remember where they go for when you put it back together. Remove the back cover and follow the two wired from where your tv power cord comes in and in the middle of your tv they will plug into a board, this is your power supply board. Look for blown capacitors, also check the fuses the tops will be bulging upward and caps have writing on them like 10v 1000uf or 2200 uf and 3300uf are the most common. What you will need to do is replace these with a 16v cap but be sure the uf number is the same, and you need 105 degree rated caps. There is also a negative side to the capacitor which is marked with a stripe and a shorter leg on the bottom, these have to go in the same way or you will blow the board, remove the board with screwdriver and disconnect all wires, now you will need your tools solder, soldering iron, and preferably a solder ****** to remove the old bad caps here is a youtube link that shows u step by step just go there and type samsung power supply repair, and whether you have a vizio, philips or another model that this is posted on they all have samsung power supplies in them so if you are having power problems this is your fix, you should be able to get all your parts at radio shack or on the web. Thank you and votes are welcome and if you cant find the parts get to me and I can help you get them

Maxent MX42VM10 just turns on for a second and goes to standby


You have a two part problem here 1 is a bad capacitor in the unit witch is preventing startup another another would be your decoder board witch is causing those flashes on the screen just before it remits back to standby. My professional advice is simple take it in get a estimate on it if it cost you more then $200 to fix it then you might want to get a repair manual and do it yourself or find a low cost tech that knows this stuff. Otherwise you will need to search for its replacment, let me tell you plasmas are not going to be servicable after july 2011 so get it fixed while you can or find a good home for it.

After turning the unit on, it clicks to start, but then clicks right back off...


once you switch the unit off mid cycle, it needs time to equalise before it will switch on again.  otherwise check the cap.to start the compressor.

Power light flashing/ no picture


I have the same problem. The only way to get the TV to come on is to unplug it, but once you get it back on it turns itself off again in a few minutes.
