Question about Televison & Video
The problem to the television could be related to any of the three (3) solutions that was given to the people with the problem. And the prices also vary as well.
Firstly, the capacitor is a battery like structures that are upright or slant on the panel of the television. They are found on the panel. Their function is to regulate the current that flows through a panel.
To find a dead capacitor, firstly some might have swollen, some with burnt looking edge, and you can test it with a meter reader by locating its tip under the panel and testing it with a meter reader.
To buy a replacement capacitor, you need to remove the old one by turning to the back of the panel, locate the capacitor to be replaced pins and burn out the lead that is on it with a pin tip soldering iron, be very careful in order not to damage any other component on the panel.
Tools required: Soldering iron, cutting pliers, replacement capacitor.
In order for you not to get electrocuted, ensure you do not plug the television to any power supply when working on it.
I can only direct you to www.youtube.com where you can see videos of how capacitors are replaced. You can search for 'how to repair a samsung tv with power problem' a list of videos will come up and you can select that which best suits your taste.
You can do it yourself. But make sure you are very careful when doing this.
Take care and good luck
