My TV won't turn on and it doesn't matter if I use the remote of push the power button on the front of the TV. It clicks continually unless I hold down the power button on the front for at least 20 seconds. I called a couple of local repair shops and received an estimate of $250-$300 and it would take 3-5 days. Is this something is relatively easy to fix? Thanks!!!!

Re: TV clicks/snaps and won't turn on
Did they say for sure what parts are bad? My guess flyback transfomer/ shorted hori output transistor NTE2324.And to answer your other question about you trying to fix this keep in mind this set carrys up to 36,000 volts and if you really dont know what you are doing can get you killed.leave it to the PRO's to fix unless you have at lease 3yrs of Electronics.

OSD for on your TV for a Pioneer Receiver setup menu.(It doesn’t matter what make your TV is).
Connect the MONITOR OUT video jack on the receiver to a video input on your TV.Use a standard RCA video cable to the composite video jack.
Turn your TV on and put your TV onto AV3.Turn your receiver on, then on your remote control push the receiver button (this is not the on/off button, there is another button with receiver written on it) then push the setup button on your remote control.You should get the OSD menu on your TV for the settings for your receiver.
the tv need for servicing, the cause is either bad regulator transistor in the power supply section or shorted horizontal output transistor. that is why the main circuit board doesn't get to turn on. to do the repair just ensure you have knowledge in repairing tv.

check the front button plate on the front of the tv very carefully.if it has been hit with something and either or any button is pushed in,it will not listen to other commands.make sure each button has a distinct click when pushed.a frozen button will cause other things not to work.it sounds to me like two buttons are making contact,and they are beside each other,so the button plate is crooked or warped.
The fact that it turns on is good. Most likely the trouble is with a data line internal in the set. It may be the remote receiver IC or a push button on the set. A stuck button or switch can confuse or load communication between internal microprocessor circuits. Take a look or feel each of the push buttons do they feel the same when pushed ? Do they have a slight snap when pushed. The tac switches used in most cases are made like a small old clicker. If one feels soft and has no snap it's probably your trouble. If so tap lightly around but not on the button and it might free itself. You should just have Samsung replace whatever is the cause.
