Question about Samsung Televison & Video
Three capacitors on the motherboard are bad. They cost about 2 dollars each. If you are handy, you can take the tv apart and replace them. It took me about 30 minutes. Unplug the tv. Lay it on a large table so the stand can hang off without tilting the tv with the back of the tv facing up. take all the Phillips screws off the back cover. Take the back cover off. There is a grey cover about the size of 8x11 inches on the left middle area held on by about 6 to 8 phillips screws. Take it off. Unplug the motherboard, there are about 5 different plugs. Unscrew it and take it out. There are 3 somewhat swelled 1000mf 10v capacitors in the upper area of the motherboard. Replace them with 1000mf 16v capacitors, soldering required. Make sure you install them with the ground in the proper hole. Put it all back together and you are fixed for less than ten dollars. Samsung should be doing this for free. It really makes me mad that they can put out such an expensive product and not accept responsibility for a potential fire hazard. I will make sure anyone who wants my opinion about an electrical product knows how bad samsung is. Good luck.
