Hi there.your set needs four new capacitors fitting on the power supply.they are grouped together,if you take the back off,you will see they have domed out on the top,and may be leaking brown fluid.if you are reasonably handy with a soldering iron,replacement is dead easy.caps are only a few pence each,take note of the polarity when changing.this is a VERY common problem.

    Do you know the specs of the capacitors that need to be replaced? It would be handy for me to buy the right ones before I open this up.

    hi rob,the specs and voltage are on the sides.just off the top of my head,think they are 1000 uf.
    rated at 10 or 16 volts.replace with 105 degree low esr types where brands to use are (my favourites) 1.dubilier,2 nichicon,3,elna.
    avoid all the cheapies where poss.they work,but you will be swapping them more often.....
    This is why samsung have the problem,and they know about it too.
    if you get stuck,will send you the parts you need .email me at

Press the TV button on the remote
Then whilst holding down the power button you need to enter in the samsung TV codes until your TV turns off (I only got to the first and it did it)
The numbers are 00, 15, 16, 17, 40, 43, 46, 47, 48, 49, 59, 60, 98

It takes around 3 minutes for the TV to trun on after we push the remote. At first it used to be few seconds then longer and longer. Now it takes around 3 minutes for it to click in.

This problems is the tv power supply board.That the board,where the power a/c cord plug into it.U have tools like a soldering iron,desoldering pump or a roll of desoldering braids,a roll of solders and u know basic soldering and basic electronic?Check the power supply board for dying soon to be dead parts call capacitors.These dying soon to be dead capacitors are alway bulges or puffing up on it tops.After u replaced these dying soon to be dead capacitors,the tv well go back to powering up again like a few seconds.Or tries websites like, to buy a whole refurbish power supply board for the replacement.

The TV ckicks and clicks and clicks instead of turning on for up to 5-10 minutes

The problem is with the PSU of your TV, may be a dry solder or probably weakened capacitors, you need to replace all those capacitors that are swollen/leaked, ensure the power cable is alright.

Is there a clicking sound? Unplug the power cord for 20 seconds and see if this helps reset the circuitry. If the clicking continues, go to If you can see defective caps on the power board and don't feel comfortable replacing, parts can be ordered at

3 year old Samsung 40 inch LCD TV will not turn on

The problem is 4 capacitors on the power supply board. Just had mine done under warranty. They (Sears) replaced the whole power board but you can get larger capacitors and just replace those for alot cheaper if not under warranty.

TV clicks constantly, as if trying to turn on/off.

Probably a bad main board or T-CON board or both. If you're trying to fix yourself, try disconnecting the cable (LDVS) from the small board (T-CON) at top center of the LCD panel and see if it still cycles. Note, be very careful with that cable, it is very delicate. If it still is cycling off and on, then it is probably the main board. A slight chance it may be the power board also.
