Samsung 50" plasma won't turn on

Our 50" plasma began making a clicking sound when we would turn it on. The power on became delayed and it would take the tv between 10 seconds and 45 seconds to turn on, Now, there is no power to the tv at all.

Please Help! We have only had this $2,400 tv for 18 months and it is out of warranty!

    could only see half the screen.

    Mine is a 50",. Turned itself off while viewing then repeatedly tried to restart but only clicked. Sound was fine. Unplugged overnight and tv works fine but now has a humming noise.

    it's not the capacitors,they check ok here but still could be to weak and cause other component to overheat,so I will keep checking component until I find the one who blew

My 42" plasma is making a clicking sound, then it switches off and keeps clicking but not switching back on, when it does go back on it stays on for just a few moments, it is only 14months old.

I've replaced every board on the samsung plasma and still clicks

What do you mean by clicks? Plasma televisions are hot cathode ray, there is thermal expansion that takes place due to heat.

Although the device does not turn on electricity, the supply may be the problem, how can I fix?

TV fails to turn on, like the many other Samsung TV owners my three year old Samsung TV began having delays turning on and then eventually failed to turn on all together. I was shocked and dismayed to find the high number of Samsung consumers with the same issues on the internet and frustrated as like myself most were way beyond the one year warranty. There are even several YouTube videos demonstrating how to replace the faulty capacitors causing the problem. I was ready to be done with Samsung but to my pleasant surprised after several phone calls to 1-800-samsung they offered to make a onetime repair at no charge. Samsung made the repair in less than 30 minutes with no questions asked. Samsung stood by the product and so will I.
