I have a samsung TV purchased in 2008. It statrted clicking when I would turn it on, it would take longer and longer to come on. Now is is not coming on at all it just clicks. Its my understanding that there are numerous people out here with the same problem from this particular brand of TV. This TV should have lasted longer than this.

2~3 years is typical, I just fixed 32" SAMSUNG due to bad power supply because it uses cheaply made capacitors.
The TV may have dying power supply due to bad caps, I would have it fixed before it gets worst and causes more damages other circuits.

If you are going to DIY and have proper tools, electronics knowledge, and know safety precaution then please read on:

My Samsung plasma TV purchased in 2008 does not turn on...the power light comes on for. Second and then goes off again...changed fuse and power cable...! Help ....


Check the power supply board to verify all the different voltages are present. If they all look good then replace the main board. That's the one that has all the input and output jacks on it.

Clicking noises before TV turns on.


The clicking noise is coming from the power supply relay. Is makes this sound when the TV is usually turned on or off but has become faulty. It will only get worse over time usually until the TV will no longer turn on anymore. You need to replace the power supply in order to fix the TV.

Samsung 50'' Plasma TV won't turn on anymore


If your tv is within the one year warranty period then call 1-800-Samsung for warranty repair. Look at your tv purchase receipt for the Purchase Date. You have one year from the date of purchase to get warranty repair.

Takes awhile for tv to come on!


Hello Ruben,
This type of failure is common on these TVs. The power supply might need to be replaced due to bulging capacitors. If you are able to replaced the capacitors, it is a cheaper alternative.
