Help my Samsung tv is clicking and won't turn on!

by Js81504 / April 29, 2013 1:19 AM PDT

The tv is 2008. I have the model code and serial number. The model number is on the back on the tv which I can't get to, so are the other codes ok? I'm pretty sure its a capacitor problem but is it under warranty???

Be sure to remove power to this set.

Letting it continue can result in a more costly repair. Be sure to call it in and ask about it. But again, do not leave these clickers attached to power.
