LCD Tv does not turn on

by Gman5623 / January 21, 2013 11:26 PM PST

My Samsung Flat screen LCD no longer turns on. The red light is on when I plug it in but it clicks but does not turn on. model LN32A330J1DXZA. I hear there were poor quality capacitors used in some Samsung TV's that may be causing this. Any suggestions?

The BAD CAP symptom was not that.

This sounds like some other issue.

I fixed it

Well I opened the back of the TV and saw at least one bad capacitor. This must happen pretty frequently because I bought a complete set of capacitors on ebay for this tv. I replaced 3 that looked broken and the tv came back ot life. Cost me $10. I may start fixing these for other people now. My new tv is an LG.
