I have had my TV for about 5 years (2009) . My Samsung has had the power board and capacitors change twice by a Samsung tech. I am being told by the Tech that the main board needs to be replaced and problems that the power board do not cause problems with the main board. This I find hard to believe. The problem also it is impossible to find a main board for replacement Since many parts store are out. At present after a long turn on and a distorted picture the TV works fine.(heats up) I am now thinking to purchase a new TV and wondering if it should be a Samsung.? I do have other Samsung products
