Any clicking on power up?

Too bad so sad!

We have already had the capacitor replaced in September of 2010 -- it would keep clicking and take a while to turn on. Since that was replaced, the TV was working fine, now the picture keeps blinking.
When I spoke to Samsung, they told me that I had the capacitor fixed as my "one time only free fix" and that I was on my own for this issue. They gave me the phone number of a repair shop in my area for me to take it to.
The issue I have here is that we have paid alot of money for this TV, and after only 3 years it needs to be repaired a second time?? I told Samsung that they need to stand behind the quality of the product they are putting their name on. They would not budge on doing anything to stand behind their product.

Sorry to read that.

The BAD CAPS plagues cars, motor controls, Dell PCs (millions!), HDTV and more. While I feel for you it would have been nice to know you got that one time fix and maybe just maybe could you add those transaction numbers for our ambassador?
