Anybody seen failed capacitors in LED LCDs?

by wrmarable / November 1, 2009 12:02 PM PST

I have seen many threads on various boards describing power supply problems in various Samsung LCD TVs- several capacitors fail and cause 'clicking' sounds among other issues. Since the new Samsung LED LCD TVs purport to consume 40% less power, I'm thinking these new sets do not have the same power supply problems. Has anybody seen or heard of clicking or failed power supply capacitors in any of the Samsung LED LCD TVs? Thanks for your time.

Can't believe what I'm reading about it on the net. Should have done that before buying one :-(. I've purchased a 40" Samsung LED TV 3 months ago. Since last week it takes up to 2 minutes to get it turned on. It keeps making a clicking sound like it tries to swich on but doesn't succeed. Can't believe that this is going on for over 2 years and there still isn't a "solution" available. I'll contact the store where I bought it this week, but for a product only 3 months old I don't find this normal at all.
Should have stayed with my first choice, instead of letting the sales person talk me into a Samsung :-(.
