samsung set out a tech to fix the clicking noise. i had three blown capacitors. they fixed it for free...no problems at all. way to go samsung!
I have been reading about the clicking noise when powering on my lcd tv (two years out of warranty) and decided to give Samsung a call about the problem. They said it is a cap problem and will come out and fix it for free. I had not seen any recent postings about it so I was doubtful that they would come out and fix it. I will keep you posted.
