My Samsung 42 inch LCD tv won't turn on. It was working fine a few hours ago. There is a clicking noise when I turn the button on but nothing appears. The model number is SPR4232X/XAA

This can result in more damage and drive up the repair cost.

I wonder about that model number. http://www.samsung.com/us/capacitorsettlement/ didn't seem to show it but the symptom sounds the same.

Call it in and ask if it's on the list in YOUR COUNTRY.
