Samsung 42" Plasma power supply

by Cindy3604 / July 30, 2009 8:52 AM PDT

I've read the different questions and answers about getting just a clicking noise instead of my tv coming on. It does come on, stays on for a few seconds, (I do get a picture), then goes to the "click" situation and I am assuming it is the power supply.
What is the cost related to replacing? I'm very disappointed in your product as this tv just came out of warranty and I don't know whether I want to spend money to fix it on top of the cost to own it. I know I won't buy another Samsung in the future!

The t.v. is approximately 1 1/2 yrs old but I can't locate my receipt which means I'll have to repair myself. I just want to know an approximate cost so I can decide whether to fix or junk it.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
