samsung 550 series trouble turning on

A few days ago when I went to turn on my t.v. and it wouldn't turn on. I can hear the switch inside the t.v. constantly clicking on and off. It does this for anywhere from 1 to 3 minutes then it finally powers up fully. Just wondering if there is a part I can replace or is my t.v. going to be useless soon? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

You are in the right forum. Now...

Now before you open it up, google BAD CAPS. Now google SAMSUNG BAD CAPS.

Don't get too upset but try calling it in to 1800SAMSUNG and above all, be nice and see if they offer a free one time repair. If not, get that TRANSACTION NUMBER and post it to your discussion.

Thanks Bob!

Thank you so much for your quick reply. I called the Samsung number you posted and they agreed to repair the tv for free. Thanks again so much for your help. It is much appreciated.

Thanks for the update.

That's a lot easier than self repair.
