Bought a 50" Samsung lcd 2 1/2 yrs ago and worked fine. Yesterday noticed there was some red in the left center of the screen but did disappear and came home and tv wont turn on. It clicks 2 or 3 times and then clicks a couple more times and never comes on. Anyone know what this is. OF COURSE the store we bought the tv from went out of bus.
