    Default Fixed my 52" Samsung LCD today

    My Samsung 52' LCD has been a great TV for about 4 years now. All of the sudden when you would turn it on it started turning off and on non-stop. It would do this 30 -35 times before it would actually stay turned on. I decided to do a Google search and sure enough this is a widespread problem. I found a YouTube video that explained there are a couple of capacitors on the power supply that go bad and bulge. Since I work on electronics for a living it was a breeze. Changed 2 capacitors that I got from Radio Shack for $1.79 each. TV IS FIXED!!! Total time was about 1 hour and 20 min. SAVED big $$$$$$$$

    Not bad! With a little bit of hunting you can find tv that just need a power supply replacement. Big tv, little money!

    One of our 50" Samsungs crapped out last year, turns out it was a dead capacitor on the power supply, go figure. It was still under warranty though so it didn't cost us anything to fix it.

    Good luck. Its fairly easy if you can do small soldering!! The capacitors used were bought from Radio Shack, part number: 2721032. They are 1000uf 35v capacitors. These are not the exact part number or specs of the original capacitors, but they do work and are readily available
