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.04 ECSB Custom silver & grey, Soft 8's, BFG KO's, ReadyLift Leveling Kit, Hellwig front sway bar, K&N filter, DeeZee EZ-Down, Rhino liner, Alpine CDE103BT, Rockford 6.5's, 12" V.A.T.

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
