Question about Televison & Video
I have a 32 inch Samsung LCD T.V around 3 years old. When we press the on button on the remote the T.V takes anywhere upto an hour to actually bring the picture up. The red light flashes on the power button on the T.V but no picture or sound for a substantial peiord of time.
Thanks in advance.
There are 4 capacitors on the main power board if they have what looks like black tar coming from the top of them they have blown and need replacing. They are what starts up the power circuit and hwhy it is increasingly longer each time to switch the set on. Until it finally wont come on

Samsung sent a tech to replace the failed capacitors on my 2-year-old 42". I had no warranty and they did it for free. It took the tech less than 20 mins and he had done lots of them. My suggestion is to get the serial and model number off the label on the back of the tv, noting the manufacture date at the same time, and call Samsung. It seems they heard the cry of the oppressed and owned up to their mistake of installing underpowered capacitors. You may get a freebie. I did not have to fight, threaten, or raise my voice, and there was no interminable number of hurdles to jump before I was speaking with a human being. I suggest you go to their website and get the contact info for your part of the world. By the way, initial contact with the repairman (after Samsung sent a fax to them itemizing the problem and authorizing the repair) was Thursday, and the fix was completed on the following Monday at lunch time.
