Samsung TV Capacitor Problems - DO NOT BUY THEIR LED TVs or ANY of THEIR TVs!!!!
This sounds like a conspiracy to me by TV manufacturer Samsung to force people into buying new TVs. Seems that their capacitors on the LCD TVs blew after 1 - 3 years, requiring a trained tech to replace them; well my LED TV that I got six months ago just blew a capacitor. It clicks trying to come on endlessly. Its dead. This is BS. There are numerous problems with there TVs

DO NOT BUY ONE, and if you have one you purchased recently I heard they are repairing this problem for free because they are currently being sued for it. DO NOT PAY FOR THE REPAIR WORK!

[link to www.google.com]

These are older threads on it, but the problem is now proven to exist in the LED TVs, and probably in the 3D TVs as well. Bad capacitors. DO NOT BUY SAMSUNG PRODUCTS!

Class action suit:

Apparently, the link to the class action suit is now dead because it was started in 2010. They must have settled. The now need a new suit for the LED TVs, because this one died after only 6 months! BASTARDS!

well I own a samsung and I love it
great picture

capacitor went out after 2 years

$10 bucks to fix it
new capacitor at radio shack
youtube videos show how to do it
samsung will replace it for free if it fails the first year
they would have fixed mine for free, but the nearest service center was 3 hours away, and the fuel cost was more than the capacitor

btw it isn't only samsung, most of the led tv has low wattage capacitors

I avoided Samsung after a very bad experience years ago. I bought a second product due to lack of choice with the feature I needed, but I will not buy them again if I can help it.

our samsung led flat screen 50" went out THREE TIMES. the first two times, they sent a technician with new parts. the tech said each repair cost samsung $1000....we only paid $799 for the TV!! after it blew out for a third time in less than a year, samsung sent us a brand new tv...this one is bigger and has more features. so i guess it worked out for us.

my daughter has the exact same TV that we had...hers hasn't had a single problem.

i have a samsung android phone (service thru sprint) and it sucks.

I have a Samsung plasma, power went out after 5 years. Just a flashing blue power ring and some clicking. A few screws and a look, swollen caps. Ordered a new main power board and an aux power board just in case and it was fixed. Fairly easy, just needed help getting it off the wall and onto its stand. It helps if you have a direct plug into the wall, a power strip can rob a steady power flow to the TV. A battery back up power supply works really well.

My Samsung LCD TV broke down after 2 years old. It would have cost about $1,000 to fix. They would not cover it. It was out of the warranty. I refuse to buy a Samsung product ever again.

Folks, I'd like to sing a song about the American dream.
About me, about you, about the way our American hearts beat way down in the bottom of our chests. About the special feeling we get in the cockles of our hearts, maybe below the cockles, maybe in the sub-cockle area, maybe in the liver, maybe in the kidneys, maybe even in the colon. We don't know…

I'm just a regular Joe with a regular job.
I'm your average white suburbanite slob.
I like football and porno and books about war.
I've got an average house with a nice hardwood floor.
My wife and my job, my kids and my car.
My feet on my table and a Cuban cigar.

But sometimes that just ain't enough to keep a man like me interested (oh no) no way (uh-uh). No, I've gotta go out and have fun at someone else's expense.
(oh yeah) yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah.

I drive really slow in the ultra-fast lane,
While people behind me are going insane.
I'm an asshole (He's an asshole, what an asshole)
I'm an asshole (He's an asshole, such an asshole)

I use public toilets and piss on the seat,
I walk around in the summertime saying "How about this heat?"
I'm an asshole (He's an asshole, what an asshole)
I'm an asshole (He's the world's biggest asshole)

Sometimes I park in handicapped spaces,
While handicapped people make handicapped faces.
I'm an asshole (He's an asshole, what an asshole)
I'm an asshole (He's a real fucking asshole)

Maybe I shouldn't be singing this song
Ranting and raving and carrying on
Maybe they're right when they tell me I'm wrong…

You know what I'm gonna do? I'm gonna get myself a 1967 Cadillac Eldorado convertible, hot pink, with whale skin hubcaps and all leather cow interior and big brown baby seal eyes for headlights. Yeah! And I'm gonna drive around in that baby at 115 miles an hour, getting 1 mile per gallon, sucking down quarter pounder cheeseburgers from McDonald's in the old-fashioned non- biodegradable Styrofoam containers! And when I'm done suckin' down those grease ball burgers I'm gonna wipe my mouth on the American flag and then toss the Styrofoam containers right out the side, and there ain't a God-damned thing anybody can do about it. You know why? Because we got the bombs, that's why!

Two words--nuclear fucking weapons, OK? Russia, Germany, Romania - they can have all the democracy they want. They can have a democracy cakewalk right through the middle of Tiananmen Square and it won't make a lick of difference, because we’ve got the bombs, OK? John Wayne's not dead - he's frozen! And when we find a cure for cancer, we're gonna thaw out the Duke and he's gonna be pretty pissed off. You know why? You ever taken a cold shower? Well, multiply that by 15 million times. That's how pissed off the Duke's gonna be.

I'm gonna get the Duke and John Cassavetes and Lee Marvin (Hey) and Sam Peckinpah (Hey) and a case of whisky (Hey) and drive down to Texas… (Hey, Hey, Hey)

(Hey you know you really are an asshole)
Why don’t you just shut up and sing this song pal.
