Customer:

Hi,

Thank you for using Just Answer my name is ***** ***** I will help with your question.

I am afraid to say it could be a number of things that could cause that fault, Does the tv click at all?

Customer:

Would you look at repairing the set yourself?

JACUSTOMER-gdgh9ew0- : Hi Carl thanks for coming back
JACUSTOMER-gdgh9ew0- : no the to doesn't click
JACUSTOMER-gdgh9ew0- : Sorry this keeps cutting out! No to doesn't click and we wouldn't repair it ourselves
Customer:

It is likely that it could be the power supply some samsungs suffer from bad capacitors your model does have a problem with capacitors but that may not be the problem.

I am able to suggest a tv repairer in your area if you send me your postcode?

Customer:

I am afraid that it is not likely to come back to life without repair. Have you had any trouble before like slow startup or random turning off?

JACUSTOMER-gdgh9ew0- : Thanks carl
JACUSTOMER-gdgh9ew0- : it has been whistling a bit at times
JACUSTOMER-gdgh9ew0- : not turned itself off
JACUSTOMER-gdgh9ew0- : our postcode is RH 14 0sh
JACUSTOMER-gdgh9ew0- : do you know if Samsung cover a capacitor problem even if outside warranty ?
Customer:

I dont think samsung do cover it, It would be good if they did as it was poor capacitors that cause the problems but many capacitors fail a few years outside warranty.

Customer:

I use a trade forum and many members advertise on the forum this member is closest to you.

Customer:

Many engineers will charge an inspection charge for looking at plasma tv as they can be time consuming
