Hi Shahid. My name is ***** ***** I'm ready to proceed .No, but I don't recall ever seeing it. It started up in the normal manner and switches over to Sky. It is currently working but last night it was unwatchable, it did it a few weeks ago and starts playing up when it gets warm

Thanks Marc for the info, how old is the TV?

The clicking noise sounded like a relay and at times there was a hissing sound

Marc, it seems main board related problem in TV, have you tried to upgrade TV firmware (internal software)?If not yet, please go to following Samsung link and download Firmware Upgrade file along with Upgrade Guide that contains detailed instructions to proceed.. http://www.samsung.com/uk/support/model/UE46B6000VWXXUIf firmware update doesn't fix the issue then I'm afraid it would be hardware related problem and main board of TV is failing, replacement of main board in TV will help to resolve the issue. I trust my input will help you out.

I did read on the web that there is an issue with some capacitors not man enough. Although not confident I will have a look with the back cover off, obviously unplugged. While I've got you, are control cards readily available, and if so, are they affordable?
Expert:  Shahid replied 1 year ago.
There was bad capacitors issue in few models few years back but your TV doesn't have that chassis. Please get the part number off of label pasted on main board of TV to search/ google it to get price and stock info to order the main board and hopefully it would still be available.Thanks.
