OK samsung sets in general suffer from bad capacitors on the powerboard, now as an overview of the problem what needs to be done first is for these capacitors to be visually examined and if found defective replaced as the cheapest option, another option is to replace the powerboard, if the capacitors turn out to be OK then attention is focused on the mainboard and this may need to be replaced, so its a step at a time procedure ideally if you can use a soldering iron and a meter it will help but is not essential at this point.

Let me know if you can do this work thank you, ***** ***** provide all the relevant info for this again a step at a time I just need to know if you\someone you know are comfortable with this as its not everyones comfort area

Let me know thank you

Thomson local would be the best bet this set is a very well known set in the service industry so their will be no problems there, please TAKE the set in don't call anyone out as their will be hidden charges for that, typical cost will be around £60 assuming the capacitors are bad

Returned set to Hughes (where it was purchased), repair will cost more than tv is worth! Paid £25.00 deposit which ill be refunded against another set bought from them.

Very good service from Hughes.

thanks
