I have a 32 inch Samsung smart TV and following a recent power cut it stopped working when the power came back on. Been reading about the power surge problems Samsung have had so bought a new PSU and have just replaced it. However it still doesn't fire up. The screen does now go blue as if it is nearly going to do it but not quite. So a bit more sign of life but still not there. Could the fault be somewhere else

I have a brand new PanasonicTx-132e6b Led Fhd TV which was installed for me by the store's engineers. It is working well apart from a very irritating cracking noise apparently coming from the casing or thereabouts. This is at its worst during the first 90 minutes after switching on and for some time after switching off. What is this and can it be rectified? Or is it something that settles down with time? Obviously as I have only just bought this tv I need to be sure that there isn't a fault with the tv or installation.Your advice would be appreciated.RMF
