Can anyone help me please.
Model Number: Samsung LE26R41BDX 26in LCD TV
Had it 6-7 years? been really good Tv and been pleased with it.
The last week it has been playing up. When I turn on TV after about 15 mins the picture strobes or flickers on and off. This happens on all inputs.
Turning of TV off for 20 seconds and turning back on again picture fixes it, but it soon returns to flicker / strobing after 5 mins. It is getting worse and I can't use it now
Have read that it could be either:
A) Jumper needs cutting? (but can't see a jumper on my TV model) or B) Capacitor needs replacing (but they look fine to me not bulging at top? Can they be not bulging at top and be faulty?)
there is some white plastic goo on one capacitor but think its just that? Have attached photo but will put better photo up tomorrow.
Any Ideas, i'm stuck what to do now
P.s plugged tv in with back off. After 15 mins picture started blinking. When put ear over back can hear faint. Tick, tick, tick, tick noise in time with blinking on and of picture if that helps. Blinking has spead up now 3 times a second was just once a second
