run and hide samsung tech
I am trying to repair a lnt4661fx for a coworker. It would have clicking sounds and power off, progressively getting worse till it wouldn't even power on. I replaced 7 caps on the power board. 5 were bulging and 1 of those 5 was leaking. Now I have the same problem everyone else here has; powers up, beeps a tune, screen turns gray(on with no picture) and shuts down after @ 15 seconds. I have read every post on this thread and something smells rotten from Samsung and Samsung Tech is just running with his tail between his legs. He's giving standard robotic answers and is worthless. I'm going to look over all the PC boards for bulging caps. I read on a different site that Samsung used 10v caps when they should have used a minimum of 12v, like most of them are. I used 35v for the 7 I replaced already. I am looking to buy around a 55" TV after the holidays and it won't be a Samsung!!.
