My Samsung TV is only a few years old and has never given me

Customer Question

My Samsung TV is only a few years old and has never given me the least trouble. Tonight it just went off and will not turn on. Time for a new TV?
JA: How old is your Samsung, and have you tried unplugging it and leaving it off for a few hours?
Customer: I tried for a few seconds, not hours.
JA: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?
Customer: It will no even make the intro sound nor will the blue light come on. It does make repeated clicking sounds then gives up.
JA: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?
Customer: I was watching a recorded program and at first I thought I had accidentally hit the remote until I noticed the dvr was still running.
JA: Anything else you want the TV expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: No

If you see any messages particular ones for a phone call they are not from me but the site, I do not use the phone call facility myself, only this texting method which I consider the best way forwards, if however you want to use the phone call option this will go to a board for another tech to take up, if a tech considers this viable by phone he will ring you, otherwise if you do not want it please ignore it thanks.
