Welcome To Just Answer,

 

My Name is John,

 

It sounds like you have done a good job so far you have a defective power supply which is REALLY common after a low voltage problem.

 

The power supply is replaceable but more than likely you have a simple enough issue that could be repaired in short order at any local shop, the power supply typically blows the secondary switching regulator and the capacitor on the board a simple fix that most shops would stock the parts.

 

If you do want to just replace the board you can order it directly from samsung at samsungparts.com

 

I would need your model number to provide the part number for you but if you have the model number you can enter it into the site and get the part information right from there.

 

Thanks,

 

john
