I have a Samsung color HD tv model LNT4071FX/XAA that worked

Customer Question

I have a Samsung color HD tv model LNT4071FX/XAA that worked wonderfully until about six months ago and now we have some trouble getting it to come on. Sometimes it comes right on then other times it takes two or three times before it will come on. It makes the tone like it is coming on and the blue light comes on but the picture does not come on. Do you know what the problem might be? Is it possible to get this repaired?

Hello , my name is***** can help you with this problem. The problem you are experiencing now is typical to weak/vented capacitors on the power board that this serie of Samsung was famous for I`m afraid.Easy way to repair this is usually by replacing the power board for a cost of approx. 60 to $80 and if you are interested on doing this yourself then I can give you the details .Otherwise you may be looking at a cost of 200 to $250 to have this done at home and considering the age of the tv , would think about it twice.
