I own a Samsung Plasma Television. I assume the common issue

Customer Question

I own a Samsung Plasma Television. I assume the common issue of a failed Capacitor has occurred. Model is PS42C451B2D. I have read on the Internet ; this was a common problem. Will Samsung replace the failed unit.? How much will it cost to repair ?
JA: How old is your Samsung, and have you tried unplugging it and leaving it off for a few hours? I'm not sure of the exact price, but there's only a $5 deposit. The rest of the price information will be on the page I send you to.
Customer: The Television is 5 years of age
JA: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?
Customer: Clicks ; but does not illuminate.
JA: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?
Customer: Happened over night. Just wouldn't turn on after the "click". No usual music sound as it responds.
JA: Anything else you want the TV expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: I understand it's a common problem with Samsung TVs of that age vintage. Is it worth repairing ?
