I realize that this has probably been explained multiple times - I just want to confirm before calling Samsung.
For the past couple of days, my 2-year old LN46A550 has had some difficulty turning on in the morning. You hear the clicks and it almost appears to be turning itself on & off for about 30 seconds-1 minute. Finally, it will come on & everything seems to work fine.
To the best of my knowledge, this only happens with the first power cycle of the day... during the rest of the day, turning the power off & on has a normal response.
From what I've read here & elsewhere on the 'net, it looks to be the result of capacitors bulging (poor design on their part). Being that I am over a year out of warranty, I am expecting to have to pay to get it repaired (I am not mechanically inclined to do the soldering myself.
Assuming this is the issue, how much would something like this cost to repair? Are there other things that I should check on prior to calling Samsung?
