I also here some clicking when it turns off. Four to six clicks..Could it be the on/off switch is burned out?

Samsung PN60 e7000. I found a you tube vid relating to this apparently common problem on Samsung TVs. Apparently has to do with faulty capacitors in the power board. anyone know of a tech local to Oakland CA that I could contact for a quick repair? Waiting on the authorized service people means waiting 3 days for them to even come out here...then God knows how long for the repair.

Well if anyone cares..it did turn out to be some capacitors in the power module. Apparently a very common issue with Samsung TVs.

I think the lack of responses was from the lack of knowledge about the problem. Thanks for posting the solution though!

Did a service tech come out and replace the power module, or replace individual capacitors?
