About a year ago the red light started blinking and it wouldn't turn on. I took it in and the guy replaced some capacitors. It happened again and he replaced more of them in another place. It has started happening again.

I'm thinking about getting a new one - at $100 pop for repairs its getting close to being even. The Samsungs get great reviews, but I do NOT want to run into the same problem again. I'd rather buy a Panasonic or LG.

Judging from your post the set must be a few years old. I have not noticed the cap problem in the newer sets. If the set is breaking down like clockwork I would go with replacing it.

yeah, its about 3 1/2 years old.

I'm glad to hear that problem may be gone. I love this TV but for this problem and started using better caps. I may look at this brand.

thanks.
