Hi Emily,
 
A couple of years ago,I fixed the 'planned obsolescence' under-rated capacitors (10volt rated on a 12volt power supply - they just last long enough to run out the warranty/extended warranty, i.e.: 5+ years) that Samsung choose to put in these TV's, for a cost of $3.60 (capacitors are REALLY cheap!) and a half-hour labour taking off the back, removing the connectors and unscrewing the power supply board (which is smack in the middle of the workings of the TV, and the first thing you see when the back comes off) unsoldering the faulty capacitors, re-soldering the 20volt ones and putting the whole thing back together.
 
I wonder how many Samsung TV's are at the dump that could have been fixed for $3.60?
 
I'm not sure if this is what's causing your problem, but it's such nan easy and cheap fix, that it can't hurt to try it. My TV at that time was working ok, just taking ages to come on- up to 15 minutes! Eventually, it didn't come on at all, and we were shopping around for a new one, when my wife thought of checking the internet for a cause. If we'd called in a repairperson, the chances are he or she would have replaced the power supply - and we'd have had a bill for several hundred dollars.

The TV cost us $1500 in 2010, and the nearest equivalent would have cost $900 when we were looking before I fixed it, so it's worth trying to fix it yourself.
