The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
We only use the highest quality Panasonic, Nichicon and Rubycon capacitors in our repair kits.
This Samsung LN46A550, LCD TV repair kit contains 8 capacitors needed to repair the power supply board inside your Samsung LN46A550, LCD TV. This kit does not include the large 400-450v capacitor, that capacitor may be purchased separately.
We only use high quality capacitors manufactured by Panasonic, Nichicon and Rubycon in our kits. We do not use CapXon capacitors.
Links to online instructions will be included with the kit.
If we don't have a kit for your LCD monitor or TV, we will gladly assemble one.

In January 2014 the problem recurred. It would click four or five times until it finally came on. Rats. I really like the set; it gets heavy use and I have always enjoyed its picture quality. The thought of replacing it didn't please me, so we left it on 24 hours a day while I looked for a repair kit and found this. It arrived in a few days.
Upon pulling the power board out of the television, I found that the two capacitors replaced a few years ago were not bulged, but three more were. I replaced both 25V 820's and both 25V 470's, and voila! One click and the set came on. I didn't replace the 10V 1000's because they were not showing distress and had been previously replaced under extended warranty. Similarly, I didn't use the 50V 47's because they were also not showing distress. But I kept them just in case.
I have little experience soldering and I had never desoldered anything before this repair. I own a cheap soldering iron that wasn't very effective for desoldering. In the middle of this repair I went to a home improvement retailer and bought a 100/140W iron that made the work very easy. Pull the trigger and it gets smokin' hot in a few seconds, and it got sufficiently hot that the copper desoldering braid worked really well.Read more ›
I'm keeping the spare capacitors in case any others go bad. Fixing the capacitors on this TV is a very easy, quick repair for anyone who has a minimum experience of at least building a computer/minor technical know-how.
I did have an issue receiving my order but it appears our USPS lost my first order. I sent an email asking "Where's my Stuff?" I received an email response very quickly and they sent me another which I received a few days later.
Maybe it's a little expensive for capacitors, but it was definitely worth the convenience of a one stop shop.
If you are familiar with soldering this is really pretty straight forward. It's all through hole soldering and no multi layer boards here.
I used a solder iron and solder sucker not the wire wick that was supplied.
Protip: I desoldered one at a time and refitted with the proper size. Only to bend their leads and triple check polarity NOT solder yet. Once all were placed in the holes and I rechecked polarity 10x did I solder and cut all the leads.

Picked out broken capacitors and replaced the bad ones and voir le the TV is fixed. Enough said. Could have bought only the two capacitors I needed probably for $3. Read morePublished 1 month ago by catbb
I'm sure this works fine, but my soldering gun was way to hot and I damaged the circuit board when soldering the new capacitors. Operator error on my part. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Jim M Jones
