Looking for a good 32" TV for less than $300...

Recommended Posts

The "capacitor plague" as it was known was HUGE. There was a chinese company who stole an incomplete electrolyte formula, millions of capacitors were made with these caps in, even today I'm still repairing equipment with these capacitors in. Any device using them is at risk, not just Samsung stuff.

It isn't a problem with newer solid state caps, but I generally only use Japanese capacitors in my repair business, most of the crappy ones are Chinese brands like Chang, once I replace them the equipment never comes back for more repairs.

To the OP, I'll gladly take your old TV off your hands, where are you based? USA? I'm in the UK.

Do the newer Samsung TVs have better capacitors?
