Is my Samsung LE26R87BD worth repairing?


Standard Member
Hi Guys
If ever there were a vast array of knowledge on all things TV it would be here!
Hopefully someone may have an idea as to what im talking about?
Weve have a samsung LCD tv (LE26R878BDX) thats about 5 years old now.

Over the last year weve noticed its taken slightly longer to turn on than normal, with the led in centre power button flashing slowly as it starts.
Over the last couple of months, every so often the screen would fail to start but could still hear the sound.
The only remedy is to turn it off at the wall, leave it for about 10 seconds and then turn it on,

My main concern is that TV's are so cheap in sales nowa days I didnt want to pay excessive repair fees, for it possiblly to get another fault in 6 months?

Thanks for your advice.
Thats pretty much what i was hoping to hear, with it been several years old I didnt want to waste cash on it
I have actually just noticed another larger thread i could of added to, which suguests it could be a couple of things but sounds fairly simple task if you know what your doing!

Thank you for taking the time to respond
