This is a Samsung LN-R283WX LCD HDTV. It didn't power on all day and the standby light was flashing. At some point in time it stopped flashing and turned on. It was working for a few hours and the next day it had the same problem. I have read that this is typically a power supply issue. Can anyone attest to that?

There are two caps on the PSU that are not exactly flat on top, a very small bulge (smaller that a mm) but not broken or leaking, it's hard to tell if that is the issue.

Should be less than a buck a piece.

Worth a try, provided somebody can safely wield a soldering iron.

I know how to solder but there is nowhere locally that I can buy the two caps in question. I can just by a working PSU for $20, which I will probably do. I was just curious if others have heard of a blinking standby light without power seems typical of a bad PSU because I don't know how to test my PSU with a voltmeter.

Where's 'locally?'

How come there are ONLY 4 Google results (2 posted by YOU
) for the model number you've given?

Chassis number?

I'm just north of tampa fl, kind of in the boonies, and the module is cheap ebay so I'm not worried.

Ha, yeah I laughed at that too. It is a fairly common samsung model too, mine is just the smaller 720p version. I typically use duckduckgo which surprisingly had more results.
