I have a 42" Samsung LCD tv which had no power. Im aware of the capacitor problems with samsung and called the manufacturer. Luckily they sent a repair tech, even though this tv was no longer under warranty, who replaced the capacitors which were bad. Samsung covered this replacement and I was not charged.

However my tv was still not getting any power and I was told that the power supply also needed to be replaced. I was quoted $150 to do the job.

I found the power supply online (shopjimmy.com) for about $60 - half of the part price I was quoted. They quoted me a labor charge of $30 and I can order the part and bring it in to them to replace. However I'm wondering if it's difficult to replace the part myself.

Thoughts? Ideas?

$30 is a steal for labor.

Usually there is a minimum ~$75 just to deal with you.

They already received payment for labor and parts and house visit from Samsung for the capacitors replacement... which is likely why they are charging me $30 instead of more, I would guess that they've already made a profit at this point.

There isn't alot of information online on how to replace a power supply but from what I've seen there's no soldering involved and it's pretty clear cut. If it's something I could do myself it would really help me out.

Thanks!

Plug 'n Play.

Remove plugs, marking if you must;
remove fasteners;
swap boards;
install fasteners & plugs;
Done.
