Samsung LCD TV's are really easy to repair.
I've done two repairs in the past few months. Both had the VGA connection go bad (it was being used in a church where it is connected and disconnected every week, the circuit board has little reinforcement and the board cracked due to fatigue).
Parts are available on eBay from people parting out ones with broken LCD's. I needed a tuner board. Samsung sold the board for about $200. Ebay $60. Swap was all of about 10 minutes worth of work.
Be sure to open the back and get the part number off the board, as Samsung makes mid model parts changes.
The insides of the Samsung LCD's have remarkably few parts:
Tuner card, where the video sources plug in.
Power supply board, where the power cord plugs in.
Front panel connector, for the front buttons.
There are a few ribbon cables between those parts for connections. Overall it's not much harder than swapping a motherboard.

Does anyone know how to fix a flat screen tv. I my daughter unplugged it and plugged it back in. Now just clicks continuously but won't turn on.
