    Samsung M87 - Power On Fault

    My Samsung M87 wont switch on...
    Every time I switch on the mains I can hear a relay clicking in/out with the red LED on the power button flashing.
    I have to switch the mains on/off several times before it will switch on from the front button.
    Its 2 years old so no warranty with Samsung and Martin Dawes inform they went bust last July so no cover under sale of goods act.
    Im thinking its deffo a fault on the power board maybe a dodgy cap or relay...
    Before I open it up anyone have a service manual/schematics or general advice ?

    Thanks in advance
    Found this...looks like the caps are suspect...

    Update, replacing the caps on the power board did the trick.

    Thanks to Betas for the PM.
