1. TV has run perfectly for over 3 years
2. A/C went out, house is 95 degrees inside (Florida), maybe even a bit more.
3. Two days in a row in this heat, after TV on for a couple hours, noticed an odd burning/electrical/plastic kind of smell. Both times turned off TV immediately.
4. The TV worked fine, even during both events, and still works at this time.
Now I've heard all about the bad Korean caps from 2006 to 2008 or more, and about many Samsung failures of that time, usually bad capacitors. My model was NOT in the settlement, but it does have Korean caps. After research:
4. Took off back cover, examined all the capacitors very closely, no evidence of burning, bulging, etc. All look great. Can find no evidence of burning anywhere.
5. Cap's are all from Korea: Samwha, Sam Young, etc.
Could this be due to the 95 degree heat in the house?
Should I wait, try TV again after a/c is fixed (keep house at 78 to 80 degrees),or would it be better to replace all the caps now on all boards? Personally I'd rather wait, but I don't want to tempt fate and cause further damage beyond bad caps.
