I have a friend who does some electrical work and could probably help me out, but I wanted to know how tough it was, what's involved, etc.
Thanks for all the help in this thread!

I'll now be shopping for a replacement board, still much cheaper than buying a new TV but also a pain for only owning the TV a little over 2 years. If and when I do buy a new TV, it won't be a Samsung.

I'll report back with any success or failure.
