Yep I know all about them Bill I had one explode once in a vacuum tube stereo amplifier I built and it was totally destroyed with only the soldered in contacts being left on the metal frame (before PCB's were common place) plus all of the tubes were smashed and other components either bent or burnt.

My mum didn't take too kindly of the snow storm in my bedroom that resulted as there were the tiniest pieces of paper and metal fragments everywhere LOL!!

Mind you it was just as well I was facing away from the build when the dual smoothing caps let go simultaneously!! or I could have been seriously burnt or had my eyes put out.

I have changed hundreds, if not thousands, of caps on Samsung power supplies. They actually covered that repair (or replacement of power supply if needed) until recently. They aren't the only one, but if you say long time to turn on, click, click, click, it's 99% caps. A Guy

It showed odd screens while turning on too.

Yes, it will exhibit all kinds of video, and/or audio issues until the caps "pump up". Once on, the set does not use those caps. They are part of the start up circuit. The set will play indefinitely once on. if you turn it off for a while, it will go through the same behavior again. A Guy
