The 60 inch developed problems a number of months after purchase and one of the circuit boards had to be replaced. I use the term loosely, they said it's not covered in the recall...

I certainly did not get told they would-just a cagey take it to this authorized center. Bob Curtis [email protected] me know if your tv does the same thing or you got it fixed... Nervous about the noise, I checked to see if anyone's been experiencing the same problems. If you pause what you are watching, you can't take the pause off... I have called Samsung a number of times and of course it gets sourced to India or a foreign country. Try the flashlight test - we had our 2014 Samsung "dumb" tv repaired very reasonably by having the main board replaced. I've had it with Samsung - $1000 TV & it had 2 major problems in under 3 years.

It turns out the authorized center is a one man shop who doesn't answer their phone. This seems to be happening to a lot of customers and there needs to be something done about this. We purchased a Samsung Smart TV three years ago at the cost of about $1,800. Volume delay by minutes, same with channel up and down. The tv is out of warranty as that is only one year. Pay someone to fix it or go buy another one - NOT SAMSUNG. Tonight the picture goes black and still have audio. Plus, Samsung does not seem to stand by their product!!!

Have they improved this problem in the newer models?

For the price consumers pay for these TVs you would hope they would last for the 15 years a TV is suppose to last.

Cost to replace internal power board is circa $500 AUD.

Interestingly he advised he uses another non-Samsung power supply as Samsung DOUBLED the cost of their power supplies from 0 AUD to 0 AUD last year probably due to all these issues (no other manufacturer increased their power supply replacement costs)!!!I couldn't believe that a class action lawsuit was already settled in 2010 for this same problem. They said warranty expired, can't do anything but refer me to repair center. The 55" Samsung Smart LED TV that I purchased directly from Samsung last November has died.Now what do we late-comers do to get help from Samsung? It powers itself on and off continuously with no picture or sound. The Samsung local people say they will contact us...far nothing.Only had this TV for a little over a month now and paid a lot of money for it too. Yet to call and get someone on the horn as I know hearing I will have to pay for repairs to a TV that I not 2 years ago I spilled out my hard earned for will cause me a great deal of anger.And it's taking them 2 weeks to get to my house to try to fix it and I'm waiting now as I type... Something does need to be done about these defective Samsung TVS. Bought this LED 40" TV for my bedroom from Costco in 2013. Called Samsung and they asked to do a software update. The problem could be from power panel, capacitors or the motherboard. The issue started first with the screen would go dark with sound. Had pretty much the same issue as everyone else below.I feel I should not have to buy a extended warranty to make me feel safe about spending big money for a TV that should last.
