Samsung TV LED 46" 6600 14months old lost power

by Maz67 / December 6, 2012 7:10 PM PST

Purchased 14 months ago and it suddenly "died". No screen, no audio. After switching off and leaving 1hr, switched back on and worked. One day later, after switching on for about 1hr it died again.
It's 2 months out of warranty and going to cost heaps to have a technician come to have a look at it.
Has anyone else had the same problem?

Get a Vizio

I've always been a Vizio fan myself. I've been through a number of TVs over the years because I usually keep them on all the time. Its always hard to pick a new TV because of all the different specs and features that are constantly coming out . Pricing for what features the TV has is a big issue I find myself struggling with. One thing I always do is check reviews and pricing on sites like www.tvrevs.com or other sources and check out some reviews on the brand your thinking about getting. Just my two cents.
