3 BAD SAMSUNG TVS...

by JSeide3636 / December 24, 2010 1:51 AM PST

just about two years ago, i purchased 3 samsung tvs, 2 32" LCD's and a 40" LCD.. since that time ALL THREE tvs have broke, the 2 32" tvs power supplies both have went bad ( plugged into surge protectors ) and the 40" decided to just have a pink screen one day.. now how can such a big name in the industry sell such ****** products, and do nothing about it and also do nothing to keep the customer base happy??

Supply the transaction numbers from your calls so they can see what's up.

There is a BAD CAPS issue with this and other makers which is worth noting. Samsung does some one time repairs for free on some models but your post didn't tell if you called in.

Samsung Power Supply Issue

Did you say that you have a $1.50 Fix? I have a Samsung LN46A650 that will not turn on anymore. It keeps clicking and trying to turn on, but will not. It had been taking 10 minutes to turn on; now it wont at all. Any ideas for an inexpensive fix? Or do I chalk this up to designed obsolescence? It is 2-3 years old.

This one may be the old same old BAD CAP problem.

If you type BAD CAPS on google.com you learn that it's not a Samsung exclusive and how to spot a BAD CAP.

If you type SAMSUNG BAD CAPS you find thousands of folk that fixed it. If you type SAMSUNG BAD CAPS YOUTUBE you find videos on it.

The internet lets you find out more.

Then again I see folk call it in and get the free ONE TIME repair for free. Your research, your choice.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
