Any idea how much it will cost to replace the power board on it? Do I have any recourse through Samsung? Damned TV is 2.5 years old, spent over $2k on it and it is 100% dead. It just died right in the middle of watching it two nights ago - no sounds, no sparks, just turned off. Six months out of warranty...TV worked fine until then, no problems.
I've unplugged it from my power conditioner and plugged it straight into the wall outlet. No standby light, no sounds when I push the power button on the remote or hit the power button on the TV itself.
After reading quite a bit on the web about other Samsung owners having similar issues I am flat out frustrated that this happened. It seems that Samsung has really dropped the QC ball from a longevity standpoint - no TV should break like this after 2.5 years of normal use.
OK, rant off - anyone have a similar problem? How much did it cost to get fixed? Thanks.
