follow up on this.
i encountered a problem with my 15-month old Samsung tv when i turned it on and it was just black. at first there was a split-second twitch of a picture then it went black but the audio is okay. i asked samsung guys to service it and they brought a main board and power supply board to test. but both replacements didn't work and they said the only remaining option is to replace the lcd panel which costs around the same price of a new lcd tv. is there any other way to resolve this? i am really disappointed because i barely use the tv and it is not covered by the warranty anymore. please help. thanks!
