Experience with Samsung's TV warranty replacement?

by jb21sa / June 24, 2012 6:51 PM PDT

I have a UA55D7000 which I purchased last year and have had numerous problems from it getting a virus, then they replaced the motherboard and i lost the ARC function in the HDMI port. They then came out and changed the mother board again to a new one, put it back up on the wall and as the tech was packing up i went to retune the TV and it wouldn't go past the start up screen. So lucky the tech was still around to try and fix it otherwise i would have had to log ANOTHER job! the Tech couldn't fix it and it was decided to escalate the issue with Samsung. this was monday week and i called on Thursday and Samsung said they where waiting for a case manager to look at it and would call me back in the afternoon... No call so i called back friday mid morning and they once again said they would call back in the afternoon... no call i then called last thing friday to see if anything had been done and all i got was call back first thing monday morning... so i called this morning and got told to call back at midday. i did and i finally got to talk to a Case Manager and he offered a replacement of a ES7500. at this point i just wanted a TV so i said let me look up the specs and call you back. The specs are similar just some new gimmick apps but i called back to approve this and i couldn't get a hold of the Case manager so i spoke to another one confirmed everything and that was it easy! After feeling refreshed that something was happening i decided to write a Compliment letter in regards to the case manager but i forget there name... :? so i called back to ask for his name and they persisted to ask if i wanted to accept his offer of a new TV!! my response was i approved this at midday! nothing was recorded nothing noted so it begs the questions...

1. has anyone had experience with this, will i need to hold their hands through it
2. is the exchange from a D7000 to a ES7500 decent?

We see PCs get such a thing but a TV?

Anyhow, there is a post at the top of this forum to feedback on service issues.

TIP! Keep records and those TRANSACTION NUMBERS Samsung tracks all this with.

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?
