Thanks for not even bothering to reply, MR. Samsung tech.
Geeze, with $200 labor and what looks like $400 for svs !
I can't believe this is the "Samsung experience". $600 on a 22 month old TV ?
My Mitsubishu rear screen and two Sony XBR 27's are still working troublefree after over 21 years of marriage, when we bought them.
This is shameful.

It looks like I am one of the hundreds posted on Youtube, Hometheatershack, AV forum, and Cnet with the same problem !!

I will never, never ........................
