LCD ? TV + Monster Cables (trade mark)

CNET error.
I am actually = CDN-Ontario


I just purchased a new Samsung LCD TV.

When I carefully removed my ?RCA? ?Monster? (Trade Mark) cables, from my old TV, it destroyed all of my RCA TV connections.
?Monster? (Trade Mark) ?RCA? cables, fit very very tight onto the outer shields, of the RCA jacks.
Local TV repair shops have also confirmed that weak mounted RCA jacks are destroyed, when using ?Monster? (Trade Mark) cables.

There are three (x3) main different types of RCA jacks, mounted to the TV PC board.
The outer shield of the jack, is mounted by:
- Two (x2) tiny bent, pressure contact nibs.
- Full metal wrap, around RCA jack, module.
- a complete one (x1) pc. shield, for all RCA jacks.

There will be a time, when I will be removing my ?Monster? (Trade Mark) cables, from my new Samsung LCD TV.
If my TV RCA connections, are destroyed, am I still covered under ?Manufacturing? Warranty ? (1Year) ?
If my TV RCA connections, are destroyed, am I still covered under ?Extended? Warranty ? (5 Year) ?

It is a very well known fact, that ?RCA? - ?Monster? (Trade Mark) cables, fit very very tight onto the outer shields, of the RCA jacks.
I personally feel that the outer shields of the RCA jacks, are ?too? thick, not allowing, or limiting any outer expansion.
There are Heavy Duty RCA cables available, that have thin outer walled connections, for an easier fitting.

Lets ?not? get into any technical law suits.
- Samsung Technical Support, can ?not? recommend or suggest what (trade mark) cables to use.
- Samsung Technical Support, can suggest to use Good Heavy Duty RCA cables.

- Should we the consumer, be ?very? concerned, when we must press very hard, to connect the RCA cables, to a Samsung item ?
- Should ?Samsung Technical Support? advise us, the consumer, ?not? to use any RCA cables, requiring excessive force, for connecting the RCA cables?

Thanks. CDN-Ontario
