I will address it as soon as I can. I'm assisting in facilitating the program, but my position doesn't allow me to make such statements.
This message board is probably visited by .0025% of the total Samsung LCD owners. If Samsung is offering a free repair service and it filled up as quickly as it did, isn't this problem much bigger issue than Samsung is currently willing to admit?
It sounds to me this is a recall issue.
My LNT4671 is doing the same thing as the other members. When turned on, it clicks for about a full minute, then finally plays the jingle and turns on.
Again, if the issue is this wide spread, this is a problem with a part and a recall should be issued to replace that part FREE of charge.
Samsung as a company needs to address this issue immediately. In a majority of the cases on this message board, this issue happens shortly after the warranty expires. We all bought Samsung TVs for their clarity, picture quality and reputation. Please address this issue for more than 50 people.
