Samsung HPT4254 40 inch plasma clicking on and off

by Cinbad51 / August 2, 2011 8:42 AM PDT

The TV is clicking on and off. Will not stay on for more than 3 minutes and after a few minutes of clicking it turns itself back on! Saw that MANY people were having the same problem so I called the 800 number and was told by Lynn that they only come out to do a fix on the LCD. "DONE DEAL" is what she advised me. Your plasmas are having the same PROBLEMS as the LCD. Mine was manufactured in 2007. Please help. I am not satisfied with the response from the customer service rep.

If they didn't give you one, call in again and get another.

The transaction number is 2108347434. It is a 42 inch plasma not a 40 inch.. I hope we can come to a resolution on this since here are hundreds of posts on the internet and a few YouTube videos circulating. Samsng is definitely aware of this problem with there defctive Caps. You customer service rep. LYNN said she has no knowledge of ANY problems!! That is hard to believe. The LCD consumer was offered a one time fix for the same problem and not for the plasmas.
