Samsung LED TV turning off and on

Mar 21, 2017 5:56PM PDT

Just bought the LED TV in November and it sounded like it was trying to hook up to a landline modem, then the screen looked like a hundred color bars and went black. It turned off and on several times and then wouldn't come back on. Around midnight, 2 hours later it came back on blasting. Had to unplug it to turn if off. Next day, it came on, did the color bar screen and went black. When it finally came back on it doesn't have a sound.

Be sure to call it in now. If from Costco, take it back and exchange it. It's what they do!

Unfortunately got it from Sams and can't take it back. I have went to Samsung and turned in a ticket regarding the problem and waiting for their response. I had registered it when I bought it, thankfully still had the receipt and sent all of that with my ticket to Samsung. But based on reading other discussions, might be waiting a while. It now won't turn on at all.

Not turning on at all is actually good news.

Dead is dead and easier to deal with in warranty claims.
