ryuduo,

I'll try to help with the only suggestion I have.

If you register your television online, in some cases it will extend the warranty up to 3 additional months:

Then try to call 800-SAMSUNG back and note that you'd like to see if they could work with you on extending the warranty enough to handle this situation. It's ultimately up to them, but I can't diagnose a problem without actually looking at it, and maybe we can get someone who can.

I hope we can earn your business in the future.
