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.
Hey, what's sup? I am in a little problem here, and being the poor college student I am, this only makes a bigger hole in my pocket!
I bought a Samsung LN40A530 right when Circuit City went out. The tv gave me some problems, but wasn't a big issue. It's been just a little over a year. My tv will not turn on anymore, and the red LED just blinks.
I called Samsung and they said that they will send in a technician, and since it was over warranty, I am liable for all the charges. I agreed to having them diagnose it and tell me what is wrong. The man came and said that I needed to replace the powersupply. They said it had to be on back order and would take a long time, uncertain of the time it would be available.
I finally got the powersupply and had a technician install it, but only to encounter the same problem. The tv just sits there blinking its red LED.
I understand that my tv is out of warranty, it's been a few months at most, over, but I would really appreciate some help on this matter. I've got many Samsung LCDS at home, which have all been working very well and up and running for over 6-8 years. I am very disappointed at the failure of this TV along with having to spend so much money at attempting to repair it. I've been a loyal Samsung customer, had cellphones before that gave me no problems. The TV cost a bundle, and would hate to get rid of Samsung.
Thank you for your help!
