samsung lnt5271fx - 12 minutes to turn on - a lot of clicks

by skinyny / August 28, 2009 6:10 AM PDT

I know that there have been some other similar threads, but I'm not sure I found the answer.

I have a samsung lnt5271fx xaa which clicks and clicks for 12 minutes before turning on.

It was purchased 16 months ago at Best Buy - they were no help.

Thanks Samsung team - let me know what to do.

skinyny,

Register the unit online (gives you three extra months) and then call in to see if they'll extend the warranty to cover the part. If they won't, post a transaction number here and I'll see if I can assist. I can't promise anything for a unit out of warranty, but I'll do what I can to help.

skinyny,

Did they say it would be covered under warranty or not?

Hi Anthony,

They said that it was not covered, because I purchased it 16 months ago or something like that. They said it would be $110 for a tech to visit my home to 'diagnose' the problem and then to give me an estimate for the fix - they were unable to give me a price range for the fix. If it is too much I will go and buy a new (probably non-Samsung) machine.

Let me know what to do, as I like the television (and the company) a lot; I don't like having a lemon, however.

Thanks,
Skinyny

LNT 5271fx identical problem
by siphi / September 2, 2010 1:44 AM PDT

Hi Anthony,

I've been experiencing a similar problem to this one for several weeks now though it's gotten much worse recently. Yesterday, TV took 4 hours to turn on. Was a resolution ever found?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
