Samsung's Financial Issues & Poor Customer Service

"Normal Wear and Tear"

This message is for those who are experiencing issues with their Samsung Products. Be prepared for Samsung to not honor their warranty or end of the bargain. This language (Normal Wear and Tear) is very typical and the most common denial without further investigation.

Unbelievable practice and poor customer service and now the blame is on me. Samsung gave me the name of their "Preferred Vendor" to come fix my TV out of warranty however, I did not receive a call and after my review of the company I found out they had horrible reviews. Getting ripped off twice would have been the icing on the cake.

Unfortunately for me it looks like my 67 inch DLP will be going into the trash after spending hard earned money and only 5 years of light use.

Keep up the great work Samsung!

Below is the Question need to be answered :

First Name :Richard
Last Name :Tutwiler
Phone :727.599.4224
Product Category:
Model # :HLT6756WX/XAA
Serial # :AJHJ3CKP900503N
Summary :Little White Dots All Over The TV.
Details :I Paid great money for my Samsung TV in ''08. Now I have little white dots all over the TV. Contacted Samsung who recommended their preferred vendor to make out of warranty repairs. After review of their preferred vendor and educating myself further I realized this is their business practice and a recurring theme with many others. For those of you in the HD TV Market prepare to spend money and keep in mind the old adage "you get what you pay for." Plan on your Samsung TV conveniently crashing after the 5 year mark or expiration of the warranty, which ever is first. Trust me they know the quality of workmanship and they need to meet the bottom line to turn a profit. Fortunately for me money is a non-issue but having gone through Panasonic, LG, Vizio I can honestly say Samsung has the best picture by far, however they have the most issues.

Their Response:

Hi Richard,

Thanks for reaching out to us. I apologize for the inconvenience and completely understand your frustration. After thorough research, it was determined that only specific models exhibited a slightly higher-than-normal failure rate. Although your TV has similar symptoms as some of these models, research indicates that your issue is due to normal wear and tear. The part that appears to have failed in your unit is not the same exact part that has been determined to fail at a higher-than-normal rate, even though the visible symptom is similar. The symptom can help indicate which part needs to be replaced, but it doesn't mean that the particular part was defective from manufacturing.

We apologize that no other accommodations can be made, but we are more than happy to set up out of warranty service for you. If you would like to receive quotes on service/labor from an Authorized Service Center near you, please visit and let us know where you would like for us to schedule the repair.

Samsung = Poor Customer Service and Warranty
I been having serious issues with Samsung Warranties and Customer Service. It's really terrible compare to Other electronic companies I have ever dealt with!

Below is what I had to experience when trying to sort out a simple USB malfunction on my Samsung Galaxy Note 2.... Never ever buying from Samsung again... Not worth the hassle...

They just destroyed my loyalty to them in 3 weeks... well done... good bye forever Samsung.
