Samsung Smart LED Smart TV 60" SHUTS OFF AND ONW

I seen a lot of post of people having the same issues I'm having with my tv, its only two years old and out of warranty but I did pay $1400 So you'd think it would have a longer life. It started turning off and on a few months ago and I just let it slide that was until it started doing it more frequently to the point where It's will be on a power cycle mode that I can't even pull the menu screen on well I finally called the geek squad and they charged me $110 to tell me that the mother board was out and that it would cost me about $1000 to get fixed, for that price I might as well buy a new tv. I'm very dissappointed with Samsung. Is anyone else having the same problem and if so how did you fix it?

You didn't hear it from me.

Extend the warranty and wait the 30 days required to make the claim. I really shouldn't tell folk of this out as some come back with flames that things should last longer. But hey, there's an exit and cheaper than a new TV. The entire idea of extending warranty is for the situation you are in. That is, where did the maker write it will last X number of years? I seem to upset folk by writing these are 5 year designs.
