SamsungTV Product Registration - The S/N can't be recognized

Jul 2, 2017 5:59PM PDT

Hi , I spent 2 hours on the phone with Samsung just trying to register a new TV. Model UN55MU650DF. I bought the TV from sam's club 3 weeks ago. The serial number I got is from the back of the TV panel not from the box. I know there is an extra letter at the end. At the product registration web site, it keeps error it out and giving the "Possible reasons for the error include serial/IMEI number is not valid, product is older than 3 years, product was purchased outside the U.S.". I talked the TV support team, the guy told me the serial number is correct but they couldn't help because the error is a web site problem, not a TV problem. They transferred me to many other support teams, but none of them knew how to solve the problem.

The S/N is not recognized by the web site. Can someone from Samsung Web Support team solve this problem?

Why not let Sams exchange it?

Something's fishy about this set.

there should have been a registration card to mail for registering. If so, just fill it out and mail it in.
