I consulted the transaction number that you provided and verified that the agent you spoke with correctly evaluated your situation. It has been determined that only specific models exhibited a slightly higher-than-normal failure rate. Although your TV has similar symptoms, it may or may not be the same cause and has been deemed as part of normal wear and tear of the unit. The symptom can help indicate which part needs to be replaced, but it doesn't mean that the particular part was defective from manufacturing.
Samsung can refer an authorized service center to perform any needed repairs. Because you're out of warranty, the cost of any such repairs will borne by you. We are more than happy to set this service for you. If you would like to receive quotes on service from an Authorized Service Center near you please visit http://www.samsung.com/us/support/service/location and let us know where you would like for us to schedule the repair.
I have read many posts about this same problem. I tried the Facebook option and I called Samsung but they told me the same thing, I will have to pay. The TV is only 3 or 4 years old. It shouldn't be going bad already.
Please Ambassador help me get this fixed. The spots are growing exponentially by the day.
