Always keep in mind the chip that needs replacing is not a design defect but a life span issue. These chips are showing up in all makes with much shorter life spans than predicted. And again, the causes are well known.

You can find stores like shopjimmy dot com that sells the chip and may have a video on the work or...
Call it in and see if Samsung will offer the labor only repair. Both cost about the same.

Thank you, Samsung! I knew this was the right product to own. Samsung stood behind their product and for that, I will continue to a be a loyal customer. I can't say how impressed I was with how quick the problem was taken care of!
