Died in less then 5 years

Kathy, Amazon
2 December 2011
  • Summary: This WAS a great TV. Awesome picture and didn't have any problems until about 6 months ago. Started to have either the bottom half or the top half cut in and out. With some research I knew I would have to replace the Y boards soon. Not a huge deal right?

Defective, right out of the box

19 December 2007
  • Summary: I turned it on right after the delivery guy unpacked it. Loud buzzing noise comes from the back when I switch the power on. Amazon directed me to call Samsung first. I called them and they proceeded to tell me that the noise was normal but i would not take any of that.

Be aware of the BUZZ problem

M. CHEN, Amazon
19 December 2007
  • Summary: Have read all the reviews on avs forum and amazon about the buzz problem on this set, I still decided that I was gonna take the odds. It has been 3 months since the problem was first reported and I thought Samsung should have come aware of it and fixed the problem. Well, SO I THOUGHT.

Great Picture, Horrible Buzz

S. Musielak, Amazon

  • Summary: We purchased this TV with high hopes. Upon plugging it in there was a loud buzzing coming from the TV. I had a Samsung repairman come out and he said that it was normal and there was nothing they would do about it.

  • Summary: Received HP-S5053 TV yesterday, turned on last night. A very loud buzzing noise came out from the back of TV, I can hear from every corner in the house. The character on the screen seems vibrate with the noise. I called Amazon, "No return or exchange, call Samsung".
