unsightly vertical color lines in screen after only 2.5 years
30 December 2013
Summary: This Samsung TV was great until we it was ~2.5 years old, at which time it developed an inch wide of vertical color línes in the screen. These lines are there all the time, no matter what the content source is -- TV, DVD, Wii, etc. Internet search shows this isn't uncommon with the Samsung TV and is too expensive to repair :( Only 2.5 years lifetime for a TV is unacceptable. I'll look at another brand for replacement.
Summary: The screen on this unit failed after three years. The cost to repair out of pocket nearly exceeds what I paid for the TV back in 2010. I expected this TV to last much longer than three years. Samsung refuses to make it right, and I am extremely disappointed. Avoid Samsung!
Summary: I purchased this tv in April 2010. It worked fine until summer 2012, when the screen began flickering intermittently. Initially tried fixing by purchasing new HDMI cables, to no avail. At first, the flickering would happen only once in awhile, usually when watching a show live via our dish, not dvr'd shows. After several weeks, it began happening during dvr viewing and eventually even with dvds. It also went from being intermittent to being constant.
Summary: If you looking at purchasing a tv, don't look at Samsung. Walk Away. After two years, this product bit the dust. I have never had this poor quality out of a tv before. I have purchase Sony, LG, Sylvania, all have outlasted this manufacture's tv. When googling this make and model, several hits pop up identifying the problem that I had. Flickering screen (or should I say strobing screen). We started experiencing this problem two months ago.
Samsung LN64C650 (and many others) screen flickering issue - Do not buy any Samsung
21 July 2012
Summary: Just 2 years old Samsung TV (LN46C650) and it has to started to have strong screen flickering. I searched on it on the internet and now realize that all Samsung TVs in this series have a faulty power supply. And this starts to affect after about a year. What a coincidence (or is it really?) that this is just after the 1 year warranty expires.
Summary: After owning this TV for a year it started to flicker on my blu-ray and other components ... no more!!! If this helped please click the helpful button. You can also randomly send me something on my wishlist! Fixing the problem is fairly easy with a screwdriver and a wire cutters. A kid could do it! However, i don't think i will buy anymore Samsung TV's because I was devastated until i found this fix! Details on how I repaired my Samsung TV from the flicker problem.

Summary: What is it with Samsung these days? This tv started flickering 16 months in, a common experience among users. Even the timing matches: everyone gets this problem around the 1.5 year mark. I had an amp of theirs crap out from a known issue right on schedule too : 2 years in. These are just 2 of many examples you can find of Samsung products that last only 2 years.
Summary: So I am a HUGE Samsung fan that just had my bubble burst. I had loved my LN46C650 but just as the warranty was ending it started to flicker and I had to call customer service. I've actually seen this talked about alot on the web with a few people having this problem in just the past month (check it out at [...
Summary: I returned the Edge-Lit LED Samsung UN46C6300 and got this one. The Samsung UN46C6300 had horrible flashlighting and clouding issues. Viewing a black screen at night with the lights off was unbearable. This TV is a LOT better with those issues, but NOT perfect. Infact, it is BARELY acceptable. It is just ok enough for me to tolerate and not drive me crazy. There is some clouding, which is not as pronounced as the LED version.
