Lousy quality and no customer service from Samsung.

Summary: We purchased this set 3 years ago and already the panel (main component) doesn't work. We called Samsung and they were no help at all. Unfortunately when we purchased this unit it was a new model and there was no "track record." Now, 3 years later, and the feedback is in. A lousy TV and absolutely no help at all from Samsung. READ THE REVIEWS BEFORE BUYING. Don't count on any help from Samsung.
Summary: Okay, love the picture but, I will sacrifice picture for reliablity. My Samsung LN46B650 46 just died again. I bought the TV January 25, 2010. Less, than 2 years of ownership and the same problem just occured for the second time, there was a loud popping noise, smell of burning plastic, power light and sound stays on but, no picture. Last time it cost me over $400 to fix and the TV was just over 1 year old (8 days past warranty).
Summary: I bought this TV on July 2010, but it suddenly cannot show the pictures on screen (only black screen) a week ago regardless what kind of key i pressed from the remote controller. 'Cause it's out of warranty, I have no idea if should repair it or dump it to garbage. Called Samsung American, they give me a phone # but no one answer the phone for many times. Seems there is no service company directly reported to 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: TV started off really good...probably 4 to 5 stars. Then, shortly after the manufacturer's warranty ended, the TV started flickering regularly. After checking that it occurred on all inputs, I found numerous postings about this issue online. There's a video online with nearly 20,000 views that shows how to fix this problem in about 15 minutes. I figured before becoming my own TV service technician, I'd check with Samsung Customer Service.
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: I bought this TV 16 months ago and found it to be fair, while it was functioning. The sound sometimes phased out and became fuzzy in the midst of viewing, and the picture sometimes became grainy -- but the color was good and the menu display and navigation were good. After one bout of trouble where the sound icon appeared on its own and scrolled repeatedly from highest to lowest volume (a factory reset took care of that), the TV has no picture other than a box in the...
Summary: Picture is great and even better than the 2009 version. Sound volume also improved since the predicate version. Unfortunately, like many others have complained, it started to flicker after about 16 months. It didn't seem worth repairing it so I gave it away to someone for parts.
