Fine at first, but screen flickering badly after a couple of years.

Summary: Purchased five years ago. Was fine for the first couple of years, and then the screen began showing an intermittent flickering which got progressively worse with time. An internet search revealed that all the screen sizes in this series (LN##C) are susceptible to the issue due to a faulty power...
Flickering 1.5 years in: Sunsung now makes disposable equipment

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.
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.
Samsung does not fix well known power on/capacitor issue
19 July 2010
Summary: My 46" Series 650 Samsung LCD stoppped power up last month. Called Samsung several times and they would not cover their well known capacity issue. Each time, I got different date requirements that seem to change and always seemed to be a month or 2 off from what my set had (very convenient).
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.
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.
unsightly vertical color lines in screen after only 2.5 years
19 July 2010
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.
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.
