Summary: After 2 years, this Plasma TV cycles on/off for 5 - 10 minutes when first turned on. Samsung says they have no idea what the problem is. Referred me to "local" service who was 2 hours away. When contacted, they didn't service my area. Called Samsung back, they referred me to another service company 30 minutes away and their phone is disconnected.
Summary: We had been using our new 50" Samsung plasma TV for 5 weeks, all of the sudden while we're watching TV a loud noise comes out of it and a line starts appearing on the screen. It turned out to be a crack on the panel, but in the inside. The TV is not even mounted, we didn't touch it, didn't do anything to it and it's been sitting there for 5 weeks. A Tech sent by Samsung looked at it and specify to Samsung that there was no external damage, not a a scratch...
