Bad Capacitors, Expensive repair, no help from Samsung.

Summary: Same bad capacitor issue. Won't power on and the repair is 80% of the cost of the TV. I had the same issue with a MacBook Pro and Apple paid 100% of the cost, no questions asked. I'll not be buying another Samsung product.
Summary: It ruined it, totally, it won't power up after just less than 3 years. A few days back, it suddently power-cycled, I thought someone pressed remote power button accidently, so didn't pay attention.
Summary: Bought this set about 3 and a half years ago. About 2months ago it started developing issues. When I turned it on at times the volume would be very loud althought it was set very low. I had to turn the tv off them back on again for it to be normalised.
Summary: Before anyone picks on the fact that this is being reviewed after an extended period, I will say that I judge quality by instantaneous performance, as well as lifetime performance - and in other words I wish I had been warned ahead of time.
Summary: Solid TV, seriously one of the best pictures even years later and includes precision back lighting (some of the newer models removed this to save on costs) and has a seriously stellar contrast ratio. 4K TVs are coming into their own but for now this is still a very solid TV.
Summary: Purchased this on March 11, 2011 and was extremely satisfied. Best picture ever. Then on June 2, 2013, the screen went black. Cable box, DVD, it did not matter.....no signal. The cable box was sending a signal to the cable company. The DVD player has sound coming out of the speakers.
Summary: Amazing picture quality out of the box. However, it went into an endless power up loop today almost 17 months after purchase. Samsung warranty lasts only 12 months. That's unreasonable for such an expensive product. Will update info on the needed repairs.
Summary: I bought this tv from Nebraska Furniture Mart back in 2010. It was a super sharp tv. One of their first 3d tvs and it did great. Picture quality was amazing. It was 240hz which helped with motion blur. For years it was great. Very sharp picture and all was grand for a while.
