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: I had a Samsung 50 inch plasma nice picture until this TV failed it looked like the common problem with the cheap capacitors installed on their TV's. Google Samsung TV repairs, they even have a class action lawsuit with this problem of this TV failing prematurely.
