Thumbs down

Is it just me or did anyone else notice how Samsung removed YouTube app from their ES7100 series? Same thing happened to my EH5300 series TV in spare bedroom.

Why when you turn on game mode it becomes so bright? The brightness or contrast calibration doesn't change but it still gets super bright, why?
It should be called torch mode....

Interesting. I've been having similar issues with my UN60ES7100 for over a year now but never bothered to tinker with it because I didn't care too much for the network connectivity. At the start, the wifi connection worked fine though it was definitely slow and there was constant buffering when using youtube. Then after a few months, the connection just disappeared. Then almost a year later the wifi came back again automatically because I noticed SmartHub was auto-updating. The TV and my router never moved an inch within that year and the connection just magically came back. Bizarre. Anyway, a few months later, the wifi again disappeared.

A few days ago, I moved my router into my living room and put it right next to the TV so I can use a wired connection to it. The TV connected to it at the start, but the connection is unstable and it disconnects after 3 minutes. Worse, the TV now freezes whenever I press the SmartHub button or want to check any network settings from the TV menu. It freezes and won't respond to any buttons on the remote, then automatically turns off, then turns back on again.

Should I just try a reset on it?
An update: the situation is now even worse. I've avoided using any network function on it just so that it won't freeze. But this weekend, it did the off-on thing every 5 minutes. I know there are numerous accounts of this problem in other threads. Sounds like either a capacitor issue, the power board, the main board, or the ribbon that connects the two. I took the back panel off the TV and the capacitors on the power board look fine. The individual components are easy enough to take apart and replace, but searching online it looks like these parts are out of stock everywhere! I'm assuming it must be a large number of these sets have problems.

Anyway, I'm stumped now and will probably call Samsung (out of warranty) or a TV repair place. Pretty sure it would be cheaper to just do it myself, but can't find the parts anywhere.

The weird thing is the off-on cycle happens every 5 minutes.... on the friggin dot. What kind of defect would cause this?
