Tonight, we powered on the TV, same thing but is not responded to leaving it unplugged for a few minutes. Did a Factory reset, cant keep the Tv on long enough to run through the settings.
Called tech support and it could be up to next Friday before we have someone out to service the TV.
How did you get the update , and I didn`t
I got the message one was coming , then after the 13th the message now longer showed up.
I took pic`s of the message and alert and e-mailed them to Samsung , but they never replied , called them... but nobody knew noth`n , so like Samsung support.
I had to have mine serviced too , main board , good luck.
Actually it must have had a bad main board from the factory , I`m think`n cold solder join , wave solder machines muck up every now and then.
God , forbid they should actually do it the right way , and hand build the boards , of course then the cost would be twice as much. ___O__well
Later , I guess there was a terminal bug in the new software that fried your set , that must be why if we want the new SH we have to pay and buy the Evo kit.
