He replaced the network adapter in less then 15 minutes, and viola, it works!
He did tell me that Samsung did get a batch of bad network adapters, it is common in some of the Samsung products, from TV's to microwaves.
Samsung is aware of it, and have the replacement parts available. The replacement part was a brand new part, not refurbished or anything like that. I also verified that the warranty does not get extended, I verified this by calling Samsung directly. The repair was completely FREE.
I would suggest contacting Samsung to get your TV repaired.
I will include some pictures for you
So this is the defective piece. It literally took him less then 15 minutes to change it out.
This is the power supply of the TV.
This is the Motherboard of our TV.
I don't really recall what this is... sorry.
I was a bit worried, but the technician was very professional and very skilled.
The technician did say that once the part is replaced it should not give the same problem.
