Hey guys! I had some questions. Back about a month ago I bought the F7100 and after an hour of being on it would power cycle automatically. I could turn it off a minute before an hour and turn it right back on and it would last for another hour exactly. So I returned it and got the F8000 series instead thinking different model and it shouldn't happen. I was wrong. It also did it. I called Samsung and they sent a tech out which replaced the main board and the power supply on the unit. Turned it, an hour later it turned off and back on again. I was so fed up with Samsung. I kept trying to tell them it was a firmware issue, which I still believe is true, but they said that the firmware would have absolutely nothing to do with this. So I went out and bought a new Panasonic plasma panel and it works a charm, but now I'm thinking of getting yet another new TV for my bedroom and I loved the picture quality on the Samsung LED F7100/F8000 far more so I was wondering if anyone had heard of this issue. I saw some posts from Piratescove with the Cinema Black being on Med/High and it power cycling, but I always had that set to off. I'm nervous about spending the money again on a panel that will just keep doing this.
So i guess my real question is, is this a firmware issue that I was having? Do you think this has been resolved? Has anyone else had this issue? Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
