The reports we get on this blinking lights problem are just awful. It seems everyone with a HLM set must be crossing their fingers every time they turn on the set. And we are only at the beginning of the presumed 8,000 hours of lamp life! That is not the way it is supposed to be.
Does anyone know if it is the lamp itself, or the housing, or both, or something else, that is the culprit? And are the HLN models liable to experience the same problem? Or has Samsung found a solution? I've been looking forward to buying a HLN model, but after reading these reports I'm very confused. The idea of having to cross my fingers everytime I turn the set on is totally abhorrent to me. Watching TV is supposed to be a relaxing experience, not a sword-of-Damocles suspense.
