Another one bites the dust lol.
I purchased mine from Walmart on Nov. 22nd(black friday). It was randomly shutting down like others reported. I first thought it was some tv setting. I thought the tv was shutting down because of inactivity or something. I got home from work yesterday(1/15) and I had a vertical green dotted line down the right side of the screen. I unplugged all the imputs and it was still there. Unplugged it for a bit and it was still there after I plugged it back in. I called Walmart and they were giving me grief over the phone that they wouldn't take it back. When I got there they let me do a clean swap for a new one no cost out of pocket. I did get the 3 year extended warranty for $60 though.
The new TV is not perfect. It has two backlight bleed spots through black colors. The spots are on the lower right corner. They are triangular in shape. I tried to rub them out with a microfiber cloth to no avail. May have to take this one back as well. Im going to let it break in a bit. Old tv had a really good picture. Little sad really. I have a 3 year warranty now so I can relax a bit. If it goes out again I will probably ask for a refund from Walmart and get a Samsung(my favorite brand).
I have the old receipt and new receipt with serial numbers at home. I'll post my old and new serial number later.
