If something major happened to mine I would probably take a few hundred bucks credit towards buying a replacement model Samsung HDTV
Hyles Audio in Johnson City, NY was the closest repair shop, next nearest location was in East Syracuse (didn't ask the name)
Hyles got the go ahead from the warranty company to proceed with the repair and ordered the part last week. Unfortunately I got a call from them today saying that Samsung had no replacement part in stock.
Need to call them back tomorrow and see if I can get any more information. I'm kinda curious what happens if a part can't be located, or not located within a 'reasonable' amount of time...
For now, I've found that pulling the plug, waiting a minute or two, and plugging it back in seems to reset the TV for an hour or so.
Part of me would love to upgrade to a 1080p TV - but the 63" plasmas and 65" LCDs are still pretty pricey.
