Well in my case, I just had muting problems. As soon as the firmware was updated and the TV rebooted, that is when it became broken.
I am too far out in the boonies for any one to come and service it, but I might check and replace the parts myself and see what happens.
Maybe I can email Samsung and ask. My set is over five years old and I expected to be blown off by them.
Thanks for responding. I didn't think anyone would as this is an old thread.
The new firmware that bricked my 2653H is T-BP26AUS0-2024. I would be willing to try any version and see what happens.
So I will try checking the board for blown parts and if anyone has any firmware I can download, I will try that too.
