Should I repair or run away....
I have a 5.5 year old Samsung, 65" LCD - UN65H6350 series.
The LCD strips have started acting up, first, one of the plastic discs fell out. That was repaired for $300, which seemed high considering there were no parts ordered.
Now, six weeks later, a second one is acting up. The repair shop had me come in and take a look at ALL the led's while it was apart. About eight of them in various strips had started to emit different colors and intensities, in so much that when the plastic film was laid back down, you could see the effect it caused across the sheet, with regards to hot-spots, color, etc.
So, now the question - do I spend another $200 to replace ALL the LCD strips, as the repair place is suggesting? Will I have another 5 years of trouble free results, or do replacement LCD strips have a higher failure rate than do factory installed ones.
The reason for keeping and repairing this model is that it has PIP, which I use several times a year. I can't find any new TV's that include PIP as a feature anymore.
Thanks for any and all input....
