64F8500AFXZA Won't Turn On
Add me to the list of people with the same problem. This started happening for me in September of last year. It got progressively worse until yesterday where I turned it off in the morning and it simply will not turn back on. (Feeling a sense of loss). I called Samsung CS and they weren't that helpful - basically saying they could send someone for $250 (could not tell me if I got that money back if they couldn't fix it), or refer me to a local Samung-certified repair provider (same). At this point, I'm trying to decide whether to try the local Samsung tech that the Samsung CS referred me to, or to just skip the bs and get a new TV. I have very little patience for things like this, and don't want to have to take money out of my pocket and time out of my job/life for someone to come out a bunch of times, and not fix it.
I'm in the SF Bay Area. Curious if anyone has had any experience with TV Unlimited in Sunnyvale.
Being that this is somewhat of a surprise expense, if I get a new set, I don't think I'm going to be able to swing OLED money. I'm currently leaning to the Vizio M70-C3. Any other suggestions for replacements in that $2,000 range? TIA, this thread has been very helpful (/consoling). I've pretty much only had Samsung TVs, and I think this is my last one.
