Well, I had my Samsung only a short while before it started the lamp won't come on problem, that I read several other people had with the lights flashing on the front. It's not burned out, just sometimes takes a minute to 10 minutes to come on.
I had gotten it from Sears as BB and CC wouldn't deal with prices and Sears did. I called for repair, and after three changed appointments they finally got a guy out. He'd never even heard of DLP, and thought it had to be a plasma or LCD! He suggested since it was within 45 days, to get it replaced. I called today so they could order a new one, as Sears doesn't keep these in stock (it took a week to get the first one). They refused to order a new one without either having a $50 delivery fee, or charging my card another $3000 until I returned the broken one.
Well, it works partially, and I'm not going to return it and wait for a week or more with no TV. I told them I just wanted them to order it, and when they got the new one in, I'd bring this one back, and they could give me the new one, that there was no risk on their part. She refused!
I'm bringing it back to get my money back tomorrow. Their service is disgusting!
