So i bought this LCD TV of Samsung brand and all was fine and dandy - until the panel self-cracked!?
I'm a bit frustrated at the moment as one day when i came home from work i noticed a big crack in the upper left corner of my few-months-old LCD TV from Samsung (LE40A676). Although the crack isn't HUGE (3-4 cm perhaps) it kind of sucks to have bought a TV for $1200 just to have it self-broken within a few months.
At first i thought it was me who had been uncautious, but then i couldn't recall when i even cleaned the TV the last time. This made me google for the phenomenon and i noticed a few people having problems
with Samsung panels.
Anyway, i bought it from Media Markt and even paid for their (in)famous "plus guarantee", which makes you privileged enough to being able to call their 24/7 hotline or something. I called them and told my story, and that i had googled it, but it was a straight no-no and they claimed I had cracked it myself while cleaning it. I guess they have too many white trash drunkies and junkies calling in telling stories after having trashed the TV.
After this i e-mail Samsung sweden asking them if it's a recognised problem while appending links to the forum threads linked above.
The next step will be to go to the local Media Markt store where i bought the LCD, but i guess I'm not too hopeful about that.
The solution will be the home insurance i guess, but it's a pity today's products aren't of very good quality.
Have you had any similar problems?
