TV finally arrived. Screen filled with broken lines. Way worse than the picture that another had posted. Dell tried to offer me the 450 model. So shady of a company to offer lower quality replacement. So my options are now to wait 2 days to see if their "stock" comes in or probably return/refund. I don't even know what to do anymore it's all so ridiculous (from the beginning I guess). I've PM some SDers for their order/case number to use it hopefully they don't mind sharing...

Any advice on what to do ?

My TV has one dead pixel. It is actually one dead sub-pixel (just the green one is dead, the red and blue sub pixels are fine). Just like you, I see a black spot only when there is a stationary white or some (but not all) other color on the screen. It is not visible from my normal viewing distance of about 9 feet even with a blank white image on the screen. I am not sure if I should follow up with Samsung. I don't think anythiing can be done about this and a single dead pixel is not covered under warranty either.

EDIT: So exactly how many dead pixels and how many stuck pixels does your TV have? Stuck pixels MIGHT be repaired but dead pixels definitely cannot be resurrected. :-)

Dead = always off (dark pixel). Stuck = always on (bright pixel)
I believe they are dead, I do not see any color in them at all. Seems to be about 2-5. I am going to contact Samsung just to see if anything can be done.

a sub of pilot just delivered my TV...said to give it 4-6 hours to warm up from being outside over night.
popped the top and the foam on the corners and across the top was busted up some.
i'll have help in several hours to un-box/inspect/set-up.
i'll post back.
seems like Dell let these orders get out of control for a few weeks but in the end they came through..for that i would like to thank Dell for stepping up to the plate and handling this matter like a respectable company should.
In my opinion Dell was far from handeling this in any respectable manner, but I'm thankful I got my TV. No clue where the surround is, but TV is up and on the wall.

Do you hang the TV on the wall? How do you hide all the wires?

I'm wondering the same thing myself. I have a mount on order that should get here tomorrow, but I'm not sure how best to hide the wires.

Well the best way is to cut a small hole in the wall and run them through there...but most of the time that's not possible/practical...

Connect the HDMI cables through a hole in the dry wall and out again at the receiver. This way the wires are hidden. If you don't have a good receiver, don't mount this TV on the wall. It's not worth the hassle of trying to connect / disconnect various devices becasue the 530 does not have multiple side panel inputs.

See this for more info [ehow.com].

Keep me updated. One dead pixel out of 2 million is not too obvious, but it would be nice to have zero dead pixels.

If Samsung offers in-home repair for this, I'll try it too. I don't want a replacement because the new TV could be worse than the current one.

I haven't had time to hide the wires as of yet, but I will be cutting a small hole behind the tv and run the wires down to the ground out another small hole that will be hidden behind a piece of furniture that holds my cable box, dvd, and all other components.

Samsungs dead pixel policy:

One or two dead pixels out of approximately 2 million pixels on this PDP (plasma display panel) is acceptable. Generally, then, if you have only a few dead pixels, service is not an option.

With that said Samsung does have a dead pixel policy. Receiving warranty service depends on :
  • The number of dead pixels.
  • The location of dead pixels.
  • The color of the dead pixels.
  • The size of the screen.

Please gather the above information and follow the instructions below to contact us.


Link to provide them with info: http://www.samsung.com/us/support...Request.do

I'm going to try this out see where it takes me. I'll keep you updated.

Hopefully 3-5 dead pixels all in one spot warrants service, I believe it should, but we'll see.

I'm at work now so I can't fully finish the service request form, need serial number on tv.

Just hooked up the surround system in my bedroom. Quantum of Solace looks great and sounds MUCH better than I expected.

Box was smaller and lighter than expected and so far she seems to be intact! After all the whining this morning the guy who delivered seemed very nice and I helped him bring up 3 flights of stairs to my apartment.

Now to go pickup the HTiB which UPS screwed up the delivery on.....
