I have a 50" Samsung DLP that was given to me by a friend. There is no picture on the screen, I wonder if this falls in the same category. He has tried replacing the bulb in it already and it didn't fix the issue. I haven't had a chance to check it out to see what the problem is yet.
Guys to think that you'll get away from faulty electronics by just switching away from samsung to toshiba, or panasonic will get you away from the ever problematic capacitor problem is, at least in my opinion, somewhat ignorant.
All producers are trying to pickup their materials at the lowest costs, these things are bound to happen. Furthermore design flaws with the electronics and physical structure can trap heat and shorten the life of components such as capacitors. I'm by no means saying this is acceptable, when you pay good money you expect a quality product. My point is, this time it was Samsung, next time it could be Sony, or Panasonic. I'm not playing Samsung fanboy either, just trying to shed some light and say, it can happen to ANY product line from any producer. Just like any given car can have a major recall at any given point in time.
You could say the same thing about computers but Dell had a capacitor issue in certain models\mb versions that they had to swap out. Don't remember hearing any other computer company having the issue.
This may have been an issue with 1 type\model of capacitor and I am pretty sure not all TV manufacturers use the same brand\model number capacitor in their TV's.
I'd the similar issue with my model: LNT4061F. I called samsung and technician replaced capacitors free of cost. He said SamSung is aware of this issue and they are fixing the issue free of cost on Request. I don't see my model mentioned in the Lawsuit.
All LNT-models are included....hence the ****** listed for model numbers
