Samsung LN46C750, not even a day old and the backlight's already out

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So yesterday my Samsung LN46C750 w/ two 3D glasses bundle arrived yesterday from Tigerdirect. Sans the bundled 3D glasses (F***ing Tigerdirect). I spent the better part of yesterday calibrating, mounting, talking to Tigerdirect trying to get my damn glasses, re-routing wires, hooking up the sound system etc for this thing.

Fortunately my Shrek 3D starter kit from Amazon had arrived last week, so I did get to toy around with 3D a bit when I was done. The movement in 3D's a bit iffy, but whether my PS3, the glasses, or the TV was to blame for that I don't know. But still images in 3D were absolutely jaw dropping.

I wake up this morning and go to the living room to watch some golf I had on the DVR. 10 minutes later, darkness. The screen just goes black, but I still hear what's going on. I take a flashlight and desk lamp to the screen, and there's still a picture, but it's damn near impossible to see.

The f***ing backlight's already out. I haven't had the damn thing ONE DAY and it's already FUBAR. On Christmas Eve no less. Samsung isn't going to have anyone available to repair or replace this damn thing until at least Monday.

Moral of the story: f***ing Tigerdirect.

Thats a gutter mate, really feel for ya i do as teh tv is awsome, i have the 40" set and love it to bits.
Afew tips -
For some strange reason samsung decided to release the tv with dodgy 200hz motion plus, meaning - it just does'nt work lol, muppets, so you need to turn motion plus settings off in menu, no biggy for me as i think motion plus sucks, this will fix ur dodgey movement

Tridef 3d will play ya pc games in real 3d and for me the software works with about 90% of the games i throw at it.

Good luck on the replacement
