    i bought the flm0323b a year and ahalf ago and my picture has went out and polariod says they can send me the control box for an extra $250.00 like im a repairman. i feel they owe us all.

    they let us down.

    Well I guess I was one of those suckers as well. 13 months after using the TV it just stopped turning off then when I called tech support they had me unplug it for 30 minutes then plug it back in and it worked.....for one day then it would never power on.
    After several attempts to call the support number and after calling several times to the number of a certified repair person (who is no longer working on these items) i was told there was a 6 month backorder for the parts and it would cost $250.00. They did offer to replace or swap for $350.00 but I would need to pay shipping.
    It has now been 8 months and the company that said the parts would be 6 months is also now no longer doing business. No part and no TV repair....

    THIS ITEMS SUCKS and should have never been sold.... EVER!!!!

    I am looking for ways to get my money back and will sign any lawsuit that is coming.

    I will sign any lawsuit. I have the same issue. I turn the tv on, the blue light appears, but no picture. The only way to turn the tv off is to unplug it. I have had it almost exactly two years to the day it stopped working.

Just wondering if anything has been done about this class-action lawsuit. It shows this post as being 2 years old but if it is in process I would definitely consider joining it. My set lasted just over a year and I have had nothing but trouble ever since. Most of the same problems listed here. Blown capacitors, not able to get power, can't hook into home theater system, etc. Please let me know if there is a way to do something. This TV is a piece of s___t and should have been recalled a long time ago.

Samsung 46 inch tv comes on bad picture then shuts off and comes on again with picture?

Problem lies with bad capacitors or the power supply. Samsung had a program brought about by a class action lawsuit to make repairs free of charge. Unfortunately the program has expired. The issue is well documented,I would advise you to find a local repair service if you are interested in saving the set.

Good luck

$4000 dollar TV, bought in May 2004 and picture sucks and is yellow. Needs a lamp replacemant only? Color wheel as well?

Ok, if it is 50v500 I suggest you do something.

Google the model number with the word troubles after it.
Google the model number with "class action lawsuit" after it.

This set is well known (also the 60V500 which is the same set but larger).

Optical light engine gets burnt from heat from the lamp used--Hitachi will tell you they "know nothing about this" but the lawsuits are moving forward.

At one point they were selling the engines for 1100 exchange, then started rebuilding them and when so many were failing dropped the price to about 225 exchange----last I heard the engine is over 600 not counting major labor to replace--the new engines are not supposed "to have this problem" and I have over the last few years replaced about 20 of them---most under extended warranty from people who were sharp enough to get a extended warranty.

I am sorry to give you bad news but it can be nothing other than the engine.

If this information told you something you did not know, rate this solution as I do this here for free.

Join the class action lawsuits!

Class action lawsuit Philips Defective tvs

Philips TVs **** - whoever said "Just buy a new power board fix ur tv" obviously works for Philips - again, Philips has horrible products that break and no customer service. Everyone that has ever purchased a Philips TV complained about it online. I wish I knew before I bought the piece of broken **** sitting in my living room.
