I am considering buying a Samsung 52" LCD HDTV from Best Buy, but I am concerned about the service availability under warranty. I live in Morganton, North Carolina, 15 miles from the Best Buy in Hickory, so pickup and delivery could be a problem. What is Best Buy's policy on servicing TV's you sell?

Re: Service under warranty
Whenever you purchase a product such as a large-screen TV or major appliance from your local Best Buy™ store, you may always contact us directly at 888-BEST-BUY (888-237-8289) for service and repairs. In the event that we do not have a repair technician in your area, we'd be glad to locate a factory-authorized facility on your behalf that is able to assist you.
Best Buy™ technicians are able to provide support for most of the products we sell under their original manufacturer's warranty, in addition to products no longer covered by a warranty for a fee. Remember that while your factory warranty is still in effect, you may always contact the manufacturer directly for service and support as well.
In some cases, products may need to be shipped to a service center in order to complete repairs, especially if they cannot be completed within your home. Please keep in mind however, that this is largely dependent on the type of item being repaired and does not apply to every product or all areas of the country.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

As a repair person of over 30 years experience I agree with you.
Sets are not being made to either be repaired or service info available as only boards are sold---in some cases NO PARTS were ever available/sold.
Smart people who with service info etc could fix the unit are shut out--once the set is past the original warranty they are not interested in helping you or me.
Several companies recently produced a run of over 50 thousand identical sets---they made no additional parts, no service literature is available,---idea was quite simple---sell all except for a small percentage---any that fail in first year----just exchange--after that the poorly made sets can fail and unless someone had a extended warranty they are out of luck---PS: what happens here is the company "goes out of business" and is off the hook---only to appear again somewhere else under a new name.
Best defense is the Extended warranty---over 80 percent of the sets in our shop are under 3 years of age=====either do that or be prepared to buy a new set every three years=my personal experience is average life span on these sets is 3-5 years and dropping every day.

Best thing you can do is call 888-Best-Buy and schedule a service call. I wish i could tell you if it would be a repair or replace situation, but that will greatly depend on the part availability for your TV.
Insignia parts are often very hard to find (only 2 or 3 parts vendors in the US) so the sooner you call the better your chances of a quick repair.
