Question about Samsung LN-T4661F 46 in. LCD HDTV
This is a common problem with Samsung and Hitachi HDTV LCD. The events you mentioned are highly suggestive of ' Bad light engine '. You should have contacted the Samsung while you had red pixels. The cost of light engine is really high as compared to cost of the product. There are brands like Sony and Phillips who are offering free replacements for few models. In this situation, you are left with 3 options :-
1. If it is under warranty, get it replaced. Unless, call them and express your concern and see, if Samsung could replace it cheaply or offer you some discount or offer extended warranty.
2. You could see for independent shops who have links with companies who could refurnish the light engine. The cost in this case for the part would be around $350 + Labor + trip charges ( if any ).Other than this, you could look on craiglist, if someone is dumping the TV for around $100 - $200 with correct light engine. You could buy and swap the light engine. You could also look for salvage yards to find a broken TV ( Obviously same model ) and then swap the parts.
3. You could invest in new TV.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
