Had the comet engineer out thurs 23-10-08,even though trading standards stipulated i should get a independant engineers report, because comet was where i purchased my samsung tv and that his findings could be bias, well when he opened up the tv he showed me that the problem was the power pcb assembley board , so i asked him two questions, firstly in his opinion was the fault down too wear and tear, he replied NO secondly i ask him was the fault down to misuse by our household he replied NO, SO I ASK HIM WAS THIS A FAULT THAT HE HAD COME ACROSS BEFORE WITH THIS RANGE OF SAMSUNG TVS, he claimed he had repaired several with the same fault, so now i am waiting for comet to assess his findings, i will keep you all up dated on what comet offer me and whether trading standards office advise me too taken comet to court,as i have now a written report from thier engineer which clearly states a manufacturing fault in the power pcb board which is clearly not durable or fit for the means,

Further to my posting on August 18th:-
Visual FX returned the TV unrepaired. Still disgusted we stored the TV away out of sight! I was sick of looking at it - "the most expensive ornament that I'd ever purchased!"
We took the advice of the Office of Fair Trading and Trading Standards (now known as Consumer Direct) and wrote to Comet, we included a print out of this forum with our letter...
Last weekend Comet sent an engineer - FREE OF CHARGE to assess the problem...I was ready to go into battle and demand a new TV or a refund...
The engineer plugged in and switched on the TV...
...and it worked straight away! Ooops!
The Comet engineer unable to explain why this happened! HOWEVER he thought that Visual FX may have left in a brand new "Main PCB" board in error? OR there was simply a loose connection which Visaul FX inadvertantly "fixed" when they opened up the back??
Comet engineer was very understanding and called me on Monday to check that the TV was still working...and another week later it still is!
Comet engineer has submitted a report to his managers and has asked me to get in touch should the same fault re-occur. You can't ask for fairer treatment then that!
BBC Watch Dog also written to - I referred them to this forum - but they haven't been in touch!
Sooo it may be as simple as a loose connection in the back of the TV? OR it may well be a faulty "main PCB"?

Your power board is bad or the main board.

Repair guy came. Change a board. It works now. (so far). Not sure if problem can be resolved on own unless you have spare boards around.
