Can anyone help me please?
I have had the Samsung 50” Plasma Model: PS50B450B1D since March 2010. Over the past few days, Its starting to show a black line about 6" wide down the right hand side of the screen, in the black there are coloured lines running up and down it. I could have uploaded a photo here, but I dont know how.
I was wondering whether I would have much chance of getting it fixed under the "must be of merchantable quality" regulations, at Fair Trading. It was bought from The Good Guys.
I was wondering if anyone else has had the same problem, either on this Samsung 50" or a similar model. These things (Large TV's) shouldnt be throw away items after 4.5 years, should they? I am a pensioner, so every $ matters to me. If its fixable at a reasonable price, I'll get it repaired. I'm on the gold Coast in Australia.
Alternately, can you suggest a good reliable 50" Hi-Def Plasma TV, please. I DON'T want 3D or Smart TV, just a basically reliable 1920 x 1080 HD TV. I realise that every manufacturer has their share of troublesome models, so I am not so keep on getting another Samsung. But in the event that my problem, was a kind of one off and I was just unlucky, I would still consider buying another one. Screen size between 48-55" around the $1,000.00 mark, if possible please. I could squeeze a bit more, for something exceptional.
Thanks for any help or advice, especially if I can get someone to look at the photo I took. The fault is intermittent at the ment, but has happened for the last 2 days, so it isnt going to get any better.
