As per my prior posts have my c7000 fixed un jbhifi extended warranty.
Watching the other night and a white image came up on foxtel and lo and behold there's a flash of pink just like before they fixed.
Since then I've tried a heap of different tests and haven't been able to replicate problem.

Thanks aussiebalboa and I know you're right.
When it happened the first time I was easily able to replicate the problem using the guide and menus in foxtel as well as a couple of the tests on the Spears and Munsil calibration disc. Tried all that and can't get it to do it again.
Will watch it like a hawk and keep on testing regularly too. As you say it's only going to get worse.

I don't think the glasses will work, Samsung switched to universal glasses for the E series I think. Not a big fan of 3D, so can't really offer much of a comparison, but by all reports, the E8000's 3D capabilities are pretty solid. The included pair of glasses (the new SSG-4100GB) though, are pretty average/flimsy, but then you'd expect them to be considering they only retail for about $30 each.

This is one reason why I hope nothing happens to our 2010 63C7000 even though I paid for an extra 4 yr warranty. I've been very happy with it so far. It's as quiet as a mouse, I can't see any fault with the 3D picture and all up we have eight sets of 3D glasses thanks to Myer and Samsung give-aways. In one sitting we have used six sets of 3D glasses to watch a movie.
I have even bought a pair of spare remote controls after our original one was too close to a heater. This guy here sells original "Made in Korea" C7000 remotes for $13 each incl delivery.
I don't want to go through the hassle of the TV warranty repair/replacement pain so I'm hoping for another few years of trouble free television before upgrading.

I bought this Samsung WIS12abgnx wireless adapter for our plasma and am very happy with the performance.
TinTin (2012) 1080P stream -no problems
Avengers (2012) 1080P stream -no problems
Prometheus (2012) 1080P stream -no problems
No more getting nagged about the hdmi cable and ethernet cable running across the lounge floor from the computer to the TV.
Wireless streaming 1080P video and wireless Internet works great.
I think the new Samsung Smart TVs have wifi built in, not sure though.
Btw, My Billion 7800N modem/router is using Wireless-N protocol on the 2.4ghz channel. I thought I was going to need a 5ghz router to stream 1080P but I was wrong.

I just checked our home/contents insurance policy and it doesn't cover accidental damage.
The TV's power light works and the start up and power down chimes both sound but no picture of course.
Got a price over the phone. Approx total is $2500, which is for screen, shipping, labour. A lot more than I expected.

Extended warranty people wanted to replace TV (PS58C7000) with low end LG Plasma, I pushed back and tried to get then to replace with Samsung E8000, but they wouldn't. In the end they said they would repair or cash settle - I took the cash as I have no confidence issue will be repaired in the long term.
Thanks to Matt at The Cable Connection I got a very good price on the new PS60E8000 so am only about $350 out of pocket. Purchased on credit card that doubles warranty, and with new consumer warranty laws I didn't bother with extended warranty - absolute PITA dealing with them anyway.
