Hi, thanks for your quick reply.
No nothing happens. Screen simply gets blue... out of nowhere!
I can still hear the sound and only way to fix this is to turn off the TV and then tunr on back again. And it started again like in the very beginning when sometimes I have to do this process for two or three times during a movie.
This only happens when using the HDMI out put which is connected to my receiver and then to my blu-ray player (Samsung BD-UP500) and my PS3.
I bought the TV May/07 and then in Jul/07 I got a Toshiba's HD-DVD player and it was when this problem started. After a while trying to figure out what was going, I isolate the issue in the TV so I contact Samsung. It was when they sent me a pen drive with a firmware update (1032). It was OK until Mar/08 when I got the blu-ray player and this blue screen started once again. Not frequent as before but happening.
Now this issue came back and happening more often when I am playing my PS3 or watching a movie (it's a fact such blue screen only happens when playing HD disks. Never had this issue when watching DVDs through same output).
About the eventual replacement of internal parts, I don't know if that's the case or not. I only read on other forums some people telling this is what happened to them.
If you need further info, please let me know.
I really like this TV so I am just would like to have it 100% OK.
