Strobelight Flickering on my Samsung LCD TV LN46C650

by sherrie2011 - 7/22/11 9:08 AM

A few months ago my almost year old Samsung LN46C650 started flickering like a strobe light. Sometimes it will stop when I turn the TV off and then back on. Last night the flickering started when I turned it on and then continued through out the night. It mostly flickers when it has been on for awhile. I started to research what the problem might be and found this forum. I tried to register my TV which is now over a year old, was bought from Amazon and delivered on 5/13/10, about 7 times and nothing happens. I used the online tech support last night and the rep said that I would need to call a service provider. I just talked to customer service and was told that it's too late to register my TV because it is over a year, even though it would be covered by the extended 3 months. Is there anything that I can do? She also said that this is not a known problem with this model of TV. My transaction # 2108167500. I always though that Samsung was a good brand...guess I was wrong sad...very disappointed.
