Update: After posting on this forum, @SamsungGill reached out to me directly within 15 minutes. Thank you very much! After some short correspondance, he set me up with covered parts and labor with a local Samsung service company. The service company contacted me within a couple days and scheduled a repair date the following week. On the repair day, the service rep contacted me to let me know the part (front panel) was actually out of stock and they placed a new order for it. Later that week, the service rep called again to reschedule the repair for today. The technician came out this morning, swapped out the panel and was finished in 20 minutes!
Overall, this was a very smooth and painless process. While interacting with people from Samsung and their contracted repair company, I was very friendly and provided as much detail about the problem as I could. All who helped were very professional and courteous, and I am very happy with the outcome.
Thank you to Samsung for standing by their product, even after warranty!
Thanks. Based on previous replies to this thread, is the solution you're offering for me to schedule the repair, and ultimately have the panel replaced out of pocket? My purchase timeline and recent problem lines up with all the other posts on this (and many other) thread. Is there no other recourse than paying for a new panel?
Have you had this resolved? What did Samsung do to fix this? I was turned away by customer service after a week of phone calls. They lead u to think there is a possibility of repair or exchange but it is all a sham.
Has anyone heard of the class action suit for this model?
