Re: Screen overheating and melting corner of TV - 6300 series LED

JUMP TO SOLUTION

My update: I called customer service last Friday and explained the situation. The CS rep sent me to the next 'level up'. They called me back on Monday. Made an appointment for them to come and take pics on Friday. They called me back and said I could just send them the pics myself if I preferred to expedite the process. The tech texted me the number to send the pics. He called me the next morning as I hadn't sent them yet. I did so right away and he called me back within the hour to let me know they were ordering the parts and it would take a couple of days for them to arrive. They called me yesterday and scheduled the repair for next Tuesday. So far so good!

The exact same thing happened to my Samsung 50" UN50EH5300 television. The unit was on for about two hours.  I left the television on while I went out for about 30 minutes. When I returned my apartment smelled like something was burning. Upon inspection I noted that the lower left corner of the television frame is melted, and there seems to be a coil of some sort showing through the screen when it is on. 

 

Not only do do I not have a functioning television at this point, but I am scared to death. My dog was at home when this occurred and I am horrified to think  what could have happened. Samsung televisions are all that I own. At this point I don't feel safe with the remaining sets in my home. I am shocked that this seems to be such a large problem and that Samsung has not addressed it publicly, or offered a recall or repair program. The potential for liability is huge! 

 

I'm not sure who to contact at this point. Could any of you that have obtained service offer a suggestion?

Same issue here. Last night after being on for 2 hrs our 50 inch j6200afxza started displaying horizontal lines across the screen with a black spot in the corner that became too hot to touch. I was worried it would melt the case.

Tv overheated after using for an hour and melted bottom left corner. Any help if I don't have a receipt? Got this on black Friday last year and will never be able to find it.
