65 " Curved TV now switchin on. Status light blinking

I purchased a 65" Curved TV 11/26/2016 (UN65KS8500)  from bestbuy Frisco, Texas and it was working fine .  Black screen appeared suddenly while it was working.   I tried all trouble shooting steps suggested.


I have even contacted samsung repair center, they told me that i have to replace the panel and it will cost 1463+Tax, I purchased the TV by paying around 1600 . Paying 1550 (incl Tx)  is the repair cost suggested by the Samsung Repair support team !!!!.


I feel they are cheating the customers, A TV's life span is only 3.5 Years !!.   


I know it is electronic products and product may fail at times.  But being an established brand they should give fair cusotmer support.

Is there any solutions , 


Please advise

Dear @userJfNOQfLyIo 


I hope you are doing well.


I'm sorry to have to tell you this, but once a black screen appeared on the display, there won't be much troubleshooting we can solve the issue. Replacing the display would be the best option. I know the price of repairing the television is high, it is due to the fact the display is curved. It's a lot more material and labor to make the curve display rather than the regular. I provided you a link to schedule a service for your television set. The service team is an actual authorize Samsung team that will be attempting to repair the television.


I hope I was able to answer and provide some support for your concern about your television.
