I have a Samsung 50" Class Smart LED TV - UN50J6200 TV and it was purchased in October 2015. The lower left hand corner melted and the TV is inoperative. I believe this happened last night with the TV turned OFF while the tV was fine in the morning hours of yesterday when last used.
This is a definite fire hazard and after researching this on line this morning, I can see it is a common problem and Samsung is aware of it. This TV and other models affected should be recalled. I want a refund or exchange (non-fire hazard model please) TV. That's only fair seeing you (Samsung) have known about this issue and failed to warn consumers or recalled your defective product.
I also have a series 6200 which has melted in the lower left hand corner. The TV was purchased in 2016 and melted in January 2019 after only an hour or so of use. In an email exchange with Samsung customer service, the representative said that the series 6200 does not have this issue. (Reference # 2205782440). I have photos proving otherwise.
Going to attempt to engage with the customer service indicating that others have issue with the 6200. Hopefully Samsung Representatives will answer this post like they have with the issues with the 6300 series.
I just posted this in the 6300 forum but just now found this post which is related to the model we have. The exact same thing just happened to our tv model UN50H6201. Very scary.
This issue just happened to our TV just last night. The lower left corner just melted and now the TV doesn't show any kind of picture anymore, just a bunch of random colored pixels. See attached pictures.
This is a serious concern as we had my youngest son home alone watching TV when this happened. Thankfully he called us and said the TV smelled funny and it felt hot when he touched the corner when saw the melted spot. Yes it was painful when he touched it, it was that hot. Who knows what would have happened if he hadn't unplugged the TV. It's frightening to think that the noxious fumes or even a major fire could have resulted.
Looking through this thread, its obviously a known issue. Please help us with this issue Samsung.
