We just bought a Samsung QT80 TV a couple of months ago. It was replacing an older Samsung TV and we also have another Samsung TV, have been happy with their reliability & picture quality.
But we have noticed two very irritating things:
1. Sometimes for no apparent reason, the screen will go dark with no sound for 10-15 seconds, then just resume as if nothing had happened. Its *NOT* the cable company since we have verified that another (Samsung) TV in another room on the same channel did NOT do the same thing at the time it happened on the new QT80.
2. Even more irritating is that about 1 time out of 3 (ie far too frequently) when the QT80 gets turned on in the morning, it will display a screen saying it cannot find the HDMI input? The only way we have found to resolve this is to unplug the TV from electrical power, wait some seconds, and turn it back on, at which point 100% of the time it miraculously finds the HDMI input and works correctly.
I have some friends who bought this same TV and RETURNED it for exactly these unresolved issues.
What is Samsung going to resolve these issues or should I also look into a RETURN?
