I have the exact same issue. I purchased a Samsung UN55KS8000F in January of 2017 and here I am 2 and a half years later with a useless TV. The repair cost is equal to more than the original purchase price. I have a LG and a Sony flatscreen that are both over 10 years old with no issues. This was my first Samsung and is my last. It’s clear that based on the 22 pages of posts this is a manufacturing defect that Samsung takes zero responsibility for. It’s obsurd that there is this clear trend and they won’t help anyone out who is outside of warranty. At the very least you could offer a replacement at a significant discount. You are setting your brand and reputation on fire. Going forward I will recommend all family and friends to steer clear of your brand. Heading back to Best Buy this week to buy something other than a Samsung.
