Do New Tvs Break Quicker Than Old One
 
# 1 : Saturday 28-12-2013 @ 17:08
 
 
My bedroom TV broke last night
Just went blank no sound no picture not even the red standby light
I bought it just over a year ago and therefore its only a month out of warranty
It is a samsung that I bought at D.I.D

My parents TV that they had for about 2 years broke last June
They also got in D.I.D but it was some French brand

On the other hand my parents old TV (that the new one replaced) that they bought in 1992 or so still works
As does my bedroom TV that I bought in 2002

So what is it are the newer tvs designed to break or what is happening

Take them to Court, they don't want bad publicity and will settle. All of you, take it to the small claims court and get a reporter involved!

No, old televisions broke as much. You were just lucky with the old ones and unlucky with the new.

@kiss, who would you suggest he bring to court? Samsung?

D.I.D, is who I suggest he brings to court. They are selling the product, also you still have a case even after the warranty expires! Once it is within a six month period, after it expires and he should at least try!

Interesting you should mention that. Yesterday I opened the front door and a draft came in and my 1990's portable TV fell off its shelf onto the floor and cracked and now when I try turning it on I either here nothing or - if I press the cracks together - I hear a hissing sound. I've decided it's best to steer clear in case it blows up on me.

Even if it's just out of warranty, I would still bring it back and see what they will do for you.

I'm surprised. Samsung have a solid reputation for producing high quality flat screen televisions which consistently get high marks from reviewers.

I'd contact Samsung as well as the retailer.

Your warranty is with Samsung, not DID. Bringing the shop to court is ridiculous. Contact Samsung. If you don't get any joy from them you could consider bringing Samsung to court.

My friend had something of the same happen his tv, think it was a phillips, he contacted the shop and they wanted to repair it and charge him for it. He rang phillips in england and told them that he had always bought there brand for years and felt,really let down by them over this. They sent out there guy and he replaced the tv for an upgraded model free.
