Customer Question

I hnve a 40" samsung that "schreets" & showes a yellow & brown pattern when I first turn it on. I have to start and turn off at least two times before the normal screen comes on. I don't expertience any othwr problems. Is this a repairable problem or do I need to get a new TV?

I see you were chatting with the site assistant. I am Mike, the field technician assigned to help you. If you see a pop up for phone call service, it was not sent by me and I am not available by phone. To get started, I need to know you can see this message and are able to reply to me here.

-Can you get the actual model number from the back of the tv?

-Where is the "yellow and brown pattern"? on the screen?
