OK I believe this to be the back-lights arcing then settling down (screeching) however as always with samsung we have a visual inspection of the power-board so that will be the first check,if that checks out OK then I am afraid its not an option to replace back-lights in this set because of cost and even availability of the lights which I think will now not be available anyhow, let me know if you want to have a look at the power-board

I just checked my credit card and I have two charges $5.00 and $20.00. do you know what this is Anthony?
Customer reply replied 8 days ago
Is that the free 7 day trial charge for 1 week?
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 8 days ago

I am not privvy to billing I am a technician that uses the site like you do but the way I see it there is a $5 charge to ask the question when I respond the rest of the deposit is taken, I know nothing about free trials etc

I guess I will just buy a new TV then Anthony. I hope you get paid for answering my question. I thought it was only $5 refundable. I am going to complain about the $20.00 charge that I did not authorize.
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 8 days ago

OK its very likely the back-lights have gone bad on the set sorry for bad news....everything about payment would have been explained sorry for confusion

A positive rating is appreciated thank you (rating bar of stars top of the page thank you) 3 to 5 stars and the site will release a payment to me thank you.
Regards
Anthony
