Samsung LCD 40 / never buy a sumsung tv

1 Brisbane Metro Area, Queensland, Australia

Me and my partner bought a Sumsung LCD 3 months ago. When we first brought it home and unpacked it the plastic around the tv was distorted and melted looking, we returned it and got another. On the 2nd Jan 2009 our Tv said check fan 2 on the screen and then over heats and turns itself off after 10 minutes. It is useless. We have a 5yr warranty and called samsung and they said it is such a common problem so they didnt need to come to our house because they knew what to do. They told us we would need to wait 2 weeks for the parts to arrive from Japan to fix the has now been 5 weeks...still no tv. I have called Samsung numerous times and the good guys where we bought it from and both partys have promised calls back that we have never recieved. You would think if it was a common problem that they would have the parts in australia ready on hand for when everyones samsungs overheat after they spend $2500, this is a far stretch for a student like myself to pay. My partners parents bought an LG LCD that broke, LG came and fixed it the next day...I know what brand i should buy next time...
