    I had a similar experience although my lines were vertical, the Samsung guys took it away to repair but alas they informed me the screen had gone :thumbsdow

    Upshot was to replace the screen just isnt cost effective as its cheaper to buy a new Plasma, so you could call the Samsung enginner out to confirm its gone or repairable.

    If you search the forums theres a thread here about your rights etc etc and these things should last longer etc etc and you may well have recourse through your supplier. Its gotta be worth a shot , let us know how you get on i know of at least 2 people who have got new TV's after they broke down after a similar period to yours.:smashin:

    Quote the sale of goods act to your retailer. You've got the right.
