    Hi, I bought my Samsung LE40R51B at Christmas and must say i'm very happy with it... however i came home tonight to an answer phone message from Dixons online, where i bought the LCD from, stating that Samsung have identified a problem with my model and need to carry out a specific modification. She said that it would be collected next week and it should not be used until it is returned.

    I've no idea what this is all about, so will ring them tomorrow.

    Any one else had this or have any idea what this is all about?

    Thanks

    Yes apparently it only affects the R51 models from Currys/Dixons/PC World. They have a potential fire risk on some of these models but to be safe Samsung asked them to issue a recall on them. The one from MartinDawes should be fine though (I say "should" cos you never know if anything happens you might blame me so best you confirm it with them yourself)

    Anyhow, read up on more here:

    Seen posts regarding a similar recall regarding the 26" R51 last year, again supplied by Dixon's/Comet type outlets. Bang ! and smoke, not funny.:eek:

    I have a sneaking suspicion that the 41s and 51s whilst the same spec but different facias are produced at different locations and have different sources of components.

    Chaps at the 51 factory cutting corners do you think.:rolleyes:

    Pure speculation mind.:cool:

    Any one already returned their TV? I was interested to know how long it took to return as Dixons online can't give any timescales.
