    Iv just taken delivery of my 2ND Sammy.
    The frame is lifting from the screen and there is glue along the edge.
    This one also has the judder my previous one had.
    Im now expecting my 3RD delivery on Wednesday.
    Oh happy days. :mad:

    Our local store is Silverlink North Shields and the ware house is in Doncaster. Hopefully yours isnt coming from there.

    Suprise Suprise. :mad:
    Iv just returned my 3RD SAMMY back to currys.
    Its the same problem again .....frame lifting from screen. Even the glue is still showing. Currys said they will contact Samsung to make them aware of this. I would be interested to know if anyone one else has had this problem. I have now been told that our local currys have no Sammys in stock. The said items are coming from a warehouse in Doncaster.

    Checked mine and it seems ok

    The display TV in currys doesn't have special leads and its running sky sports and doesn't get a judder with any banners . The salesman said its a fault as it should be picture perfect. Iv also been told if theres a judder it will only get worse in time.
    Id be interested to know that when you have turned the TV off do you also see what looks like a white cloud in the middle of your set ?

    Previous posting from billy the dad show he had screen judder on his screen way back in April. Its an obvious fault and one at which Samsung should have taken serisiouly .

    No white cloud at all

    I only get the judder when the xbox is in progressive scan mode.

    I spoke to Samsung and becasue I've bought it from dixons they won't repair it either, So I quess I'll have to get a different tv.

    I'm getting this on my set also which was delivered on Saturday. On the Sky banners, it moves horizontally but with the Xbox it moves vertically quite violently for the first 10-15 minutes then seems to stop. It's usually only when I've just turned the set on with Xbox, but all the time with Sky.

    I think I'll give them a call and see what they say!

    Guess What ??
    Yep thats right...My 4th Sammy has come and gone.
    Once again I have had to refuse delivery because the frame is lifting from the screen all the way across the top.
    The delivery guy said he wouldnt accept it either.
    Dont know what to do now
    Replacement or refund ....... :mad:

    Iv just refused delivery of my 5th Sammy. Same problem with the frame lifting from the screen. Someone else must have this problem with theirs. Its the silver strip across the top.

    It's a shame hearing this, as the TV does give a superb picture :(

    You guys could try the new Sagem HD-D45 G4 instead, or the 50" L6 Sammy, most likely a bad batch of TV's? Dodgy glue used on that batch perhaps?
