Samsung may cough up millions over kaput TVs
A class action lawsuit filed by owners of faulty Sammy TVs has finally reached a settlement. The manufacturer has promised to foot the bill for new repairs, reimburse for previous repairs and hand out up to $300 to customers who no longer possess their broken TVs but can prove they once did. The fault can affects any of the models listed above — possibly up to seven million sets in total — and centers on an errant capacitor in the power circuit that stops the TV turning on, makes it slow to turn on, produces a “clicking sound” or makes it cycle on and off. If you think you’re affected then check the source link for details on what to do next. Curious to know how much the lawyers got? A cool half-million for their troubles, which means they’ll be upgrading to OLED.
