Was rated as the best HDTV by cnet 2 years ago and the picture is incredible. Unfortunately, I had to replace the panel after 3 weeks of owning it (covered under warranty) and now have to replace the motherboard because it is turning off by itself (not covered under warranty). .
My samsung did the same thing , I didnt use it for a whole year before I googled the problem and found the easy solution.
If I can do it, I guarantee anybody can .
Unfortuantely, the TV is not just turning off by itself. It is losing signal while still on, and flashing menus when none of the buttons on the remote are pushed. It is like a ghost is controlling it.
