LED LCD HDTV?

LED LCD HDTV? I'm looking to finally replace my 1998-vintage CRT with a Samsung 40" LED LCD @120 Hz (model #UN40C6300SF). It's on sale at Best Buy and the reviews have been very positive with a few complaints of bad panels and visible corner "flashlighting" in a dark room. Anyone have experience with LED TVs? I like their sexy slimness, but are they built to last? Should I wait another year for a comparably-priced 3D version?

My printer will only print infinite blank pages

I have a 4 year old Samsung ML-2510 printer that will no longer print. It takes in a sheet of paper about halfway, then stops for ~20 seconds then spits the page out a blank page. It will keep doing this until it runs out of paper. The red error light is slowly flashing. The problem appeared a couple of years ago, but I've always been able to get it to go away before. It worked fine the first time I used it this semester but stopped working the second time I used it. Since then I've only been able to get it to spit out one non-blank page, and that was involved in a paperjam. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can get it working? I've tried Google and the Samsung site, but I get the same 4 questions answered over and over again. [more inside]

HDMI CEC in the real world

HDMI CEC in the real world: I've got a new Samsung LED TV, which has got a number of DVD-like control buttons on the remote (play, pause, rewind etc). I'd like to use these to control a Blu-ray player when I buy one, but can I buy any (recent) player and be confident that the TV and player will work together (via HDMI Consumer Electronics Control) as advertised? Do they all play nice together in practice?

Should I get a broken Samsung 46" HDTV fixed?

Has anyone repaired a Samsung 46 inch flatscreen successfully? Mine is only 2 years old and has 3 thin white lines going through it creating 4 horizontal sections in the screen. In addition the right half of the screen is blurry. That blurriness is a problem that we've had for a while but after the tv was on for about 15 minutes it would go away. Now within the past week the white lines have appeared and the blurriness doesn't go away. [more inside]

How can I get my hard drive to work with my TV and computer at the same time?

My new Samsung HDTV plays lots of content off a USB Hard Drive. Works great. What's the best way for me to setup a hard drive that stays connected to the TV but allows my computer to write files to it? Seems like all the drives I have or look up only allow 1 device to connect to it at a time.

Can't Check Text Messages on Samsung SCH-U340

I just got a Samsung SCH-U340 (catchy, eh?) and I seem to have two text messages in the inbox. When I try to check them, the phone instantly shuts down and restarts (with the Verizon Logo sequence). I have tried deleting all the messages, which effects everything but the inbox (those messages remain) and doing an all settings reset (which is under the security menu), also to no avail. How do I fix this?
