by Categorized: Consumer Electronics (TV Date:

Samsung's HPT5054X/XAA plasma HDTV is one of the televisions affected by a faulty capacitor.

Samsung has pledged to pay for repairs of as many as 7 million faulty televisions caused by failed capacitors, settling a class action suit by consumers.
Samsung says it will reimburse owners who have already paid for repairs of their LCD, plasma and DLP televisions and up to $300 for owners whose TVs have not been fixed.

Here are the affected models:

Model Number Serial Numbers
Plasma TV HPT5034X/XAA; HPT5044X/XAA; HPT5054X/XAA; HPT5064X/XAA; PN42A410C1DXZA; PN42A450P1DXZA; PN50A410C1DXZA; PN50A450P1DXZA; PN50A460S4DXZA

If you own one of these TVs, you can get a claim form here.

    What if we have one of the TV’s that are listed and have been having problems with it not coming on but have not repaired because eventually we were able to get it back on – and just 2 days ago we have not been able to get it back on. What is our course of action – can we call some repair person to come out and if it the problem in the suit – get our money back for the repair? We purchased in 2007.

      Hi Sandra:

      Eventually, it might fail altogether. I would check to see if you’re covered on this, then have the TV repaired.

    Hi Kevin: Just this morning I had this very issue. I just now googled the model number and this form and your article popped-up. I want to get it fixed. Am I eligible for reimbursement even though my claim is beyond the deadline for filing? Thanks

    I own a 50″ Samsung LED DLP and the model number that is listed i am having problems with. First the pixels start to go, then the fan, then the TV shuts off by itself! I Paid $1500 for this TV. It should last at least 10 yrs.
    The old tv sets lasted even longer ! State of the Art ? Bah.
