Samsung produces a wide variety of consumer electronic lines under a number of affiliated brands and is the largest business conglomerate in Korea. The company has recently been reported as the leading cell phone company in the world by market share. Samsung faced a multi-billion dollar lawsuit from Apple, its largest cell phone parts client. Lawsuits such as this one have allegedly caused the company heavy money troubles. In the legal battle with Apple, it was reported that Samsung suffered a judgment forcing it to pay billions of dollars in restitution and fines.
The HD TV Hardware Flaw
Many people have reported having power and picture problems with several models of high definition televisions made by Samsung. Faulty capacitors have been named as one of the main culprits of the problems that people are experiencing. Some people have complained of dark or black bands that show up across the entire screen of their televisions, while others have reported that when they try to turn the units on the power will fail. Still others have reported that their televisions will turn on and off randomly. The power capacitor problem has reportedly plagued Samsung’s television products for many years and has been the source of class action lawsuits in the past.
Some people have claimed that when Samsung was contacted about the problem, the company refused to provide repairs or replacements due to the warranties being expired. Many people have also asked Samsung to fix the problems outside of their recently expired warranties but the company has refused.
