Samsung Complaints Continued... (Page 5)370+ reviews added so far. Upset? Call Samsung corporate: 973-601-6000
The TV has vertical lines thru it. Had service come out (at my own expense) and they said it would be too costly to fix, as it's the Front Panel that is defective. I called Samsung and got absolutely no where. Tried their "online" chat - not available. Email complaint would not allow me to continue as it did not show my model number and would not allow me to type in the model number. I see someone else is having or had the same problem as me. Very frusterating.
I bought Samsung product believing that it is worth the money invested.
Shortly thereafter, I was unpleasantly surprised with what followed:
I bought a mobile phone (Samsung Galaxy W, GT-I8150) in Cairo, Egypt, on 25th October 2012, from the local vendor (Mobile Shop). Soon after that, I faced the following problem: during a phone call, the sensor that turns off the screen was blocking the device; the screen remained off even though the call was completed. I tried several things (including factory settings) but without any result.
I brought the device to an authorized service center (Union Group, Cairo, Egypt). First they told me it would be fixed in 72 hours. After several calls they told me to come for a week, and when I went there they told me that they are waiting for a spare part from Korea and they needed another week.
Their attitude when I call them by phone: firstly I had to listen to the recorded message about 3 minutes, and then operator kept me another 3 minutes to listen to music, and finally the line was disconnected.
I want to emphasize that the Samsung -Union Group representatives exclude the possibility to replace the device with the new ones, if it is not repaired within the reasonable time.
Finally I would like to express my great disappointment with the above mentioned situation. I am thinking about possibility to claim for a compensation to cover the time and effort wasted.
bought a 52" lcd flat panel U750 two years ago. control board went out, had an estimate today for $674.21 to fix. are you kidding me? can't get a response from anybody with sears or samsung. will never buy another samsung product, and we are remodeling a sports bar and need 8 new tv's. will never see a samsung tv hanging in there
Purchased a galaxy note 2 in favor of a galaxy s3 and an iphone5. My mistake was even thinking that Samsung was capable of making quality products. Word of warning, Samsung consumer electronics, or anything with a one year manufacturers warranty might look nice but in terms of quality, Samsung doesn't care about the consumer. As for phone and customer support, they transferred me three times in one phone call and then finally hung up on me. I understand if technical jargon is not a universal language, so hire people that can understand it. Samsung has been around for a while, but they operate like a new business getting it's legs, products and support. I hope apple tears a new one in you, at least the money I spend with Apple is well spent.
I have bought a samsung mobile model no. Star 2 (GT-S5263). i'm getting a problem of this phone whenever i open internet sites like song.pk, you tube, gmail etc. So i went to samsung center (Technocare, noida sec-27, near noida sec.18 metro station) they had checked two time hand to hand and 3 times i had submitted on service centre approximate 20 days. but they could'nt solve this problem and branch manager has told me we are not getting what is the problem of this phone.
That's why i told to them if there is not solution this phone so please replace this phone but branch manager told me i will talk to my senior noida samsung branch manager mr. sandeep then i will reply u, alos i have talked to mr.sandeep he has told me you will get proper solution withing two-three days but i didnt get any solution of this phone. they are alwasy delaying this problem.
I complain morethan 20 times on samsung centre but they didn't given me any solution to my complain. So please solve my complain as soon as possible.
Unsatisfied service provided by Samsung company. I have purchase Samsung LED TV 40 on 20/10/2011 from pantaloon retail (India) Ltd- home town Yerwada Pune 411006. At the time of purchasing TV in showroom sales executive of pantaloon retail (India) Ltd- home town has assured the benefits, Luxury & TV life time compared to all other brand TV in the showroom we blindly kept faith in him and he insisted us to purchase the Samsung Brand LED TV. As I am from middle class family with single bread winner, to purchase the TV we have done savings for last two years after that we were able to purchase the TV.
From day one we have faced the problem from Samsung company for installation also said executive came after 10 days purchase with 3 to 4 reminder. From last month suddenly black belt started to come on screen, then we immediately contacted CC of Samsung lock complain.
After escalation with senior and 4 to 5 reminder they sent the engineer. He called me in the morning time & said will come at 12.00 clock but after 2 reminders he came at 8.30pm in evening. He kept me waiting for 8 hrs. He saw the TV & said this problem has occurred in screen we have to change it. There is no solution to repair. He said our tech team will provide you a quotation for the same. Second day I received a call from service center that to change the screen quotation is 26000/- Hardly we have use the TV for last 18 months & average use of the will not be more than 1hr perday.

I've had cells phones since the late 90's. The only phone I've had with NO problems were SAMSUNG until 9 months ago I have a Samsung with Sprint and I've had so many problems i don't know where to begain. I've taken it back 2 times. I had to turn it in and get another one but it was used because my contract was not up for 2 years. So if the screen is not "freezing up" then I'm not able to dail out. Or my calls are dropping when I'm walking down the street. i've been in situations where i could hear but the person on the other end could not hear me. This phone is really a DISAPOINTMENT to me because I've had other phones and products by Samsung and NEVER had a problem.
Bought refrigerator in 2011 since then have been haveing problems with the refrigerator freezing up this is about the third time and i have two babies under the age of one the last time was this thanksgiving I would want to know if we could replace it with another one the people said that would be determined by the repair men not best buy or u. This is really awful to have this happen over an over again. I hope there is someone who could help me with this problem. aloha christina correa 11/23/12
I bought Samsung LED TV from Thailand (Sai international trading) in March 2012 and from nearly two months we are getting burning smell from TV also TV screen has a line . It gives a impression that TV is buring from inside and may affect us any day. Twice I got electric shocks from this TV.
The problem is Tax return officer at Airport kept our bill & we in hurry forgot to take a copy of the bill. Now we tried contacting Sai trading thailand over phone to fax us the bill but they seem to be least bothered also VAT refund team of thailand doesnt want to help.
We are going to counsumer court this coming week and we need justice as this product may affect our life.

Sir/ Maam, I am a Samsung Customer but not feeling esteemed any more due to the issues I underwent because of poor services. Since beginning my phone had one or the other issues. I went to the service centre for the same but every time the issue persist.
I fail to understand why the service centre couldnot rectify the issue even after giving the phone to them 4 times. In a span of a year almost half a year the phone had some trouble. I also requested the service centre to replace the device if necessary but they dint paid heed.
Now my phone has stopped working completely, its nothing more than a plastic toy which a 2/3 month old kid can play as I cant open it or use.
I feel dejected to write the mail to a reputed company like yours for poor services. I request you to kindly get the issue sorted on priority basis and if required please replace the device (samsung Galaxy ST I9003, IMEI 359374/04/123106/5 ).
I own 2, Samsung S2 phones and recently I'm having problems opening my data from the samsung's "Memo" apps!
When key my password, it prompt me to the homepage of the "Memo" and I can't see my data which consist of my password of my credit cards of 5 banks! Both phone is having the same problems!
I call the support from Samsung Singapore and was very fastration that the support gay had advise me to clear all the data from the "Memo" on one of the phone and all my data cannot be retrieve! Now I had to call all the bank for new password and I'm on a trip in a few days time!
I try to use the phone that he told me to clear all the data to test again by creating another new data and it has the same problems but the support side can't give the reason why??
Samsung has a very bad product knowledge support team! Suck!
We have been using Samsung products since they became available in Australia and have many Samsung products that have all been very good quality. We have just moved from Australia to Bali and have purchased Samsung TV, refrigerator & washing machine. We are very happy with the TV and fridge, but the washing machine has been a problem since we got it. It is a model WA70V4 that we purchased on 25-Feb-12 but it has only been used for 2 months because we have only just moved to Bali full time.
The problem is that the machine deposits large greasy marks over some of the washing at random and these marks do not come out no matter how much they are soaked or scrubbed. We have had many items of clothing detroyed and we no longer use the machine for anything of qaulity or value because of the chance of it being destoyed. We have been to the shop we purchased it from in Singaraja twice and complained and eventually had a Samsung man from Denpesar come and have a look at the machine. He told us all we have to do is make sure we run the clean tub cycle at least once a month and it would be ok.
Since then we have run the clean tub cycle at least once a week but it makes no difference and our washing is still being destroyed. I can send you photos of the latest item of clothing to be ruined and i will start keeping the destroyed clothing should you wish to see it. We will be replacing this washing machine because it does not work as it should and king size sheets are now being washed by hand which defeats the purpose of having a washing machine.. It should be replaced under warranty because it is almost new and has never worked as it should. If we do not get any satisfaction with this faulty machine we will dispose of it and purchase a new washing machine which will obviously not be a Samsung.
To whom it may concern:
I just filed a complaint about my Chromebook and neglected to list one of the important issues that I have with the device: It does not print everywhere! I must be with a cloud ready setup. That means I will need to buy a new printer for home. Also, the printer that I use in the office is hooked to our computers remotely. I had the guy from the printing place come over to see why I cannot send anything and print it in the office printer and he said it will not accept things from the Chromebook, not set up for that and that it would be a large cost to change it.

About 4 months ago, I purchased a Samsung Smart TV. I purchased a Samsung because I was told they were the top of the line televisions on the market. I have enjoyed the TV so far and have only had a few problems with the Smart Hub apps. I have had an issue with one app since I purchased the TV, and just recently, I encountered an issue with another app (one that I use often). I decided to call customer support to get some help with my issue.
Here is where my complaint begins:
I explained the issue to the operator. Right away she acted like she KNEW what the issue was. She said, "Your TV has a virus" and then continued by saying, "If you donât take care of this now, the virus could spread throughout your system eventually make it unusable." This is when I began feeling the pressure; I could tell this was turning into a sales call. She told me the price for technical support is $99.99. I quickly told her that I wasnât going to pay $100 for technical support. She again warned me of the "virus" that was quickly spreading throughout my system. I again denied the technical support. She put me on hold and returned very quickly; "I have gotten the approval to give you 50% off technical support for $49.99." Here lies my first issue: We all know that EVERYONE gets this "special approval" for 50% off. The initial offer of $99.99 is just to see if you can get more money out of easily influenced/manipulated people. I did not expect this sketchy sales tactic from a prestigious company like Samsung.
At this point, she went into detail on how technical support would not only fix my issue, but prevent future issues as well. She said, "Technical support can remote into your TV to fix the issue and then configure and optimize your settings to prevent future issues." Still not convinced I, for the third time, denied the technical support. She then transferred me to a "supervisor." I spoke to the supervisor and she too warned me of what would happen if didnât take care of this issue (virus) and assured me that technical support would remote in and have my issue fixed in 10-15 minutes. I remained skeptical, but she continued to push purchasing the technical support, almost threatening me that my TV would eventually become unusable. Eventually, I caved, gave in to the sale, and purchased the technical support. I was not happy about it, but the pressure got to me and their persistent warnings/threats made me feel like they were my only choice.
After a lengthy wait on hold, I was connected to a technical support technician. I explained my issue to him thoroughly, just as I had done before. The first thing he asked me was, "Have you tried turning your TV off and then back on?" Seriously?! Is that the type of technical support I just paid for? We went through several other steps, most of which were common sense and I had already tried. I donât know what kind of knowledge/training your technical support personnel have, but I was not impressed at all.
In the end, it came down to a simple reset to fix the issue. I asked the technician, "Did I really just pay $50 to have you tell me to reset my TV?" I then asked him about remoting into my TV to fix the issues and reconfiguring my settings. He said that they DO NOT have the ability to remote into anyone's television or do anything of the sort.
I demand that I have my money fully refunded. I did not pay $50 for information that I could have found on Google (which is likely where your technician found it). I paid $50 for someone to remote into my TV, fix the virus, and configure my settings to prevent future issues. Also, my issue was not fixed in 10-15 minutes; closer to an hour.
May I suggest that you reevaluate how your operators sell your technical support? Not only are they very pushy and make you feel threatened, but they lie to you! I've been in the sales industry, and if there's one thing I know, it is to NEVER lie about what you're selling. These misleading and manipulative sales tactics are completely unethical and an embarrassment to your company.
I am extremely disappointed and dissatisfied with your customer service and, at the very least, expect a full refund.
I M Dinesh & Recently one month purchased Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos-but aftera week there is a problem in battery back up & Even 3-4 hours battery backup not there. Please let me know how to rectify the Battery backup problem in Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos.
I bought a Samsung LCD 52" inch TV three years ago, and now the TV has vertical lines on the screen. I called Samsung customer service and told them my problem. They told me it sounded like bad cappacitors, and that they would send a repair service out at no charge because these cappacitors are under Samsung warranty. Service repair came out to my house and replaced them, but I am still having the same problem. The service tech said that the TV has a bad panel and the charge to repair it would be $750, parts and labor. I called customer service back and told them what the repair service said, and they said that Samsung doesn't warranty panels, and there was nothing they could do for me. I'm sure I'm not the only person that has had this problem, I've seen lots of complaints on the internet about this defect. I wish Samsung would warranty more parts on their TVs so people like me and others dont have to take a loss when purchasing a Samsung. They should live up to the standard of what they advertise their product as. I paid $1500 for the TV, and now I am out of a TV. If there is anyway Samsung could compensate me for my loss with repair or some form of compensation, it would be greatly appreciated.
iv owned my galaxy 3 for 5 months and never had any problems , over night my phone has stopped working through no fault of mine. I have insurance and its under warranty. My provider has given me a loan phone which is no good to me as its a very basic phone and not capable for my needs, they are not helpful and don't really want to know about my problem phone and say its going to be 4-8 weeks before it will be repaired, this is not good enough.
I feel as though my phone should be replaced with a new one, if the problem was caused by something iv done wrong then i would except the solution being proposed however its a problem occurred by no fault of mine .
I love my phone and all the features and have been raving to all my friends and family about how good the galaxy is. The provider gave me no choice about getting my phone replaced under warranty because they wouldn't give me a loan phone if i contacted the insurance company ,i pay the provider an extra $14.95 per month for insurance.my providers details are TELSTRA SHOP, NOOSA CIVIC CENTRE , 28 EENIE CREEK RD ,NOOSAVILLE, QLD, AUSTRALIA 4566 .
Could you please help me and maybe contact the shop and ask them to help by either giving me a new phone or at least lending me another galaxy 3 so i can resume my work without the inconvenience of the use of an inferior phone. My phone no is 0421104875 if you would like to contact me. Thank you for any help you might be able to give me.
My work has taken me from Missouri to Brookville PA. for 6 weeks, once I arrived here on 02/07/2013 I realized I had very little to no reception not only on my phone but also on my laptop which I have a Sprint air card garenteed to work any where...NOT!!! I called daily to try and get the service fixed so I could receive and send calls, every time I spoke with someone they would try and help me for a while then they would promise to call me back, just to get me off the phone, then never call back. I feel that Sprint is nothing but a bunch of trained liers, take your money and run. The kicker is when I spoke to the department that takes care of the air card, They told me strait up that my air card would not work in this area which I appraeiate the truth however when I stated that I should not be charged the 50.00 a month since my service is not available, I was told that is not there fault I chose to go to an area where there is no service. What great customer service right...The agent then went on to advise me that there are sites bto go to that tell you where there is service and where there isn't and I should have checked this before traveling...WHAT Are you kidding me? I explained to her that when "Sprint" talked me into the air card they promised it would work anywhere, she then told me NO ONE at sprint would tell me this, I explained that they did. This agent was rude and acted as if I was trying to take money out of her pocket, in reality she has angered me to the point I will tell EVERYONE I know that Sprint sucks and I will never use them again and I plan on changing to another carrier as soon as I can. I refuse to be talked down to by someone I pay money to, the story goes ona and on, this is the light version, yet NO ONE in Srint gives a shit, I am just a number to them. Now if I don't pay my bill on time (which I'm always early) they will be right there the day after the due date to shut your service down, hummm sounds like there prioreties are extremely screwed up, in the past 10 days I have learned to really dislike Sprint to the point of changing carriers and I would love to place a bilboard add in a major city dissing there piss poor customer service.
We bought a Samsung dryer in September of 2011. We do normal laundry for two people, nothing out of the ordinary. Our dryer started making a knocking noise about 2 months ago. We called Samsung and they sent out their A&E appliance repair people 10 days ago. They thought it was a roller or rollers that went bad and possibly the belt. Only having the dryer for 1 1/2 years I would have thought it might still be under warranty and it wasn't. They came back to put in the above parts and found it wasn't the case, it was actually the drum that needed replaced. Again, they called the company, and the drum isn't even under warranty still being only 1 1/2 years old. Now we have to wait another 10 days to get the new drum and install it.
As expensive as the washers and dryers are from Samsung you would think their warranty for a major part like a drum would be a lot longer than just a year.
Bought a 60 inch smart tv 4 weeks ago and still cant get on the internet. It was delivered with a port that was not working. been waiting on a part to lupdate my brand new tv... I was given false information, I have been lied too by company employees. I have spent over 2 weeks and 4 hours talking with Reps. I just hung up the phone once again 4/4/2013 being told that they had an incorrect address. all the other calls they had the correct address
but now they had an incorrect address hmmmm??? This company must really be screwed up!!! I was once again told the part is in the mail. Next week it will be 4 weeks i have been waiting for lthis part i cannot use the features of my brand new expensive tv until i get thsi part. I will never buy Samsung again not because of the product though i'm really not sure if the product works until i get the updated part, but becasue they have no integrity in dealing with customers. I will make it known to anyone looking into buying a Samsung product to beware the company does not care about service to its customers. And the reps lie.
i had approached samsung service centre of secunderabad, Just opposite to Chermas/Paradise centre. My mobile Phone model no. C-3262 (champ neo) having complaint of voice is not audible to recipients. i had purchased it on 15/11/2012 & within 5 months, i had approached your service centre for 3rd time regarding the same problem. The Service centre executive asked me to go to Abids Service centre for want of spare part (mike). he advised me to go to another service centre for want of spare parts or to wait for 15 days to repair the handset. Is it justiciable to approach another service centre for want of parts. it seems like govt. organisation and in these days it is not possible to live without phone for 15 days. hence i am requesting you to get repair of my mobile No. C-3262 of customer name: S. RAGHU BABU at the earliest duly warn the concerned service centre....thanking you sir...s. raghu babu... mobile No. 8712379999 & 9700934909
Purchased my phone in Hong Kong, thinking this is an international company so if anything goes wrong I can have it repaired in Australia. My phone fails after 3 weeks, screen is totally white. I phone your support line to be told that you don't repair "international phones". Why would this possibly be, has it something to do with that as Australians we are ripped off on price, phones cost twice as much here? and you want us poor Aussies to suffer if we are lucky enough to buy one overseas. Why wont you honour your international company status warranty, surely the phones are all made in the one factory or to the same specifications worldwide. Please advise as soon as possible as I need my phone and I need an answer to go to the Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman with.
I have a galaxy note 10.1 (N8013 model). I'm wondering when I will get the Jelly bean update for my tablet. I remember you guys said we will get it in the 4th quarter, but I haven't heard any further information about the update and it's now December already. One more thing, why are we getting the update after the galaxy tab 2 10.1 which is the older tablet than us. To be honest, you guys have to be rush in updating software for customers. It's been more than 6 months since google introduced Jelly bean 4.1, and its ridiculous because they just introduced jelly bean 4.2 and we haven't even received 4.1 update yet. This's really unresponsive of you guys. You guys have a worst after sales support that I ever experienced.
I had purchased a Samsung galaxy S on 23/08/11 & on 14/10/11 by mistakenly i had dropped it from a height of 1 feet on the cushion of my sofa-set(a very soft thing) and my screen just got broken. Is this is the quality of samsun a Rs19000 phone's screen is broken by getting hit to a sofa's cushion & now they are saying that it cant be changed in warrenty & it will be on chargeable basis. Earlier i had purchased ***** company's phone only, this is the first time that i had purchased a samsung phone, but i think this is the 1st & last time that i had purchased a samsung mobile.
My Samsung Galaxy S Display stopped working, I took it to Vodashop Menlyn repair Centre i was told by a Guy and Lady at the Service desk that they will not book in my phone under a warranty repair as it's physical damage anf it would roughly cost me R2800.00 - R3000.00 to fix! People working behind the counter could say exactly what was wrong with the phone without opening it or anything. I am very Dissapointed in Samsung and Vodacom! That phone has been protected like crazy has never seen a Bump and has never been dropped it's only 4 Months old and the pathetic staff at Vodacom Menlyn expect me to pay R3000.00 and will not book my phone in under warranty?
I had a Samsung t 429 I called and stated that the screan was white. The gentlman stated that he would send out the same phone but when I received the phone it was a Samsung t 249. I was told to send back the Samung t 429 along with the battary and car charger so I did.
With talking to my lawyer he stated that I have the right to brake the contract do to the fact that I was not sent the phone I was promiss and that the gentleman did call and state that there was no Samsung t 429 and ask me if I was willing to wait.
It coast me $ 40.00 for a new phone case, car charger and headset. You broke the contract not me so I have the right to cancelle my contrace without payiny a early discontact fee. I have also filled a complet with the BBB.
I purchased my Samsung Refrigerator approximately 2 years ago. On March 17, 2013 the refrigerator and freezer stop working completed. I called Sears to arrange for an appointment to come a fix the refrigerator that I so proudly purchase for over a thousand dollars. Sears charged me a fee of $65 just to come out. The Sears Tech told me - the nain board is bad and also the display board blinks needs to be replaced.
I have a house full of Samsung product from TV, cell phones, and tablets. Samsung is suppose to be a good product but I find myself with a refrigerator that does not work and will cost at least $650 to $750 to repair. I did not expect my refrigerator to go out on me after having went to the grocery store the day before spending over $300.
I am very disappointed in Samsung product not living up to their full name. The old saying is you get what you pay for but I in this case $1000 plus dollars down the drain!

We bought a refrigerator in April 2012 and it stopped working in October 2012. We used the warranty service and Samsung Tech (NISI) telling us is Defect Air Compressor and need to get replace. But NISI have to order the replacement Air Compressor it take about a week. We canât wait that long so we call BestBuy and they get the replacement unit replace within 3 day. We already lost $800 worth of food. In December 1, 2012 we noticed the refrigerator running with loud noise and water leaking out from the ice-maker tray and freezer display 80 degree, and cooler display 38 degree. So we call Samsung request for service since we still under warranty, it take 2 day for NISI called and we request for afternoon appointment; they flat-out told us that they donât do afternoon service and schedule us for Dec 8th which a week without refrigerator and all we lost all the food for second time since we buy the Samsung Refrigerator. Samsung stated they have no control over the service company and that is garbage. Any company you use is a reflection on you! So incredibly disappointed and feel like we've been taken advantage of with this warranty service. We want Samsung to replace our Refrigerator.Peoples beware! Donât buy any Samsung Products! 26 cu. ft. French Door RefrigeratorModel #: RF267AERS/XAASerial #: 21830NISI Service Ticket : 4117170921
I purchased a Galaxy Tab in December and waited the required day to submit my claim, on 16/01/13 i received an email confirming the claim had been validated and would take 30 days + 5 days for bank transfer to recieve. I received payment on 7/3/13 after many phone calls. I have however despite callingv every week not received the SD cards that was also part of the offer, forover the last two weeks i have been promised they have been sent twice by recorded delivery and havent turned up, can you please provide proof of the tracking numbers as i am thinking that the deal was a scam and as such will be contacting Trading Standards to report false advertising. I can be contacted if needed, howver false promises to send again will not be listened to, we can however now discuss compensation for the stress and financial loss of calling your department.
We have a samsung washer bought new 4 yars ago - model #WF-J1254/XAA. it came up with error message 4E, we did everything we could but had to call a service man out for $79,00. H said it was a bearing and it would cost hundreds of dollars to repair it. H e said it wouldn't be worth us to spend that amount to have it fixed. I am writing this because I am very disappointed in your product and would like some kind of compensation for the short term endurance of this machine, I will never feel comfortable buying another samsung of any kind. I will await a response from you.

I bought Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini with IMEI #354707/05/018875/0 color pebble blue on March 9, 2013 at $499. After opening the phone, I received an update software notification on the OS. I updated my phone and then it went black. It never opened again.
Unfortunately, the company Digicel, from where I bought my handset didn't want to take on the responsibilty on its warranty. As far as my concern goes, the operation system crashed down while I was updating it. Hence, I am not at fault. However, I cannot redeem/get my warranty right.
I only used the phone until March 15, 2013 and as a loyal customer of Samsung, I am demanding to get a better quality of handset and customer service from a world-class company like Samsung. I expect to get an action from this complain. Thank you.

I purchased a Samsung fridge in April this year from Retravision at Kingsford and within 10 weeks of the purchase the refrigerator has broken-down. I contacted the retailer (Retravision) who then sent out a repair man to inspect and fix the problem. After the inspection, the repair man had found a colony of coachroaches living in the computer generator at the bottom of the fridge which result in the breakdown of the fridge and all my food to spoil. The fridge cost $1500 and there was $250 worth of food in it.
After 5 months of continued dispute Retravision refused to replace or refund the product, but have given me a loan fridge for this period of time. Now I'm at he stage where I have to present my case with evidence to a tribunal. My evidence includes what I have witnessed, which know body should ever have to go through. Fridge should last regardless if it is sold with cockroaches living in it or not. Surprisingly the loan fridge is still working. All my other electrical appliances still work!
Three weeks ago, I bought a Samsung ML-2160 printer from Carrefour Egypt and it had a faulty cartridge. Your Samsung Metra maintenance store would not fix it or change it. What is the remedy to this problem? Thank you.
I wrote a complaint to you over a week ago and have had no response. I bought a new samsung washer a little over 4 years ago and am having to replace already because a bearing wore out. I am very upset about this and disappointed that your machines are not made better to last longer. I gave you the model number in my last complaint so you can refer back to the 1st complaint. I am also going to call or keep writing until I get some sort of answer, Now i have to go out and buy a new washer for $800.00 I paid $900.00 for yours just over 4 years ago. I feel like I deserve an explanantion and some sort of compensation or some type of rebate to buy this new washer. Please respond to this complaint.
I bought aÂ Samsung Galaxy SII phone in 22th october 2012 I9100. SN 7290101105442 in Israel form Cellcom Co. In the first week of November the memory for the phone was full ( I didn't install any application). I rush to the lab and they said that I must update my software version
In 2.12.12 the Samsung Galaxy SII Software was stuck on the init srceen where you see the S sign after the phone is powered on. When I received the phone - I was told that they updated my phone software and they replaced the data connector. On the 12.12.12 I handed the phone to the lab again due to disconnection from the cell net.
I bought theÂ Samsung Galaxy SII because It was one of the best products - but it looks like I bought a faulty one. During my calls to Cellcom company they said that as long as thay can fix the phone thay will do it, and the phone can not be replacedbecause of the Samsung company policy.
I would like get a new working phone - after all the product can not be that bad and troublesome. I brought a phone thinking that I was getting what I saw on TV and it was misleading false advertising phone service is AT&T we are the first to get the phone now.
Had a software update. Phone started acting up. Took many times to grant com. Tried to fix it no luck. They put me in a photon. I liked the big screen on my Samsung. They said couldn't upgrade me to a Samsung 3. It's not fair that I had to go to a photon if I wanted that phone I would have bought it.
I'm not the only one that had trouble with Samsung 2. I have been sprint customer long time. You need to make it right. Not fair.
Many more people on Facebook are very upset about false advertising the whole thing is about Multiple windows tasking is fool of it we are so upset with Samsung Galaxy SII. I guess we will all go back with the iPhone 5.
I just bought a 60" led 8000 series 8 tv 2 months ago for $3, 000 dollars and it stopped working twice on me. The first time they sent a tech out to fix it and replaced the circuit board in it. Then it messed up again a 2nd time and sent out the same tech and said it was the screen. He said somebody from samsung would contact me in a day or 2 but nothing so I called them.
At first they were all nice and the were going let me exchange the tv from where I got it but I had to wait for the exchange department to call me within 24 to 48 hours but no call. Then it turned ugly. I called them back and they were nothing but very rude to me and careless. This is too much money to spend on something and not to be able to use for it only being 2 months old. I am even still paying on it and it just sits on my floor doing nothing.
I guess I am screwed on a $3, 000 dollar purchase from samsung. I didn't purchase the store warranty because that was another $600 dollars I couldn't afford. Plus didn't think it would go bad in 2 months. Plus have warranty for a year from samsung that just doesn't care.
I brought a tablet with an offer of Â£50 cash back, I fill it the paperwork on email and sent it was told it would be paid into my bank account within 30 days this was in December and I am still waiting. I have sent several emails and had a few replys but nobody has actually followed it through and given me the money. I chose the Samsung tablet because of this offer and wish that now I would have gone for the iPad. I still am trying to get this money back and would like if you could help me with this.
bought a 32 inch flat screen about 2 years ago from Costco and won't come on now. We don't even use that tv. As a matter of fact we only subscribe to basic cable. I am disappointed that the tv is costing me more per year than the cable. I have older tv's that have lasted me 12-20 years.
I'm hoping Samsung with look into this since i read a lot of complaints on the internet for similar problems.
I bought a new s3 phone and about 4 days after i bought it , it was in a desk standing on it;s side and fell over in the droor on it;s face cracking the face. I don;t think it should have broke. I sent it in to samsung and they say they need $339.00 to fix it. I have bought 7 or 8 sumsung phones and never had a complaint. I beleive this should be warranty. can you fix this matter? thanks
This has always been a faulty model and after many callouts to repair over 5 years with a no show today, Samsung must now relace this fridge/freezer .
Please refer to: Ref No 211376462 for longstanding issues.
Job ref: 4127437701 is the most recent request with no engineer attending today, as planned. Not acceptable.
Please treat this as a formal complaint and act immediately to replace this faulty model. This has previously been exposed on BBC Watchdog.

Good Day Sir and I am one of the loyal customer for Samsung mobile. Recently I bought a mobile Galaxy grand on 1st March 2013 from the Samsung (EROS ELECTRICAL GENERAL SALES AGENT FOR SAMSUNG IN DUBAI) shop which is located inside Deira City Center.
On 5th day there was a technical problem in a mobile due to which one of the key was not working. First of all I did not believe that it can happen to a brand new mobile which was bought just 5 days ago but unfortunately I was right about it & there was a problem .
I gave back the mobile on the same shop on 6th of march and clearly instructed them to either get me a replaced phone of same model which is as per the Eros terms and conditions or return my money back, because no one is going to accept a repaired mobile which was just bought 5 days ago.
The mobile was sent to the service center and they repaired my mobile without even informing me and after chasing them so many times they told me that my mobile is ready for collection from the Eros shop from where I bought because the software has been updated.
When I spoke to the concerned guy in Samsung from complain department Mr. Salman he told me that he cannot replace the mobile and for this matter I have to contact Eros electrical from where I bought and when I went to the Eros shop on 18th of March at 12.30 pm , after explaining my problem to each and every one of the sales guy there including Mr. Julian( Sales man), Mr. Kapil and also to one of the manager of sales service which I believe to be Mr. Marvin, my problem is still the same and unfortunately I had to leave from there at 1.45 pm because I skipped the office hours at lunch time so I had to go back as I was getting late.
After spending almost one and a half hour in the shop and after explaining to each and every one of the employee as mentioned above still I had to leave the shop with my problem unresolved. They keep on telling me the same thing that there was a software problem which has been resolved whereas I clearly told them before handing over the mobile to the Eros electrical that I need a refund or a replaced mobile as I am not going to accept a mobile which will be repaired in any case due to any problem irrespective of being a hardware or software problem, because I donât think that any wise person who will spend Dhs. 1500 for a branded mobile in one of the biggest branded shop (SAMSUNG) in UAE and then on 5th day he has to give for repairing. They kept on telling me that it is a software problem so we cannot replace because it is repairable. I asked them a very basic question if one of the key is not working on phone & rest of the keys are working so does it means that each and every key has a different software? Doesn't it sounds really funny?.
If the software was not updated then how can they sell a mobile to a customer without informing them a risk of a failure of a software? I was not educated by them for any sort of failure of software . I have been calling Samsung/EROS since 13 days and until now my problem is still pending. They kept on saying the same thing that your mobile has been repaired where as I clearly told them that I am not going to accept a repaired mobile while I bought it brand new and did not even use it for 4 days.
Samsung is a very big brand name and I was proud to buy a mobile from the Agent of Samsung itself but not from any retail outlet because I had complete faith that there will be no problem and I am sure if there will be any, then after sales service will be of Samsung World wide standard. In short I thought that it will be completely hassle free to buy a mobile from SAMSUNG but unfortunately it was totally the other way round.
Now I have been waiting since 15 days for my mobile since no satisfactory action being taken as yet I am writing to you (Higher management) because I still have that little faith that you are going to get me my money back or a replaced mobile as in any circumstances I am not going to take that repaired mobile back. Kindly find below my Job number and also find the attached receipt of mobile for your investigation purpose.
At the end I would like to add that Samsung has earned phenomenal reputation world wide and now the company like APPLE is having a tough time competing Samsung in the world, if this kind of small issue is not resolved properly by your authorized Agent to the entire satisfaction of your customer it seems very pathetic on your part as your Agent is your representative and when customer deals with them they feel as if they are dealing with Samsung, it will not be out of place to mention here that HOW MANY SUCH CASES YOU EXPERIENCE IN A YEAR, I GUESS YOUR OBJECTIVE SHOULD BE CUSTOMER SATISFACTION AND IN MY CASE MY DEMAND IS VERY GENUINE AS I PAID SUBSTANTIAL AMOUNT TO BUY A NEW DEVICE WHICH WILL LAST AT LEAST A YEAR AND IF 5TH DAY I HAVE A PROBLEM, REQUEST TO REPLACE IT WITH A NEW DEVICE IS QUITE APPROPRIATE AND REASONABLE.
Your intervention to resolve the issue will restore my confidence on Samsung
I have been dealing with this phone for almost a year now and I am still having the same problems with my phone. I lose a signal like everyday, calls drop, I have to continue with taking the battery out and turning the phone off almost everyday. I also had voicemails that didn't even register til the next day. I mean what's up with that?? I am just really tired of dealing with sprint and this phone. I called them and we had to do a hard reset, well guess what the network is not responding so I am unable to update the profile, prl and the firmware.
So, now i have to take it in again to one of Sprint's corporate stores, but for what all they are going to do is reset the phone, turn the phone off and oh yeah pop the battery out. I just really want to get rid of this phone because after hearing bad things about this phone they are saying that this phone is a bad choice of phones to get. So beware this phone is a piece of sh*t!!
I cancelled my Sprint service after 10 days of poor quality two bars and lots of dropped calls! So Sprint sends me a bill for $141.86 after only 10 days of use.. OK, I then called customer service ( 888-211-4727 ) over and over again and was told they had to adjust the bill, they never did. Mean while my account is closed. One month later I am getting calls from a collection agency(NCA). BAD business, bad customer service, bad altogether. Beware! don't sign up for Sprint they Stink.Â Bordering on Crime.
I had bought a samsung plasma tv just 15 months back....but now thin dark lines have startd to appear on plasma scree.....we contactd the engineer and he informed us that they will have to change the panel and it will cost around 18000 rupees.........how can a person spend 18000 rupees on the repairs of a tv screen on a product of RS. 30000.......and besides that what if the screen again becomes non functional after 13-15 months.........so SAMSUNG being a top brand in the world manufavturing world class products....i request samsung customer care centre to kindly look into the matter seriously and take adeq.uate steps and do justice with us.....
On 4th December I submitted a claim for Â£50.00 cash back. I received an email back saying the following - 'Thank you for submitting your claim for the Samsung Back To College offer. Your online claim is now complete. Claim Reference: 186907
All that is left to do to is wait for your claim to be validated. The checking and validation process may take up to 14 days after claim submission so please expect to hear from us within this time frame regarding your claim.
Successful claims will be settled electronically using the bank details provided during your application. Please allow a maximum of 45 days from validation for settlement.'
Since then I have heard nothing, I have sent them emails and only got back automated replies. I have tried to phone them several times, but even when my call seems to be about to be answered the line has gone dead.
This is shoddy service and I would like the situation resolved. I made a purchase partly on the strength of the Â£50.00 cash back offer.
To whom it may concern:
I was so excited to get my Chromebook and have had one disappointment after another. The major issue I have is that my Chromebook goes dark whenever the screen is not in ultra bright light. In other words, if it's dark, then the screen is darker. There is no way I can use it on a plane. Next, I was never so disappointed as the day I finally called the company to see how to put a flash drive into my new device and was told that I could not do that. I realize the cloud system works differently but this is not helpful for me because I need to be able to just take the flash drive to someone and I sometimes do not have access to a computer. I hate writing a document on this thing. I do not feel like my documents are as safe as I always have on a regular computer.
I have the box that my Chromebook came in and I intend to send it back. I have no problem with Samsung in general. We have several of their TV sets and are completely happy. But to be this frustrated everyday is causing me undo stress. I would be happy to be compensated with another type of small computer and would be willing to pay any extra for it but I can no longer use this for work. I love the size and the light weight and I like the keyboard but everything else about it is a problem and I don't want it. I have tried and tried to like it and work with it but I've had it. I am quite busy as the rector of a good sized church so I have no extra time to devote to problems like I have experienced with this device.

I purchased a Samsung Side by Side RS21HDTTS side by side refrigirator fro Hi Fi Corporation in Boksburg 27/02/2010. In the first year it failed, lucky the Hi-Fi Korp waranty covered that. It is now 19/02/2013 and it failed again. The customer care line gave me the number of a place in Boksburg 011 894 5485 that either just rings or is engaged all the time. I eventually I came right with a place in Krugersdorp. After the call operator realized that Springs was actually in Gauteng.
I have to pay R360 for a technician to come and have a look, and only it its the compressor, Samsung will supply me with the replacement, which I have to install at my own cost. If this letter does not serve any purpose than to warn everyone about "twin cooling" new technology crap I would be satisfied. How the hell can you sell a product to a consumer for R 10 000 and not warn him that this will only last him 3 years. Dammit man fridges used to outlast people. Thanks Hi Fi Corp and Thanks Samsung. I will warn everyone I possibly can about your service.
Have feedback for Samsung?
Thanks for your feedback!
Sorry. Please try again later!
