samsung is sendimg a tech to repair my tv. it has had a grainy and specklyed or sparkly picture since day #1. i desceibed this to them on the phone and they say they know what the problem is, ordered the right part and will send someone to repair it. my question is this, is there anything i should be worried about? personally i am not a fan of taking things apart and even though i know this guy knows what he is doing is there anything i should be worried about after he is done with regards to the tv acting as new or being as good as new like it was 9other than the fact that hopefully it will now work right?)

How long have you had it?

I have noticed that Samsung sets tend to have a little more noise in their processing than similar sets (Sony). Turn the DNIE off and the noise reduction settings off in the menu.

I have had it for 7 weeks or so. As far as noise reduction off doesn't that sound contradictory? Also with DNIe off I think the picture looks kind of Gray and not as vibrant. You think that will help?

Noise reduction, in many cases and most calibrators will also state this, actually adds noise to a lot of sources. This is from my experience with sets and second hand experience in reading about others settings.

DNIe may be okay to be left on if you find it doesn't introduce noise. It's more of a contrast enhancer than anything, but you may have to toy around with settings.

Another idea is to get a calibration DVD such as AVIA II or Digital Video Essentials. You can find more info on these in the calibration forum.

You ain't never lied and I really hate it because so many people seem to experience difficulty with these sets-zaps all of the fun and excitement out of owning an HDTV. I'm hard on Samsung because I empathize with those who plunk down their hard-earned money only the be disappointed time and time again. Makes me sick.
