I own A Samsung 40" LED television, on Friday evening 16-08-2013 the glass base stand that is attached to the TV exploded for no apparent reason, sending both small and large pieces of glass flying all over our lounge. This was accompanied by a very load bang. Fortunately no one was injured, our 6 month old grand daughter had gone home after visiting us.
For a family with small children the possibilities of injury do not bear thinking about.
I have sent Samsung customer services an E mail , but as yet I have not had a reply.
A friend has told me that A lady has posted a video on U tube showing exactly the same incident, hence I guess Samsung know about this problem
