My Samsung TV update

For those of you who don’t know, my TV is broken. I wrote about it a little while back. Now, there was nothing that I did to break my TV. I simply watched it. It was on a surge protector. Fewer than 10 months into its life, it crapped out. I wasn’t worried because I had double protection. I had the manufacturer’s warranty and I bought an extended warranty from HH Gregg. Cool. I’m covered.

The problem is the enormous amount of patience necessary to get this thing done. Companies don’t want to honor their promises or commitments. They want us to buy more stuff. If you give up and buy something new, big business wins. It has been over six weeks. I haven’t given in yet.

I got the following e-mail from Samsung a couple of days ago –

Transaction No. xxx

Thank you for being a valued Samsung customer. You were submitted for an exchange on 11/01/2012 for model: xxxx, serial number zzzz. Currently Samsung would like to provide you with an exchange offer of the xxxy $ 0.00 Based on the features and specifications of your original unit Samsung feels that this is the most comparable unit based on our inventory. If you would like to review the features and specifications for this model you can do so at

Here’s the good part – whom do you call to say okay? It wasn’t clear from the e-mail. So, I replied to the e-mail and of course, I have gotten no response so far. I contacted their online chat and they were no help. So, the drama continues.

Lost or Stolen Nikon Lenses

This sucks!!! Please help!

From the Ashvillien:

If you want to lecture me about security and photo equipment, save it. I know. I know. I know. I know.

Anyway, I am currently down several lenses and a strobe thanks to some light-fingered humanoid.

Among the confirmed missing:

nikon 14-24 2.8 serial number 247093 value about 1800
nikon 28-85 3.5 serial number 2109348 value about 300
nikon 50 1.8 serial number not known right now value 150?
nikon 105 1.8 serial number 236510 value… 600
nikon sb600 serial number not known right now value 300

So, why does this big dummy not know the serial numbers? Because the memory card with all the serial numbers was IN THE STOLEN BAG, thankyouverymuch.

All these were in a light blue Mountainsmith fanny pack with a gold carabiner on the top, and my last name, RHODES written in sharpie on the strap. Also my business cards are in there and assorted cables, remotes, batteries and pocket lint. Maybe a roll of film or two as well.

A report has been filed with APD. I am sans insurance right now, of course. I am hoping my good karma will come through, but failing that, please get the word out to any photographers in the Asheville area, I WILL make it worth their while to get any of these items back, and a good lead for the police.

If you are in possession of these items, and don’t know what to do with them. Listen, dude. I just want the stuff back. I will ask no questions with a return. No cops. No baseball bats. None of my wacked out Roller Derby friends visiting you after dark. I promise.

If you see these items please contact the guys at Ashevillein or the police.  You help is much appreciated.
