Hi all,

Seems like this afternoon's storm in my area took out a couple of my electronics, but didn't quite total my tv.

While I was actually watching some Netflix, the lightning struck and seems to have hit my ethernet port on the tv.

Is it possible for Samsung repair centres to fix the ethernet port or is a tv replacement the only viable option? I don't use the WiFi as my downstair's modem sucks ass and doesn't live up to the 4K needs so I'd like to stick to the wired option.

If I'm looking at a replacement I can live with around 20k but I have no idea what's good in that price range?

Some assistance would be really grateful!

How about buying another wireless router and plug it into the ethernet port. Then you've boosted your WiFi upstairs as well.
