Don't you have a year warranty on it. I would set up a service appointment. I am sure the tech will know what is wrong and I think it should be covered free of charge.
When my screen is on a pure white screen, I can see two side-by-side vertical shadowed bars just to the left of center. During panning/sweeping shots in TV shows or movies, I can also see these shadowed bars. When things are still, it is very difficult to find them.
I used the troubleshooting guide on Samsung's website and they show a more extreme or dramatic (and horizontal) image of what I am seeing on my unit and they say that this is the backlight failing or beginning to fail.
Is this the case, and if so, is it entirely fixable?
I am in month 5 of owning this unit and don't want to wait for the warranty to expire if this issue can be resolved by a technician. Please advise.
