I have same model - last night we notice a wide white bar appear across bottom, and a vertical black bar on right side. Checked signal, powered off, tried another input, no help. Turned TV off and swiveled to look behind it, and noticed that there was a small set of cracks - like an irregular 'X', right where the black and white bars intersect. Nothing has hit the TV, just happened while watching. Have not yet called Samsung. Is this the same type of crack that others are experiencing? Thanks.
I have a 2011 PN59D6500 59" Samsung Plasma, and the screen internal screen cracked while my wife and her girlfriend were watching the tv. Samsung Tech and Geek squad said Manufactureing defect and Samsung says physical damage. Please everyone give me your feedback, advice, and let me know of any others with this issue.
