Samsung UN55D8000 problem just developed

by spideync / August 12, 2011 3:58 AM PDT

The TV was purchased in July of 2011 its the new 55" LED 8000 series.
A few weeks back my wife reported that there seemed to be a darker part
of screen on very top.

We hadnt seen it again till yesterday when the top 1/2 of the screen
looked darker and distorted in top right corner. It happened at end of
day so I just turned it off.

This morning after about 1 hour of being on we noticed it again. In
attempt to test if it was issue with STB or TV I tried TV input same
issue and tried the blue ray player. The TV could not find the Blu
Ray player. I decided to try moving the blu ray to a different HDMI and
finally got the blu ray to be recognized and the TV seemed to be
working just fine. I have called for service but they werent helpful
and they said unless the see the issue there isnt much they can do.
Now I am noticing that the bottom 1/8 is getting darker and than moves
up to about 1/4 the display. Also noticing flickering of the Video.

Any ideas I have upgraded firmware etc. Should I just take it back??

I'm having a similar issue with my new UN60D8000. There is a dim strip in the top right corner. Did you get an explanation for the issue you are having?

When it started out the first thing that wa snoticed was a blur in top roight corner almost like a scene behind. Later it became what looked like a film screen over about 3/5 of the display. I am waiting for a panel replacement hoping that works, apparently service folks need to see actual issue before they can start replacing parts
