Brand new just-out-of-the-box Samsung LED TV shows bluedots

Hello there,

Today I bought a Samsung LED TV (Model number: UE46EH5305). When I installed it at home and turned it on, I saw a collection of blue pixels right in the middle the screen. Initially I thought it was some sort of a graphic, but then I saw it in all videos from all possible sources. When the screen is black they appear blue. If the screen is white, they appear yellow. Its quite annoying to see such a problem with a brand new TV. What could be wrong? I have written to Samsung customer care and also to the dealer. But since this is weekend I wont get any response until Monday morning. So I had to post this here to see if someone has any thoughts about this.

Hope the dealer replaces the TV.

HDMI Cable?

How are you connecting it? I had a problem close to that. It ended up being a bad hdmi cable. Also make sure the cable is going the right direction. Some monster cables are directional and will do the same if backwards.

Re: HDMI Cable?

I tried that as well. But the problem persists even if I do not have any HDMI cable plugged in. Even if the TV is playing a video from my hard disk (for example), I see those blue pixels.

Thanks for your reply.
