PN50A650 impurity

Just bought the tv and I'm really impressed by its picture quality. However, got a question about the scrolling bar. Instead of bars in color of gradient from white to black, there are some vertical color lines. Is it normal?

Scrolling Bar...

No, the Scrolling Bar should be black and white.

Could you take a picture of these color lines, and upload them to or and post that link here in the forum? Looking at it will give me a better idea of what you're seeing.

Some color can be normal during those scrolling bars. This can happen moreso on the Dynamic setting than the Standard setting.

Usually if you don't see color flickerings on the regular picture, your panel is probably okay.

However, let's error on the safe side and schedule a service appointment with 800-SAMSUNG.

Thanks for taking the time to post those.

Thanks for checking it out. Actually, color flickering can be observed once in a while....

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
