I'm sorry to hear that you're having this issue.
I would definitely recommend having the unit inspected. You are likely still in warranty for the unit, and a technician should be able to diagnose and repair that issue. It's not expected that issues arise, but this should be able to be addressed by calling the Samsung customer service center in your region.
so i'm getting these dark streaks from the edges of the screen whenever there are high contrast or brightly coloured images on the screen. For example if there is a white screen with black text there will be dark lines running from the edge of the screen (both sides) to the text, like a shadow. It happens with all images but is most apparent when there is highly contrasting colours.
TV is only three months old...
This happens with a dtv signal (coax), playing video from usb hard drive, bluray through ps3\hdmi, games through ps3\xbox360 hdmi. so, pretty much everything...
Anyone else come accross this issue?
Thanks for any help.
