Samsung UN65D8000 Light Gray Vertical Line

by TMShark / January 3, 2012 10:35 AM PST

Good Evening,

Over the weekend my 3 month old UN65D8000 developed a 1/2 inch vertical gray line on the right side of the picture. It appears on all inputs, Directv, Blu-Ray, over the air digital, and Yamaha receiver.

For the money I paid for this TV, this is totally unacceptable.

If anyone has any suggestions on how to fix, etc. your help would be greatly appreciated.

Should be a warranty issue.

Try as the manufacturers may, failures do still happen. Time to call it in.

Thanks R. Proffitt, now the million dollar question..............I want a brand new TV, not out of bounds in my opinion, what are the chances of that happening?

I just fear one problem will lead to another........not acceptable for a $4K TV.

Any other opinions/comments appreciated.

But the retailer and Samsung service in your area will answer that question.

As you may suspect, a new set would be just a probable to have an issue later. Whereas this set with it's problem resolved is further into the bathtub curve.

I apologize as I write about the bathtub curve but you can see it at

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
