UA55d7000LM LED LIGHT BLEEDING

by Metronome85 / November 27, 2011 8:30 PM PST

So am i the only person in the world that is having this issue with my new tv? What seems to be the LED backlight is bleeding through the left and right sides of the screen, which turns the darker blacks brighter, especially in the corners. What's going on here? Is this a manufacturers defect? I couldn't imagine having this TV for very long if this is standard for this model, i looks horrible! Please Help me!

Mass producton of a defective product?
by Metronome85 / November 28, 2011 8:22 PM PST

From what i can see, this is a wide spread issue that effects all Samsung panels that utilize this technology. Yet considering that the unit is doing something other than what it should be doing, should this not merit for a recall? Why would Samsung knowingly release a product with such a critical fault? More so, why use technology that creates such an issue wherein older technology "Full active LED" doesn't? This boggles the mind! It would seem that my only options now would be to try to live with it, have it swapped for another unit that will obviously have the exact same issue, or get my money back and get a SONY LED which doesn't have this problem....

Shame, everything i buy is Samsung.... Very disappointed.

"The LED illumination isn't perfect, as there are areas of bleeding light around the edges of the panel, but this issue isn't as severe as it has been in the past. The TV is also quicker than previous models when it comes to dimming the backlight. It all adds up to pretty deep blacks."

So it appears it is still there. With EDGE LIGHTING I unsure if this can ever be "perfect."

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?
