So I just bought my 50C450B1D yesterday and I was amazed. My friend has the same TV and he told me I should upgrade the firmware. I went to Samsung's website and Downloaded the 1008 Firmware. After installing the Firmware onto the TV, my colors are disasterous. I have blue and green blothches all over the screen. Also i see "red snow" I believe it is called where reds are filled with black pixels. I am positive I downloaded the correct Firmware for my Model Number. I called Samsung and they are sending a local tech. I called the tech to see if they was anything I could do myself as I am an IT Specialist and I am pretty technically inclined. He asked why I upgraded the Firmware on a brand new TV... I thought to myself, I guess I would like to have the latest software available... That makes since to me. Anyways, He said that I have fried my main board! Anyone ever had this Problem? I would love to revert back to 1007 Firmware where my TV looked great. I wish I wouldnt have messed with it on my first night of having the TV... Ugg, very frustrating.
