Samsung UN55D8000 problem just developed
by spideync - 8/12/11 10:58 AM
The TV was purchased in July of 2011 its the new 55" LED 8000 series.
A few weeks back my wife reported that there seemed to be a darker part
of screen on very top.
We hadnt seen it again till yesterday when the top 1/2 of the screen
looked darker and distorted in top right corner. It happened at end of
day so I just turned it off.
This morning after about 1 hour of being on we noticed it again. In
attempt to test if it was issue with STB or TV I tried TV input same
issue and tried the blue ray player. The TV could not find the Blu
Ray player. I decided to try moving the blu ray to a different HDMI and
finally got the blu ray to be recognized and the TV seemed to be
working just fine. I have called for service but they werent helpful
and they said unless the see the issue there isnt much they can do.
Now I am noticing that the bottom 1/8 is getting darker and than moves
up to about 1/4 the display. Also noticing flickering of the Video.
Any ideas I have upgraded firmware etc. Should I just take it back??
