Does it happen on all sources?


Try a Picture Test:

Thanks, @chrisnelson327. Doesn't look good that. :(


If you're still within your retailer's returns period, then I'd advise exchanging the TV with them. If not, then it would be a matter of getting in touch with your local Samsung Support team to explore repair options in your area.
