 So here’s my. 75” curved with all the bells and whistles. Is this just a piece of garbage now? March 2017 manufacturing date? Is this still under warranty? Need fixed ASAP!

Hi @Drakisath. Did you manage to get your TV looked at?

 

@evangelion806 Are you based in the UK? The model code of your TV indicates that it's not a UK model.

Bought from Argos so must be UK model. An engineer coming out Tuesday to replace panel.

Had a similar issue with my tv.  Claimed under samsung warranty. Samsung replaced the screen. I was impressed by the warranty / repair prcocess. They came over on a saturday and it took them about 30mins.

Hi Beeg_20, 

 

My issue only lasted a day. Samsung called me and we did the TV Screen test from the settings menus and it was reading as working correctly. When I went to Netflix there was no shading etc. This led us to believe it was a cable issue according to the Samsung support guy. 

 

I reset my cable box and I haven't had a problem since that time. I can tell you that I am not convince what the problem is or was, but it has been fine. Some of the the screenshot posts others shared look pretty severe and I did not have that level of severity. 

 

I will say it's a bit unnerving. I hope Im not sitting on a problem waiting to happen based on these other customers issues that have been shared.  Not a good feeling. I'm glad it worked out for you.

Hi there,

 

I bought my (expensive) Samsung 65" Frame just 3 month ago and this has started in the last 2 weeks. They are dark blotches appearing at the bottom of the screen - which completely destroys the illusion of it becoming a paintingin Art mode - especially as this appears worse in Art Mode. Rang Customer service, and I must say the response was very poor as it took 40 minutes of convincing the analyst that this needed escalation as he tried to brush me off as within tolarance!! Engineer on his way this Friday. Fingers crossed... but very concerning due to the age and price of this television. Also customer support needs fixing

They seem to say that a lot. Always report the fault to your retailer as well.
