Lightning on the edges of the screen

Apprentice

Hello,

 

few weeks ago I bought a new UHD TV (model UE49MU6472 ). What's interesting is that whenever there's a black/dark screen I see yellow lights on the edges (as you can see in the photos). Note that when I took the picture with my phone the colors got a bit blury and the size is also larger - in reality the lights are a bit smaller and brighter. It is very bothering when you watch something in a dark room and you see such things. So, my question is is this the way it supposed to be, or is the TV broken?

Hello, I have the same thing happening on my TV I bought the other day. What should I do about it as I bought it from John Lewis? Thanks IMG_20181213_202614.jpg

Yeah so the story goes like this. I brought the first TV to warranty. They "fixed it". Then returned with the same problem. After going for the second time they decided to replace the TV with a one. Had the same issue just the spot was sligthly different. Then they gave me a third one. SAME ISSUE. Then I gave up and refunded it. Wasted 3 months... Obviously a common issue for this model... The funny thing is that the one in store's exposure was also broken and even in a worse condition.
