I have a dark horizontal band near the top of the screen. It is very noticeable when panning and gaming. Is this normal banding? Everything I read suggests banding is vertical not horizontal
Hi. Yes TV is up to date. I have tried picture test and and line is faintly visible but is very prominent on grey backgrounds and particularly noticeable when gaming and moving the game's camera
Let's try a reset on the TV, @Amethven86. Go to Menu > Support > Self Diagnosis > Reset. Note, any saved settings will go back to the default settings.
Also, could you confirm the current software version of the TV for us? Go to Menu > Support > Contact Samsung.
I had a similiar band on my Q7, It wasnt there when purchased but manifested over time and eventually I had a couple of these horizontal bands across the TV. To remedy samsung replaced the panel (after trying a new one connect box and lead)
If the problem has only recently started then I would say it is faulty. Normal banding is due to poor panel uniformity and if it was that it would have been present from the beginning
attached a pic to show what mine was like prior to replacement
