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 horizontal15352820703441050519590.jpg

Hi @Amethven86

 

Is the software on your TV up to date? Let's try a Picture Test. Go to > Menu > Support > Self Diagnosis > Picture Test. Does the image show properly?

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.

Hi Mate

 

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

 

cheers
