There is a grid like shadow visible on the tv. Could be DSE but the fact that it’s so uniform has me curious if it’s something else. Anyone have any theories or ways to fix it? I’d though about opening the back of the tv and trying to loosen some stuff but I’m not experienced enough when it comes to DIY on TVs.
Hi, thanks for the reply. The tv (as is the case with a lot of the recent Samsung TVs) has a screwless back so I wouldn’t actually be able to loosen the back in a traditional way. I was thinking if I removed the back and then re attached it carefully it could fulfil the same effect as loosening screws. Seeing as it likely is DSE, is the fact that it’s straight vertical/ horizontal lines a hint as to what may have caused it? It seems like a grid outline so something within the TVs components could be pushing to hard on this “grid”. Again I’m not informed on all the components that make a tv work so I could be wrong on that.
The tv is pretty much brand new, about 2 months old and the DSE has been there from the start. The store (Currys) I got it from are renowned for terrible customer service so I don’t think they would be any help when it came to repairs but maybe Samsung themselves would be able to. I might give taking the back case off and putting it back on a try to see if it is pressure from the back that’s causing it. Not sure what I would do beyond that though as I’m clueless as to the makeup of TV sets. When it comes to the backlight and panels I wouldn’t know what to do so I might see if Samsung are able to help in that manner. What exactly should I be looking out for that could be restricting the backlight?
