I'm just gonna jump back in on this thread and say, I gave up with my purple patch tv. The 'other half' decided to buy a new TV and quite fancied the gimmick of the curved screen. As only Samsung make these, thats what he went for. This one too, went faulty. It looked like dark shadows being cast up from the bottom edge of the screen. Currys said we had to have repair done before they would consider a refund. It took hours speaking to Samsung to get them to understand we have a brand new TV that is faulty. Eventually, they agreed to send a technician. He said we needed a new screen and also found a second fault with the power supply. He changed the screen And supply. Withiin months, the same happened with the screen. Again, more hours on the phone an Samsung refused a refund and sent another technician. He said it needed another new screen. We refused and insisted on a refund from Currys. Finally, they obliged and we now have a flat screen tv and a 5 year warranty.

Hi Vickip. I have the exact same tv and noticed the same patch in the same place not too long ago. Wait for it, because another one will appear off centre in the top left of the screen. I've been in touch with Currys where I bought it but they want to charge £90 just to look at it and its clearly a common fault! Something needs to be done because Samsung have washed their hands of it, even though they are the ones selling a product not fit for purpose. I shouldn't have to expect to spend several hundreds of pounds every 3 years because of poor craftsmanship.
