I purchased a UN65JS8500 a few years ago. I’ve been experiencing worsening light bleed for a while, but now the brightness of the screen and contrast are deteriorating as well. The TV is virtually unwatchable in a bright room, and many scenes are even difficult to see in a dark room. Is this a known issue? Are there any potential fixes? I’ve tried just about every combination of picture settings I can think of, but it seems to make little difference.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I understand how this may be frustrating, if this is occurring on all sources and during the picture test this is something that will require service, you have a couple of options based on your warranty.
- If your unit was recently purchased, you can check with your retailer on their return/exchange processes.
- If you have an extended warranty you can reach out to them to have service set up.
- If you're within the one year warranty, you can Private message me or one of our moderators with your full model and serial number to have service setup
- If you're OUT of warranty, you can use this link below to find a service center in your area.

what I have discovered is the panel has melted behind the LCD screen
the backlight panel is made from plastic
the LED’s melted the edges
the edges when they melt turn dark preventing light from getting through
in addition, the panel also cracked
there are fine lines in the Plastic that illuminates the LCD
