I purchased a UN65J8500 3 years ago and just recently, within the last 2 months, I started noticing what looks to be light spots shinning through the panel. These light spots are especially noticeable on solid colors.
I've posted a couple of images of what it looks like:
Is this something that I can fix or is this panel not worth saving?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Same boat as you, UN55JS8500 and left side insane light bleed. Starting on the right side now as well because the sides of the TV get so hot.. This is clearly a defect and we should be reimbursed or have our ~3yr old "SUHD" TVs repaired because $2K should last more than 3yrs of use.. class action if they dont step in and make it right maybe since everyone is having the same problem
Wow this is crazy the amount of posts I am seeing with this issue. Mine started with washed out color when watching and now the light bleeding issue and visible white pixels as well. Such and expensive TV to be unwatchable now!
I'm experiencing the same bleeding light issue with my UN55JS8500F as everyone else with this model tv. I spend 3 hours on the phone with multiple people and lastly with a supervisor named Onyx. Issue was not resolved. They basically told me to throw my expense tv in the trash during a global pandemic due to the purchase date. Horrible service from Samsung.
Get the Hisense H9G. Incredible tv at a great price. Blows my twice as expensive ks8000 out of the water. 3 years of ownership and won't even power on. Mods on here won't even reply to my issues. Will never purchase a Samsung product again and I will roam these boards constantly informing people to purchase the H9G. I deserve better treatment for my $1600+ tv.
Since I can't seem to log in the canadian website I've came here hoping to find some support for this rather unpleasant situation.
My JS8500 is suffering from severe light bleed and high temperature on the sides.
I've had it since March 2016 and payed what I consider to be a considerable amount of money ( 3600$ CAD + taxes) for a product that clearly seems to have manufacturing issues.
Firmware is up to date and the problem is occuring on all sources.
THIS PHOTO IS NOT MINE but the bleeding displayed is exactly the same as mine
i have the exact same problem with my set i bought around the same time model # UN655S8500
TV sides get so hot it hurt my 3 year old granddaughter . Light Bleeding on the edges and washes out when anything that has a white background in the Picture . Very Disappointed will never buy another Samsung product again
Oh no! I would be more than happy to assist with this! Could you send me a private message so that I can get some additional information? http://bit.ly/2ihPL97
