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.

Unfortunately the light leaking is a common and increasing problem with this model TV, we have the same problem with our UN65JS8500 TV. It's caused by a manufacturing defect that causes the LED lights to burn up, see the following link:
I purchased a 65” curved tv from Costco roughly 3 years ago. For the last few months I’ve been getting light bleed in the bottom right half of the screen. It’s getting worse and now to the point of significant distraction while watching TV. I’ve replaced cables and checked updates. I’ve plugged in an older Samsung 3D tv using the same cables and have no issue. It’s definitely in the TV. It’s incredibly frustrating that a tv costing over $1000.00 didn’t last 3 years. Any input into how to fix the issue would be greatly appreciated.
