White streaks, dark bars - what to do Samsung?

My fairly new TV, model below:



has some mysterious bright streaks on the bottom center and bottom left.  Not sure it’s related, but in very bright scenes faint vertical shadow bars can be seen from top to bottom right behind/next to them.

The light streaks show as blue in this photo, but in person they are bright white. 

Very disappointed, as I have always been a loyal Samsung customer.

Reading similar posts in the community, it appears that there is not much Samsung support for this apparently widespread defect.
