I have the same issue on 75 inch MU8000, 1 year 3 months old, along with a stuck pixel in the middle of the screen. So far just about every Samsung item I own has proven to be dissappointing. All my appliances have failed just after warranty. This includes washer, dryer, refrigerator, and now the TV. Reading through this blog tells me that Samsung does not care abiout providing a resolution, is aware of the ongoing factory defects issue, and just running away from the situation that is causing people grief and money.
Time for more class action suits to cause them grief and publicity that will stop people form buying their products. Their customer service is a joke. These replies to send them your model number and serial number nets yu nothing if you are out of warranty. If your warranty is up they dont know you or care for future purchases.
Wait for your item to die and then go buy a competitors product instead, lessons learned.
So did this issue eventually get fixed? Per customer support I need a technician to come out and diagnose the issue. It's been just over a year since we purchased the TV. I'm just wondering if the technicians have even been able to do anything?
I've had my panel replaced Feb 2018 for my 75inch Samsung mu9000 and called again a few weeks ago about a stuck pixel and they have offered to refund me. So it must be true Samsung can't afford to repair these faulty panels.
I’m having the same issue with NU8000 75 inch. This will be the second time on the same tv and I’m really upset. To spend almost $3000 and to get this is a real disappointment. Bought this tv 1 year ago and going on second panel. It comes up after a few weeks of use. I do not want this product line and I’m hoping they’ll replace the tv with a different model.
Just to add to the conversation, I have an older model 75" 4K, a UN75JU7100 bought in October 2015. We paid over $4200 for this TV at Best Buy and at first I didn't notice the banding. In fact I first noticed it during horizontal panning of a football field but I wasn't sure what I was seeing. I think the problem actually worsened over time and now it's visible pretty much anytime there's a darkened scene. When I did contact Samsung about it I was out of warranty and of coarse they tried to say it's normal and had no interest standing behind it. My 46" Vizio ($650) and 60" Insignia ($250) both look much better and it makes be sick. On a side note, our high priced Samsung fridge display also failed. Other than phones I'll never buy another Samsung product. Our latest purchase was an expensive Kitchenaid dishwasher. I never considered a Samsung even once. Hope others steer clear based on this and other's testimonies.
This is normal I have a Bolva brand new and it's doing this same thing I sent the first one back thinking something was wrong. I'm hoping they have some kind of firmware update for this.
