It very well could have a defect. I do not see the light bleed in the images you posted. And if you have the knowledge why not just disassemble it and see whats producing all the heat your experiencing? And considering Samsung no longer makes that model and your experiencing it on both and they're the same exact model, I bet it is a defect in that model. If I were you, I would try to pinpoint whats causing the issues and get replacement parts and fix it. Thats just my opinion. Or consult a repair tech and see what they charge.

That model is almost 5 years old, plus its just LED, not OLED, so you are definitely going to see backlight bleed. If you want a model that doesn't have backlight bleed, step up to the 9000 series. And as far as the heat issue I would be imagine that having it wall mounted will make it a little warmer when in use, but most definitely not hot enough to worry about. It has LED's and a couple small circuit boards in the back, nothing that you should worry about. Relax and enjoy it. I know how you feel with backlight bleed, but if you can only see it on a completely black screen, its nothing to worry about. All LED screens do it. what I'm saying is, your TV is fine. Samsung, unlike LG, actually make great hardware that lasts. I have owned and currently do own numerous samsung screens, have never had any issues with them.
