Yesterday a black vertical shadow appeared on the TV. It's slightly to the left of the Samsung logo and runs all the way from bottom to top. It's slightly darker at the bottom. I assume it's a burned out backlight bulb. The LEDs seem fine, it's just dimmer. (UN55KS800D)
It doesn't appear until the TV has been on for 10 minutes or so.
It seems like this is a common defect but Samsung will tell me I'm out of luck. I've had other Samsung TVs for over a decade so it's really upsetting that this one failed within 4 years. Can't see myself buying another Samsung unless I can figure something out.
Has anyone gotten this issue repaired?
