Recently bought the UE42F5000 from Curry's (UK).
Not sure which panel mine uses. I have been into the service menu and found Type: 42R6AF0S
I don't know at all what this means... Whether it's an AMVA or an SPVA...? Neither do I know who supplied the panel- whether it was Samsung, AUO, Sharp etc etc..
Can anyone confirm please?
My concern originally grew from when I first witnessed a fast moving image. it seemed unclear to me. But my biggest concern is the faint appearance of 2 darkish looking vertical lines ( black in color, but faint) from top to bottom of the screen. The first is about 1/3rd the way across (horizontally) and the other is 2/3rds across. There are also other smaller lines as well at various places across the screen. Again, they're faint, fainter than the main 2, but their still present nonetheless. They are also vertical.
Hard to describe.. But I think these are what you might refer to add 'dirty screen effect'? (DSE)
If you look very closely when there is nothing but black on the screen (TV on) it looks like quote an organised shape, like a matrix or something). Which leads me to think it's not a defect but maybe a problem with the production method that causes this? Or maybe.... It's just a symptom of a non-SPVApanel? Honestly I wouldn't know! -- I don't know which one I have!
It's most noticeable in panning shots.
Can anyone help please?
I've updated this post to include photo & video demonstrating the problem.
It's hard to demo this kind of problem without having 'eyes-on', but I hope this helps, it is much more visible on the video I've uploaded.
