Hi

My Samsung LE40M87BD LCD TV has recently developed something of a fault on the screen but i'm not entirely sure what the fault is exactly. As you can see in the first image, there seems to be a deep shadow or bruise type thing on the screen, mostly visible when solid blocks of bright colour are on the screen (changing channels, playing FIFA etc



However, when watching TV , there's no distortion in the colours or the picture itself.



It also isn't as apparent when you first turn the TV on, becoming more apparent as the screen warms up. This is the TV directly after a cold start.



And most baffling, if you turn the TV to a 'dead' channel with no signal input the problem seems to disappear altogether.



There's absolutely no other issue with the TV other than this problem. Can anyone please diagnose and maybe offer a solution?

Thanks in advance smile.gif

The most often used term to describe what you have is "clouding." Googling "clouding LED TV fix" will show that most commonly prescribed fix is turning down backlight level and "rubbing" with soft microfiber cloth. For example, check out:

Good luck.
