New purchase - questions on some issues

Hi all,

My set came on Monday, and I kind of love it. However, I've noticed a couple of issues. I did a search of this thread, and found some others with similar issues, but didn't find any resolutions.
  • Every 1-3 minutes the set will blink. For a single instant, the picture will dim, in a way that reminds me of a blinking your eyes. This issue scares me the most because it's not so bad as to warrant the hassle of replacement, but what if it's a sign of something worse.
  • Some of the "smart dimming" zones appear brighter than others. In an all black scene, with smart dimming off, about 5 of the 16 zones that appear brighter than the others (the 2 lowest ones on the right, the 4th lowest on the right, and 1 or 2 on the left). Again, a livable problem, since it only affects very dim scenes, but in those scenes it creates a blueish cast in that area. Is it leaking light in front of the set?

Just wondering if anyone else has chosen to live with these features, found a fix, or, especially, had the first issue get worse over time.

Yes. But he has posted that he's gotten some new equipment and training and anticipates even better results from his next calibration. He has two M801ds, so there may be two different calibrations from him. Good luck. I'm very satisfied with my set's picture.
