Backlight affected by Touch?
I have a Samsung 39 inch LED tv that when looking at the screen from the side, has many areas that appear shaded or smudged in the backlight. Every time I looked it seemed like more and more of these "shaded areas" appears. I finally discovered that when touching the screen, it causes one of these areas to show up and it does not go away. Basically something as simple as wiping the screen with a microfiber cloth to clean it causes this.
Does anybody know what exactly is happening here and if there is a way to fix it?
The normal viewing angles do not seem to be affected by this. It is only when you specifically look into the backlight from the side. Even though I'm the only one who can see this it still bothers me. Any insight is appreciated.
