I think my 3251D is having some problems. Here's whats happening:
1) Whenever there is a letterboxed image being displayed, either through the cable signal or via HDMI, there are two faint, dark lines that run parallel to the letterboxed areas. Each faint line is aprox. 1/4" away from the border of each letterboxed area. Has anyone else noticed this with this set? It's not overly annoying but if this isn't a normal attribute of this set then I might have to return it.
2) When I use my upconverting DVD player via the HDMI cable I notice occasional static pops and crackling sounds coming from the TV speakers. This happens no matter which HDMI input on the set I use. I called Toshiba, the manufacturer of the player, and they said that there shouldn't be any sound distortions at all when using a HDMI cable. Is this true? Can anyone comment on what they think the problem might be before I decide to call Samsung?
I appreciate any feedback that anyone can give me. Thanks!
