My PN63C8000 purchased in September 2010 has had the pink banding issue for over a year (maybe longer, honestly can't remember when I first noticed it) and had been progressively getting slightly worse over time (wider/taller pink banding on white backgrounds).

I meant to look into the self-fixing a few times but never got around to it.

Anyway, last night, while my wife was watching TV, she said the screen "went all white" and then shut off on her. She thought a fuse might have popped in the circuit breaker in the garage and asked me to check, but that wasn't it -- AVR, DTV receiver and everything else plugged into same outlet still got power.

It was late at night and I didn't get a chance to test much but it looks like the TV still powers on/off and responds to remote commands (because I can see the red LED go on/off/flicker properly) but the screen no longer lights up.

Now, I've obviously had the TV for 4 years and there's no extended warranty (even if there was, it would have ran out by now), I'm not sure what to do.

Should I just call Samsung and see how much it costs to have a technician come out and take a look? How much does the initial visit cost (just to have it looked at)? If it's more than $100 or so, I'm not sure it's even worth it at this point? Ugh... kind of bummed that this TV only made it 4 years but if it's going to need a new panel, it's definitely cheaper to just buy a new TV, right?

Any opinions/feedback on this or any what-would-you-do advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks much in advance.

I was able to program the access codes into a universal remote. The Logic USB D/L fails however. The tech that came out prior had the same result. Must be doing something wrong...

SMTPE - Can you share the access codes here. I would like to try on my set.

The hex code for the service IR code is:

0000 006D 0000 0022 00AC 00AB 0015 0041 0015 0041 0015 0041 0015 0016 0015 0016 0015 0016 0015 0016 0015 0016 0015 0041 0015 0041 0015 0041 0015 0016 0015 0016 0015 0016 0015 0016 0015 0016 0015 0016 0015 0016 0015 0041 0015 0041 0015 0041 0015 0041 0015 0016 0015 0016 0015 0041 0015 0041 0015 0016 0015 0016 0015 0016 0015 0016 0015 0041 0015 0041 0015 0689

Use the info button on the TV's remote and then hit the above service code.

Needless to say use this access at your own risk. Playing around in the service menu can do irreversible harm.

So, the other day, I turned on my PN50C7000 and saw the attached image. It's on all inputs as well as on the TV. I had hoped disconnecting the power for a time and turning it back on might help (wishful thinking I know). It shows up as a black line here. But, depending on the content on the display, the color changes. This means the panel is going bad, right?
