My set has had the panel replaced once and the 2nd visit a voltage adjustment was done but the pink has recently started to return again. Sad as I really like the picture on this set otherwise.

Thanks for the link, I was able to fix my set using an app on my galaxy s4 to access the firmware update and then a voltage adjustment. I will post up my details here when I get some more time.

Hello everyone.
I have the same problem with my 58" Samsung plasma and I've been following this forum for a while. I did the voltage adjustment (changed Vs from 210 V to 213 V) and it helped a lot, the main purple band disappeared and the image is a lot better, however the problem is not 100% solved as a much lighter band remains (barely noticeable, nobody notices it but me of course). I'm considering buying the Samsung service remote control to access the 'advanced' service menu on the TV and do the firmware update, but I'm not sure if doing this will solve the problem 100%... in other words I'm not sure whether to spend the money unless it will completely solve it. For those who have done the update: what's your experience? Does the firmware update solve the purple banding completely?
Thanks!
Daniel

I found the service bulletin ASC20130528001, but can't find the LOGIC.bin file for me PN63C8000. Does anyone have a link for the [3D63]LOGIC.bin file?

Per this post:
The Official Samsung PNxxC6500, PNxxC7000, and PNxxC8000 Owner's Discussion Thread
He stated the 3D .bin worked for his 2D model. Download link provided as well. Good luck.
I am going to try the update tonight on my 3D 58" that has been collecting dust in a spare bedroom. I programmed the HEX file into my Harmony One
and it allowed me into the extra options in the service menu. I just didn't have a thumb drive (I always have those damn things around until I need it). lol

Yes, I've already tried the update on my TV, and my TV will not take the update. Update not applicable. Which is why I need the 2D version that actually has my model of TV listed.

Got my 58" updated. Thanks so much to the posters who shared the firmware and instructions. There is no way these updates shouldn't be available to the consumer. Anyway, appreciate the effort guys!

No need for service remote, harmony one, etc

In the 'regular' service menu (mute-1-8-2-power):

Control > Hotel Option > Hotel Mode > ON

This will enable the 'PDP Options' and upgrade can be run as described in the service report without any hex codes, 3speed, harmony control, etc (just used the TV regular remote).

However, the upgrade did not solve the problem 100%, a barely-noticeable purple band still exists, but image is a LOT better.

Good luck.

I have the PN63C8000 and I called Samsung for repair and referenced the service bulletin. They would not acknowledge the service bulletin but after 1.5 hours the ECR finally gave me a one-time accommodation for the repair. Today The technician came out and updated the Logic firmware and the pink band is not noticeable at all right now. He did not crank up the voltage and said the LOGIC firmware update usually fixes this problem. I have 90 days on the repair so if it comes back I'm covered for 3 more months.

Good job! Although I have the 58" and have done the update successfully, lots of people looking for the 63" file.
