Yep, I'm also having the problem with banding on a primarily white screen.

For me it's a thick band of flickering static that stretches all the way across the screen. The band is probably 8" high and it's maybe 12" from the top of the screen. I was actually giving Samsung the benefit of the doubt and assumed the flicker was being introduced by the Vizio Google TV box which I have between my receiver and the TV. If others are having the same problem then I guess it's not the GTV box but the TV itself. This is upsetting.

To be honest, it only seems to crop up during commercials where the screen is mostly white with a logo or a little bit of copy on the screen. During regular programming you hardly ever have a mostly-white screen like that. So it hasn't bothered me much yet, but now that I know that the problem is my very expensive TV it bothers me more. And now I'm worried it may get worse. Ugh.

My PN58C8000 finally popped while watching a show and now I get no picture. I ordered a new power board for it. Hope thats all it needs. Anyone have this problem?

I have a PN64C8000 that has some noticeable lines that go across the entire screen. Also on a grey screen there is a pinkish tint. The lines are like some sort of ghosting. What parts would I need to repair this? Would replacing the Main PCBs correct this?

I'm impressed that it took this long before you got the pink banding. It happened to mine inside of a year (4 years ago?). At that time the Samsung tech looked at it and ordered me a new panel, but then Samsung told me they couldn't get one for me. Eventually they refunded me my purchase price and I bought a D8000.

You'll find similar stories in this thread, with different outcomes. Bottom line is that I'd guess you won't find anyone with a new panel, or other possible parts for a C series. sorry. Maybe others still follow this thread and have some better ideas for you.

Sorry if this has been posted before, but I did a search and couldn't find a mention of it:

I've had the PN63C8000 for 3+ years, and in the last few months I have been getting an intermittent problem where the screen just goes blank or black and looks like the tv is off, but it's not off because the tv speakers still work and there is no red light in the bottom left corner. The problem does not resolve itself. I have to turn the tv off and then turn it on again. It will start working again, sometimes for only two minutes, sometimes for a month before it happens again.

Anybody else have this problem? Or know of a solution?

I have had the TV for 5 years and have been a victim of the purple haze. I still use it bc it's not bad and my warranty cut me a check. I am trying to get the picture as good as it can be. I tried some picture settings on other sites but it just looks too dull. Any info on where to find the calibration setting would be great. Thanks
