Sorry for having to rerun this poll but on the privious poll, only 18 of the 76 people voting stated the built month that their sets were manufactured and it appears that the built month is key to getting either a peeler or not.

As in the previous poll, this is an "open" poll which will display the poster's name. Please be a responsible member of this forum and only vote if you actually own either a D7000 or a D8000.

The months covered will be from March thru July so that we can track one month beyond the current month. That may help prospective buyers to see if the problem is resolved.

Again, if you don't own one, please don't vote and help the AVS community by not skewing the results.

Thanks

PN59D700. Outside the range of this poll as well as the ones on other forums, because my set was manufactured in February, 2011. No peeling.

Sorry about that but I thought it was more important to include July than February.

Totals at the end of the poll (10 days) will include your February built. It'll be a text entry such as this one.

Thanks for posting.

This is what happens when I haven't had my coffee.

I'll check with the moderator to see if it can be extended to mid August. That should be about right.

Thanks for bringing this up.

I get that the desire here is to accumulate data, so the fact I can no longer glance at the poll results and see what they're saying (lots to process) is not important.

That said, it's 100% clear that assuming people are capable of self-reporting this problem -- and it's fairly easy to understand -- there is a problem here with at least some of these sets. I suspect the build date info won't really tell you much if nothing else because relatively speaking you'll find more people who have purchased sets already than are brand new buyers.

Another helpful thing people could do is to post within the thread when they noticed the problem relative to their purchase. Don't bother with whether it developed over time or not -- no offense, but I doubt you actually know for a lot of reasons. But it would be interesting to see if there's any data to be pulled from that, or if it was mostly people checking their sets as a result of being asked (or talking about it) here.

There is no difference in HDMI cables. If you can see the picture without visible dropouts or sparklies, the cable is working at 100%. No other cable will display a better version of that picture. You're simply wrong if you think there is a better digital cable than one that is already working.

May build
Approx 20-30 hours -- no peeling

I choose no peeling; however, I do have a bubble on the upper left hand side about 8-10" in. It was there when I took delivery, but it is minuscule and has not gotten any worse. While it's not perfect , I'm not going to complain. As long as it doesn't get any bigger then I'll be fine. The set is otherwise "perfect". No brightness pops, very minimal buzzing, and no line bleed. I will update if the bubble gets any bigger, or if I get any peeling elsewhere.

PN59D7000, May 2011 build date, around 10 days since delivery from OneCall with probably 60 hours on it, no peeling, no indication that it might peel, even after really inspecting it.

I wonder if there is more peeling on wall mounted sets versus stand mounted sets (mine is stand mounted). I imagine that wall mounting reduces the heat dissipation some, so the set runs hotter, and maybe that increases the likelihood of peeling

Mine has been wall mounted since day 1. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

The built date is on the back on a white sticker. If its where you can't get to it, you can also get it from the website where you registered with Sammy for the warranty.

Thanks, Jim. I couldn't have gotten to the back as its mounted above my fireplace. I hadn't registered with Samsung so this gave me reason to do so.

I already voted no problems for April 2011 because I hadn't seen anything. But as I was writing this post, I decided that I should give my TV a closer inspection. At first I didn't see anything but then in the left hand corner I noticed what appears to be an air bubble. It appears like an air bubble like you'd see on an Iphone screen cover. It's on the very top on the black border part not on any part that produces a picture.

I'm attaching a photo...sorry if it looks like a bad photo of the loch ness monster. I couldn't really capture the bubble because it's really hard to see even without a camera.

So now I'm unsure about what to do. Make a claim? Live with it? I was able to get my wife to see it so I imagine I could get a tech to see it. But only on a ladder and probably need a flashlight. Any suggestions? I'm don't want anything wrong with my TV but I'm also leery of taking the whole thing down and replacing it too. (why did I read this post)?

Apparently, the %age of people in this "poll" with a problem is higher than the %age of people with a problem in the other "poll". Just saying.

There is no difference in HDMI cables. If you can see the picture without visible dropouts or sparklies, the cable is working at 100%. No other cable will display a better version of that picture. You're simply wrong if you think there is a better digital cable than one that is already working.

Yeah something seems weird to me, like maybe because we're repolling we're getting the people with trouble coming back and voting, whereas the people without aren't bothering to vote again. If I had to guess, I'd think the earlier poll was more accurate.

More or less what I was alluding to. And even that poll would by it's nature attract people with problems more than people who are just all happy. What I will say is that the data this poll has gathered really kind of shows that there is particular build date that exhibits the problem more often than another... we really almost know that statistically by now. What we don't know is how widespread the problem is (although we learned from the first poll that there is some frequent enough problem that Samsung should be aware of this and attempting to fix it if they aren't already on it).

There is no difference in HDMI cables. If you can see the picture without visible dropouts or sparklies, the cable is working at 100%. No other cable will display a better version of that picture. You're simply wrong if you think there is a better digital cable than one that is already working.

I'm not really sure what to say. I didn't have a problem...would never have noticed anything except for this itch to micro inspect my panel. Then I found it. It's tiny...but there. I'm not sure if I should bother with a replacement or not.
