I had Samsung Tech come today to fix my panel because of red tint appearing in white backgrounds- he adjusted the voltage but it didn't help.

Next step is to replace the panel but I am wondering if the tech by adjusting the voltage would cause problems with the new panel that will be installed ? And/or by adjusting the voltage will this cause long term damage to panel ? Can he reset the voltage to optimal settings or factory settings ?

The red tint was the result of normal use on a cheaply made panel. It is kind of like 'burn in'.
I have seen these lower end panels have a red tint especially in the center (4:3) area where the panel gets the most use. A new panel will fix the problem temporarily. The tech should adjust the voltages according to the label on the new panel.

Sounds like a Panny fanboy, ignore him. I have heard of some Samsungs doing this? Either red or blue. Never had the problem on any of mine though? Where did you buy it? I would return it for another. which model do you have?
