I just purchased one of these from amazon, and it has some light black bars running horizontally across the screen. They are very faint, but noticeable on a white screen. I bought this as an open box item, so I have 30 days to send it back. Is this something that will go away over time? Or should I be contacting Amazon? Thank you!

Return it. Why would you think it would go away? Wishful thinking? It's defective...or your imagination.

It only has a couple of hours. I wasn't sure if this was a sort of break in or anything. Hence the post. Thanks for the reply. Everybody sees them once I point them out.

Going through some old posts, and thought I would update this one. I bought this TV from Amazon warehouse deals for $750. I contacted amazon, and they refunded me $200 to keep it, rather than ship it back. As I said the bars were barley noticeable, and for 550 I could live with it. Then I thought about it a few days later and called Samsung. I gave them the serial # and they sent someone out to fix it as it was under warranty.
