Hi, i currently own a ZT60 ( Model name in Portugal, European model ) , and i just can't complain about fan noise, buzzing, or even IR ( assuming the reason of writing this isn't IR... )
The TV is now 5 months old and it has 1800hours of use, i was always very carefull using it and not abusing it... the panel went through near 250 hours of solid slides from day zero to stabilize/age the phosphors evenly. I'm a bit obsessed with the TV in fact... no logos for long period, no black bars content for long time, no gaming sessions longer than 1 hour, heck, it's been months since i've turned on my PS4
... even so... since the last month i've noticed 2 horizontal bars in the center bottom of the TV, right were i use my captions or subtitles for the movies i watch, these bars have a slight magenta tone when put against a full white/grey or light blue background, i've already tried the scroll bar and the Disney WOW Pixel Flipper for 10hours straight , they did dimmed, but i can still seem them on certain movies scenes, of course i have to be looking for them, but they're still there.
Can someone please help with this issue? ... is it IR caused by the White captions/subtitles on top of the black bars of the movies?! Yes, my Multimedia Player sets the captions just on the black bars, on the center bottom of the screen..
Is it any other issue?! I can't take a picture to demo the issue, the camera just doesn't get what my eyes can see
I wish this was something that would definitely fade, i love my set, and beside this strange phenomenon it has nothing to complain about as stated before!
A new symptom was detected last night while checking for uniformity on a 100 a 75% white pattern, four vertical stripes on the right side of the tv, on top of the white they have some green coloration.. they run the panel from top to bottom... it's something very faint.. but it's there, no doubt about that, even my wife could see them when i asked her to look at the right side of the panel..
Any ideas of what might be?! There's no way that's IR ... some kind of panel degradation?
