Have you applied it to your PDP? Does it make any difference that you can see?

I finally found an answer to this issue! It seems my daughter stayed with us a few nights and setup her Netflix account on the Samsung app without my knowledge. All I had to do was delete her account from the app which was no easy task. After some searching on the net I found this:

To deactivate the device, get into the Netflix screen on that device, then using your device's remote control, hit the following buttons:

up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, up, up, up, up.
This should take you to a Netflix system information screen with the option to Disable or Deactivate the player from your Netflix account. Click the "Deactivate" button to remove the link to your Netflix account.

Not very intuitive, but it worked

So, I was able to repair my 64F8500 for another year but now I think its starting to 'go' again. No power-on issues, instead the brightness is noticeably not bright, resulting in black-crush in most scenes. Which is ironic since I bought this TV for its black-levels. I have the cell-level maxed to 20 and 'Brightness' etc tweaked to try and get usable low-black detail.

Have others' experienced this symptom and was there a repair? I'm assuming there's another board or capacitor that needs replacement, but I think I'd rather just buy another TV. (After less than 4 years, ugh.) The TV still looks beautiful on bright source-material like animated kids movies, of which we watch a lot.

does updating the firmware change your settings?
