We just held it upright on cardboard on a table without a stand. Did slide it around a little I guess. Oh well, guess we're shopping for a new TV. Thanks again for the help.

The panel is dead. I do think it is unrelated to the voltage and has more to do with crappy surge protection and extensive use.

Happy to see this TV go......

That's a pain.All the best for your new tv...Reasons I'm hesitant too make adjustment is taking back off and the tv is on 24hrs a day often and worried about frying it,and mine has a bit of purple band/blotches and I've read the voltage adjustment does not always fix this.

Just adjusted my PN63C590. The toughest part was finding one screw hidden in the panel where all of the TV inputs are. Once I found that, the back came off easily and the adjustment was a snap. The pink band that has bothered me for six months seems to be gone!

Thanks to all who have contributed to this thread!

I, too, did this Pink banding fix on my pn63c8000. Trying to get samsung to even acknowledge the problem was a no go, so if anyone from Samsung is listening, I am not planning on buying another Samsung in the future because of my terrible interaction with your support. This is clearly a recall worthy problem, and the fact that I couldnt' get my panel swapped out is completely unfair.

Now, you guys who made this tutorial/discovered this fix... thanks! It seemed to work! Be very careful when matching the screws back up when you put the TV back together. I am pretty sure you could "screw" it into the actual display if you don't pair up the screws correctly. Still, its been about a month at this point since I had the courage to do it, and I haven't noticed anymore banding at all. The only thing is that the image seems to have a bit extra softness to it, but I'll make that trade any day.

Petition

I haven't read all posts, but for anyone who doesn't know yet there is a petition on Change.org to address Samsung and this problem:

http://www.change.org/petitions/pink-banders-unite

"This is a widespread issue for early adopters of their plasma television sets, primarily the 2010 models.

It's unacceptable for a top of the line $2,500 television set to last for such a short period of time. No consumer would suggest that a $2,500 piece of electronics is expendable within two years."
