Just did the voltage adjustment to get rid of the pink banding. Checked with my meter and was at 216v already and bumped up to 218v and pink banding all gone. I have a pnc58c590.

So were you able to get your tv fixed after all? I only ask because i have the pn58c8000 with the pink bandwidth and it's driving me nuts. Thinking of buying that factory remote too.

Tried the stick formated in fat and fat32. Nothing seems to make it work. I checked the firmware, and it's the most current. I don't know what's wrong with it. Perhaps it could be because this is my second panel, i had a panel replacement when this issue happened the first time back in 2012, i'm thinking they replaced it with a panel that's slightly different, and this isn't allowing the update.

Guess i'm stuck with the voltage adjustment.
so did you get yout tv to work? I have the same problem it's annoying and i was thinking of buying the factory remote.

i had the pink banding issue, tried the voltage increase which worked for about 3-4 months, and now its back with a vengeance.

technically, i could go ahead and try to fix this again by increasing the voltage even more but dont feel comfortable continuing to go down this road. already have battled with samsung and had a panel replaced before - the only thing i feel like is worthwhile is to get rid of the TV and buy a new non-Samsung TV at this point...

their tv quality for plasmas from 2010-2011 are notoriously bad.

I had the pink banding issue, but fortunately I was still in the last two months of a four-year extended warranty. They came out and replaced the panel today and I've got a brand-new TV!
