I have a month old Samsung SP-S4253 and have started noticing a picture problem on the left side of the screen. When the screen is dark I can see what I can only describe as green and red pixels crawling along the extreme edge of the screen. At first it appeared to just be a single row at the edge of the screen but now I'm seeing a wash of these green and red flashing pixels in a patch at the upper left corner. I don't always see it, just during certain scenes. It doesn't matter what input I'm watching. I can turn everything off signal wise and bring up the menu on the TV and still see it. It get's worse if I set the aspect to 4:3 so that there are grey bars on the sides of the screen. It looks like green and red static in a big patch.
Any ideas? I've tried resetting the picture controls to the factory defaults with no change. I don't even know what to call it so that I can describe is adequately.
I've tried doing the screen wipe routine where it moves the gradient across the screen to elimate image retention. I notice that when the white section of the gradient is on the left side, I don't see the problem but as the grey and black parts move to the left side, it gets more and more noticeable.
Anything I can try (service menu?) before I break down and put in a service call?
