I even tried it in Movie mode with contrast and brightness set very low. I also have all the edge enhancements off. I still have the problem.
I also tried "best practice" setting estimations posted by a pro calibrator.
I also tried using different outlets, 3 different surge protectors of different quality, using an UPS, and also the UPS on battery (no AC) to rule out house wiring.
In fact movie mode is worse than Vivid torch mode on my set.
I called Sumsung and a tech is coming out Today to look at voltage levels. These sets all come with a free warranty, if you have the problem open a ticket to get it looked at. One should not have to look at LINES THAT SHOULD NOT BE THERE for the money we are paying.
