I have the exact same problem with my LN55C630 with an AA panel, the left hand side of the screen is washed out, but only in a dark scene, but where there's something lighter somewhere else on the screen, if this makes any sense. If the screen is totally black, it is not visible, as well as when the screen is totally lit it is not visible. It does have a diagonal line about 2 inches or so wide of "washedoutness" from the bottom left hand corner to the middle of the screen at the top, so it is very annoying when viewing anything that is even relatively dark and it is immediately recognizable (this is not just "forum-effect", I would've seen it regardless of reading it here). It's almost like someone is shining a flashlight from the bottom left hand corner on an angle to the top middle of the TV, hard to explain.
Anyway, I'm hoping to go back to Best Buy and exchange it for a unit with an SQ panel, but I know that's a long shot with the monkeys at Best Buy. It's also a pain to box up and drag a 55" TV back to the store in hopes that I get something better, when I'll probably just end up with another AA panel.
In addition, I have serious issues with audio/video sync with my Dish Network receiver via component cables. I haven't noticed it with my PS3, but I'm using a Monoprice HDMI cable with that. I have two more HDMI's on the way now, so hopefully that will fix the problem.
I also have a hell of a ghosting issue; so much so that I was thinking of going with a Panasonic plasma, but after seeing them today, I really prefer LCD images over plasma. Hopefully I can cure this with settings.
I know it might seem like I'm nitpicking, but the LNT4061F that this new 55 replaced had none of these issues at all. There is a slight loss of quality from an angle, but not nearly as much as this LN55C630. Here's hoping I can locate an SQ panel.
