Sorry for the late reply. If you want to try to recreate this issue, I would try to find a scene that has a cut between high-contrast shots.
One scene, as an example was during "The People Under The Stairs (Netflix Streaming)," where the boy Fool, is talking to the a girl, who is standing by a bright window. Whenever it cuts from the boy to the girl, the brightness fluctuates.
I have seen the problem arise many many times during the HBO show, Treme," again, going from a darker shot to a brighter shot (someone standing in the shade to someone standing in the bright sunlight).
I have also witnessed the television struggling to "zone in" on the right color, as well. Sometimes, a person's skin color will be tinted, switch to a different tint, and then lock on the correct color. I've only noticed this a small handful of times, whereas the lighting fluctuation, I notice daily.
My current television has a processing issue, I'm sure of it.
