Hello all, I'm a new member and happy owner of the UN55D7000. I, like other members had experienced some Flash lighting in all four corners and some clouding at the bottom. This was noticeable during the evening when watching a movie with the black bars.
The strange thing (and good thing) is that now all of it is gone. I've had the TV for a full week, since last Monday which I brought from BB. It has the latest update since the day I turned it on and has been tweaked to my liking.
I've read this whole thread and was considering replacing it, but after I tried the tip for massaging the screen aka cleaning the screen with the provided cloth. I soon realized that this did the trick.
I started the process about two days ago and the first night, 3 of the corner flashlights were gone. The next day, I decided to clean the whole screen again using little to no pressure. Alas, the clouding and the last flashlight are all gone.
Could the cleaning (or massaging) of the screen be the remedy for the fix? Or is it a break in period?
Either way, I'm not complaining, now when watching a movie with bars they are pitch black with no side effects. I just thought I'd share my experience since there might be others considering replacing it. If you are, then I would at least give it a week or so and make sure you clean your whole screen a couple of times.
I'm so happy with the TV, everytime I turn it on, I'm in awe.
