In my TV, it has progressed since the first time I saw it.
I got up, checked, and I HAVE PEEL!!!! AAAAAHHHH!!! I was happier than a pig in mud and so proud to own my 1st 64" TV and now this. Yes, it's a dam pandemic, after reading both AVS and here, it's simply incredible how many people have this!!!
My peel is in the top left hand corner exactly like some of the pictures show, however mine isn't that bad yet, it's still in the most inner black border prob a few mm's in size and if I didn't look closely for it, i wouldn't have seen it, but now that i know it's there, how do i live with this??
IF by some fluke of a miracle it doesn't spread and I have assurance of that, i can live with it, but not knowing it if will or not i am scared to take that chance.
What you may not know is that i live in Canada and bought this TV in NY and brought it back over the border on Saturday. I bought the 4 year warranty from BB but after being told by the manager that it is not covered if i bring the TV to Canada, i had them refund it on the spot.
As we speak, I'm 5 days into the 30 day return policy, have peeling and some slight excessive buzz and no warranty. I was going to try a warranty via a 3rd party in Canada this week and make some calls or post a thread for help, but for the moment, i don't have any insurance past the 30 day period and being in Canada isn't as easy as finding one in the USA e.g. Mack etc
In my personal opinion, I think it will spread, i didn't see it Saturday, and now i see it. I have only done about 5 hours of break in slides and 3 hours of normal Blu Ray viewing. I read on AVS that someone who saw nothing finally saw it grow after the 10 hour mark and I am closing in on 8 myself.
My 64 D8000 is an April build.
Does anyone think Samsung is even aware of this and are going to fix it? I sincerely adore this TV, the picture is everything I always wanted and I get a gitty smerk each time I turn it on, but this is something I don't think I can live with, even though brining it back will be a huge hassle with customs and filing claims to get the taxes I paid back ☹
I am so bummed right now.
Tell me, I should return it right?
I don't think I can buy another one right now, meaning to exchange it. I cant bring another one back to Canada and have it happen again, I have to rent a mini van for $100 just to go get it and now again to return it. I hope really hope Samsung is aware and is in the middle of fixing this on future builds.
