I could have paused at least three movies this weekend and taken similar pictures to post but I'm pretty sure if I were to watch those same movies on my old LCD that I'd see the same thing. Have you guys tried the same scenes on other TVs? I'd just hate to see the disappointment when/if this happens on replacement sets.
Here are some images from my original post
No, I have not tried it on a different set as that would not be very practical for me.
You can see in the first two pictures it is not always a streak. It is a horizontal blue line that runs across the screen and is exactly the width of the light source. I am familiar with lens flare, lighting techniques that directors use to intentionally create different effects. I don't think the images above fall into that catagory. Especially the third picture which is actually just a commercial with Dwayne Johson. There is no artistic reason for those blue streaks to be shooting across his shirt. Other people who have seen it agreed and I sent the pictures to Paul's TV and they agreed and put in an order to have my set swapped. That's good enough for me. I guess I will have to wait and see if it happens on the new set and decide what to do from there. Paul's hasn't gotten their act together on delivery of the new set yet.
On a side note, I do find it interesting that electricmanscott is also from Massachusetts. It makes me wonder if we bought from the same batch. Just thinking out loud....
I'll keep everyone posted.
P.S. Although looking at Scott's photos, I am not sure he is having the same problem as me.Edited by Freddyknuckles - 1/28/13 at 5:50am
