Hey guys Im new to the forum and I need your help. I purchased the 55f8000 maybe 1.5 months ago. A couple weeks in I noticed that about 20 seconds after turning my TV on the picture blanks out for a split second. I think people in the past have called this the blinking issue. When i first got the tv this blinking only happened once or twice every 3 days. Now it seems to happen at least once a day. Its not a big problem but I do not want it to get worse, especially since i just spent $2500 on this TV. Im using HDMI and i have a samsung soundbar plugged inthrough ARC. I also have had the 1111 f/w version.
Has anyone else encountered this issue?
Is normal with Samsung tv's, it's not a defect, it's just a sensitive black level/no-signal detector for the LED backlight dimming/muting/shut off feature to prevent energy wasting.
Blanking happens If the tv detects any source input signal changes with some between blank/black/dark/no screen-signals or switching channels/display resolutions etc.
Set the Brigthness level at around/above 50 to minimize this black level LED blanking triggering!
