I've seen countless number of posts on the web about people having the same issue as I am with my Samsung pn58c8000 plasma. The pink banding that encompasses 1/3 of the right side of the screen and a band 6" down across the top. Samsung replaced my panel when the TV was just over a year old as an out of warranty repair where they paid parts and I paid labor. Now less than a year later it happened on the new panel. Samsung first said they would cover parts again and sent a factory authorized rep at my expense to troubleshoot even though we all knew it was the panel again. After the tech reported back that the panel was bad Samsung rescinded their offer to cover it again stating there also was burn in in addition to the pink banding which is a total crock and a cop out and therefore that voided them saying they would cover it. So now I am stuck with a TV as many of you are that cost me over two grand and is painful to watch. Anyone have any ideas as to how to fix this without replacing the display? The voltage adjustment that Samsung was pushing earlier didn't work. They actually gave me a website, samsungoowpanelrebate.com that offers a discount on a replacement panel or 10% off a new TV BUT only to those that have a defective panel as determined by one of their authorized reps. Go figure. Sounds like they know there is a problem but won't fix it. I'd like to see a class action suit brought up for this issue to compensate us consumers that Samsung screwed. I'd like to get the $500 I've already invested in repairs reimbursed at a minimum. A refund for the TV would be a bonus.
