Received my new HL-S6186W today. Comcast and Sony HDMI DVD connected via HDMI cables for video only. DVD's looked horrible and very pixilated in all modes.
When I bring up the comcast menu of programs to watch, which is in a grid pattern, I noticed the lines toward the top, left to right, are curved downwards. Not geometrically curved, but straight until about 3/4 of way across and curve down about 2 inches and then back up.
Was trying to explore this when the screen went blank and I got the dreaded three blinking lights. After three hours of total use!
After contacting Samsung and holding for 30 minutes, they told me a service rep would come out in 3 weeks. I finally convinced them to send me a replacement bulb, which will be here within 2 weeks.
When I mentioned the screen curve, he said I'd have to wait for the tech to look at it.
Has anybody had these kind of problems or suggest remedys?
