The "pink issue" certainly isn't on every set. I haven't noticed this issue on mine, our store's, and asked a co-worker who bought one as well. Just another item to add to the panel lottery I suppose. I sold 9 55/65" 9500's thus far and have not seen one come back. There was one returned from an online order because the "picture was horrible", but you're going to have a horrible picture when you're playing SD cable and hooking up a VHS/DVD combo player to it like the customer did... lol.
Maybe just got lucky with our stock, dunno lol. But I have minimal flame (less than 1"), no yellow streaks/blobs, and no "pinks". TV is playing beautifully. Only issue I have is it communicating to my receiver, as in hitting the power all off on my harmony the TV will turn off, then the AVR, the TV will turn back on again. I'm probably just going to disable ARC/CEC and go optical from the TV. I ordered some new HDMI cables (mine are pretty, ok, really really old that they may not be "w/ethernet" capability even. If these Audioquest cables don't work out well then optical it is.
I can understand the frustration of panel lottery though.
