I hope some here can help me a bit with a moral quandary that I'm having
A while back I followed the instructions here on how to turn off the ASBL on our B6 because it kept dimming during Game of Thrones and now we're having some (hopefully unrelated) problems with the TV (I'll paste the description of the problems at the end of this post).
I'm wondering if I'm obligated to tell the store that I've turned it off (I have turned it back on again now) or if it is totally unlikely that turning the ASBL off has anything to do with the problems we're now having. My worry is that if I do tell them, they'll use that to deny a repair regardless of it being totally irrelevant to the fault popping up now. On the other hand, if it is likely that the turning it off has caused the faults I want to tell them because I don't want to cheat in any way
Here's the problem description from another thread:
We have been having some problems with our B6 lately. A couple of days ago it started going to black for a couple of seconds while watching our Apple TV 4. This happened every few minutes. I thought it might be the HDMI-cable that had gone bad so I exchanged it.
Yesterday it suddenly showed two half pictures very brightly while watching from our Blu-Ray and I thought it might be a handshake issue so I restarted both the TV and the Blu-Ray and then it worked for the rest of the night.
Today we suddenly got no picture when we turned the TV on. Not from any external sources and not from the internal apps or the menus. Completely black screen. Tried turning it off and on a couple of times, still nothing. Unplugged the power cord from the wall and put it back in again and that worked so we have a picture right now.
All this has me worried that it's about to fail. Anybody experienced something similar?
By the way, a while back I got so tired of it suddenly dimming down during black scenes that last a while that I went into the service menu and turned off the ABSL (?). There are several threads on different forums about people doing that without running into any issues and I can't see how that could lead to something like this, but what do you think? (I've turned it back on again now)
