I seem to have dodged a bullet with my new 65” C7P. It has — at least to my eyes — been flawless for the first two weeks. Then a few day ago, between switching sources, it developed a single-pixel width vertical white line about a quarter of the way in from the left edge. The next day, after automatic compensation cycle had run, it had become a black line instead. Then, the day after that, it showed nearly the appropriate colors, but if I put my face 6” from the screen I could just barely see the line, just slightly darker than the pixels on either side. Today, it’s completely gone. I know approximately where it was, and can’t find it for the life of me.
Obviously I’m somewhat frustrated that this happened at all, but also fairly impressed at the TV’s built-in mechanism for correcting such issues. Overall, after the first minute of discovery I found myself remarkably unconcerned about the whole affair. If it didn’t get better there was no question that it would need to be swapped, and even by the second day, the black line was far less noticeable than the white (at least in what I was watching). Now the only question is whether it will happen again.
