I'm fairly new to DLP technology, but wondered if anyone had ever experienced this or something similar, because I'm sure this isn't normal. The TV is a Samsung HL-S5086W, 50 inch. This anomaly is visible regardless of the input signal, component, HDMI, standard broadcast, and with the DVD player. A bluish tint is visible on the lower right, at the very bottom of the picture extending up about an inch. It's most easily visible with a white or bright solid background, and in the attached sample photo, I used a solid background to demonstrate.


It can be difficult to see watching regular programs (it's definitely there), but now that I know that it's there, I can't take my eyes off of it! Would this be considered a flaw worthy of a service call? The TV is only about 2 months old, and well within warranty. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.


In the Example 2 picture, there is NO shadow at the bottom, what you see is that blue tint.

Looks like the typical collapsing light tunnel problem. Call for service. They will likely change the light engine.
