I have bought a Samsung EU40C700 LCD tv.

Once a t home I have discovered what a "backlight bleeding problem is.


While a could get into the service menu I couldn't find the proper display hours-on information: I suspect the TV was overtsressed in the shop where I bought it, as the TV set was discontinued and got the last one off the shelf. The salesman toldme it was on the shelf only for 3 weeks, but sounds like a lie.


- Could the over-usage cause this?

- Should I return this set immediately?

What is the backlight set to in that picture? Is the tv still in "torch" mode?


If that is after turning down the backlight and calibrating I would be mighty scared if it still looked like that. (heck, I'd be scared even if it wasn't)


To answer your questions:


1) No

2) Yes

If it was mine, I'd return it in a heartbeat.

The backlight was set to 10 out of 20. Setting it to 0 the spots disappear however the image gets very low and it is difficult to adjust it using contrast & luminosity...


What is torch mode?

When setting it to 0, the spots disappear, however the image gets very low and it is difficult to adjust it using contrast & luminosity...i need to set to 1 at least to have an acceptable range during daylight... is this normal?


TV is not set in torch mode

Exactly, especially for a high end model like the C7000. This is why I ignore salesmen when they say "LED" is much better than LCD. I am no fan of edge-lit LED-LCD TVs.
