    Just checking to make sure I'm not nuts. I bought this 55" LED Samsung off Craigslist and luckily it's still in warranty. I'm waiting on a panel replacement, but I wanted to make sure I wasn't the only one who thinks this isn't right. I know I don't have a movie playing in the pic but you can definitely see it in dark movies like Dark Knight, Inception, or anything by Michael Mann...:cool:

    Yes it looks like there is a problem to me as well. I had a MBP laptop screen do that same thing.

    Looks like the LED backlights are acting wonky.

    I think it is normal for a defective TV. :) And no you are not crazy, it needs fixing.

    Well how often are you looking at a static black screen? I would watch some movies that you haven't seen before and afterwards figure out if you were paying more attention to the plot or the screen?

    Plot, then don't worry ;)

    I work in television and watch a lot of movies that have dark scenes in it...so I notice these things.
