Dont look for bleeding on the input screen as for some reason it exaggerates the problem

Try loading a film with black bars top and bottom and see what its like,

If mine were like that when viewing content it would be going back. Deanos suggestion is a good one.
When watching movie is still visible but less. Only right bottom corner is very annoying for me:) and is more visible when subtitles are on.

That's worse than my LCD. I'd get a plasma

Try turning backlight down a tad and put local dimming on high, you can also undo the screw at the back slightly this helped on mine

Just requested a replacement from Amazon.

Below is the pics of mine. I don't expect an edge lit tv to necessarily be perfect but this is too much IMO. Has a dead pixel too lol.



That does look bad ! Throw it back at them, I take it back light is lowish? Might expect that if it was at 100, try it at 55 to see if it helps?
I have bleeding from bottom left, tempted to send back but with back light at 55 I don't notice it. Plus I don't (not noticed) banding issues.

I think that's at backlight around 45/50. I can minimise it with local dimming but it still adds a mist over some dark scenes on the corners.

You shouldn't have to have local dimming set to high to have a chance of a decent picture really.

If the new set has half as much light bleed than I will be happy.

Oh, the boot screen is worse than the screensaver though.
