I've got a Samsung LE40R74BD. Prior to that I had a Samsung LE32R73BD. Both of these suffered 'backlight bleed.' My LE40 has a 'cloud' in the top right corner and a smaller one bottom right. With both TV's, I've found the problem to be related to ambient temperature. The colder my living room, the more noticeable the bleed is. I've just recently turned my heating off and my living room is ALOT cooler. Subsequently, the backlight bleed is worse. After the TV has been on 20 minutes the bleed disappears, it settles down. I've been reading the forums and it seems nearly all LCD's suffer this. In a very quick search I found backlight bleed problems on Samsung, Sony, LG, Toshiba LCD's. I've also read about some people who have cured this problem by 'massaging' the screen with a cloth? Does this work? What kind of pressure should be applied? I'm just happy my screen had no dead/stuck pixels so it's not too much of an issue. Just thought it would be good to start a thread dedicated to this problem...if it hasn't already. Cheers.
