Q8FN (75”) Verical Shaded Band


Novice Member
My 75” Q8FN developed a shaded band yesterday (see in pics below on the left hand side of the TV). I’m outside of the standard Samsung 1-year warranty but luckily I had purchased the extended SquareTrade warranty. A few questions:

(1) Has anyone seen this issue? Perfectly lined vertical band?

(2) Should I raise this with Samsung or SquareTrade first?

Paid $2,199 for the TV in March, 2019 and SquareTrade just cut me a check for $2,499 (policy cap). Just ordered the Q90T so I’m getting a bit of an upgrade with a few hundred extra bucks in my pocket.
