Hi,

Ive just bought the new Samsung model for £800, and I've noticed that on occasion there are flashing red dots on the screen. Usually in a vertical line.

This is my 2nd Samsung which has had the exact same problem so Im not sure what is going on?

Is the TV f00ked? Is there something else it could be?

Where on earth did you pay £800 for that???

Its £599 in most places and you can get it cheaper with discount codes at dixons/currys for as little as £535.

Get a refund immediatly and get one for cheaper, use the problem with the pixels as an excuse.

I had exactly the same problem on my 32R88. The line of pixels ran from top to bottom about 6 inch from the left. I you freeze the picture on a dark backgroung then it is obvious.
I called Dixons helpline and they sent a replacement without any questions.

The replacement arived yesterday and it is a far superior picture. Both screens were/are Sp03. Maybe it's a psychological thing! :)

Well that didn't cure mine. I switched it On and OFF loads of times and it made no difference.:rolleyes:

yeah i was getting a column of red pixels flashing on the left side of my set but they went away after I switched it on/off.

I have some other issues with this set I don't know if you noticed that if you chenge the status of hte DNR (OFF, LOW, MEDIUM, HIGH, AUTO) on ext1(or any other input) it will change it for all inputs

Also there is some banding especially in darker tints, if you are a virgin customer look at channel 0 at the logo of Virgin do you see any banding near the dark areas of the logo? Please can you check to know if this a global prob with the set or just mine.

Cheers
