Sony A8H OLED black color issues ? Not sure what this is ?


Novice Member
Hello everyone,

First off , I must start off by saying I’m extremely new to high end(ish) TVs so please excuse me if I don’t know what I am talking about.

I recently bought a 55inch Sony a8h oled and noticed during certain scenes have blotched dark areas or artifacts.

i researched this an from what I can see this is what’s called crushed black( please correct me if I am wrong)

is this normal for OLEDs or should I return and get another one. Maybe a panel defect ? Not sure if the pictures I’ve attached do any justice but I can assure you it looks worse in person and very apparent.
