Hi, my (55) AF9 developed a band like that after that sort of time. I did a manual pixel refresh, which didn’t sort it, but some 6 months later or so it has settled down again. And now it’s unnoticeable.Hi guys - I'm just looking for some advice... I've had my AF9 for 6 months or so and love it, up until today it's been faultless. Problem is I came home tonight and started to watch TV and noticed something was off, I switched to an unused input as that displays the fairly uniform grey and this is what it looks like...

It's not moved from the wall mount since I bought it, and I've not been watching anything with that sort of image that could have caused screen burn. The banding remains whatever is displayed so I'm pretty sure its the physical screen.
It definitely wasn't like that yesterday, that band on the right hand side cuts right down the middle of the menus and I happened to check the input settings so would have noticed it straight away. Any ideas?
So I’ve experienced the so called “aging” effect of OLED. While my panel is far from perfect in grey screens it has returned to nothing being visible on real content.
I really don’t want to perturb you though from a warranty swap if that’s the way you’d prefer to go.
