Sparklies on Samsung Plasma


Well-known Member
Good morning,

I have a Samsung PS59D6900 Plasma TV. I've had it for a couple of years and have been very happy with it.

However recently it's started to show these "sparklies" (I don't know if there's a correct technical term for these) on the right hand side, running vertically all the way from top to bottom. They are always there, but sometimes seem more pronounced than at other times depending on what's being watched. They seem more pronounced when watching 3D content.

Does anyone know anything about these? Have I got a terminal problem? TV is about two years old, John Lewis purchase, so well within their warranty.

Any help or advice appreciated. Thanks in advance.
