    I just had this 65C7 for a few days. Today, during watch Planet Earth II on NetFlix, I turned off the TV in the middle of an episode. A few minutes later, i saw a vertical red band, about a 1/8" wide, cross the whole screen. When I turned on the TV again, the line becomes a dark grey line.

    I called Amazon. They immediately said this is a defect and offered me return. I really like the TV. But i am afraid the same thing could happen again. I searched around and found a YouTube video mentioned that certain NetFlix program can trigger it (
    (OLED Banding Test) Vertical Banding Lines /...
    ).

    Does anyone have any experience or background knowledge on this issue?

    I am attaching the photos for both on and off screen.

    its just a faulty screen get the replacement. That isnt banding or anything like the usual stuff, that looks like a line of faulty pixels which nothing can cause other than pixel failure. Just get the replacement its highly unlikely that will have a line of faulty pixels

    That's not banding, but a defective panel. Return it ASAP
