What's this screen fault?

Hi everyone, noticed what seems like a seam line exactly halfway down my 65inch LED screen which runs top to bottom. Noticeable on white panning shots. It's almost like a fold line in a book and as if the screen has to two halves? Also noticed a bright vertical line on the right and left side of the set. Are these dead pixels?

This looks like banding, which LCD and OLED's can suffer from. It has to be really bad for a manufacturer to replace the panel. Your's does look quite significant but is that from a test page? How evident is it during normal viewing?

Thanks. Yes, the line down the middle could well be banding. Just a coincidence it's right down the middle. It is noticeable on white background shots but less visible on anything else. The bright vertical lines however are visible at all times. Almost as if the LED's are burning too bright !

It's quite common. Not the vertical bright lines though I'm not sure what that is. Might be worth contacting the manufacturer if you have a warranty.
