Noticed this white spot on my 4k Samsung TV. Time to buy a new TV or just live with it?
 

 
It’s not as bad as others I’ve seen online, but it’s still noticeable and it bothers me. I heard it’s one of the diffuser lenses on the backlight falling out.

I’ve had this TV for over 8 years. Never had any issues and been happy so quite disappointed.

Not sure if it’s worth trying to repair or worth the money to buy a new one?

Would you just live with it?

UPDATE:

Said fu#k it and dropped 2 stacks at Costco on a A80CL 65” OLED.

Man this my first OLED. Obviously in my honeymoon phase, but I think it’s safe to say I will never go back. Straight fire.

Glad I got Sony. Worth the extra few hundred bucks just for the sound, smooth interface, and Dolby. Can’t believe I been missing I out all these years. So happy. Hopefully I won’t have to deal with white spots on this one later down the road.

Also, took it off the wall mount and gonna get a TV stand for it soon. My last sh1t in pictures above was way too high. Can’t believe how dumb I was not lowering that earlier.

Gave away the TV with white spot to my brother.

Appreciate all the game fam

I feel you, but I think this can happen to Sony TVs as well.

Yes but not as often. They also use different technology for backlighting

I worked at magnolia while I went to college and Samsung and LG TVs are defective at a 5:1 rate compared to Sony. In fact Samsung got kicked out of CES a few years back for trying to steal Sonys tech

From what I hear it's never worth trying to repair a TV. If you don't like it just buy a new one

I just called a repair shop near me. He said it will cost $200 to replace all the strips. Pretty common problem he said and it will be like new. He said more will eventually fall off.

I guess my issue is would it just be better to buy a new one instead.

Trying to get a black background, but doesn’t really show up after I darkened the brightness and other settings.

It was hella noticeable with my older picture settings I had brightness all the way up.

Samsung makes the worst fu#kin TVs. My TV is doing something similar. I’ll never buy another Samsung TV

Even when the TVs work, the colors are too vivid. Their TVs look like liquor store windows

Do y’all think I should upgrade to a 65”? I’m 10 feet away viewing distance.

Not sure how it will look with the weird fireplace mantle placement. It’s not centered.

I donít think itís that bad. Like you said in your other post, Iíd maybe upgrade the size but thatís a personal choice. I moved my 60 inch to my bedroom and bought a 75 for the living room.

75 is huge. I heard with TVs though, bigger is always better always (pause).

No regrets right?

Don't waste money on a sound bar. Upgrade the right way and build out a home theater system. The sound is unmatched.

No they both use panels made by ďSamsung displayĒ which is a subsidiary of Samsung. However they donít use their panels, they use their manufacturing facilities to produce superior panels. Samsung rolls out cheaper panels by the billions. Itís facts and everyone in that industry knows it.
