Default Re: TCL 65" U65E5800FS - Black shading after startup

I think it is a panel related issue, perhaps the side COF IC's that are causing the issue. I had my Samsung TV doing this intermittently and i found one of those side COF IC's was touching on the metal frame. It seems as when they manufactured this TV they bent that COF IC like a "U". I straightened this COF IC and taped it down and the problem was solved. It's been a year now.
My symptom was a darker horizontal bar that was appearing and disappearing with a thickness of about 3 inches.
