Default Un43nu7100

Anyone having issues with the edgelit where it burns on one side? I replaced both left and right side with brand new edgelit and the same left side burned out again. It only lasted one day. I don't want to replace it again with a chance of it burning.

Yes, we are refusing to do any edge lit back light repairs on Samsung Tv's due to premature failure and what we find when we get in there. The clear diffuser many times get's melted because they are sitting right on top of the led's which will leave light leak where it's melted. Or they can get so hot it can crack the diffuser and you will see the crack behind the panel. If you own a edge lit Samsung make sure it's not set on Dynamic in picture settings and bring the backlights down to 50% or lower. These Tv's were designed to fail and I wouldn't bother spending any money putting in a new set of bar's. This is why they are going to a new backlighting design. Samsung you suck.
