Dark cloud on my Samsung LCD - what causes this?

Hi!

My otherwise excellent Samsung LE46B65x has developed a dark could over the past 6 months. It's about two and a half year old so out of warranty. I suspect there's nothing that can be done, at least within sensible costs :cry:



But - what is this? - and what is the cause?

Is it the LCD panel itself or the backlighting (CFL)? As the clould is quite irregular, it seems strange that it would be the backlighting but I'm no expert so...

Any suggestions?

Is this a typical issue in general or perhaps a known "Samsung" issue - i e avoid this brand at next purchase.

M.

I too am intrigued by this. I saw the same problem in the house of an aquaintance on a Sharp LCD TV.

They thought they'd been cleaning their screen incorrectly, some sort of anti-static spray polish had been used. I'm not convinced by that or the thought that it may be a backlight issue.

Any ideas from the techies/editorial?
