Now it is happening again, called LG back after 45 minute call, repair service is coming out yet again said they will have probably replace the board

Light leaking issues

AC "Studmaster5000", Amazon
11 October 2010
  • Summary: I got this set hoping it would have an excellent picture, and it does - if the scene is not dark. This tv has major issues with light leakage and blooming as a result of the edge lit semi-local dimming. In dark scenes the edges of the set have a good amount of light leaking in. As far as the blooming goes, this set activates squares of LEDs behind the sections of screen that have something going on. The problem is in dark scenes this square of light is painfully obvious.
