    There is no break in period for an LED TV.
    Is this TV where you can turn it to an angle from where it is. It is possible that something is reflecting onto the screen and causing what you are seeing.

    No it's definitely not a reflection. I see it at night while watching tv too.

    Don't really know. The largest LCD set I have is my computer monitor (24") and it didn't need a break in period. I can tell you this, I've never been thrilled with Samsung customer support. Amazon's kinda hazy too. But then, so is Panasonic. I have 8 of them and only the three 1080p sets had a break in period. I had to find out about that here.

    I can tell you this, if it's a known problem, Panasonic responds immediately. Samsung seems to be in the habit of telling folks with problems to return the set to the store they bought it from.

    That doesn't seem to be a minor problem. Can you still return it? Does anyone else reading this thread have the same set?

    Yeah I can still return it I have until June 23 to return it to Amazon. I called them today and the issue is they do not have anymore left in stock. They have to have some in stock by the 23rd in order for me to get a new one in exchange. If they don't they said they would totally refund my money or I could buy a different type. However after reading many many reviews this seems to be the highest rated 37 inch LED available.

    In addition, the wall mount that I already have it installed can only hold up to a 37 inch TV. So maybe getting a plasma would be a headache because they only come in 42 inches or larger so I would have to take down the wall mount exchange that and put another one up, you see my dilemma?

    I appreciate you posting that's for sure I figured I would get a lot more responses because this TV model seems to be very popular. Popular for spare rooms or bedrooms not necessarily a main family room unit.

    Once something goes out of stock on Amazon it doesn't seem to reappear quickly, if at all. If you really want that particular model, why not get your money back from Amazon and buy one in another place? Better yet, buy one before you return the one you have and see if the same thing happens. Perhaps it isn't the set.

    Yeah maybe you're right. That's probably the end of that tv on Amazon. Maybe I'll search best buy.com and see what they have. They match Amazon's prices now so maybe I can find something better. I got a great deal on the one I have though....$399.

    My wife ordered (I should say told me to order it) a book she needed for something new at work. Amazon kept putting me off and finally said it was out of stock permanently. Took months to get that message. She ordered it on Barnes and Noble and had it in a couple days.

    Well I came across this one it's a comparable price but I'm going to have to take my cheetah mount off-the-wall because it only holds up to a 37 but I might just go ahead and get this one for a bedroom TV.

    That only weighs 26.3 pounds. Check your mounting bracket for the weight it supports.

    Here is a link to the exact amount that I have. You can see it says up to 37 so I'm not sure if that has something to do with the screw configuration or just as a safety precaution from the company due to different weights. What do you think I'm not very knowledgeable when it comes to all of this. The TV I have up there now that 37 inch Samsung uses the four outermost corners of the mount.

    The support says it has 100 and 200 VESA mounting.
    The TV says it is 100mm X 100mm mounting.
    http://store.vizio.com/e390a1.html

    The support says it supports up to 65 pounds.
    Edit / Add: Without the stand the TV weighs just 19 pounds

    Wow, so I can keep my current mount even though it says up to 37 inch screens and the 40 Vizio will fit?

    You might have to drill holes in the bracket for the Vizio, but weight certainly isn't a consideration.

    Well, I got the Vizio delivered a few hours ago and I have it up on the wall and on...........WOW!! This things is many many times better than the Samsung in my opinion. I toyed and toyed and toyed with the Samsung settings. I took the Vizio out of the box, made some MINOR adjustments and I am so happy with it. Totally noticeable difference between it and the Samsung and by a very big difference.

    Glad I didn't procrastinate too long and returned that Samsung. I ALMOST was going to settle and just keep it. Someone in this forum or another said since I knew that white spot was there I was always going to be thinking about it, glad I listened.

    Oh yeah, it fits on the cheetah mount that I already had for the Samsung even though it said up to 37 inch and this is a 39 inch.....even better.

    Try contrast at 75 to 80 see if you can kick brightness down one or two notches and try the advanced settings for Dynamic Contrast and for Black Tone and see if that does the trick.

    Most people set things too bright and with an edge lit set light is on back there if there is any lit portion on the screen. During screen changes between programming and commercials it is not unusual to get a light halo or green/gray background as no image signal is being sent. It should behave much nicer if you brought down the forced "shiny".

    And is this halo a reflection of a light source from behind? (just had to ask)

    Don "play with the settings and find what looks best to you" Bolton
