Samsung 58" C7000 Plasma (sold as C8000 in the states I believe)
Has what's called the 'pink screen/band of death'.
It started out as a small .5 inch pink band in the top right of the screen. Over time the band is now 3-5 inch right across the top and also occurs halfway down the panel.
It's most noticeable on white/light backgrounds. When I use the TV as a monitor the banding would come and go when either scrolling or panning when gaming etc.
It started when the panel was about 13 months old.
It also sporadically buzzes very loudly in the bottom right hand corner of the screen - mostly when using a HDMI input.
I've been meaning to get it looked at under the extended warranty, but with more pressing R/L matters and not being able to find the receipt/documentation - I've just put up with it.
