55PFL4706/F7 - Flashing / Strobe Effect While Using Net TV
We have a new 55PFL4706/F7 - VM1A1229226531 - it is connected wirelessly to the internet and is running the latest software update - 326. For the first few days the nettv worked fine, but yesterday I started having an issue - first with netflix.
There was an intermittent flashing/strobe effect in the lower right hand corner of the TV. It looks like a strobe light is being flashed off screen. Now it seems to run continuously on netflix, no matter what show I watch. I switched to youtube and got the same effect briefly on the main nettv screen and then continuously while trying to watch a youtube video.
I thought the effect was because the wireless signal wasn't strong enough or was blipping. I rebooted the router, turned off all the computers and the xbox and it still happened. But I still got it intermittently on the main screen - and the effect now continues in netlfix or youtube when the screen is paused!
I tried to search but didn't find anything that sounded like the same issue. I'm worried we are going to have to return the TV.
