We have a two year old LED 4K TV and seems to have part of the screen turning darker or a gray tone vs. the rest of the TV. Reading online it may be a bad LED bulb but not sure. Anyone have experience with this or know what it may be? Anything to do to fix it or know a repair person to call to support?

I would hate to dump the TV given how new it is but the repair may not be worth it.


I just replaced all of my LED backlights a few weeks ago. Found them online for $65 and replaced them myself. On mine, I was losing the areas of Red and Green causing it to look purple in spots because the blue was just fine. Then along the top there was a gray strip which was all three colors getting weak. It took a few hours to do. Basic tools and a YouTube video for instructions.
