Just purchased a LG 42LK520 42" LCD TV 120hz 1080p from best buy, help?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I just purchased this tv at best buy and I noticed when the screen is black there is a faint white light in the bottom right hand corner of the screen, is this normal for this tv or a defect? I thought it could possibly be light leaking in from the side power on off button that lights up red or blue. Help if anyone has this tv and can confirm if my tv is good.

It's called backlight bleeding and the cheaper the tv, the worse it usually is.

I saw the light when the screen goes full black, like during a cut scene. No the room was not completely dark.
