Default TV Infared issue

The power supply MIGHT Be Interfering with the IR Signal,I would take it back on warranty because it would be something wrong with the TV.

apparently this is a semi known issue, and when the tv is dimmed it interferes with the IR for some reason, so i swapped it back to a brighter mode and it works again, im still thinking about taking it back

Did you install the ferrite cores on the power cord for your TV? Usually they come with them... They look like this.

Well it says in the manual for my 50" samsung plasma that unshielded cords may cause "noise" but I'm not sure if that's for any device near it, or just the TV itself...
