Default Sumsung LED TV - Thin Black Horizontal Line

I purchased a Samsung UN55C6500 LED TV about 4 months ago and I love the thing.

I starting noticing today that when I turn on the TV there is a thin black line that runs horizontally across the screen and I tried all different inputs and its still there. But the weird thing is it goes away after about 5 mins of being on.

Any idea on what this could be? I do have a extended warranty, I know I am a sucker, but it might come in hand now. Or I guess I can call Samsung.

It could be the panel or it could be the electronics that drive the twisting of the liquid crystals that need to warm up. Is the room especially cold when you turn it on? If not, I would say that warranty will come in handy but I would utilize the mfg warranty and conserve your extended warranty so if they replace it directly by the mfg your extended warranty will remain in effect.
