Problem with Samsung LTN1535 15 in. HD-Ready LCD Television
My Samsung LTN1535 has 3 sometimes 4 vertical lines on the screen when I view it. There are 2 white lines and 1 blue line and sometimes 1 purple line. Is there a way to eliminate these lines?

If the lines are there all the time or intermittent but in the same location it is an indication of a bad panel. The panel driver can also be the cause of this symptom. Samsung panels have had issues with the connector that carries the LVDS signals to the panel itself, this is not serious and can be resolved and little cost.
I had a purple line on my tv about 2 inches from the left side that ran from top to bottom. After freaking the F out, I unplugged everything before going to bed. I plugged it all back in in the morning and it was still there. I was about at wits while disconnecting everything again and noticed that when I messed with the cable splitter that went into the TV and cable box the line disappeared. I then noticed specifically that it had to do with the grounding screw on the splitter. I just tightened it down all the way and tightened all the connections and the filthy purple line disappeared. It worked on my brother's plasma TV as well.
I bought my LTN1535 at a thrift store for $20; the display had six vertical lines.
I disassembled the set to the point of removing the lcd screen from its aluminum frame. Everything in this set is modular, so it only took ten minutes. The lcd and its assembly is defective manufacture and unsecured. Heat at the upper horizontal compounds with the unsecured nature of this assembly to cause a bad electrical connection of the lcd module.
I bought five "medium binder clips" at Staples and with shears cut 1/4 inch from the clips on one surface. I removed the spring handles and installed the clips on the upper metal top of the lcd. These clips fit the aluminum frame perfectly. I reassembled the set adding the missing 4 frame screws.
The set is now the best tv I have; so much so, that I now realize that I must replace all my tv sets. The cost to fix this vertical line problem was about $2.
Sounds like you have it hooked up threw the VCR, there are copy guards on the DVDs that do strange things to the image if its not hooked up correctly and it will record a crappy image. The best way to view the DVDs is directly from the DVD to the tv. If that is a hastle for you then you can get a switch box you hook more then one video source to the switch box then out of that to the tv. When you push the buttons it will change from DVD, game console, VCR, Camera etc.
The blue line at the bottom is one major indication of copy guard.
Do a search on "macro vision: or DVD copy guard, on google and read about it. There are boxes you can get to bypass this but you didnt hear that from me... ;)
I can not believe all of the same problems with a Samsung lcd 50" screen, got vertical lines about 2 inches a part all across the whole screen, tv still works, just little lines across the entire screen. I cant believe all the post on this same problem and not any good answer to fix it, just more problems of the same nature keeps coming and no solution!
I have a samsung LCD MODEL LN46A530P1FXZA with vertical lines only on the right side of the tv. 1 blue line and about 1 inch wide of all different color lines. When I bring up the menu screen the lines go through the menu and you can see them still. After an hour or so the lines disapear except the thin blue one. I had the clicking issue fixed when that problem appeared and it was covered free. Then almost 2 weeks later the lines starter to show up. I understand this problem has become a major issue with samsung.
These white lines (horizontalor vertical) may be an issue with the DMD board. One way we can narrow theproblem down is with a simple test: bring up the TV menu on the screen. If thewhite lines are still visible trough the menu, then it’s even more probable thatthe DMD is defective; if not then the digital video can also be held accountable.If you decide to go for a new DMD you’ll have to search by part number, NOT bymodel number, the main reason is that two TVs with the same model number mehave none compatible components because they are different generation when theywhere assembled.
Also if by any chance you can’tfind the DMD sold separately, your next option is to buy the entire lightengine that includes the DMD, and obviously that’s going to be more expensive. Ifyour trying to save lots of money and you really know what your buying try eBay,you can get a really good deal, how ever if you are not familiar with TV parts,and don’t want to take a chance buying something that might not work, tryonline stores that specialize in TV parts (my personal recommendation: Discount-Merchant).
