Question about Samsung LN-R328W 32 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

1 Answer

Faint Horizontal Line

I have a 'barely noticeable' according to my GF line (took about 2 minutes to get here to see it) which appears on the screen across all sources about 2/3 of the way down. Its about 5-10 pixels tall and appears as darker than the rest of the image, its not dead pixels and looks antialiased top and bottom (the pixels are displaying OK, just slighly darker, <10% darker than lines above & below) - my first thought was that it was dust on the screen. How noticeable it is depends on the picture at the time, even when prominent it needs pointing out to others, but now I know its there its annoying the hell out of me! I've ruled out interference/rear connection probs. I've got a 10yr warranty on the TV, but I'd like to be able to say whats up before ringing since its not a really obvious fault. Thanks.

Re: Faint Horizontal Line

Your problem could be a bad LCD screen, and beleive me will get worse with age. It could be a Driver IC is not putting out the proper drive for that matrix of TFT. If you have a warranty, stand by your guns as its not right, so call and have the servicer make it right. Good Luck PS please do not forget to rate this thread.

Faint horizontal lines from top to bottom after an hour of use...

I can tell you right off the bat that is a service issue you will have to take up with sharp. Contact their operational support, they have a quick turnaround with things like that. When you call, they will most likely ask you to take digital pictures of these black lines and have you e-mail the pics to them.

Noise and horizontal line

Very easy Fix, The problem is the cable box is not grounded properly. (not your fault) Go to the Local store and get a Plug adapter, just to change the TV plug that goes into the wall or surge protector from 3 to 2. Trust me on this....
