Question about Samsung LN-R408D 40 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Display problem with Samsung 40'' LCD.

I have a 40" Samsung LCD which is about 3 years old. Lately I have noticed that there are 2 wide blurry line shadows (bruises?) running vertically down the center of the screen in a sort of staggered open and close brackets shape ( ). It is particularly noticeable when there is a bright clear image on screen, the brighter the image, the more of a problem it becomes. I know that LCDs are not self-illuminating and I am assuming this is some kind of burn from the light source behind the panel. I'm probably completely wrong though! Can anyone please tell me what this is and if there's anything that can be done to rectify it?

This is usually an issue with the TCP (Tape Carrier Package) on the LCD panel prying loose. You need to wedge something on top of the TCP in the problem area that will apply pressure (rubber or foam. That will do away with the lines.

Vertical lines on my 40 inch lcd mitsubishi hdtv 1080


Similar problem with an eleven and a half month old LT-40148. Approx. 1 inch vertical banding line on left side of screen on all inputs. After about two weeks, same problem on the right side of the screen.

Fortunately this occurred two weeks prior to the one year warranty expiring.

Called Mits customer service and they referred me to an authorized service center who I happened to have dealt with before.

They picked up the set. The front panel (LCD screen ) had to be replaced. Set was gone for two weeks as parts were not in stock. There was no charge. I hope this screen last more than a year.
