Question about Samsung LN-R408D 40 in. LCD HDTV
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.
