Samsung 52 Inch LCD 120hz. 3 inch wide vertical line on screen

Hey,
I have a 3-inch wide vertical line on the left side of the screen which remains on the screen while connected to the cable box and when not connected to the cable box. The Line does not leave the screen.  The resolution on the 3 inch wide line is much worse than the rest of the screen, it reminds me of the way the old Windows 98 'Safe Mode' resolution use to look but its just on the 3-inch wide strip.  Please help? is my t.v. defective?

This is a problem with the LCD panel. If the tv is out of warranty, I would call Samsung and see if they will pay for the panel and you pay for the labor. The panel is not cost effective to repair. If Samsung will not do anything you will need to buy a new tv.

There is a vertical black bar along the left side of my TV. It started as a thin yellow/white bar and has grown to be about 2 or 3 inches wide, blocking that portion of the screen.


The LCD wafer has gone bad, and more lines will begin to appear over time. It can be replaced but the cost may be comparable to replacing the entire television.

I got multiple thin colors on the middle of the screen


My 3-year old 52-inch Toshiba flat panel TV (Model # 52RV53U, Serial # AM409000295) developed a display issue (purchased Aug. 2008, manufactured July 2008). Vertical multicolored lines appeared on the screen just left of center. The band of thin vertical bars is 5.5 inches wide. The lines are about 1/16-inch wide. They are stationary, always exactly in same place. They over-ride any other picture on the screen (no transparency). They are there all time even with no video inputs to the TV after the unit is turned on. See picture #1. The TV works well in every other respect, but, obviously, it is annoying to watch the picture with the color band blocking about 1/6 of the picture.

I already swapped out the TCON board with no improvement and replugged the TCON board cables with no improvement.

Most likely it is the flat panel tab bond failure (panel made by Samsung). Further updates will be on my Facebook page.

Got white vertical lines on left side of display


Vertical lines on an LCD screen are not a good sign. This usually means that your screen is going bad.
