    I had a problem like this. The red separated from the blue on the left side, slightly on the right, and couldn't be fixed using the automatic or manual convergence methods. Unfortunately I had to call a tv repair shop. They had to replace the red color controller microcircuit. It cost about $350, but I had only spent $300 buying this tv from a friend so I deemed it worth the cost. The repair man said this part hardly ever fails so they didn't even stock the part. I guess we are the lucky ones with defective parts.

First check if in that area you have some loudspeaker if so remove it from that location and put far away from your television and then turn off your tv , i mean unplug supply cable for 15 min and then turn on to see if that problem was fixed if that dont work go to one authorized service

Good Day; Carlo;
There is an adjustment. Try the Convergence Adjustment, if no fix, the TV's circuits need repair and you should an Authorized Service Center, GET estimate first. Good Luck, big IRISH.

Thin Red Line on LCD TV


I had a similar problem with my LCD screen TV, and to my dismay, my warranty just ran out. A thin red line began to appear on the right side of the screen, and since many online and expert sources pretty much say replace the expensive LCD screen or get a professional to fix it (in which I suspect to be a business plot to get people to go to pricey experts), I decided to look for other possible alternatives. 
Here is some tips/solutions I was given (and it worked! at least for me): 
1) Turn off the LCD and unplug the power source and let it rest for 5-10 minutes. Turn it back on and see if it disappears or improve. (This is the one I used.)
2) While turned off, try jiggling gently all chords connected to the TV (cables, power chords, etc.); you could even try unplugging and replugging the chords/cables. Turn the TV back on and see if the red line disappeared or improve. (This is the one I heard worked for others.)
If the above doesn't work then I'm afraid you do have a bad panel on your screen and will need to call in the experts or get a new TV. I hope this will help. Best Wishes.

Gray line on left side of screen


I spoke with Samsung - they said this is a minor and easy to fix problem caused by a "blocked or collapsed channel" - whatever that is. They also recommended that if I have any warantee coverage (I do) that I not attempt this repair myself and that a technician be called in. That's my plan. I hope this helps.
