Re: 2 inch Black strip on screen

It all depends where this strip is and exactly how wide it is, it could be a panel problem or one of the pcb's that control that part of the screen, if you can post a photo of it, I can tell you what is wrong with it.

Black screen, audio, no backlight. What's wrong?

This is most likely a failure of the actual LED strips themselves. They do attach to a board at the edge, it could be the board but you have to order the board and strips as one unit.

When the TV is turned on there is a @1.5 inch black strip along the top. I was told the TV has a way to adjust the screen. Is this true and is it something I can do by myself?

I'm sorry that the TV is displaying 1.5" black strip on the top of the screen. Please let me know the model # of the TV so that I can give the specific instructions to resolve the issue.

Thanks for understanding.

I have a 50 inch samsung plasma TV and I need to find out what is wrong with it. There is about a 4 inch wide black vertical line down the screen, and I don't know how to make it go away...

I think that problem is outside your expertice, you should call the company where you bought it, sounds like a really serious problem with the display panel!
one other thing could be that you have had something displayed on the tv for a long time and that it became (burned in) ? (but it didnt sound like it on your question)

Vertical black line on screen

Your set has either a bad driver board or more likely a bad plasma panel.
