Question about Televison & Video
I don't actually see it except near the middle, this can be anything from a loose plug to a issue inside the display panel itself which is the screen unit where it cannot be go at---that is fatal if it is the case.
Might be worth having a technician look at or live with it?

The red line driver at that point isn't working or there is a bad connection to the panel for that line. (I assume the intensity and hue of the cyan line varies witht the picture). What type of screen is it? Plasma or LCD? The following is for LCDs and may not apply to plasma panels. (I haven't had to fix those yet.)
Once in a while you can solve the problem on an LCD by gently massaging the connector to the display panel edge at the bad spot, although there is a risk of causing other lines to drop out. I once fixed an LCD that had a hair caught between the elastomeric connector and the display glass, but if that were the culprit in your case, you'd probably be missing more than one line. It could also be a problem with the driver chip for that line.
Be very careful about tearing into the LCD. The connections are very delicate, the fluorescent backlight tubes are glass and have mercury inside, and the potential for electrostatic discharge damage is always a concern. It's easy to cause more problems than you fix when you get into the connections, although those can usually be reversed with patience and steady hands. The worst case is a misalignment that would mess up your color registration (color drive going to the wrong line). Most panels have a sticker inside warning against removing the driver electronics. It's there for a good reason.
If I've scared you off, or if the connector massage doesn't work, there are companies like Moniserv that specialize in repairing LCDs. They have the equipment and dust-free facilities needed to repair bad panel drivers.

Unplug for 30 seconds from it's power source and then try it again. If that doesn't work, call Samsung for further troubleshooting and have your model number and serial number handy. Please be prepared to tell them how long the line is.
