3 Horizontal lines distorting picture

My Samsung LN52A650A1FXZA has 3 horizontal lines that distort the picture when I first turn it on. It lasts for 5 or 10 seconds then goes away. The tv is 4 yrs old. My son has been playing some (TOO Much) xbox on it lately. Could that be the problem. Any help would appreciated. Thank You

When you say "distort the picture", are you referring to dark image? double picture

SOURCE: Samsung Plasma TV - picture has 6 sections of horizontal lines

All I can say is when you watch T.V. the plasmas run off of plasma gas and when you leave something on for so long it burns in the screen. I have the same T.V. and when watching like the weather channel it leaves lines but they go away. If yours are permanent then you can't do anything, but it may help if you go on your remote and go to "menu" then look for "setup" and scroll down with the arrows on your remote. Look for "screen burn protection" and select "white screen". This will make your whole screen white and it may take out the lines. If you let it sit white it won't hurt it. All one color won't hurt, the only thing that hurts is like bright white lines in front of a dark background. Just give your T.V. a break from time to time ESPECIALLY ON VIDEO GAMES. T.V. shows that are HD usually have their channel icons that move or are very dim and they won't hurt. Just go to what I told you and let it sit about 20 minutes, if that doesn't help, then the T.V. you have i believe comes with a 2-year standard warranty and if it's under warranty take it back if you have the reciept. If no reciept then call 1-800-SAMSUNG.

SOURCE: Similar problems to others - horizontal lines and

Is the fault on the screen forced top manifest when the screen is tapped? If it is then take the back off the tv with the power off and check that all leads are not loose and secured ok.Next check that the power supply usually mounted central, has no capacitor tops bulging with possibly brown leakage.If so, replace faulty capacitors or replace power supply. If all is visibly ok, remove the T-Con board which is mounted top centre of screen and clean LCd screen ribbons. Then remount t-con and test again..if fault is still present then it may be the backlight connections in the LCD screen loose and arcing causing video distortion.Hope this helpls :)

My led samsung tv has a horizontal line and the upper right corner shows a white vertical lines


Not good. You may have a tab failure. A repair shop may be able to diagnose and repair this, but most likely the lcd panel is broken. The panel is the most expensive part of flat tv's. A new panel will cost more than a used tv.

Kv-35xbr48 turns on fine nice picture then horizontal lines form distorting picture like interference also is the back hard to take off and put on needs a good vacum thanks for any suggestion


At first the picture is ok, and then distorted with horizontal lines i thinks. If the horzontal lines are parellel acros the screen, with an inch apart across the whole screen, your tv needs screen adjustments. Screen voltage may be high. look into the crt base also. Change it first. These also not resolve the problem, LOT may be faulty, with respect to screen focus pack. May need replacement. Try first setting screen voltage to a lower settings and observe.

It looks like the vidoe board but the fault can be also a distortion in the horizontal / vertical section. So check the PIN amp and related sections. What must be looked is of the HSTAT can be off set.
Deguass the set well to confirm if there is any possibility of a distortion of picture by a severe magnetic field.
Since there can many problems associated with a distorted picture but you can try and see these possibilites other than the Y amp processing. Hope my suggestions helps.

Distorted picture when looking through view finder or lcd screen


the video playback is sampled off the video out and independently processed sorta like a TV signal to project on the lcd screen.
horizontal lines means you lost sync circuit and needs troubleshooting. Hopefully maybe a bad connection with a ribbon cable for the ICs and components are hard to change and jammed tight. I would order a video board.

Green screen with almost horizontal zigzag lines


Is good that you hit it and it reacts,very likely you have loose conections in different places but for the distorted picture you need to check the horizontal driver transformer and flyback after that is corrected you need to check the complete chassis for loose conections.Take your time.Good luck.
