Question about Samsung Touch of Color LN52A650 52 in. LCD HDTV
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

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.

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 :)
