Tab Bonding Issue. I too have had this problem with the very same model, it is most often improperly diagnosed as a t-con board issue by most who just want to provide an answer for the sake of there own ego at various forums. This is a manufacturing defect. I have been dealing with Samsung for over a month now and have been offered a replacement model of lesser quality(LN40C650L1F) at a prorated cost of $300.00 to me which I have not accepted as of yet. My TV began having this issue almost exactly 1 year beyond warranty period. Typically it will only happen when TV is cold(if temp in room falls to approx. 68 deg or lower). When cold due to naturally occurring shrinkage as with anything, the tab bonding contacts to the screen are broken and therefore gives you 3 thin horizontal lines across separating the screen into four quadrants vertically and blurry details of everything including channel info, menu info, etc. It goes away after several minutes of warm up time, as the unit warms up expansion of the panel resumes and contact through the defective tab bond is made and picture is back to normal. A quick test to determine this is if you gently squeeze the bezel(frame) around the panel at the top left corner approx. 2 to 4 inches from the corner(this is where the defective tab is located for this particular problem) the problem will go away until the unit is turned off and has ample time to cool off again. When you squeeze you are effectively forcing the tab bonding back together and contact again is made. Another way to diagnose would be to turn your thermostat in house up above 72 degrees or so and wait a few hours for the TV to acclimate to the temp(expand) .This is why if left alone for a few minutes to warm up the problem disappears. Consequently people who keep there homes on the warm side, say above 70 deg. don't often see this problem, but the more heat-cool cycles the units go through the more likely this problem will rear up its ugly head.I believe this defect will pop up eventually on all samsungs produced with the same tab bonding method or materials that were used for however long they were manufactured that way. Naturally everything moves(expands and contracts) through heat-cool cycles but proper engineering methods or materials should prevent something like this from happening for at least, lets say 10 years, the average life expectancy one would expect to get out of a $1500.00 or more purchase depending on screen size. Common sense would dictate larger screens would be more prone to this problem due to more movement and smaller less prone. Unfortunately there are numerous tab bonds all across the top of the screen(panel) and different ones affect different functions of the operation of the set, therefore there may be many other various problems people may be experiencing with there samsungs due to a failure of one of these tab bonds. They are often erroneously diagnosed as circuit board failures due to laziness on the part of the tech. I would recommend to anyone experiencing intermittent or any problems to gently squeeze all along the top of the bezel to locate a defective tab bond. As for dealing with Samsung, all I can say is good luck, it is difficult to reach their corporate office and even more difficult to get a resolution. I would gladly join in any class action lawsuit if brought about as the one regarding their capacitor issue disappeared once they sought to start addressing the issue and this was only after an absurd amount of complaints to the NJ BBB and consumer affairs websites. I think they realize that they have a huge problem with most models manufactured in the last 3-4 years(primarily due to using cheaper components as a cost reduction/profit boosting solution) and as with any large corp., are not willing to issue any recall as it is cheaper to just deal with angry customers on a case by case basis, very unfortunate for them as their sales will suffer terribly because most people research on the web before making major purchases in today,s world and thank god for that.

SOURCE: Colored "snow" vertical line an inch thick on Samsung plasma

That is the sustain and buffer boards. Try to find a repair shop to repair on the component/board level because the cost of new boards out weighs the replacement cost.

By thin line I assume its one pixel in width. A single pixel wide line is an indicator of a defective panel.

Vertical lines on screen kinda pixelated


Just check this link. You can see similar type of fault to LCD TVs. Compare them to that of your TVs and make sure. It sounds that the LVDS cable has loose contact with its connection sockets. Re-seat it once, and check.http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Pull up previous posts there, either by its left side bar, or view it in Timeslide option.

Black line half way down the center of the screen,about 1.5 inche


There's a 'data control' and/or 'address' problem that's developed. Pixels depend on voltage, control, and data coming too their designated address.

A digital circuit feature called a 'DATA_ADDRESS_ BUS" are responsible for 3 criteria: Delivering voltage, control, and data to each pixel in less than a second.

1) If voltage fails the pixels don't light up. They appear black in color (their 'off 'state)....numerous pixels that don't light up look like a black line. But their actually individual pixels with no voltage.

2) If control fails then all pixels are white in color (their 'on' state). Without control the pixels can't adjust properly to high or low 'state', meaning brightness and dimness. This looks like a white line vertically on the screen.

3) If data fails then the pixels can't adjust to the proper color at the proper time.
This appears as a line that changes color out of sync with the entire picture.


Have a technician look at the pixel address registry circuits. As well as control and linear circuits....the problem is somewhere in there!

My Ibm Laptop r51 has a vertical lines on the screen


The lines appearing on your LCD means it has a defect on the screen.

There are 3 types of pixel defect
1) dead pixel - pixel is always off
2) stuck pixel - pixel is always on
3) hot pixel - pixel is on but in red, green, blue or yellow, can also be a light black color

You can try to fix stuck or hot pixels but dead is dead.
1st method, flashing different colors rapidly:
JSScreenfix.com has a great tool. This is their free java applet or you can download it below.

2nd method, applying pressure to pixel:
Damp paper towel, Small stylus or dull pencil.

3rd method, tapping the pixel:
Pen with cover on or another small, blunt object.


If your laptop is still under warranty, get it replaced. If not you are looking at the most expensive part in a laptop to get replaced. (LCD screens on laptop is roughly equivalent to 40-60% of the total laptop cost

Please rate this if it this helps.
