Question about Samsung LN32A550 32 in. LCD TV

1 Answer

I have a Samsung LN32A550 LCD TV. When I turn on my TV, there is a dark rectangular strip 3 1/2 inch in width on the left side of the screen. It is not that obvious, but noticeable. The strip does not go away. What should I do.

One thing you can try IF you know how to work with electronics.
Unplug and remove back cover. Remove the metal cover on the LCD Controller card. (it near the top of set) You may have to disconnect the top of the "H" frame to get to it. Disconnect and carefully re-connect the flat ribbon cable for the left side of the display. (The right side is good so don't touch it.) The connector for the flat ribbons will flip up to release the ribbon. The ribbon is short so this is tricky to do right. You may need a small plastic tool to help. Dont' break the connector. With the card back in place check if the band is still present. If vertical lines appear on the display, unplug and reposition the cable again until they are gone.
Don't touch the contacts on the connectors.
Re-assemble the set. No parts should be left over !!
LCD Controllers for this set are for sale on eBay if need.

Samsung 52 Inch LCD 120hz. 3 inch wide vertical line on screen


This is a problem with the LCD panel. If the tv is out of warranty, I would call Samsung and see if they will pay for the panel and you pay for the labor. The panel is not cost effective to repair. If Samsung will not do anything you will need to buy a new tv.
