Question about Samsung TX-R3079 Television

1 Answer

My 3 yr old tv has developed lines in the picture.

Lines are sometimes wavy and sometimes straight (1/4'' apart. Happens whether connected to cable or not and when playing dvd. Can't find any adjustment. Is this just one of those unfortunate things and I need to buy a new TV? When the cable box is turned off but the TV still has power, the lines are purple. When the lines are horizontal they appear to be black.
Thanks for your help.

How do I fix wavy lines on Hauppauge Wintv hvr950q?


Are they wavy lines throughout the picture or are they just wavy on the side? Waving picture is usually caused by poor power supply filtering. Wavy lines throughout the picture are caused by interference. Try moving the device away from the computer with an extension USB cable it may be picking up interference from the surrounding electronic devices. It could also be defective.

Mitsubishi rearTV has intermittent wavy lines running throughout


Do you have anything to test it in 1080i? Does it do it on all connections or just one? I had a similar problem with my TV that turned out to be a bad input board. Mine would only display 1080i through the Component connections. All others would show pink and green wavy lines. It cost me around 500 to fix it. Unplug the TV. Remove the back cover for the TV. Using a NON-metal object, or gloves, wiggle the input board (that has all the video connections on it) slowly back and forth and see if the problem comes and goes. You will have to have someone watching for you. If something is loose on that board, the problem should show itself. Narrowing down the problem will probably save you money on repair bills.

DVD picture is crystal clear, but wavy lines when using cable. Connected a different tv to same cable and picture is fine. internal coby tv to cable connection must be bad?


you can get a standard RF (cable) male connector to AV (the yellow,white and red colored) adapter at radio shack for a few bucks...if it is a internal connection, that will bypass it...you will just be watching cable on AV-1 or wherever you plug it in

A problem like yours is NORMALLY NOT the TV set's fault....it's the Cable.

I'll bet you see thin lines moving across the entire picture...they are slanted like this >> \ \ \ \
That's generally caused by a bad ground on the antenna cable OR it can be the cable box's MODULATOR.

Try using your VIDEO OUTPUT off of your Cable box and see if the wavy lines are still present. If they are the Cable box needs swapped with a good unit.

You can also verify this problem by checking your TV with a DVD player...no lines indicate the TV is fine.

If you have problems with the DVD player's picture, then you must have dried out filtering capacitors on the Video board IN the TV set...

And THAT is not an easy fix if you do see lines with your DVD player.
