The dark side of the screen causes of the lamp alignment or prism glass alignment. This is critical you have to consult your LG technician to do this. But if you have any background o repair consult the service manual. Please careful not to touch the prism quarts so that you maintained the clarity of picture and brightness on the screen.

Dark shadow

Uh Oh! Your light engine is warping a little from overheating and is distorting the picture. It usually means replacing the light engine.

My suggestion to you is to get on the phone with Samsung and start complaining, then keep complaining until they agree to pay for it. You may have to get the problem diagnosed by a pro before they agree to pay for it though.
Hope ya fix it!

I have a samsung HLR6156WX. Bought it new 5 yrs ago gets very very little use (guest area). Turned it off and now it wont come back on. Ive read different post about slappint the left side after leaving it...

amount of use does not counter the fact the tv was 5 years old. a blub not used for 5 years can still burn out just like any other bulb. the only thing you can do is get it replaced.
