    Two or three dark vertical lines - typically show up on sky scenes.
    TV is 2 years old and lines appear to be getting darker with age

    Well I've had this TV for a little over 2 years now. I've been watching TV in 4:3 because it looks strange stretched out in full wide screen. So a few weeks ago I noticed a slight black line down where the 4:3 black part starts to divide TV from the black screen. I payed no attention to it, really figuring it would go away. Well...
    weeks later and it has grown. A LOT. I got some advice to watch the TV in full screen and change the brightness on the TV. I've been letting the TV run for days in fullscreen and it still won't go away. It's getting worse. My warranty has run out on the TV and I'm not sure what to do. 
    I tried a full reset on the TV but still, nothing.  I can't stand it.

If under warranty then of course use that.
This is a display problem. One solution someone knowledgeable in electronics can try.
This problem can be caused by a bad connection fitting of the flat cables on LCD controller board. Dis-connect the flat cables from the LCD controller(T-CON) and carefully reconnect them. Try the unit before reassembling the back cover. You may have to disconnect/reconnect several times to show improvements if this is the problem.

I have the same vertical line on the right side of the 4:3 screen. Very annoying, It has faded over time, but now I have hashed, white horizontal lines. The hight the resolution the more lines you get.

Has anyone experienced this - and is there a known replacement part that fixes this???

Its a circuit board problem. Had one vertical line coming from top middle to center screen 1-2" wide. Turned out to be a board. Cost 300 to fix ( 6 mo. out of warranty). Worked fine until the lower board went bad and now I have a 4" line coming up from the bottom. Not worth fixing with the price of tv's today.

There is no solution for this problem. I bought a tv and had the vertical bars show up when watching american football. I took it back and exchangedit. I hooked it up and didn't notice the problem until a year later.

Thats how they make televisions now. They all have they're problems sooner or later.

I too have a Samsung LCD TV with black vertical lines across the screen that are very noticeable when the picture background becomes lighter. Unfortunately I think the only solution to fixing it is sending it back to the company and of course all this has happened after the warranty expired! But if anyone else has any solutions please post them

I have a Samsung LCD HDTV model LNS2651DX/XAA and I also have 1 vertical stationary dark line on the right side of the Tv. It goes from the top all the way to the bottom. Looks like its just 1 or 2 pixels wide, and hard to see if there is a moving picture. But when the picture is stationary, it is noticable. If anyone knows a solution please post.

No solution found as of yet. i just returned it for the cash, next time i'll do more than just product reviews and look for known faults. sucks because its a nice unit otherwise.

White arched lines appearing on dark/black screens.

it sounds like you are seeing the vertical retrace for all three colors together (white). Its possible that all three screen adjustments (red, green, blue) are off, but I suspect a problem with the screen power supply.
there is also a recall on this set
