Question about Sceptre Televison & Video
Turned on and after 15 mins a vertical green line appeared and now it will not go away. Just got it as a Christmas present please help.
The edge ribbon connector may not be connecting (on the inside of the tv). Cure is foam strips between screen edge connecters and inside cover. Or, Memory chip (used to make the picture appear), may be bad. All flat panel tv's use a memory chip to make picture appear (it is digital after all). And if memory chips are bad, picture will have lines, jags etc. But it sounds like you have edge connecter problems. Place foam between inside cover and screen. TV may have been thrown around in shipment, and edge connecters came undone. They're very lightly soldered on some sets.

Unplug for 30 seconds from it's power source and then try it again. If that doesn't work, call Samsung for further troubleshooting and have your model number and serial number handy. Please be prepared to tell them how long the line is.

My 42" Samsung Plasma HDTV HP-R4252 has a 2" vertical strip of green pixels down the right side of the screen.
My 3 year warranty with Circuit City expires in Nov 2008.. so I hope I'm covered.. can't call until the morning.
Samsung said it might be a logic board problem.. but they want almost $2000 to fix. I might as well buy another TV if Circuit City can't fix it.

If the set is under an extended warranty get it serviced.
On rare occasions it may be the Plasma screen itself that is defective. In more than 90% of the cases it is a circuit board that has to be changed.
This can be an addressing problem to the screen. The failure can be in the screen addressing circuits or probably in the processor circuits. After or during the signal conversion to the data buss, there are many areas of the set that can actually cause missing pixels, lines, or ailiasing in the image.
The service tech will swap out boards to find the fault. Once he finds the defective board, he will quote you for a new board.

It sounds like an Intergrated Circuit (IC) has fried. Even on a good day, this is not something you can attack at home. As a tech (and as an owner of that model samsung), I'd need a map & tools to know what's going on. Your best bet in this situation is to contact Samsung and let them recommend an authorized service center in your area. Sorry I can't be of more help, but this is a rather serious problem.
