There are at least two issues here. First you have bad buffer boards. Second Very possibly a bad X-Main bd and P-Logic bds. Have a trained Samsung tech troubleshoot the set.

Hi, Depeending on the thickness of the lines matters. If the lines are Black and about 1-2 inches thick it may be a bad bottom buffer board or a bad panel (screen).
If the lines are thin 1/16 to 1/8 inch it is most likely a bad panel.
You can open up the set and depending on the model, see the thin board/boards running across the bottom with ribbon cables going to the panel. You may be able to attempt reseating the ribbon cables, but be careful as some retainer plugs break very easy.
If the lines are thick black and the reseating doesn't correct it you may be able to buy the coresponding buffer. Unfortunately some bottom buffers are actually part of the panel. If you are not comfortable taking it apart then call a professional but be aware labor charges start around $200 not counting parts, panels start at $600 up to over $1000
hope this helps
Thanks
Eric

How to reset nokia mobiles life timer to ''0''


Nokia life timer is a counter that keeps track of the Total call time of your phone. It will show how much the phone has been used, and it?s the best thing to check if you?re planning to buy a used Nokia Mobile.
To see the Total Call Time or the life timer counter, On the standby screen type the following code *#92702689# (Easy way to remember this is ? *#war0anty#). And it will pop up a message that shows the life timer in hours and minutes.

Here is a detailed procedure to make this life timer zero.


REQUIREMENTS:
The following files are required to reset the life timer:
  1. Nemesis service suite link: Download from Here
  2. lifetimer.pm file: Download Here
PROCEDURE:
1. Download and Extract the lifetimer.pm file, and Download Nemesis Service Suite.

2. Install Nemesis Service Suite on your Computer, It won?t take much time.(select the first option)

3. Install Nokia Cable Drivers (No need to install, if you have Nokia PC Suite already installed)

4. Connect The Phone in ?PC Suite? Mode to the PC

5. Open Nemesis Service Software

6. Click on ?Scan for new Device? Button on Top right Corner 



7. It Will take a few seconds to scan, and it will load up the software interface after communicating with the Phone.

8. Click the ?Phone Info? Button.


9. On the Bottom, Select and open the ?Permanent Memory? Tab, which is next to the Fbus info.


10. Click the ?Write? button on Below right, and open the Extracted lifetimer.pm file on your PC. 


11. After the lifetimer.pm file is opened , it will immediately start writing it to the Phone?s EEPROM Area.




12. The Procedure will end when the progress bar reaches 20%. This is normal , and on the bottom right side, it will display its done.

13. Unplug the Phone, and Restart it.

14. After boot up, Check the life timer .


Note: This method has been tested on following devices: Nokia 6630, 6670, 6680, 5500 sport, 5700XM, 6110 Navigator, 6120 Classic, N70, N72, N73,N76, E50, E51, E61i, E65, N80, N91, N95, N95 8GB, 5800XM Mobile devices. If you want to try it on other S60v3 or S60v5 mobiles, do it at your own risk.


Caution:
  • Power Failure During Writing will cause damage to the Phone, And there is a chance that it might brick the phone as well.
  • Loose, worn out Data Cables Might fail the Writing process, and there are chances of damage to the EEPROM area of the phone.
  • Do not attempt this with phones that are not included in the confirmed list.

Hi I have a samsung plasma PN50C550G1F I havve right now 2 vertical lines that seem to change color with the background picture. Tv powers up fine sound work perfect.


Vertical lines on a plasma TV are caused by either a failing x-buffer board or a loose connection at the flex cable between the panel and the buffer board. Sometimes just removing the flex cable, cleaning it, snd reinstalling it will fix it.

Blue vertical line thru picture


It is called "Thin vertical lines" and change colors depending on the background color.
It is fixable but there are several components that can show this sympton.

You will need a tech to fix it in order to save money (because you do not want to buy a board you dont know if will fix it).
Possible Solutions:
Replace Timer Control Board, if it is not fixed
Replace Sustain Board.

One of those boards needs to be replaced and I wrote the most likely first.

Vertical portion pixelats then forms solid vertical lines. Problem intermitent but persistant. The tv is 2 years old, if its the lcd panel is it worth repairing? I think I have the same problem with a...


Note
In some cases, there are minor defects in some parts of the screen. Points that do not light, points with
brightness different from that of the periphery, or points with color different from that of the periphery.
Some pixels will always be on or always off. Please note that this is not a malfunction. So what this says is that it's not the Plasma Cell problem, its more like a bad board inside. You will need more info like schematic and find out which area the bad part is in.
