Question about Samsung LE40R73BD 40 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

2 Answers

My Samsung LCD TV has developed 2 Green vertical lines that go from the top to the bottom of the screen and seem to be getting slowly wider as time goes on. The lines appeared after the 12 months warranty elapsed and the TV is now 2 years old. Is there any way I can get rid of these lines as on certain pictures, the lines are very obvious, especially on white backgrounds?

Some thing is wrong whit your antenna/cable wires if you don't see any of those symptoms when you
play a DVD movie that will confirm that is not your TV .
first tray checking all cables for loose fittings.
If you are on cable or satellite call customer service and get then to rewire your TV

Those symptoms you describe happen when you have a bad Coaxial cable more common
whit hose people buy pre-made cables at stores.

Radio frequencies from the air get in to the cable and get mixed whit you cable broadcast signal.

Hi have a samsung 42 inch plasma, all of a sudden it has a band 20cm wide of dotted lines going across the whole screen, some channels or when playstation in use the band gets wider, does not seem to...


if the band is horizontal your tv has bad y-buffer board. Usually there are 2 buffer boards- top and bottom. if the problem is in the top half of the screen replace the top board, otherwise replace bottom board.
but better to replace both a the same time.

if the tv has a vertical lines from top to bottom it may have bad plasma panel and can be considered as not economical to repair.

Vertical red lines on screen


LCD correct?

There are 2 types of lines they may be showing, both requiring the replacement of the LCD Panel.

1. Delamination Lines- they are usually multiple vertical lines that do NOT flow from the top to bottom of the screen. Looks look water dripped down or something similar

2. Single/Multiple Vertical lines - This is normally 1 or maybe a few solid vertical lines that travel from Top to bottom. I belive in some cases they may only travel to the screen center.

In both cases, this will always show when the TV is ON. Even if there is no signal being input to the TV. There are other possibilities but these can be the most common. Both require a new panel.
