    Intermittent red stripe (about 1") on left side of screen with red "bleed through" in picture overall. Jiggling the HDMI cable made it disappear for a while. Called Samsung who tried directing me to Comcast. Comcast is awful. hooked another TV to Comcast HD box and did not have the problem. Called Samsung back and they believe it to be a power voltage related issue. Fortunately, I have extended warrranty from Best Buy and hope the will resolve.

I think you have dry solder joints on the tv. Either on the chroma board, the vertical scan board, the line output board, or on the focus board. If you are going to do this yourself please take all necessary precautions against electric shock and discharge all capacitors that you can as a stray spark from one can cause damage to your tv and yourself. If you are not able to do this find a competant technician. Good luck.
