Scrolling line My samsung also has the same problem. But we had the same issue with another flat screen. I thought if I purchased an HD cable box that it would fix the problem but no luck. I am not currently using a HDMI cable though.

Question. Are the scrolling lines horizontal?
If so that is called 60 cycle Hum Bar and is a result of the following:
1. Bad grounding of the cable system.
2.Bad cable box. This a common problem with cable boxes.
3.If you are using Component cables from the cable box to the tv then the Component cables might be bad. Try using another set of Component cables. If that does not work then you need to call the Cable co. to come out and check their system and make sure that the cable tech brings out another cable box to try out. There is no problem with the set.

Hi Suzette my name is Roety,
I can help you with your issue ,
First of all make sure you have an HD signal connected.
These days using a non HD box will produce a bad picture on an HD TV.
If using a cable/Dish box set the output resolution to 1081i only,
for picture controls set them all center and max out the picture/contrast control

Cannot set screen width


Both the TV and the Cable box have Aspect(height/width) settings. You must confirme the setting on the cable box and then do the TV.

1. Set TV to Native, this should show image exactly as the cable box sends it.
2. change Aspect settings on the cable box until you get one that works
3. if you get a good one, then your OK. You will just need to find a setting between the 2 devices that work for you. Also, these settings may change automatically for the TV or cable box based on the channel

Horizontal Lines scrolling on screen


I had a similar issue with my Mitsubishi HD 1080. My power supply went out, I had it replaced and it works like new. However, just today I had AT&T U-Verse installed. When the cable guy was showing me the new HD channels all seemed good. This evening (about 5 hours after being installed) I started seeing these horizontal lines across my screen. The picture was still HD quality, but those annoying lines just wouldn't go away. Anyway, after reading a few blogs on-line suggesting interference or bad grounding, it hit me!!! The AT&T guy who installed my U-Verse (cable, internet and phone) had set the modem on top of my TV!!! It was just starring at me this whole time. So I removed the modem off the top of my TV and put it on a side table just to see what would happen and sure enough the lines were gone!!! You may not have the exact same problem, but it may be some type of interference (cell phone, modem, etc, either on top or around your TV that is causing the issue... Hope this helps. Thanks.

Picture issues


Greetings caesar975,

Unfortunately if you chose to view the non HD channels in wide screen format, you are going to have the top and bottom of the screen cut off. Eventually this will not be a problem when everything goes to digital. However presently non HD channels are presented in 3:2 ratio where as HD is 16:9, So your choice really is to view them with the lines on either side for now.

I do not have an answer for the white flickering lines.

To get the BEST picture out of your 1080p unit I highly recommend using HDMI cables to hook it up.

I hope some of this helps.

Sincerely,

Dorothy

Vertival Color Lines


We had the same thing happen to us on the right-hand side. A technician told us yesterday that the Motorola Cable Box (supplied by Shaw Cable) places a border on Non-True HD Channels. Because we didn't place our picture setting to 'full-screen' each time we viewed these channels and burn line was created. He gestimated a replacement screen runs about $800.00 Canadian, but we have a 3 year extended warranty and will receive a new TV. He also said it happens on all big screen tv's that use a cable box creating borders on Non-True HD Channels.
