SOURCE: Dark burn in? at top and bottom of screen. TV is only 16m old.

PixelProtector is a tool for fixing stuck pixels, removing screen burn, correctly calibrating screens for optimal performance and gaining the best possible picture. Any large screen television is an investment. Poor set-up and calibration can degrade the quality of a television's image and severely threaten the life of the screen.
If you own a large plasma or LCD television with a DVD player and want to achieve optimum performance, PixelProtector is highly recommended.

3 ways to remove burn-in
1. PixelProtector for Removing Screen Burn.
2. downloading a free program called JScreenFix
3.
Screen Burn Removal Using Your PC.
If you can hook your PC up to your screen burnt TV try this. Create a folder in 'My Documents' called 'Screen Burn'. I'm not joking keep reading. Now open up a picture editor like 'paint' available on all Windows PC's. When you run 'Paint' a blank white document is what you should have in front of you. That is exactly what you need. Select File – Save as and name your picture 'white'. Be sure to save it in the folder you just created.

Next you need to click on the 'black' section of the colour pallet at the bottom of the 'Paint' window. After you have selected black click on the 'Fill' icon (a tipped paint pot) on the left. Now simply click in the middle of your white picture and it should become totally black. Select File – Save as and name you picture 'black'. Again be sure to save it in the folder called 'Screen Burn'. You don't need paint any more so you can shut it down.

Now right click on the Windows desktop an select Properties – Screen Saver and using the drop down list select 'My Pictures Slide Show'. Now to configure the slide show. Click Settings and configure as follows. Slide the bar to 'More' so that pictures change frequently. Slide the next bar to 'Larger' so pictures fill the whole screen. Now click the 'browse' button and find the folder you made called 'Screen Burn'. In the next set of options:- Check 'Stretch Small Pictures', Un-check 'Show File Names', Check 'Use Screen Transitions' and finally un-check 'Allow Scrolling Through Pictures With The Keyboard'. Save the options.

Different versions of Windows might have slightly different configuration options but as long as the result is a completely filled (no borders), alternating white and black screen with no writing then it will probably help.

Now set your screen saver to 1 minute and leave the keyboard and mouse well alone.

As with the 'snow' and 'signal pattern' leave this for a while to see some results. If you use your TV for the PC then it might be a good idea to use this as your regular screen saver and run it frequently.

The only snag is the headache of connecting the PC up and the fact that removal technique will not be running at your screens native resolution.

Back - light problem. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis. http://electro-medical.blogspot.com/ To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced. To some models of sets, all these section circuit will be integrated at its main board. If this is the case, you have to replace the main board.

Half the screen isa dark, left side


Most likely you have a faulty LCD panel tabs. This can be verified sometimes by turning set on and tapping or squeezing the top left side of the TV. The only true fix is to replace the panel. I've been told that Samsung may offer to replace the panel or give you a discount on a new TV. Samsung is know to have LCD panels with premature tab failure. So it may be worth while to contact Samsung and see what they can do for you. There are videos on youtube that show case the problems and show you how to patch the problem. just type in "LCD panel tab" in the youtube search box.

Verticle lines on screen


This is a very easy fix. Your cable box is not grounded correctly. To fix this you need a AC Plug adapter. This will change your TV ac plug from a 3 wire to a 2 wire. This may sound funny, but trust me on this. I have fix a lot of TV in NY doing just this.24001fc.jpg
