Re: I turn it on, everything can be read and functions...

It's either the main or digital board - - - do not walk run back to where you bought it and get a refund... Then buy an upper end unit with one of the major brands... It will cost a bit more but you'll be MUCH happier...

Have samsung un55c9000zfxa led tv with horizontal lines across screen can it be fixed?

It's either the control board or the display itself.
You'll have to find a TV repair company. They won't be able to tell you for sure until they test it, and they may charge you to test it. The control board should be a cost effective fix, the display won't be.

Unless you're trained in Electronics, don't open up the unit and try to fix it yourself, there are hazardous voltages even when the TV is unplugged!
