VERTICAL LINE ON SAMSUNG HLN617W WHEN USING ANALOG INPUTS OK WITH COMPOSITE INPUTS AND COMPUTER

I GET VERTICAL LINES ON SCREEN ABOUT 1 IN. APART WHEN USING THE ANTENA AND S-VIDEO AND RCA INPUTS. WHEN USING THE COMPOSITE AND COMPUTER INPUTS THE PICTURE IS FINE. THE TV IS A SAMSUNG HLN617W. IT WAS SUGESTED TO REPLACE THE DMD BOARD. THE BOARD COST APPROX 900 DOLLARS. IS THERE A PARTICULAR COMPONENT ON THE BOARD WHICH CAN BE REPLACED TO FIX THIS PROBLEM OR MAYBE THERE IS SOMETHING OTHER THAN THE DMD BOARD CAUSING THE PROBLEM? PLEASE HELP!

Nope, nope and nope... It's likely the DMD board and unless you have some SMT (surface mount technology) equipment just laying around you're not repairing that board too easily... You could however remove it and send it in to PTS for rebuild at about half the cost of a new replacement..

Samsung plasma tv has vertical lines


The most cost effective thing to do is just replace the TV. The cost to repair will be close to the cost of a new LED flat screen, they are very cheap now.

I have a DX-L26-10A that has problem with the A/V inputs. The picture is fuzzy. All the other inputs on the TV have a good picture. Both A/V1 and A/V2 are fuzzy.


AV1 and AV2 are Composite signals. What this means is that the Image signal and the Image color are combined into a single feed... or a composite or signal and color. Other than using CH3 from the cable box, this is the poorest performer in regards to signal quality. Additionally, the signal only has 480 lines of resolution and your TV has 720.

What all this means is that 480 lines of poor image quality are being blown up (think magnified) to fill 720 lines of resolution on the screen. What you end up with is a blurry image when compared to other inputs (ie: HDMI, COMPOSITE). The Dynex TV does not have some of the more advanced video processing of other manufactures. It will perform the image doubling, a bit of filtering, but not much more.

I suspect you TV is fine. A transition to an HD display can be shocking to some. After all, the VCR looked better on the old analog TV (not a joke, it did).


I hope this was helpful, best wishes.

Green Plaid then Vertical Lines, Failure of hard controls, Analog Board?


You are absolutely correct, When anyone complains of vertical lines or bars, the next step is to see if it happens on only digital inputs ( digital board ) , only analog inputs ( analog board ) , or both ( DMD board ) .

Analog board can be purchased at www.partstore.com ,

This looks like it could be a problem with leakage of the 60Hz vertical scan frequency into the picture this is also called 60Hz hum. What usually causes this is poor filtering on the power supply or decoupling capcitors in the vertical section have begun to malfunction. This problem is easy to fix if you have the equipment to isolate the problem, I would suggest that you take this set to a TV repair shop to have it analyzed and repaired.
