Re: Horizontal flickering lines in a samsung 32 LCD HDTV

Get the professional, although this won't be an expensive fix... You likely have one or more caps in the vertical circuit that are going bad... A cap acts like a battery in a circuit taking on voltage and releasing it at an even rate. When they go bad their ESR (equivilent series resistance) rises and the cap takes longer to reach it's op temp and work properly...
A tech with an ESR meter will easily find and repair this one...
no other issues only a minor problem..
Press the ‘menu’ button on the Remote Control

  • Select ‘CONNECTIONS’
  • Select HDMI 1, 2 or 3 depending on the input you have connected the PC
  • Select ‘PC’
    But if your product is still under warranty, better contact your dealer and get the issue fixed
