Question about Flat Panel Televisions

1 Answer

Samsun hdtv We've got veritcal green and purple lines that have been running on our samsung hdtv on and off for the past couple of weeks. Seems to do it more often than before,does it on hd channels and when we run a dvd. Have had Comcast ( our server) and the person who installed it by the house several times. No one seems to be able to fix the problem. We have surround sound installed in the house about 14 months ago. Seem if the wire is run from the tv, to cable box, surround sound box directly across the great room, these problems seem to go away for a short time. Do you think it could be the wiring or the TV?

    When I play DVDs on my new Samsung HD TV, they are much smaller and do not fill the screen well. What can I do to fix this? Will welcome any advice!!!

    I have same problem, but when I play with my xbox via the HDMI cable, I have a thin green line that runs along side the bottom of my tv, it is sometimes purple too.

Hi, I purchased the same model in November 2009. About 2 weeks ago a single horizontal line appeared. Each day another appeared until today when the video went out. Now it displays bands of vertical colored lines like a pastel colored rainbow. Did you find a solution to the problem?

The technician was correct.

This problem is generally considered to not be economically feasible to repair. Your best bet would be to shop for a new TV.

Good luck.

How do I get rid of purple and green wiggly lines? The black screen that appears when switching between channels was green a couple of weeks ago, that problem stopped after I unplugged the set for a while....


You have a bad LCD control board,It overheats and causes colored lines,screen to darken,or the color go floresent. Also check the power supply for bad caps.
when you have it apart.They usualy go bad on these tv's. It will cause the tv to take longer to come on.Or you have to hit the power button several times to get it on.

Green lines that extend across the screen vertically


If it looks like a veritcal pin stripe it most likely is a de-laimiation of the flex cable to the glass, this can only be fixed by replacing the pannel. If it is in warranty get it in right away.

Hdtv with purple lines


Since your set is a month old and in warranty, I suggest calling 1-800-Samsung and set up a repair appointment for a Samsung Field Engineer to come out and diagnosis the problem as the cause can be caused by a number of parts.

Purple and green strip/shadow around all the images and at the bottom


Either a bad optical block or possibly a bad LVDS cable, you need a qualified tech to know for sure
