Question about Televison & Video

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?

    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.

You will most likely need what is called a scan converter/scaler. It will convert your source signal to the desired signal for you. You can find these online.

This is along shot but you may have picked up a virus a few months ago, do a full system scan, also download malwarebytes anti-malware and do a full scan, if nothing shows up consider a full windows operational install, I have found in some cases it fixes the video problem.

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?

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.

Screen has major digital ditortion (green lines, heavy contrast)


Personally i haven't had this problem but it seems to be that it's either the video board or the dmd board.. if you select the service menu and it looks like the rest of the screen, it's the videpo board, if not it's the dmd board
