Question about Samsung LN-T4671F 46 in. LCD Television

Rainbow of vertical lines during startup

Hi. I just purchased a Samsung 4071. I hooked up the TV to a standard cable connection. As I turned it on for the first time, I got a still image with the screen filled with vertical lines of all colors. (see below). There was volume as if a channel was being received but the picture would not come on. I turned off the TV and turned it back on, and problem went away. This has now repeated multiple times. Does anyone have any experience with this? Thanks much.

I could be a tuner problem. But since the set is new, you should return it for replacement.

Hi I have a samsung plasma PN50C550G1F I havve right now 2 vertical lines that seem to change color with the background picture. Tv powers up fine sound work perfect.


Vertical lines on a plasma TV are caused by either a failing x-buffer board or a loose connection at the flex cable between the panel and the buffer board. Sometimes just removing the flex cable, cleaning it, snd reinstalling it will fix it.

My samsung tv will only show blue vertical lines. It also shows multicolored lines when i hook up anything 2 it. What would cause this> ?


Hello,

All Plasma and LCD TV have boards that control vertical and horizontal output to their respective areas. They are connected to the screen by ribbon cables. If one of these boards fails all together, has a failed chip, a bad connection, or a bad ground somewhere it will result in a black line in the area of that board. A bad ribbon cable connection on the bottom will result in a vertical black bar though the screen. Many times resetting the connection will fix it, if the ribbon cable has been nicked there could be a severed connection. They an sometimes be fixed, but it is a pain. An yes I have done it, but the bar is gone. The same will happen if the chip that outputs to that area opens. The connectors are the first place to look paying close attention to the cable, they are extremely delicate so great care must be taken, Good luck in solving the problem.....

I have a five month old Samsung LN32B360 LCD TV I just turned in on and the picture came on but it had a rainbow look and then the picture goes off with sound only?


When you say 'rainbow look', do you mean vertical coloured lines on the screen? If so, then you will have a faulty Tcon. Could you get a snapshot of the fault and post it on here please then we can identify the problem more easily.

Got black line in the middle of my 42 inch plasma screen


Perform the following tasks:
Determine if the "line" is an external cause or internal.
By external, it means a result of the interface, cabling or other boxes that are connected to the set.By internal, it means a defect within the hardware or software of the set itself.

Do find out you must disconnect everything but, say one video source. The best would be to unplug, pull everything from the back or front of the tv .By a process of elimination you should be able to convince yourself the source of the vertical line is external to the tv or internal to it.
Then, once you have decided that, you can attack the place that is most likely to be the source. For example, some of the early sets had some non-standard processors and had to be upgraged to the new standard after they were purchased by the consumer. It had to do with the HD and HDMI interface connections, but could have effected other stuff. Also, some S video inputs have glitches in them.
