Hi my LG 47ln5700 tv set has thin greyish black horizontal lineson one side of the .... I hope this works good with Samsung LCD as well....
1. Unplug unit from wall for 3 minutes; 2. Press & hold Power button for 1 minute; 3. Plug in unit. OR: 1. Unplug for 3 minutes. 2. Plug in unit. 3. HOLD Power Button as unit starts ... hold until the unit flickers on then off twice.
This effectively returns the components to factory specs, much like resetting a computer. It offers a *temporary* fix, lasting 45 minutes to hours. All depends on the unit.
Mom has an Insignia 32" with the same color separation problem, which worsens as the day progresses. Best results achieved while television is cold.
Dust in the unit could contribute to the problem ... try to keep the unit dust free as possible.
This television, appears to have had a failure in the mainboard. This
is the board that controls the video functions and sound functions. The
unit should be taken or sent in to a service center for testing and
servicing. The service center will have all the correct service
information to determine the problem for you. You can call Insignia
customer support at this telephone number 1-877-467-4289. You can also
got to the customer support website at www.insignia-products.com. Go to
the support section and ask them for help on how to get service for
your television. I hope this information helps you with your problem.
It could actually be quite a few things, loose wire, loose solder piece, bad crt's/picture tube, bad system board, or others. It's would have to be diagnosed with testing equipment. It will probably cost you another 150-200 for the new part to be put in.
Similar problem with an eleven and a half month old LT-40148. Approx. 1 inch vertical banding line on left side of screen on all inputs. After about two weeks, same problem on the right side of the screen.
Fortunately this occurred two weeks prior to the one year warranty expiring.
Called Mits customer service and they referred me to an authorized service center who I happened to have dealt with before.
They picked up the set. The front panel (LCD screen ) had to be replaced. Set was gone for two weeks as parts were not in stock. There was no charge. I hope this screen last more than a year.
I would take it back. I know from purchasing an Insignia LCD from them a while back, the TV just died after about 4 or 5 months. They ended up offering me another TV or with store credit. I took the store credit and chose another TV. I also did not have a warranty. I was told since it was Insignia (which is a Best Buy house brand) that replacing it was not a problem. Good luck.
Had Sony KDF-E50A10 that had the same line problems after 16 months. Was fine at lunch time and when got home from work and turned it on, they were the lines. Want over $800 to fix it. Told me it was the B-Board assembly. Sony was no help. They have exteneded the warrenty on another part that works along with the B-Board but not just the B-Board itself, so probably not any more Sonys. I'm going with LCD now.
