We bought our TV just about 2 years ago and it has worked perfectly until the last two days. A yellow line has developed across about a fourth of the way across the top of the screen starting from the left upper corner. Any idea what it could be? We just had a HiDef receiver upgrade last week too.
Try doing a system reset. Not sure it that's the term they use but that option basically resets the tv to factory default settings. It's in the menu somewhere. I've done the reset twice already for a similar problem. Solved it each time.

The machine is still under warranty from samsung so I would call 1-800-samsung to find the nearest service center. Problem could be caused by a bad main board, bad lvds cable or a defective t/con board or lcd panel.
Had this same issue on right side of 52" about 1 inch from side but had 3 vertical lines that disappeared after 40 minutes. Have Samsung LNT5265FX/XXA and about 16 months old. LCD Panel itself had to be replaced to fix it, fortunately had extended service plan
We have aKDF-E42A10 for a bout 2 yearsnow and we now have 13 horizonal lines across the screen, they look like small square dotted lines across the entire screen from top to bottom. It be gan acouple of months ago as 2 of these lines that seemed to move up the screen. I called technical support and he made it sound like he never heard of the problem. I am very upset with sony right now. Anybody know how to fix the problem?ricedog
first make sure its not an input problem or from an external source.Disconnect all inputs and see if lines are present with no inputs to tv.if lines affect menu and or ON SCREEN DISPAY (top) there is a good chance (SSB) board could be bad .I would start with this board first ,lvds cable (second) and last the logic board (comes only with new LCD)
