My led samsung tv has a horizontal line and the upper right corner shows a white vertical lines


Not good. You may have a tab failure. A repair shop may be able to diagnose and repair this, but most likely the lcd panel is broken. The panel is the most expensive part of flat tv's. A new panel will cost more than a used tv.

My picture is doubled on my toshiba TN50V71 as if there is a shadow behind everything? Please help!


hi, sounds like a convergence issue. try this...
  • Look through your manual. Your manual will always give you the most specific directions for your particular model. Look for an "adjusting convergence" or "set manual convergence" section.

  • Enter the menu on your TV. Use the remote control and bring up the menu.
  • Choose "Convergence." This may be under "Picture Settings," "Function" or "Advanced Options."
  • Select a color. You will have red, green and blue to choose from. Do each one, starting with red.
  • Press "Enter." A crosshair pattern will appear on your screen.
  • Adjust vertically. If there is a horizontal red line visible, press the up or down arrow keys (or channel up or down) to adjust the convergence until the line is superimposed on the horizontal-center line of the white crosshair.
  • Adjust horizontally. If there is a vertical red line visible, press left or right (or volume up or down) to adjust horizontally. Do this until the line is superimposed on the vertical line of the white crosshair.
  • Save settings. It is important to save your settings when you are done, instead of simply exiting the menu.
  • Repeat these steps for all colors.
    good luck!

    White horizontal lines on top of the screen otherwise picture OK.


    This is a symptom of what is generally a leaky or open filter capacitor in the vertical sweep circuit. Vertical foldover, where the image actually is reflected upside down an inch or so into the top of the picture, is common in this problem. There is an IC that controls the signal and sometimes it needs to be replaced, but more often it's one of the filter capacitors nearby. Any competent technician can fix this problem and the capacitors only cost $2-3 or so if you can find the correct value at Radio Shack (that's if you pay full retail for them). A good service tech will probably have these on hand. Testing them is easiest with what's called an ESR meter (stands for Equivalent Series Resistance) and the better ones don't require you to unsolder them from the circuit board before testing. The most expensive part of this repair is going to be the technician's labor. They're good TV's, this is just a problem common to most TV's in general - mostly due to aging of the capacitors from years of heat. A higher quality replacement capacitor will solve the problem for the life of the set.

    Hi I had the same problem. Broken white lines across the top of the screen. This is called overscan. You need to go into the Setup menu, other settings. 16:9 overscan needs to be on. Hope this helps.It solved our problem.
