Question about Samsung LN-R328W 32 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

1 Answer

Faint Horizontal Line

I have a 'barely noticeable' according to my GF line (took about 2 minutes to get here to see it) which appears on the screen across all sources about 2/3 of the way down. Its about 5-10 pixels tall and appears as darker than the rest of the image, its not dead pixels and looks antialiased top and bottom (the pixels are displaying OK, just slighly darker, <10% darker than lines above & below) - my first thought was that it was dust on the screen. How noticeable it is depends on the picture at the time, even when prominent it needs pointing out to others, but now I know its there its annoying the hell out of me! I've ruled out interference/rear connection probs. I've got a 10yr warranty on the TV, but I'd like to be able to say whats up before ringing since its not a really obvious fault. Thanks.

Your problem could be a bad LCD screen, and beleive me will get worse with age. It could be a Driver IC is not putting out the proper drive for that matrix of TFT. If you have a warranty, stand by your guns as its not right, so call and have the servicer make it right. Good Luck PS please do not forget to rate this thread.

I have seen this problem before. It is usually caused by a malfunctioning color wheel. Replacing it should resolve the problem. Let me know if you wish to fix it yourself so that I can find you a replacement.

57" Toshiba with wavy green/red lines "good overall picture"


Appears to be a convergence problem, the chips are located on large aluminum heat sinks. Check near the 2 or 3, STK IC's for + and - voltage usually 20 to 25vdc. If 1 or both are missing, check microfuses. They should both be close to equal in voltage reading, if not, turn set off after it has been on for 10 minutes, feel the heat sinks at each IC,if one is hotter than the other, replace both IC's or all 3 if it has them. Now check the small low ohmage resisters in and around the STK IC's and you will most likely find a few burnt or discolored and have changed in value, replace these or the new chips installed will self destruct.

Vertical, pencil-thin blue line appears after 10 minutes of viewing (any source)


I would suspect a connection breaking down as the set heats up. A shop will probably have to put the set in a stand to hold it while they check for loose connections or defective components inside. Not a DIY job by any means. If this line went completely through the picture either vertically or horizontally and stayed there then this would have indicated a failure in the Panel itself. A thin Line any where on the screen consisting of one pixel in width is a Panel Failure according to Hitachi.
