When the tv has been on awhile

When the tv has been on a while dark areas start appearing across the middle of the screen like large ink smudges or shadows, they are not a regular shape and are approx 2 to 3 inches vertical by 6 inches horizontal. the screen is clear when tv is first turned on.

Do the smudges move around or are they in the same position all the time??If they appear in the same position it sounds like you are having a problem with the invertor panel or the back light circuitry.If you could post photo of fault would be helpfull

Was told by a repair guy that the smudges are from a defective optics unit. The price tag for a new part was $1900.00. Looking for a second opinion though, I dont fully trust this guy

Samsung Smart TV UN55JS850DFXZA TH01. Why is there darkness in the middle area of the screen and two large vertical lines on the right side?

I would guess the dark areas are from bad lamp strips, the vertical lines could be a bad t-con board or a bad panel but the 2 most likely are not connected

How to Put on Eye Shadow

Achieving Smoky Eyes.If you're looking for a way to play up your eye color, go smoky. A smoky effect makes eye color pop and creates a dramatic evening look. Read on to learn how to create a flawless smoky eye. <br /><br />Create a smooth canvas for eye makeup. First, you'll want to apply a primer to your entire face, including the eye area. Then apply a concealer to get rid of redness and dark circles. Finish off by applying a moisturizing foundation to create a flawless canvas. <br /><br />Apply eyeliner. Use a black liner and draw a line across the upper lash line. When you get to the middle of the eye, make the line a little bit thicker. Choose a lighter-colored eyeliner and line the bottom of your eye. Smudge the liner with your finger to create a smoky appearance. <br /><br />Apply two colors of eye shadow. In order to select the right products, check out eye shadow reviews. You'll want a color palette that has both a light and a dark color, such as L'Oreal Paris HiP Concentrated Shadow Duo. Use the lighter color as a base and blend the color all over your upper lid. Then, apply the dark eye shadow, starting at the lash line and blending upward.

Unwanted rectangular black area appears on screen blocking 40% of picture

This could be the result of a partly shorted vertical winding on the deflection yoak.Since the line is on an angle and not straight across.

Smudge looking marks onscreen

If you suddenly noticed it, this is most likely caused by a large piece of dust on the lens. It is hard to clean, you would need to take the whole TV apart in order to get to the lens (mounted on the optical block).

It could also be caused by a failure of the optical block, which had inherent issues. There is a pending class action law suit against Sony for problems with optical block that include smudges, hazes, and tints that appear after a certain number of hours.

Other causes could be a dirty portion of the mirror or a smudge on the inside part of the screen but these are rare because dust and contaminants do not usually accumulate on these parts of the TV.
