    Similar problem. My screen just shows a white bar and then the rest of the screen is purple. You can change the channels and the sound changes but same purple bars. I've owned it for about 1 1/2 years. How much should this cost to fix? I would have expected better from Samsung. Model: S409D

    I think i have the same problem with a Samsung LE37R88BD that i bought 14 months ago, Purple splodges seem to appear in and around bright parts of the screen, all faces and especially foreheads seem to have a shine to them now. I turned down the brightness and fiddled with some options that has helped alot with the picture, but i can still see the problem, very annoying, have just gone past 1 year warranty as well. If this tv had a tube, i would swear it was on its way out with the symptoms i am getting. Does anyone know if this would be an expensive fix ?, i think i will buy all LG from now on, a LCD TV should not die this quickly, Should it ?

Unfortunatly This is a manafuctaurer defect. your panel is bad and will need to be replaced by a technician. I know it isnt want you wanted to hear but the F modelf year for samsung is very bad for this. beinf the 61F, 65F, and the 71F. Hopefully you are in the return policy still for the TV

Blurry, purple bar across middle of plasma tv screen


Plasma screens are extremely susceptible to getting broken from any impacts to the face of the screen. What you are describing sound very much like distorted or dead pixels. It may not be a fixable issue, you may have to replace the entire unit or live with the purple bar. The reason you don't notice it as much when the screen is dark is because purple is on the darker end of the spectrum, and will be most visible in contrast to lighter ad brighter colors.

Samsung 32" LED TV Purple Line Horizontally across top of screen


Can you please change the input device to some other you know, works? If you do not notice any problem there, look for the aerial cable going close to any power line or has interference from some other transmissions of any kind nearby.

Horizontal bar of green tint the moves from bottom to top of screen


This may be a power supply fault, and what you are probably seeing is some switching noise breaking in through the display processor, or possibly the input processor. Because of the fact that the bar is moving, this means that the sequence is not locked to the main processors.

You should contact the place where you bought the set and speak to someone about an exchange. A one day old set should be exchanged right away, and I would argue that fact.

I don't want to mention any name brands, but I would have gone for a company that also manufactures TV broadcast and industrial TV equipment rather than one that manufactures appliances.
