Green lines on LED TV.

by danielvaughn / March 11, 2011 4:35 AM PST

I just bought a Samsung LED LCD TV (UN46C6500), and it's great except for one issue. When playing movies in anamorphic widescreen (bars on top and bottom), the screen flashes a horizontal green line across the bottom of the screen randomly and annoyingly (often during quick camera panning). It's not an issue with cables, as I play them from a USB flash drive I plug into the back of the screen. Is anybody else experiencing a similar issue with Samsung LEDs?

danielvaughn,

I'm sorry to hear that you're having this issue with your TV. I'm curious to know if this is happening with any other inputs other than the USB flash drive.

I wonder if the encoded movie files might have anything to do with this. Unfortunately, I've no way of diagnosing the symptom.

I have some sort of device plugged in to just about all of the inputs on my TV. A PS3, an up-converting DVD player (unnecessary but I play the audio through the surround sound part of it), I use the DLNA from my computers (mac and windows) to watch movies, and have a Nintendo Wii hooked up to it. ALL of these options when watching a movie though the TV, when it is in anamorphic view, has the green line at the bottom of the screen. I frequently check for updates but none have fixed the issue thus far. If you have any idea of how to fix this I would love to know.
Model Number UN46C6500 (same as the op)

I Have the same problem with my model. I purchased it last november, noticed the issue once when playing a bluray disc. (in the bottom margin). When i rewound the the bluray to the same position it occurred at the same exact time, each time i rewound. So naturally I thought it was the bluray disc. I have streamed netflix through the tv and through my ps3 (bluray player). A number of titles and other blurays or regular DVD's do it. Often when there are explosions or fire on the screen, but at other times too. I have no fix for it. I have played the blurays on my other ps3, on another LCD, and there is no problem with the flicker. No solution I have seen out there yet...

switch the auto motion to clear or standard and it will go away but then the picture will be blurry when watching high action movies, needs to be addressed by a firmware update, call samsung and tell them, and they will try to tell you it's not the tv. but it is the TV because i have the exact model you have.
