Samsung hd lcd tv has dark vertical bar on screen

by Sokitume00 / January 23, 2013 8:09 AM PST

My Samsung LN46c600F3FXZA has a distinct dark bar about 1/6th the area of screen. You can still clearly see the image, but everything within the area is darker.

I doctored a stock image of my tv to simulate how it looks.

any clues to what this is, can it be fixed do-it-yourself style, and how much the repair might cost?

problem with the transformer high

I do not think you can solve yourself. In my opinion, if it is under warranty, go to a specialist. It seems to be a problem with the transformer high. Before you go to a specialist to check that please voltage of the socket!
