Do vertical color lines indicate defective color panel?

by AirahLL / February 9, 2012 10:41 AM PST

Two years old Samsung Model 46B6000VF; Would new panel cost more than new TV?
Is it hopeless? What should I do?

Be sure to have it inspected.

It could be another board or such. Please remove from service since continued use can result in more damage.

If your not under warranty it will probably about the same price. Samsung has had a ton of problems with all their TVs lately so one might switch brands..... Depending on your budget.

Actually it looks to be in line with Market Share.

If you factor in that Samsung hit over 50% of the market segment, it's like saying the same thing about Ford, Chevy products.

-> However there is an industry issue with how the expected life times appear to be much shorter than last decades.
