green/black vertical line on samsung lcd?

I got a 40" Samsung Series 6 LCD TV. My sister was just watching some tv and suddenly a green/black line appeared? Does this indicate a faulty panel? Any fix I can do?

I'm sorry to hear that you're having this issue.

If you're sure it's not a broadcast issue, and it happens on other inputs, you may need to have the unit inspected by an authorized technician.

black spots


This is not a broadcast issue and all other inputs display this error. However the lines have dissappeared and have been replaced by 3 big black spots.

I took this picture few hours ago and now the spots are much bigger.Dead Pixels?

I've not seen round spots like that on a panel before. If it's growing, I'd recommend calling a technician. Sorry, but there's no way to provide a diagnosis on that without being able to take a closer look.
