Here's a link to the image of the issue with horizontal lines:
Make: Samsung LED-backlit LCD
Model Code: UN46B7000WFXZA
I purchased the UN46B7000WF back in Christmas of 2009, so I'm past my warranty. I've had no issues with the TV up until now, but this is a big one. I have repeating horizontal lines from top to bottom on the left side of my screen. They're thin grey lines, so it's just enough to be annoying. I'll post a link to a picture later. The lines show up on both HDMI inputs, and even on the TV menu when I remove all inputs.
I looked through forums and some people think that issue comes back to the LCD panel, which is $1000 just for the part (not to mention labor). The upgraded model of this TV (4 years newer) is only $799, so it's definitely not worth fixing if that's the issue.
Has anyone had this problem and been able to fix it?
