Mine is 3 months out of extended 5 year warranty and had some flickering horizontal lines, but mainly white verticle lines top to bottom 1/4" apart. Repair man said it is the board. He turned on the TV menu which extended out beyond the main picture, and there were no lines on the menu square out side the main picture. He then he knew it was not the comcast connection, but the TV. Also a DVD had the same lines. It might be caused by capacitors that were bad first, then affected the board, but he has not checked them yet. All in all, over $600 for the board on a $3000+ TV just over 5 years old. I called the capacitor class action lawsuit and at this time, the Oklahoma case did not cover this model--it is possible it might be extended later they said, so keep your receipts and document with Samsung, even though out of warranty.
I am hoping someone can help and tell me this is easily fixable.
Samsung was unable to help because it is out of warranty. But it does disappoint me because this TV should have lasted me many many more years.
And yet in approximately, 15 months after, the horizontal white flickering lines appeared one day.
Samsung Model LNS4695DX
This is happening with the HDMI, PC and Component inputs.
Currently, it is not happening when playing a DVD. But one day (last Tuesday) it also happened with the DVD player.
I created a video that shows our TV with the problems:
Can someone provide some insight or if someone has experienced the same issue?
*If I was asked, I would not recommend a Samsung TV due to this experience. My friend who also bought a Samsung TV this just past February, also needed to get their brand new TV serviced two times, when they finally replaced it with a brand new one. Lucky for her, she bought the extended warranty.
