when in pc mode, the lines appear to be over my curser, I can see the pc desktop image THROUGH vertical lines as though there is a space between the screen and lcd panel. Is it possible this is dust that was unsettled during my removal/installation process? Thanks
I have a Samsung LNT4061FX/XAA TV purchased at Conn's Electronics. It is about 1 1/2 years old.
It has been mounted on the wall for the last calendar year. I decided to lower the mount position so I removed the set from the wall, lifting from the side and bottom. I placed the set face down on my bed on top of a comforter I had placed to protect the screen. I performed my wall modifications and replaced the unit, lifting from the sides and/or bottom.
After installation, I powered the television set on and there were three extremely thin vertical lines that were immediately noticeable. The lines are visible whether in PC, Satelite, Cable or DVD modes. The are visible on the "blue" screen. They are most notable on white/light backgrounds. The lines start at the top of the screen and drop vertically 3", 3" and 10 inches respectively. The first line is about 4: from the left side, the second and third are about 25" and 25 1/2" from the left side. All of the lines have a distinct red razor line with portions of blue fuzz sprinkled intermittently along the respective lines. The lines have diminished somewhat as the day has worn on but still remain.
In addition, There are several small (pea size and smaller)grey "splotches" at across the top of the screen, all in the same horizontal position.
Lastly, there is a black area of "haze" on the top left area of the screen, darkening or clouding the image.
When I press against the screen, some of the verical lines partially clear up but the splotches and black cloud are unaffected.
A second issue is that the unit turns of and back occasionaly. Is this a problem that would be resolved with a software/firmware update?
Thanks in advance and look forward to any input. I intend on purchasing another samsung unit for the living room but want to see how I fair on resolving issues with this unit first before taking the plunge.
