Red lines and Shadows

by berdbert / November 28, 2009 10:33 AM PST

I have a Samsung LNT4671FX LCD 19 Months old with Vertical Red Lines in all sources with or without anything connected. Was intermittent but now on most of the time. Any help would be greatly appreciated. According to the internet this is not an isolated condition and I hpoe Samsung is looking into it.

At this point, I'm not aware of it being a "known issue" or something that we cover past the warranty period. I'd recommend having the unit inspected by an authorized technician.

I am having exact the same problem as berbert (I am living in Spain).
It is practically impossible to watch anything on the screen and it is just getting worse.

I have been looking into the multiple problems this model has had. The TV clicking on and off is finally being confronted by Samsung and they are repairing it one time.

The lines in the screen they still are not fixing this. It is wrong. I spend $2500 on a TV and 18 months later I have lines in my TV. They need to just google the issue and see how many people are complaining about this. Maybe if everyone complained to consumer reports they may offer a recall on the TVs.
