Samsung 62" Rear Projection (PCL6215R) Gray scrolling lines

Just bought this television on Saturday from a friend ($25). It's a great TV and the picture is beautiful but when there is a lot of white on the screen there is a dark-gray, almost black, line about 4" wide that seems to follow the white portions of the screen. Any ideas what might be causing this and white i might be able to do to fix it?

Since I only paid $25 for the unit, I really wouldn't mind throwing a couple hundred dollars into it if I have to.

Thank you.

Forgot to mention that the line spans the entire width of the screen and at times, it's multiple lines...

krnlpanic,

It could be one of two things: It could either be a board inside of the television - either the tuner or main board, or it could be either of the lamps in the set. Without inspecting it, it would be difficult to determine.

If you'd like to have a tech come out and take a look, you can have one sent out by calling 800-SAMSUNG, but it's out of warranty, so it would be an out of pocket expense for the inspection and repair.
