Samsung LCD screen flickering

by jcat8888 / October 31, 2012 12:24 AM PDT

I have a Samsung LCD "LN-" model, 40" TV that is about 5-years-old. Over the past few weeks it has developed a flicker that ONLY appears on the left side of the screen. Often this is accompanied by a dark bar that divides the screen in half and (only) sometimes it has a image trail on that side of the screen. I hate to say, but I can usually clear this up with a sharp smack to the side or top of the set. Anyone? Thanks.

That's sadly called abuse but any tech will tell you it means that some connection may be less than perfect. You've told enough for a good tech to dive in so I'll stop here.
