Thin Black line on screen - Samsung Plasma TV PS42A457P1DXXU

by Nips0001 / August 24, 2010 4:13 AM PDT

Switched TV off at mains whilst on holiday and everything OK. On return when it powered up there is a thin black line (top to bottom)about 2/3rd of the way across the screen. I've tried switching off. I've checked all the external cables to ensure they are not loose. TV purchased May 2009.

Can anyone help? Thanks

I'm sorry to hear that you're having this issue.

Unfortunately, with no way to determine the cause, I don't have much in the way of advice on how to fix it. I'd recommend having the unit inspected by a technician.

The most beautiful phone ever has one wildly annoying issue

The Samsung Galaxy S8's fast speeds and fantastic curved screen make it a top phone for 2017, but the annoying fingerprint reader could sour your experience.
