maritza390,

I'm sorry to hear that you're having this issue. Unfortunately, there's not much troubleshooting I can offer to help with this symptom. If it's happening on all inputs, it's likely the TV. If it's just happening on one input, you may want to check your device and reset it.

If that doesn't work, I'd recommend having your unit inspected by a qualified technician. If you need help in finding one in your area, you can call 800-SAMSUNG or fill out the online service request form here:

Thank you so much for your speedy reply. I figured I may as well try my only other attachment which is my DVD player. I did, and the lines where still present. I also reseted the Direct TV, and nothing happened. I will request a support service request.

Is there any way this could be Direct TV, even tho the lines stay when I play a dvd movie?

maritza390,

I'd lean towards the TV being the issue if it's happening on more than one input, as you noted. Sorry, I know that's not the answer you probably wanted, but that's what I believe to be the case here.

Thank you so much for your reply. I'm not sure what to do now.
I did fill out the support service request. So, I guess I will just wait for
them the reply?

maritza390,

Usually they will contact you during business hours.

If you'd like to follow up and speak to someone, you can do that by calling 800-SAMSUNG.
