Unless there is an option on the menu to set the width of a vertical line in the middle of the screen (and that seems VERY unlikely), I'm afraid this needs repair by a tech. Time to contact Samsung Customer Service in your country (either directly or via the shop where you bought it). Repair will be free if you still have warranty.

Hello, first at all thanks for your reply .
I get in touch with Samsung service and they 've said the panel is off ( by phone) .
As TV's warranty is expired since 2 months (!!!) , the cost will be 500 Euros for the panel + VAT + hand labour ...
The TV will remain like that until it will be broken , and I will change it but NOT for a Samsung one .
A TV set which costed 2300 Euros cannot be broken after 2 years ( + 2 months) ...
DO NOT BUY SAMSUNG ....
