Customer Question

My Samsung LN40D630M3F has equally spaced parallel lines or bars across the entire upper half of screen. The bottom half looks ok. You can still see the pic on top half, but has the lines through it.

Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority. Sorry to hear you’re having trouble. Are these horizontal or vertical lines?Does this affect all inputs/sources (cable/satellite, dvd, game, etc)? What about the samsung on screen setup menu?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
horizontal lines or bars, about 1/4' wide, spaced equally, covering entire top half of screen. On all inputs, even setup screen.
Expert:  Nathan replied 1 year ago.
Thank you for confirming. Do those lines change color, shape/thickness or position at all?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No, you can see the pic, top half has lines through it, bottom half looks normal.
