Hello and Welcome. My name is ***** ***** I'll assist you today. I'm sorry you're having trouble with it.

- Is that line always there regardless of what video source is being watched on TV?

- Is it complete vertical or horizontal line?

Line is always there & line is complete horizontal
Expert:  Shahid replied 9 months ago.

OK, unfortunately horizontal line is always indicates display panel (the screen) internal circuitry failure and entire screen will be replaced to resolve the problem. I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the TV to have it replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.

If TV is out of warranty then screen replacement may cost approx new TV price of same size. I'm sorry there is no easy or quick fix for this problem and it is definitely hardware failure that needs defective screen/ display panel replacement to resolve the issue. I trust my input will help you out to make decision about this TV repair or invest that money on new replacement TV. Please feel free to respond if you have any additional questions.
