Colored Vertical Lines on Samsung LN37A550P3FXZA TV
EDIT III: Hello again, I believe I have located the tabs. Are these the tabs you mentioned?
I also forgot to mention that when I turn on the TV it looks like this:
for the first minute or so then it powers off 1-3 times before turning back to normal with the two sets of lines in the TV. I pressed on the tabs shown in the above images and doing so has produced no result. Are there any other solutions you can think of? Or am I out of luck and would be better off buying a new TV.
EDIT II: Hello, I believe that this is where the ribbon cables would be located but they appear to be underneath the surrounding metal chassis of the TV. Attached are pictures to illustrate this issue. Given this, should I try to remove the metal covers for the board or should I just leave it alone as there is nothing I can do given this issue.
Pictures of TV Internals:
EDIT: Hello, I have attached several pictures of both the lines that appear on my TV and of the internals of the TV. If it is in fact the T-Con board, could you please provide a link as top where I could purchase a suitable replacement. Thanks.
Hello, I have a Samsung LN37A550P3FXZA TV. It has colored lines that run vertically for two inches wide on the left side of the screen. Are there any simple and cheap fixes for this? I have some technical knowledge and would feel comfortable opening up my TV and replacing anything that is necessary.
Is this a good question?
