Hoping someone out there will recognize this issue and point me in the direction of a diagnosis. The bars come and go intermittently, but always appear red and on the left hand side of the screen. I've got a call in to a service center, but I'd like to educate myself as much as possible before he comes out.

Thanks for the link, the TAB fault definitely looks like what I'm experiencing. Not at all what I wanted to hear, but thanks for the information!

On a positive note, I called Samsung and after about 20 minutes on the phone (and being elevated to their "Executive Customer Relations") they agreed to pay for the parts. I'm still looking at roughly $300 in "labor" (I should have been a TV repairman apparently), but needless to say I'm extremely relieved not to be looking at $1000+ for a panel. I thought that since all you generally hear about a given company are negative experiences, I should pass along this positive one. Kudos to Samsung to stepping up to the plate and offering to stand behind their product.
