My amazing samsung LNT5271F has been flawless for like 5 or 6 years. The other day these horizontal black lines started appearing. They quickly come on then off, like they flicker. It's nothing I can recreate or predict when they come on. It happens across all inputs and I can go for hours without a problem. Any thoughts? The panel seems fine, i'm guessing it's a video board somewhere. I'd prefer to get it fixed instead of buying a new samsung un55es7500 (or 8000 if i was richer) because I have a wedding to pay for. Any thoughts on what it might be or how much it might cost to fix?
try replacing the main board... thats what i did. cost me $40 bucks with expedited shipping and a lil know how and boom, fully functional! i almost shat. Thats all well and good Unless its the screen but 90% of the time its the main board, but then you can just resell the main board! yaayy!
