This answer was rated:

My Samsung LE40M87bought December 2007 is occasionally showing thick black horizontal lines, mainly along the bottom 20% of the screen but sometimes in the top quarter. What is the cause and what should I do?

KevinWhiteJA :

Hi, welcome to Just answer

KevinWhiteJA :

Does it always shows horizontal lines or it disappears after a while ?

Customer: The lines come and go. Most of the time the picture is clear.
KevinWhiteJA :

OK, and when you press the MENU button does the menu appear on top of the lines or behind the lines ?

Customer: I haven't tried that and the picture is clear at the moment so not possible to test.
KevinWhiteJA :

OK and this appears even when you connect a DVD player or something else

Customer: I think so, but once again I can't test this at the moment.
