Samsung UE40F6670 SBXXU 40 inch tv
Bought this tv 17/08/2013, in the last few days it has a black shadow across the middle of the screen, can this be repaired?
Hi, I am A. Stevens here to help with your question! Does this happen while watching all different types of inputs, (IE, HDMI, TV, DVD PLAYER, etc.)? Or does it happen particulary while watching certain things?

all inputs any program

I understand. So in this case the LED screen on the TV has malfunctioned...if it was only happening on certain inputs it would be the controller board, which isn't too hard/expensive to fix. Replacing the LED screen wouldn't be worth it in my opinion though...
I could locate a Samsung service center near you if you want to have it assessed...but as I mentioned it might make more sense just to purchase another TV.
You would probably be looking at upwards of 500 to repair it while you could probably replace the set for right around there
