This just happened to me yesterday. I turned on the TV to this screen. I tried all inputs with no luck. I've had the TV for a little under 3 years. After reading through the Samsung community, I noticed this is a common problem with this model. Everyone's TVs on the forums seem to be having this issue at around the 3 year mark. I use Samsung products in our home and they never have failed us. This was a large purchase for my family. It's really disappointing. Could you please provide a solution?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Purchased in Dec 2016, really sad to see this happen. Spent the extra on a good brand like Samsung for the longevity. Seems to be a really prevalent issue in the KS8000 series. If any mod is around I would love to get this fixed. 😞
Welp... Like many others my KS8000 seems to have fallen victim to the vertical green line broken panel. I have used it for a few years and out of nowhere it shut down and then turned back on to this. Cannot find a repair shop locally that will touch it and at a loss for what to do. I have only purchased Samsung TVs and hadn't had issues until this one. I already had to replace the input box once and now with this I fear it might be time to move on.
Does anybody know how I can get this fixed? I spent so much money on this TV and while I know it is out of warranty, I loved it while it was working and don't want to give it up.
My 55 inch Samsung KS9000 TV randomly started showing vertical lines and shadowing on all inputs. I was somewhat surprised as I own 4 Samsung TVs. Three of which look as good as day one and are older than my KS9000. I have been an exclusive Samsung TV owner and have always felt that the Samsung name meant quality. So, I am disappointed that this TV is starting to fail only after 3-4 years. I hope there is a solution/fix for this issue.
I started getting vertical colored lines today on my un55ks8500 TV. I tried unplugging everything and then only pluggin power back in and it is still doing it.
Having the same issues as the other members posting. TV less than 4 yrs old started getting the vertical lines. I have read mods can help get this fixed or exchanged. Any help is appreciated.
