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.
The same thing happened to me tonight. I was playing my Xbox and all of a sudden the screen started to flicker and green lines appeared. I unplugged all inputs and even tried rebooting the TV but when I turn the TV back on a bunch of colored lines appear. Considering I have a Samsung's phone smartwatch and TV I'm getting concerned that the longevity of all of my devices are compromised because of the poor quality please advise what I can do outside of warranty
My TV also just passed away due to the KS8000 vertical lines of death. I’m surprised to see that Samsung made such a quality TV with a known design flaw. This was a huge purchase for our family and took us 2 years to pay off. I pray the support moderator I just reached out to can make it right. I’ll update my thread here and Reddit with the outcome. Let’s go Samsung! Please don’t let us all down!
