Hello, my TV suddenly has a purple/violet/blue line on the left side of my screen. It's such an expensive TV purchased during XMAS of 2017. I'm honestly surprised to have an issue after only 3 years of use, on what is considered a pretty high tier TV at the time. My warranty expired in 12/2018. I am unsure about the service cost of having a technician even come visit, let alone what they may say or find, is the cost to repair it (if it's even repairable). I did the picture test, and can see the line, albeit thin during the picture test, it failed 1, 2, and 3. It's clearly visible against a black background, and less so against other colors, but definitely noticeable while watching movies for example.
Does anyone know what it cost for a service to come visit?
I was not offered an extended warranty at Frys at the time of purchase, and was not aware you could purchase an extended warranty from Samsung, or other third party providers.
Is there anything anyone can recommend, or anyone that can help? Is this a lost cause? Am I in for a complete panel loss, is this an initial sign of a more problems to come? Should I expect more lines at some point?
I have this same model of TV. It developed lines, and had to be repaired under warrantly after a few months. It developed a new line and some more dead pixels this summer, just oustide the extended warranty I bought. Samsung seems to not care at all.
I wish I had better news for you. Seems we both have giant hunks of garbage now.
