My 6900 smart series tv started getting horizontal lines on the screen and the picture was freezing in the background at times. On the left hand side of the screen a black blob started to form along the frame. The screen at this area was very hot to the touch. I turned the tv off for a few hours. Immediately after turning the tv on the screen was again hot and the lines were still on the screen. Is there a fix for this or should I just purchase a new tv? This tv is about 6/7 yrs old, have had no issues and have been really pleased with the performance of this tv.
