Vertical ghost line on model LNS4041D

Postposted on Sat Jan 30, 2010 2:37 pm

I have posted before in this forum regarding my TV power-on problem, now I am getting another problem with this TV.
There is a vertical dark colored ghost line on the right side of my screen that is becoming more apparent as time goes on. It doesn't matter what components are hooked up to it, dvd, blue ray or the Wii. Has anyone with this model or similar had this problem before? Samsung's technicians were absolutely useless, and couldn't care less about my problem, which is typical with my dealings with them since I purchased this TV. Your help is most appreciated. Here are some pics of the problem.

Not sure if this will help, but Nokia monitor test may be able to help you better identify exactly when the line appears.

Otherwise, I am not really sure what that is.

Thanks but it is a TV not a monitor, and this line is permanent and getting worse as time goes on.
Any other ideas anyone?

Looks like a faulty backlight to me. How old is the TV?
