What do you think caused these lines in led tv?

The google is your friend:

If you see a line or lines across the screen of your TV, it could be caused by a faulty cable, the TV failing, or the external device. By performing a Picture Test you can easily diagnose the cause.

Hmm switching cable did not do anything, I used a picture test and the lines do now show up , could it be the hdmi board starting Togo bad. ??

Have you tried different sources? Perhaps the problem is the source, not the TV.

If it didn't show the lines during the picture test, that would tend to suggest that the TV is not the problem.

Set it to Tuner and look at the screen- if it still has this line, the TV has some kind of problem. Adjust the brightness and contrast, too.

Go to channel 3, or a different one. Use the tuner. Call it 'Tuner Input'. All you have done so far is test different cables- use a different input jack.

Changing inputs did not do anything so it must be the tv which there isn’t no way to fix .
Could anything lesson the bars prominence ??

What is your source?

You tried a different source?

NOTE--Source is NOT the same thing as INPUT

PS3 and cable box both have the line, what do you mean by source. ??

Think the tv is just slowly dying out and noticed more lines occasionally during A rental of John wick 3.

What is the exact model number of the TV you are working with? It will say what it is on a sticker on the back. This can help give some idea of what may be going on.

Typically, as older panels fail, it is because of the connection between the main board and the LCD array on the panel itself. It could just require taking things apart and reseating the connection, but beyond that, it could be an actual failure of that section of pixels, which would require the entire panel to be replaced.

Neither me or my dad knows how to check too see how or what you do to reseat a connection so much for led tv lasting longer then lcd? My dads lcd lasted longer it was older .

I’ll get you model tomorrow it was a early Samsung 3d tv 55” looks flagships judging by the remote .
