Vertical lines
English

Hi I have a Samsung 51" plasma TV in the living room that has developed three pink/white lines top to bottom in the same place on the TV. I thought it might be Sky but after disconecting it and playing a DVD the lines are still there. TV is less than a year old bought from Currys. Any ideas. Thanks in advance

There you go. Under warranty.

(Well, you're not going to put up with those lines are you?)

Do you think it is a definite fault with the TV ?

You only had a one year warranty on a 50" Plasma ?  That's odd.

Anyway, still ask for them to deal with the fault. Also email (& phone) the manufacturer.

Yes, you're well within your statutory rights to have the issue dealt with, 13 months for (presumably) quite expensive plasma TV isn't a reasonable or acceptable lifespan.
