Last Update Date : Apr 15. 2019

Shadow in Samsung TV screen appears when broadcast signal is not stable or connected wire is faulty. While watching TV with connected external devices and shadow appears only on specific channels, then the cause may be broadcast signal.


Below mentioned are some measures that you can perform :


● You can check the signal strength and signal quality of the connected device.

● Perform self device check by connecting another device like a DVD player, Blu-ray player, Set top box, gaming console etc.

● If the shadow still appears by connecting other devices then your TV may be faulty unless check the previously connected device.
