Black Bars on screen.

Jump to solution

Every time I turn on my TV, my home screen features a ton of black bars across the screen that don’t seem to actually affect the picture but scare the heck out of me due to me thinking the picture is bad/going bad. Does anyone know what causes this and if I should be worried? Once I select an app/input, the bars go away.

 

Thanks!

My disappeared. I changed the theme and background. I had the default red background and theme. I changed it and now it's not doing that wear black bar thing anymore.

I am having this exact same issue. TCL w/ roku tv. Changing t background fixes it temporarily, but it always goes back to the bars.

It’s happening here too. I changed the theme and it stopped for a while, then came back. It does not seem to affect the function of the apps, as it goes away if I switch to Netflix or PS4, but it is very alarming. Hopefully there will be a patch. My TV just had it’s first birthday

Same here. (50S435, for the record). Received it January 8, but it wasn't doing it at first, only started 3-4 days ago.
