Samsung TV trouble!! Please Help!

Hello. I have a Samsung 25" tv. (Model Number TXG2547). I have been having a problem with it. When I turn it on, the picture is squeezed in to a very thin vertical line across the screen, with the rest of the screen being black. (Think of widescreen to the absolute extreme.) Sometimes the picture is fine, but lately it has been terrible. Has anyone else had a problem like this? I have actually seen this same exact model in a video store, and 2 of them had the same problem. Does anyone else have this model? How can I fix the problem? Should I buy a new TV? Is this what it sounds like when doves cry?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

From your description, it sounds as though it is doa. A similar situation happened to my Hitachi and it ended up as a big paperweight. The tube actually went out. If it's worth repairing then by all means, but with the current price of new tv's, you might want to invest in a new one. IMHO of course.
