I have recently bought a TV of RCA 55" model.
I started to play my PlayStation 3 games on HDMI connection.
It's my 2nd month playing & watching Roku on TV.
However just today while starting my regular video game on big screen TV, I noticed on half way of center of screen a horizontal crack on the division of top to bottom line shown vivedly while playing the game?? The crack line stayed there.
Naturally worried as I quickly discontinued to play games. I also disconnected the Roku box HDMI cable. I changed the setup setting to display in HDMI port changed from standard to graphic level??
I switched back to playing the game, the cracked line disappeared.
But I don't want to take chances?? Is it better to play video games back on the smaller TV?? Or shall I try again to play video games on big screen? Any help appreciated, thank you?

Playing video games on any LCD TV like yours won't harm the TV in any way shape or form.

If the TV is showing issues, you should return it under warranty and get a new one. This TV is extremely inexpensive, so that speaks volumes about the build quality you should expect.

It likely is the video processing board causing this issue.

It will NEVER be the fault of the gaming system.

...well, unless you get hit by lightning.

Thank you for your crucial feedback.
Is it than possible to change video processing board?? I just don't want to hire a taxi to carry the unit all the way to replace. I was wondering if only a spare part could be replaced let's say I want invest in this unit?

Likely not. You would need to speak the manufacturer.
