Thick Black Line Down Middle of TV

When I switch from HD to standard definition channels, I get a thick black line down the middle of my screen. When I switch back to HD, there's no line. If my TV is off and I turn it on a standard def channel before and HD channel, there's no line. I tried changing the cable box and that didn't help.

Does this only occur with one input and/or does it occur when using HDMI/component cables.

if so, try getting a new HDMI cable. I have the same problem with PS3...and im about to order a new HDMI cable.

Your plasma screen is made up of 1080 verticle lines and now a few of these lines are not working. This is the screen itself and needs replacing.

My Bush tv NR Itv 2101 on channels 1 & 4 picture is fine but channels 2,3, & 5 has a black band 1 inch deep top and botton. All channels say 4.3 so can't be that, any idea's. regards JM


it is because the channel is being brodcast in hd and not just digital. it is an unfortutane side effect of the dtv convertion, all brodcast are now digital but not all are high def, if you had a high def tv and were watching and standard definition channel it would have thick black line on the left and right because the image does not fill the dislay

Thin vertical line


What you have described is definitely some form of Electrical Interference. Interference can come from a variety of causes. Is the Cable Inputting the Cable Box close to some High Voltage Electrical Lines? Or Are you located near some Electrical Power Station? Or A Police station, where the Radio Transmitter of the Police Station causing the Interference? As I said, there are a variety of reasons. Also, Try to check if the connector is loose at the rear of the Cable Box, or at the rear of the TV. You will have to eliminate every possibility reason. Wish i could help further.

If these are thick black lines, this is most likely line frequency noise entering the set. you may have a leakage from the DC ground on the secondary side of the powersupply to the AC side, or a bad filter capacitor(s). Most of the time it is the filter caps that give these types of problems. If you are connected to cable TV service, or an outside antenna you can also have this problem from an AC ground loop return. Also if there is a device such as a VCR connected to the TV and it has problems, it can cause this as well...
