Vertical black line on the screen of my 42" Magnavox flat panel lcd tv

One day when I turned my TV on, there was a black vertical line going down the left side of the screen about 2 inches thick with some red lines trailing it like an echo. What is this problem and can anyone fix it?

I wish I could post a solution, but I don't have one. I too have a Magnavox. About 6 months ago, once every 2 weeks or so, the screen would just go black- all but an inch or two on either side. Now, it seems like it's a weekly thing, sometimes every hour or two. As of tonight, it has happened twice in a matter of thirty minutes. It usually repairs itself if I turn it on and then off again but that's just not working anymore. If anyone has a solution, let me know.

Sorry but you have a bad panel. Repair cost is prohibitive. The T-con was a good choice, but is the last step to the panel.

Vertical line on screen


Hi, This is a problem that's far too common among flat-panel and projection LCD TV's?and it's generally known as "vertical banding." If the lines are there all the time or intermittent but in the same location it is an indication of a bad panel. The panel driver can also be the cause of this symptom. Samsung panels have had issues with the connector that carries the LVDS signals to the panel itself, this is not serious and can be resolved and little cost. These faint vertical bars (often most apparent when the screen is totally dark or displaying a solid background, like the sky) are defects that occur during the manufacturing process, and while the worst offenders are typically screened out, many more make it to store shelves. Since you've pinpointed the banding and it's driving you nuts,also its under warranty, call the manufacturer and demand a replacement; in most cases, they'll capitulate and send you a new set, although you'll probably have to go to the trouble of packing and shipping back your defective TV (make sure the manufacturer covers your shipping costs).

Vertical Line started on left side of HDTV, and now


This problem is down to the actual LCD or plasma screen, if this shows as the screen warms up and stays on then the screen will need to be replaced, you should go back to your retailer (not manufacturer) and report this problem, depending on the store and how long you have had the tv, the tv can be replaced for a like for like tv at store as this is not a cheap standard repair.
