Question about Televison & Video
I have three lines running down my screen...one is wider on the bottom then the other two. It almost looks as if liquid got inside and there is now a smear on the inside on the screen. Is this something that can be fixed or should I scrap the TV?
Magnavox 32" LCD HDTV
I have a dark band or line running down the right side of my screen. Kind of where the the 4:3 aspect ratio ends. I don't usually use 4:3 so I don't know if that's just a coincidence.
The dark stripe started very small up in the corner and has continued to grow over the past 4 months. It is mostly noticeable on solid colors.
It's only slightly distracting, but I am worried that it means the entire screen is about to die on me.
If it's an LCD TV, then what your seeing is Liquid Crystals inside.
Chances are that someone has bumped the LCD or damaged it, and now the
screen is broken. The "Dark Lines" are from misfiring pixels which is a
sign that the LCD is damaged and will either stay the same, or get much
much worse. I'd lean towards much much worse.
Just keep it until it really gets bad then just replace it. You can have it fixed, but the repair would cost more then just buying a brand new one.

Inspect where the dark streaks are on the television. If the streaks occur at the same place on the top and bottom of the screen, they are due to the formatting of a movie or television show you are watching. This is normal. Also, if the streaks appear on the left and right of the screen, they are due to the show being filmed in full-screen instead of wide-screen. This also is normal.
Change the input setting so you are viewing the contents of a different device. If the dark streaks are gone, you know they are due to the device connected to it. However, if the dark streaks remains no matter what input the TV is connected to, the problem lies with the television.
