Dark lines appearing across my lcd tv

My Sony LCD tv has developed dark lines that run in columns across the centre of the screen. They are more prevalent against a green background and tend to appear after the tv has ben on for a 30 minutes. What could be wrong. Do I need to buy a new tv?

The tcon Board or the LCD panel is faulty. You have to replace the Tcon Board to confirm whether it was Tcon or the LCD panel.

White line across screen


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following
symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can
examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life
of your monitor or TV by several years.

Take it to a repair shop.

I have the exact think happening on my Samsung LN46A530 and it has just been 2 years since I bought it. There better be a cheap fix for this because a $2,000 product has to last a lot longer than 2 years.

My Dell monitor developed a thin, dark line horizontally across the screen. Within three months, a second line appeared. I can view the screen, but must look above or below the lines at times. Any idea...


this occurs very commonly in all LCD monitors... this is because each and every cells in the LCD monitor are energized by the vertical and horizontal electric fields placed around the frame of the monitor... if a particular field does not gives the power to the associated cells to it, then the entire line of cells will not operate and together they looks like a single line...This is what happened in your case...

With the tv off, my new Sony kdlvl160 appears to have lines on the lcd screen. Am I seeing things? This is the second one and they seem to be in same general area. TV is mounted to wall so maybe this is...


What directions are the lines?

Are these lines lit up, or just a dark pattern on the display?

If it appears like the LCDs are switching on (e.g. this line is perfect vertical or horizontal line that appears to have color when lit with a flashlight), then there is likely an electronics fault that is causing a tiny amount of current to reach the LCD driver chips for a vertical or horizontal column/row. that would concern me as something that may get worse over time.

Most TVs are built to be rigid enough for wall mounting, so this should have no effect. The only crazy thing I can think of is if somebody put a toooo long screw in one of the mounting holes in the TV and is contacting some part of a circuit. Likely? No. Possible? maybe.

Dark horizontal lines on Sony KLV-26HG2 LCD TV screen


Hello,

If you can fix it by yourself, there is a problem in horizontal circuit panel, you need to check that in series because the part appear visbly good but when tested by the exact tester you register busted. that should be replaced immediately. Check also the vertical panel parts of the circuit. but if hard you do the job you may consult the service center of your TV or the vendor of the TV.

ps. please don't rate me if you are not convince of my suggestion.

best regards, melnavz

Black line running horizontally across TV screen


A line on an LCD, either horizontal or vertical usually means the video driver board is defective or the screen is defective, does it show up as black even on a dark screen? That means a line of LCD "shutter"s is not working and there is a problem that cant be fixed by a reboot or channel change. Bummer.

Dark vertical line(s) on Lcd tv


Most likely it's the LCD panel failure. You can replace the panel if you can find a spare part. But the new panel may cost you as much as to buy a new tv. Hope that will help you.
