    First, make sure that the 'glass' has no micro-crack in it. If it is intact, you may have a poor connection on the ribbon cable. You would have to partly disassemble the unit to seat the connection again. Last resort, replace the screen completely. Available on the web for $44.oo or $47.00. There is a Manual in PDF that can be downloaded to show you how to do all this yourself.

Lines at top of screen, about 4"

This is due to vertical deflecton problem, there is some capacitors that has gone bad and need replacing. It might just be one cap rated at 100uf 35 volts. This is called vertical foldover eventually the top will fold over or you will get a 4" black border on the top of the scrn.

I have green and blue arched lines across my screen. how do i fix this

This is one of a group of sets that had bad picture tubes. A lot of them were replaced out of hand when the sets were new--I did dozens of them.

The tubes are no longer available from Sony and only available on a rebuild basis--remove the bad one and send it out for rebuild at about 300 per tube.


HERE IS WHAT I suggest:

With the set at first unplugged you need to remove the entire plastic grill under the front screen. It is secured in one of two ways: either 4 or more screws on the back on either side; it pulls out from the bottom and has tabs that are tucked into slots just under the screen.

The front controls/keyboard are mounted into it so if you get it free you tilt the front grill on its left side to the left; there are wire ties you can release to get more room.

The other way some versions use is there are two hidden screws at the bottom front covered with caps--remove them and lift from bottom and tilt to the left.

The idea here is to try to turn the screen controls for the green and blue (in your case) down.

With the grill out of the way you will find an inspection plate behind it dead center---remove that.


ONE row is marked Focus (Do not touch those) You have to look closely as the controls are black and hard to read--left to right green will be in the middle and red or blue on either side of it.

With the set now turned on go to a unused video input: Locate the blue screen control( tiny letters will be b,g, red with green in the middle---turn the blue down slowly (usually to the left) until any blue lines and or blue background vanish---in your case then repeat with the green SCREEN control until any green curved lines or back ground are gone.

The idea is to lower each screen control until they just vanish--when properly done on the blank input you should only see the "VIDEO 1" ETC in green, with no other color in the background. Do it slowly and it should take less than 1/4 of a turn for this.

If it works you should now have a good black and white picture.

Since these sets have a history of this kind of problem you may only be buying some time---I have done it on dozens of sets and many last more than a year or more without repeat of the problem.

This gives you more life from the set and time to save up to replace it.

Let me know before you attempt this if you have any questions.

All plasma an lcd TV have boards that control vertical and horizontal output to their respective areas. They are connected to the screen by ribbon cables. If one of these boards fails all together, has a failed chip, a bad connection, or a bad ground somewhere it will result in a black line in the area of that board. A bad ribbon cable connection on the bottom will result in a vertical black bar though the screen. Many times resetting the connection will fix it, if the ribbon cable has been nicked there could be a severed connection. They an sometimes be fixed, but it is a pain. An yes I have done it, but the bar is gone. The same will happen if the chip that outputs to that area opens. The connectors are the first place to look paying close attention to the cable, they are extremely delicate so great care must be taken if you decide to tinker with em, the usually have lift locks that release them, but it is very easy to wreck em.

Good luck.

Black screen ecept for thin white line around all four side. Channel buton changes colors in various section of screen. On/ off button does not work

I found the solution on mine. To restate, I just saw a thin white border around a black screen. Pressing the channel up or down buttons changed the screen, in some kind of test mode to shades of gray, and red, green, and blue. I started finding a solution when I noticed when on one of the color screens, that the volume up or down buttons brought up a new menu for color intensity. Finally, I got back to the thin white border screen and pressed the arrow keys in the top half of the remote. Finally a TV screen and I pressed the enter key! Voila!

My laptop, an Acer Aspire 5715z, has a big ol' white patch on it with a smaller one at the top of the white one. It covers about half of the screen, and it has blue around the start of the white line.

Oh okay. Your screen is physically cracked. Its broken, its going to need to be replaced. Thats why a part of the screen is coming and then you see splotches on the screen. Looks like somebody hit directly with something or stepped on it. If you turn the laptop off and shine a light on it, you might be able to see where the crack originated.

In the meantime until you get another lcd screen, you can hook up an external monitor to the laptop and use it like that for now.
