Black line down the left side of the screen

Hi,
I have a black line down the left side of the screen nearer the middle. It is not that noticable although appears to be there all of the time. Will this get worse. It is probably about a cm wide.

    The line is vetrical from the top to the bottom and cover the whole length of the screen. It cannot been seen when the tv is off. thanks

  • mikerriley Nov 17, 2008

    Yes the picture can still be seen in this area. You notice it more when there is still background like when I watched the tennis on a blue court! You can still see it when the menu is in place. Thanks

    Thanks for that, albeit bad news. The only time I dont see the line is on the sky tv guide, but it is there on the blue screen when you flick through the channels on sky. Will it get worse?

    Thanks

    Thank you, that could be why it shows up more on different colour backgrounds etc. It could well have been there for a while and i seem to be the only one at times who can see it.



    Your comments and your know how, are more than appreciated.

    Can the picture still be seen in this area? It sound like the screen might be just a little darker in that area? Is it still there with the menu on the screen?

    How long is it? Can you see this line when the tv is off?

This is a bad panel. The panel is very expensive to replace. It would be cheaper to buy a new tv. Sorry about the bad news.

    I do not think so. The problem sound like the fluorescent bulbs that lite up the screen are out. Keep in mind that there are many, many fluorescent bulbs in the panel and only a couple or out.

Panasonic TC-P42S2 .. Transparent 2 inch wide vertical discoloration on panasonic 42 inch plasma, very left of the screen.


Fixed mine, myself! Black 3 inch vertical band (stripe) appeared after a cros country move on our PC-T50G10. Occasionally we would see white band with multicolored pixel width stripes. Took the risk of taking off the back to see if I could see anything. Found places on sides and bottoms where plastic like 2" flat cables could be seen. Guesstimated where the band was and found that I could flip down a black cover on one end of the cable. Tried to pull it, gently. Mistake. Realized it wouldn't one out like computer hard drive cables, so I took out the screws holding the plate on the other end (it's only an inch long). That allowed me remove the cable. Took it out, cleared away dust, put t back and closed the black over. It worked! Put the screws back in, back on and... we are happy (although I do have four extra screws!). Just be gentle.

Hi I have a LG RZ42px11 there are 6 vertical thick black lines running down the middle off the screen, when cold the TV seems OK but if it has been on for around 10mins or on standby the lines stay on screen.

Thanks.

Appears a black line vertically on the screen


hi all .ive had the same problem,a thick black line down screen.sometimes it flickers from top to bottom and other permantly in view.but i have solved it.forget your ic boards and taking apart tv.have you got either a ps3 or wii connected to tv.if so unplug power lead from socket and relocate in seperate socket.make sure the lead is completely free of any other leads and you might just find this works.i think the power lead creates some sort of frequency that the tv picks up .good luck hope it works

Line down middle of the screen-resolution is different on sides


Computer parts can sit in warehouses and be on trucks for a long period of time. Unfortunately that means things get banged around. Sometimes they don't even work when they come out of the factory. I suggest exchanging the monitor for another one. It could also be your video card. Easiest way is to exchange it and it's free to exchange.
