Vertical lines Vertical blue lines across entire screan equaly spaced about 1 cm apart. I contacted Sony via email and they suggest that it could be the Optical blocks but but the samples they show seem to be more random,where as my problem is more uniform and covers entire screan.

    We have vertical lines as well, red, blue, green, no picture, just the lines and no sound. Is our problem the same solution? 2K to fix?

IF the area of the OSD (on screen display) displays the same vertical blue lines as the rest of the screen, then it is most likely the optical block assembly at fault. It's part number is A1606006A and should cost close to $2,000. I'm assuming the set is out of warranty. I know many people are hooked on Sonys, but as a technican that works on them, I wouldn't want one in my home.

My tv sony kv-xa21m61 display too bright and many horizontal lines. no picture

Vertical retrace lines is the problem. Thin white lines runs across the entire screen, at about an inch apart to each other. Check its video output supply voltage. Reduce the screen voltage to a little bit down and check. If you still wish to know more about this fault, check this site. Pull up older posts there.

Blue Vertical Lines on the screen

It means the optical block is going bad. Contact Sony support. They will sometimes warranty these even after the 1yr warrany has expired. Have your model and serial numbers handy.

NEC px-42vp4g/s 42in.plasma monitor PDP:np42b3mf01...

I have the same problem with vertical coloured lines on my NEC PX-42VP4G/S. The photo only shows a black background just so it's easier to see the lines in the photo but normally the picture is OK except for the vertical lines which aren't always in the same place.
If anyone can advise on exactly what I need to replace then I would be very grateful.
Regards, Simon.

White lines equally spaced 1" apart.

This is probably caused by the small signal board. It controls and decodes the picture information before it is sent to the display panel. It can be fixed by a quailified technician and if you contact philips (this is who makes magnavox) they will tell you the closest certified technician. Hope this helps.
