Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Your described problem indicates a failing capacitor in the vertical section. The erring capacitor would probably cost you less than a dollar and could be repaired in less than an hour. It would take more time to open the casing and remove the board in preparation of the work. The trick then would be identifying which is the capacitor. Normally it would be the biggest of the bunch in the vertical section. Often it would have a blistered/leaking top look. There are only two (2) solder points and is polarity sensitive. If you are considering a DIY (do-it-yourself), it would be wise to exercise caution as their are extremely high voltage present inside a TV set even when the power is off.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

I bought an LCD Samsung 3 years ago and about a year ago a thick black line appeared in the middle of the screen. Can this be fixed at home?


check if the lines appear on different inputs or source like hdmi,av,pc, if it happens on a different source then theres a problem with the lcd screen it needs to be fix.

Half of the image on the screen of my Nikon L6


Hello

Yes, the colored vertical lines, this actually means that the screen is cracked internally..I know this is not something you will like to hear, because this is such a great unit, at the best there might be a loose connection, but i doubt this.

I always post a link where the use can download a updated soft copy of the manual whach can be used for future troubleshooting. Just click on the link below, where you will be directed to a page where you can download the manual.

Plasma TV technical difficulty


if you can still see the picture its most likely the control board that's going bad, you will still need a tech out to fix the issue.

HX-P4241W appears yellow. Left and Right of screen are yellow


Yellow is the lack of blue. It can happen when you are running your contrast - which is your overall light level - too high.

Try turning down your contrast. On CRT tech, contrast should always be run at half what the factory allows as full, on the user controls. Full up is what calibrators call Torch Mode, and is NOT the way to get performance to be in the linear operating range of CRT tech.

If your sides are more yellow than your middle, your set may need lenstriping. Mild yellow on the sides is not uncommon, and usually not noticed. But heavy yellow on the sides would indicate that the blue image needs work on white field uniformity.

Yellow is the lack of blue, in CRT tech.

There are white lines ony my photocopies


You need to be more specific with your diagnosis.

1- are they black or white lines?
2- does it happen when you put the paper in the feeder ( on top)?
3- what about if you put it directly on the glass?
4- do faxes come out OK?

Image looks with white verital striped lines in playback mode


Mine had the same problem (except the stripes are horizontal).  I sent it to Canon and sure enough it is the CCD problem that many of these have.  The good news is that it is covered under a recall and Canon will fix it free, including the shipping.

sound like you have 1 or a couple of leaky/bad capacitors in the tv's vertical circuit, typically, there sould be 5 to 10 caps. in all, but you just need 1 bad one to cause your problem. good luck.
