Occasionally a little blue square is displayed in the middle right of the tv.

Once in a while a little blue square appears in the middle of the tv and does not go away until I shut the tv off and then turn it back on. why is this? what does it mean? should I have it serviced? the tv is only 3 weeks old.

Can a blue dot on a tv screen get worse or stay the same.

One little blue dot is not enough to warranty the television. If you read all the documents on the set, it will tell you that some imperfections in the display are allowed. The good news is that it wont get any worse

Big black square in middle of screen picture top to bottom about 36 " wide good audio and picture 6" on right and left side displaying.

If you have tried using different input devices, looked for loose contacts
in power outlet, RC Jack, cable and connectors, the TV might need service.

Sony bravia 37Xbr6 blue line

One of two things is happening: the LCD display is going bad due to overheating or the LCD display controller board is going bad due to overheating.

The former is not possible to fix, the later is fairly cheap to try.

This seems to be a common problem for the model - and by the way for many recent displays - and if it turns out to be the display indeed I am sure eventually Sony will be slapped with a class action lawsuit.
Alas, those things take time to happen.

Anyway, your chance is in trying to replace the T-CON (also known as LCD controller) board before throwing out the TV.

The T-CON for this TV is T370HW02 I believe and you can find a lot of them on eBay...but the bare fact there are a lot of them available suggests there will either be a lot of them bad as well or , more likely, that the problem is not in the T-CON.

I am afraid you are having a practically unrepairable problem.

Please don't kill the messenger.

Toshiba LCD 37" with gray band and blue line

Unfortunately you are right it is the display panel going bad. You can either live with it or buy you a new tv as the panels usually cost as much or more than the tv. Sorry.

GHOST: May be described as "Out of Convergence" but ghost is still attached to main image.
A "ghost image" appearing to the left or right of images in the picture. Can be varying shades of a primary color (red, green, or blue) as well as gray. Can easily be seen in the 4 x 3 mode, at the edges of the picture.

To correct the problem, please do as follows:
  1. Access I2C Menu. (See page 57 of the Service Manual).
  1. To enter the I2C Service Menu, with power off, (on the front control panel) press and hold the INPUT button. Then press the POWER button for two seconds. The following Service Menu will appear.

  • Be sure to press SELECT after each change to SAVE the new Data.

  1. Using the Remote Control joy stick, scroll down to next page (see Figure 2) until LCD ADJUST is highlighted.
03b_ghost_image02.gif Figure 2
  1. Move the joy stick to the right to cursor right once. The next page will appear with the word GHOST highlighted.
  2. Cursor right again, and a white screen will appear with a BLACK SQUARE in the center, as in Figure 3. You will see LCD ADJUST, followed by “SHP” and a number (value).
Figure 3

  1. If the unit is out of adjustment, you will see a gray ghost on either side of the black square. Move the joystick to the right or to the left until the ghost disappears. The number values will change up or down.
    • If the ghost adjustment is off with a lower value, there will be a ghost to the left of the square.
    • If the ghost adjustment is off with a higher value, there will be a ghost to the right of the square.
  2. Once you get the square to look good without ghosts, press "SELECT" to save any data values that have been changed.
  3. Press the "EXIT" button three times to return to normal picture.
  4. Adjustment is completed

Lines on tv screen

Both sound like bad LCD panels. The following must be answered to confirm this:
Do the lines appear on all inputs/all signal sources?
Can they be seen in the OSD/menu?
If yes to both questions, it is likely that the LCD panel is bad
