Question about Philips 42PF9830A 42 in. LCD Television
When you touch it with your finger lightly the line disapears can it be fixed and would it be expensive
Unfortunately, pixel thin lines are usually failures of the actual panel. If you can touch it and effect the problem, it depends on where. If it is in the middle of screen or away from the edge, you have broken connections on the TFT layer of the lcd panel.. meaning you need a new lcd panel. If you touch near the edge to effect, it is possible that the ribbon cable inside the lcd panel could be reseated to resolve. Opening the tv is one thing, but opening the lcd panel is another, its quite tricky and dust can get in between the layers. Only attempt if you have good disassembly skills and some compressed air to keep the dust out of there. The ribbon cables are very fragile and repairing by reseating is a hopeful but unlikely solution. A new lcd panel costs about as much as a new tv. Might just live with the issue or use as a tv for the kids.
