    I guess they are pixel thin. You can see them in the menu.The two dark bands in the lower third of the monitor appear to be interlaced and missing one of the fields....

Pixel thin are almost always the lcd panel. you could try opening the tv an reseating (un hook and rehook) the cables that go to the screen. there is a board at the top of the back of lcd panel that drives the video. it has connections in and out that i would reseat. if this doesn't resolve, that board could be bad but unlikely. most likely needs a new panel, sorry for the news. :(

I have a 60 inch sony tv that have a red flashing on the lower left side,no picture when I turn it on and there is ringing sound.


Those blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.

LG 55LM4600-UC LED TV I have was squirted with a squirt gun. Would replacing the t-con board fix this tv? Please read further details.


when water shorts out something it overloads a lot of other components so the best advice is to take it in for a proper diagnosis.
you just replace a board but another board is damaged it might just blow the board you replaced and that would prove nothing

Have a dark band horizontally across vizio tv. Appears to be a backlight, but not sure how to fix


Could be a bad CCFL lamp, if the set usess CCFL back-light system. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced. To some models of sets, all these section circuit will be integrated at its main board. If this is the case, you have to replace the main board.

WHY DID MY VIORE SCREEN RESIZE TO SMALLER SCREEN


Screen size depends on the broadcast signals aspect ratio, the TV adjusts for that automatically, the picture can have no bands or be banded top and bottom or on both sides.
