Question about Sharp Aquos LC-42D62U 42 in. LCD HDTV
I'm getting faint dark horizontal lines from top to bottom of my screen after an hour or so of use. These lines remain on screen even if I change inputs (ie from XBox to HD tv to regular cable). If I power off my TV and let it sit for about 20 minutes, these lines disappear until the next time I use the TV extensively. I have a feeling it may be an overheating issue, do these tvs have a cooling system built in? I've tried plugging into various outlets around my apartment but the issue remained. Please note that these lines appear after using any of the inputs, however for regular cable it seems to take longer - any way I can fix this? The lines are not noticable over light backgrounds.
I can tell you right off the bat that is a service issue you will have to take up with sharp. Contact their operational support, they have a quick turnaround with things like that. When you call, they will most likely ask you to take digital pictures of these black lines and have you e-mail the pics to them.
