Well my friend, first try to set the color and tint lower as soon as is possible, if not you will need a new bulb for sure, and that is not cheap.
This problem has many causes, the main one is on the fly back that is over exited (screen presset), just twist it a little bit at first to see the reaction (with the tv on) , then set it at a lower gain but i recommend that if you don't have many skills don't attempt to adjust it because this components is a voltage elevator-transformer and handles a couple of kilo-volts, that makes it dangerous for you and for the screen. WARNING!! if you hear a light buzz better don't open the tv, the fly back has a leakage and you don't want those kilo-volts on your hand, you will survive, but is very bad experience.

if that doesn't correct the problem let us know to guide you to te process

Lightning struck and now no picture on my tv- sound works tho


I think the digital input selector section has got affected. I suggest it is better to refer it to a qualified service technician, since the back cover has to be opened for investigation.

My LG TV has suddenly become darker all across the bottom of the screen (10cm strip) it still has colour but is darker. In left hand corner it is considerably darker and depending on what you are watching...


Hi; your TV has burn screen or traces.it comes from one image left on the screen for too long, it can get burned into the screen, making it visible at all times. You can actually eliminate most screen burns with the use of a PC computer and a black and white screen saver. This trick eliminates screen burn after a period of several minutes because the black and white screens flash quickly, removing all traces of color from the screen. This will eventually eliminate any burned images on the LCD screen. you can do it by creating a DVD picture slide with only black and white image. you can use a computer to make DVD picture slide first go to paint brush and draw only white then save as white.jpg. second burn it into nero or other dvd burner third play it to your DVD player connected to you LCD TV.it has to be played in full screen let the white image display on your HDTV for several hours or even overnight. It should remove any burned-in images or ghosts. hope this help...............
thanks....

Dynex Flat Screen 22" w/DVD


When the picture goes out, try to open and access the TVs menu using the Dynex remote. if the menu fails to open up you can bet there is a problem with the backlight on the TV. Letting the TV rest and then it working again indicates heat as the source of the problem. Check to see if your still in your 1yr warranty or if you have a protection plan at best buy, the TV needs help.

If the Menu were to still open, you can blame your cable/satellite set top box.

Picture is frozen onto the screen. Tried powering off tv and cable box that did not work. Next unplugged TV and that did not work


Sounds like a burn in, this is common when some still image is left on the tv screen for sometime, the only hope is to get to a white screen or static screen and let set for awhile, like the old days when you didn't have cable or any input and the tv just frowns.

Westinghouse HD Flat Screen 1080Pure TV - Shadows


Image burn can be permanent if the image was left on for a long period of time. You can try a pure white screen to balance the screen out. They sell DVDs online that have white screen and other screen correcting images to try an correct the damage done to your panel. here is one linked plasma or LCD both can burn.
best of luck

How do I get the picture to fit the screen-the sides needs to come in a little.


If your remote has a "zoom" or "aspect ratio" button, then you'll want to press it a couple of times until the picture is the right size for your tv. If your remote doesn't have a button like this, the tv or device (vcr, dvd, cable, etc) menu should have a place to change this. I hope this helps, and good luck! Sincerely, Der Strom

Burned image on comp 1 chanel


When an image is burnt in to screen it is always there you just dont see it when you watch tv because of the changing video. On some sets you can burn the image out by using a all white screen, from a signal generator or from the service menu, turning the brightness all the way up and letting it play for 24 hours. Here are some websites that have software that is supposed to erase burn-in images, but you would have to hook tv to a computer, unless it can be copied to a dvd and played through a DVD player. Have not used it myself so not sure how or if it works. Be careful not to cause any more damage to screen. A new screen can cost a few hundred to over a thousand dollars to replace. Set should be taken to a panasonic repair shop to try burning it out with white screen approach, so if they damage it they have to fix it.

Black end "stripes" on non-HD images on LN-2341W


Arte you using a cable provider? if so you should be able to adjust it to a wide screen or stretch, most cable providers are supposed to apply the settings when installing the box, so that the screen will auto fit your set, otherwise you will get image retention
