I have a dark shadow down one side of the screen

On the right hand side of the screen there is a dark shadow that it about 8 inches wide running down the whole side of the screen. Research sugggests that it is something to do with mirrors coming loose inside the'tunnel' Everyone tells me that it is too expensive to get fixed. I have changed the bulb without any improvement.

    I have the exact same problem but the line seems to keep getting bigger and bigger. Is it really that expensive to fix?

I have the same TV and it's doing the same thing but on the left side. We had a local repair shop come out to diagnose and he told us this is the result of a loose ribbon cable on the LCD panel that would require replacement of the LCD panel - cost would be about the same as a new TV.

I have a dark line on the right side of the screen


If there is a dark line with two sources such as a dvd player, and a game system, or a cable box, then the tv will need to be repaired. If not from two sources then the issue is with the only source causing the black line.

Optoma RD-50 DLP has dark vertical shadow on right side of screen


turning off the main can be very harmful to rear projectors if you dont wait for the cooling off period, for instance when you turn off the tv from the remote, the fans inside are still on in order to dissipate the heat given out by the lamp. as a result some of the lens inside the engine may have burns-in caused by excess of heat.thus leading to shadows on the screen.

hope this helps

please rate me!

A bar code stripe on the right side of the copy.


i'm not sure if you're talking about a solid black band or a bunch of little stripes running down page. does it happen when you run an internal report or only on copies? if its a black solid band, check and make sure the bluish colored tab on top of the drum is all the way to the left side. if its a group of fine lines, depending on whether it happens on internal reports or not, it could be the drum is going bad or you may have a bad scanner. write back with a little more info if this suggestion doesn't work.

good luck,

Lg 37 inch lcd has a dark shadow vertical line down left side of screen about 1cm wide and does not seem to go right to the top or bottom and is slightly wavey


reseat the LVDS cable inside the set. this is the multi wired connector that connects the main board to the panel. if that doesn;t solve your problem replace the main board. if you turn off the set and you can still see it in the screen it is the panel.

Shadow down right side of screen on a toshiba 44NHM84 44" DLP television


shadows at the bottom of the screen sound like moisture that was "wicked up" between the screen layers and dryed out leaving a stain. DO NOT get these screens wet, use nothing but a damp soft cloth; just a few drops of water running down the screen can cause a fairly large stain. Some people have suggested that they may be professionally cleaned, but the risk of damage is too great on the user level.
