LG50PC1D fuzzy horizontal lines when tv warm but good when cold.

When TV has been on for a while picture becomes very bad with fuzzy horizontal lines. Picture great when TV is cold (only been on couple of hours) but gradually gets worse as it warms up. Problem not with input as bad picture with inbuilt digital tv, sky tv and wii.

SOURCE: horizontal lines on start up

I get the exact same issue, exepct now it never clears up. I have tried to find someone to come look at it but no one does "house calls" anymore and everyone I call makes it sound so easy to just toss this beast in a car and bring it in. One of the repair techs said the issue sounded like the board had been zapped by a lighting surge...but of course there was no way to be sure unless I brought the set in.

Get the professional, although this won't be an expensive fix... You likely have one or more caps in the vertical circuit that are going bad... A cap acts like a battery in a circuit taking on voltage and releasing it at an even rate. When they go bad their ESR (equivilent series resistance) rises and the cap takes longer to reach it's op temp and work properly...
A tech with an ESR meter will easily find and repair this one... But you'll need to take it in to save the pickup/delivery charges.
Good Luck!

Make sure that there is actualy power going to the AC power source where the TV is plugged in. You can re-set the TV by disconnecting the power for about 10 seconds and then connecting it back again. If the set still does not start it will require service.

If the set is dead it is most likely the main power supply board that failed. The service tech would replace the power supply and also investigate to find the cause of the failure. Sometimes another board could have a failure and cause the power supply to be damaged.

If the set will not start up, it will require shop service. You can call Panasonic tech support to find out the authorised service rep for your area. Check to see if the set is still under warranty. If not, it will be expensive to service.

I have owned an emerson tv for two years now. All of a sudden the picture has become very blurry and white. It is not the cable connection and a DVD is also white and blurry. Even the input channels are...


you must open the back cover of tv, and then things you should do is set "SCREEN" adjustment on the flyback transformer. you must turn it counterclockwise to reduce and decrease the level of screen brightness. turn screen adjustment gradually until the horizontal blanking lines disappear from the screen. and blurred images will be sharp again

Horizontal lines across screen picture going fuzzy in and out and then no picture at all


A horizontal line that rolls from the bottom to the top of the tv could be a Hum Bar. This is from a bad ground either for the house electric system or for the cable system. By code, these grounds are supposed to be connected (bonded) together. In other words, the electrical interference is going through your tv instead of into the ground. Fuzzy picture is usually from low cable signal. This can be due to bad cables, connections, or splitters or problems outside with the drop (cable line outside that runs to the house). Splitters, by design, lower the cable signal (i.e. a 2 way splitter cuts the signal in half). If you have unnecessary splitters you should remove them. If you have more than about 6 or 7 tvs, you may need to add an amplifier.

TV has dim picture


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, it would seem to be heat related and/or a cold solder issue. I doubt very much if any major component is defective, at most probably would be a capacitor in the main B+ line leading to the HOT (horizontal out). But that has to be confirmed visually and/or a voltage check on initial power up. best approach would be to open the rear, do some voltage measurements before warm up and after warmed up. Compare these readings and reference the Service Manual. Of course special care and attention since you would be working on a live set.

Check and perform preliminary visual or necessary inspection. Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

I have a phillips tube t.v that shows a wavy horizontal line


If the set works fine intermittently it may be a loose connection or a bad solder joint. More likely the later. Heat will sometimes make a cold or broken solder joint work. If this changes when you lightly tap on the side of the TV you have a bad connection of sorts inside. These repairs can be expensive unless you find a good repair person.
The syncronizing signals in TV's (keeping the picture locked in) are around the high voltage transformer which is usually the heaviest component attached to the circuit boards. It's stressful over time and I've seen the solder connections crack and become intermittent.

After a household power blips during bad weather, we have horizontal lines ....


Unfortunately there isn't any way to repair your tv as the magnet has distorted the tube that is in the tv and with CRT becoming obsolete the repair is likely to be very costly so probably your chaepest option is to buy a new tv .

Check for leaky capacitors in the vertical section of the TV or cold solder joints.
I would also check in the power supply.
Good Luck.
