Vertical black line down centre of screen

Line is always in the same place on the screen and is more prominent on some channels than others (particularly sky sports).It is not a thick line,in fact on some stations it is quite faint,but it is always there in the same position and is very annoying

    We have a Toshiba Regza 47" lcd hdtv for a year....several months ago a vertical black line appeared on the right side approx 6 inches from the frame edge. Is this a problem with this particular model with Toshiba? Any feedback would be appreciated...Thank you...E. Connell, Lakeland, Fla wecon163@tampabay.rr.com

    I`ve got the same tv and the same problem, dont think its to do with channels, but how dark the picture is. Can only see the vertical line down the centre of the tv when the picture is light colour eg sky, light blue sea etc

    I also have a vertical line down the middle of my Toshiba Regza 42" LCD screen. I called Toshiba and they said this was the first one they had heard of. They said it was likely the source of the signal, however, it appears on the screen from the satellite box with a monster cable, a HD DVD player with a highend HDMI cable, as well as multliple gaming consoles. Regardless to say that I'm very dissapointed and will not buy a toshiba again.

    We had the same problem on a Regza 3030D 42" and reported it to Toshiba UK Customer Services. They arranged for a new TV to be sent out and replaced ours at no additional cost. Their service was first class.

A vertical line could indicate a faulty lower scan (long skinny boards along the bottom of the set) board, a faulty lower scan connection to the screen or a bad screen altogether!

I have a panasonic 48 inch plasma TV which has developed a fault. There is a yellow line down the centre of the screen on all channels. Is the TV knackered?


Hello,

IF YOU HAVE A SOLID BLACK LINE RUNNING VERTICALLY THEN YOU HAVE A FAULTY MATRIX INVERTER. IF CENTRAL THE MAIN VERTICAL INVERTER NEEDS CHANGED. LEFT = LEFT VERTICAL INVERTER RIGHT=RIGHT.........

ANOTHER WAY TO GET THIS FAULT IS WORN OR DAMAGED RIBBON/PLASTIC GOING FROM THE SCREEN MATRIX TO THE INVERTER
Hope this will help in solving the problem.....

I HAVE THREE BLACK LINES AND A YELLOW VERTICAL LINE DOWN THE CENTRE OF MY SAMSUNG 50" PLASMA TV. ONLY 10 MONTHS OLD! WHAT CAN I DO?


The TV should be still under warranty. Most of the flat panel TVs come with a one year warranty from the manufacture. I wouldn't mess with the to void the warranty.
The problem most likely is the buffer/scan boards on the bottom connected to the screen. It controls the vertical image on the screen. The other possibility is the plasma display panel is bad.
Go the warranty route first. This may get expensive to fix.

Appears a black line vertically on the screen


hi all .ive had the same problem,a thick black line down screen.sometimes it flickers from top to bottom and other permantly in view.but i have solved it.forget your ic boards and taking apart tv.have you got either a ps3 or wii connected to tv.if so unplug power lead from socket and relocate in seperate socket.make sure the lead is completely free of any other leads and you might just find this works.i think the power lead creates some sort of frequency that the tv picks up .good luck hope it works

There are two boards at the bottom of the set connected to the panel. Follow the black line to the boards(it will be inline with one or the other) either that board is bad or the panel itself is bad . The boards do not meet exactly in the middle.

Vertical white line down centre of Soniq PT42SH plasma TV.


One of your "X" buffer boards is defective. In Panasonic plasma tv's they are located at the bootom of the set and connect directly to the plasma diplay panel via a thin ribbon cable. The board you want to replace will be directly in line with the discolored vertival line in the picture. The part number is on the circuit board and usualy starts with "tnp..." or "txp..."
