Horizontal lines on start up

    yea i dont know about lightning since we have ours on a surge protector. i was figuring it might be a transformer getting weaker with time but i dont even know if thoes are in the set.im thinking it has to be a power supply problem because the picture is great once the set has been on for awhile.

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.

46in Vizio LCD HDTV distorted black picture when tv is turned on


Hi There are three things that can cause this problem. Your lcd screen, t-con board or the signal board. Most likelly in your case since you say it's only half the screen it's going to be your t-con board. You can try removing it and cleaning all the contacts and replacing it see if that helps. If that doesn't help then replace it. If that does not solve it then it's going to be your screen.

If your TV looks 3D, warped, or distorted it likely has a convergenge problem.
If however it just looks dull, washed out, redish, greenish, or blueish or if it looks like objects on the screen have halos the fluid in the lens has soured.
You can search google for parts or you can get the parts with repair instructions from sites such as www.TvRepairKits.com

You have vertical output problems.There is distortion at the top because of a faulty vert. output i.c. or a faulty electrolytic capacitor.It's possible there may be a problem at your yoke also.It needs a professional repair.

One thing you should not do with electronic devices which have a start up proceedure is to turn the power off, and then on again without a wait of about five minutes. Some equipment manuals warn you about this, and specify a longer period. The start-up has to have time to reset. It will be more likely to reset if you do not leave it on standby, and even unplug it. In your TVs case you need to describe the distorted picture as it may give a clue to a fault, or incorrect start-up. The horizontal line indicates the frame timebase had stopped working. No picture could be a fuse blown inside the set, or a timed cutout which may reset after a time. Try after several hours to see if it comes on. If it is just the frame timebase (vertical) it is worth repairing.

Green screen with almost horizontal zigzag lines


Is good that you hit it and it reacts,very likely you have loose conections in different places but for the distorted picture you need to check the horizontal driver transformer and flyback after that is corrected you need to check the complete chassis for loose conections.Take your time.Good luck.
