Most LCD sets use two boards (or one with both in it) for this, one drives half the screen and the other the other half.

Possible bad board or bad connection where the board connected to the panel===that would be the worst case as the display which is called a panel could have a issue inside which is fatal costwise.

My monitor goes half red pin striped and black w/ some visibility


It sounds like you may have connections problem (loose or dirty contacts) between the LCD panel and the logic board, look for that first, worst case will the LCD controller (T-CON) board, which is part of the LCD screen panel assembly.

You must find the "All in one" remote. That will have a "display" button that needs to be pressed. You may just need to go to Radio shak and ask for an old one for a day to do it. Good Luck.

Sound and no picture


Hi, if your getting half a picture AND the other half is black the vertical circuit is failing, either solder is broken or vertical IC needs to be replaced, not a pricey fix, BMW Rider

My Navman S50 has been working fine the other day it decided to show me the safety agreement when switched on then shows half the screen black with navman S50 printed in the black section the other half shows a picture of a pretty womans face looking backwards from a car window.
