You most likely have a defective optical engine. these usually become defective around the time the lamp needs to be replaced but not in every case.

I have a Dynex 32 LCD that I can only see the top half of the picture, the bottom half/40% looks like rainbow lines. What are the possible problems and how do I fix it.


Unfortunately what you have is a fried screen. Toss it at the city dump and get a new TV. Wallmart has 36 and 45 inch TV's for under 300 dollars
Good luck

Strange rainbow.reenish type effect


Did you notice any better picture when you play a movie on a DVD player or using a flashdrive on this TV? Is the picture quality better? Or is it the same? Try to check another cable connection or try to play TV channel thru internet. The last option in this case is to show a TV mechanic for he would better understand which part to order.

My son was bouncing a small ball against the screen and then it went to looking like a rainbow. Would this be the picture tube?


He may have caused some type of damage to the picture tube, but usually rainbow effects happen when magnets are present. Perhaps the ball became charged with a large amount of static, which then discharged across the tube, damaging the controlling circuits.

Video distortion


You need to take your tv in and have the picture deflector re-aligned.  This doesn't cost much, My dad had to do that to his a few months ago and it cost 30 bucks.

    Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-36HS500 36" TV - Bowed Picture


    it sounds like a convergence adjustment problem. If you hava book on the tv still read it, and it will tell you what to do, other wise, look for a convergence button on the front of your tv, and take the remote and push menu to bring up setup, and go convergence adjustment click it and hit the conv. button on the front of the screen. there should be to lines going vertical and horizontal, these are the limes you adjust with your remote, you have to adjust the red and blue, the tv should blink to let you know which color you are on. when you have them lined up right the line will be perfectly white. hope this helps
