A bad connection (solder) or a loose plug or cable someplace---problem with this set is the issue could be inside the front screen or Display Panel as it is called where it cannot be got at--replacing the Display is not cost effective if it is the cause as it costs more than a new set.

SOURCE: 40 inch lcd blue line vertical

The display screen is made of a matrix of elements connected to cables along the side and top. On your unit, some of these many, tiny connections are making contact intermittantly thus losing the elements in that area. These contacts are held in place with just pressure and if that is disturbed, you lose that line of elements. Try squeezing the cabinet of the TV on the outside at the top in the area of the loss and see if that makes a difference. May have to go inside and see if the contact assembly is disturbed or warped or something.
Hope ya fix it!

SOURCE: Insignia(samsung) 50" plasma Vertical red lines

I would take it back. I know from purchasing an Insignia LCD from them a while back, the TV just died after about 4 or 5 months. They ended up offering me another TV or with store credit. I took the store credit and chose another TV. I also did not have a warranty. I was told since it was Insignia (which is a Best Buy house brand) that replacing it was not a problem. Good luck.

The first place to start is with the Main bd. The second cause would be the T-con bd. Have a trained Samsung tech troubleshoot to find out and repair the set.

SOURCE: Vertical lines in picture

The machine is still under warranty from samsung so I would call 1-800-samsung to find the nearest service center. Problem could be caused by a bad main board, bad lvds cable or a defective t/con board or lcd panel.

What is up with my 360 when ever i play it for about 30min it shows green fuzzy lines down the screen of my tv and purple fuzzy lines down my tv screen and after those two happen sometimes it will have red...


well definitely video issues of some sort. if you have a second video cable (or hdmi cable if your unit supports that) give that a try.
*assuming that doesn't work Unfortunately it sounds more likely that it's an issue with the video card inside the xbox. this may be repairable by a professional.
if you have it under warranty i would contact microsoft for a replacement/repair https://myservice.xbox.com/en-US/Pages/Welcome.aspx or call Toll free: (800) 4MY-XBOX

Red lines on Sony KP51HW40 Rear projection TV


Yeah, seen that more times than I shoulda in the last 4 years. The red picture tube has a cathode to heater short. That means it's no good. That red picture tube is no longer availible. But all is not lost. There is a company that rebuilds those tubes reasonably. Most reputable tv shops will know this. The ones I've done cost around $450 out the door. One minor hitch is that with all the shipping involved the job usually takes about three weeks. That can be expidited but then the price goes up.

VIZIO P42hd PS42a plasma Picture has two vertical lines (one red/orange, one blue) going down the right-hand side of the screen. Lines are clearly visible


The panel is almost certainly bad. The only fix for this is to replace the whole panel which would cost more than the whole TV.

Red lines on right hand side of the screen now no picture on right hand side!


I'm not an expert, but I have determined that the vertical bars that are often red, sometimes blue ... and sometimes both ... are related to a bad control board. I've also read that a common fix is to buy a repair kit with includes the ysus, zsus and control boards ... all replaced together. My experience was that after a month or two with the 1.5" wide stripes, that you eventually loose the entire picture and have sound only. MIne comes back, but won't stay working for very long and the stripes are always there (buy used to fade and flicker sometimes). I'm planning on replacing the control board.
