We installed this last month & it has worked fine. With the last 3 calls on Skype, we get a wide yellow vertical band in the center of the incoming picture. It has come from 2 locations and on a MAC & a PC. The other party says we come in fine & the video here is fine. Called Logitech & suggested that I uninstall & reinstall Skype - did it & the same result. They have no answer. We have Windows XP
Re: Yellow vertical band at center of incoming video
Looking through a Skype forum thread, there appears to be at least 2 issues. First, for Logitech cam users you can try the following:
- Go to Skype / Tools / Options / Video Settings / Webcam settings / Advanced. The contents of this window will vary depending on the particular model of camera that you have. If there are options for "Low Light Boost" and "Automatic Gain Control", turn them off. Adjust the manual sliders in the window to get reasonable video quality.
This seems to work for some people.
Then there is the more fundamental issue of Skype driver. Here is the link to the thread (http://forum.skype.com/index.php?showtopic=97038) but the essence is that the older the driver the more likely the issue. Even with the latest driver it is not a guaranteed fix, but many people seem to suggest that downloading the latest drivers works for at least some of the time. Clearly Skype have known about this for a while and are dragging their heels sorting it out.

More burned capacitors.. You have a center and sometimes a right and left circuit board. If you have to visit the board more than once in just a few months you will have to call the LG tech. You need to replace one of the boards. I tried the self repair route and nearly ruined the TV. Take it from me ...call the tech.
This sounds like a problem with your actual Skype account and not your physical phone. You can use Skype normally, but "Skype Out" (calling land lines) costs money, and the system doesn't seem to think you have any credit on your account.
1) Check your configuration on the phone and double check the Skype account username is the one you have credit on.
2) Login to Skype on a computer with the same account. Call someone's land line and confirm a call can connect.
If you can't connect to a land line there (but your Skype account shows you have credit), contact Skype support - there's something wrong on their end that they will have to fix.
If you can connect just fine, try clearing and resetting the user account settings on the phone. If it still doesn't work, try connecting it to a different network (go to Starbucks and use their wifi or something).
My 3-year old 52-inch Toshiba flat panel TV (Model # 52RV53U, Serial # AM409000295) developed a display problem (purchased Aug. 2008, manufactured July 2008). Vertical multicolored lines appeared on the screen just left of center. The band of thin vertical bars is 5.5 inches wide. The lines are about 1/16-inch wide. They are stationary, always exactly in same place. They over-ride any other picture on the screen (no transparency). They are there all time even with no video inputs to the TV after the unit is turned on. See picture #1. The TV works well in every other respect, but, obviously, it is annoying to watch the picture with the color band blocking about 1/6 of the picture.

I already swapped out the TCON board with no improvement and replugged the TCON board cables with no improvement.
Most likely it is the flat panel tab bond failure (panel made by Samsung). Further solution updates will be on my Facebook page.
Send this to them so they can properly setup the Audio & Video.
See section A. Skype in the info below to setup the Audio & Video. Also send this to your family
and friends so they have their computer setup properly. Web Camera’s have to be

broadcast on messengers or Skype.
Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for
the Audio and Video to function properly. A.Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/)
set it up as follows:
Go to Tools,
then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone
and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
click on the Video Settings.
camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.
on the bottom of the page click on Save.
The camera and audio should function properly.Your friends and Family will now be able to
see and her to you. B.Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger(http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html
) set it up as follows:
Messenger at the top left and click on it.
go down to Preferences and click on it.
Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to
the computer Audio Card.
go to the Test Audio section and(in blue writing) click on“Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the
How much memory is installed in your computer?
The camera uses quite a bit of your memory to operate properly and would
cause the poor video. Could be other
Issues, but worth checking.
Hope this helps. Bud
Similar problem with an eleven and a half month old LT-40148. Approx. 1 inch vertical banding line on left side of screen on all inputs. After about two weeks, same problem on the right side of the screen.
Fortunately this occurred two weeks prior to the one year warranty expiring.
Called Mits customer service and they referred me to an authorized service center who I happened to have dealt with before.
They picked up the set. The front panel (LCD screen ) had to be replaced. Set was gone for two weeks as parts were not in stock. There was no charge. I hope this screen last more than a year.
If there is no picture behind the stripe and the edges are well-defined, then one of the display driver ICs has failed. Philips displays can be made by several manufacturers - usually Samsung. The ICs are bonded to the flexible ribbon in most cases, and replacement is an expensive specialist job - and in many cases is simply not possible.
A shadow on the picture is much better - usually due to interference.
