    Have you already tried cleaning the lens with a soft cloth or blowing it clean with canned air?

Have you tried to pixel map the camera, It is a menu setting option probably in the wrench 2 tab of the camera menu. This will try to fix any information with the CCD chip inside the camera that controls image processing. If you run this function and it still shows the red line then it may be that you need to send the camera in for repair to have that CCD chip replaced.

A maroon line running from top of screen to the bottom


Hello; The width of the line means everything. If the line is razor thin, meaning one pixel wide, this is is very likely a bad LCD panel ( costs more than the TV sold for ). If the line is much wider say 1/2" give or take, the problem is the LCD controller or LCD timing ( same thing ) PCB. Much more less expensive! John

Vertical red line through screen


This is a problem within the screen, probably the connection from the internal ribbon connector to the display. Unfortunatly the only way to repair this is to have the screen replaced.

Line in my lc screen


A line from top to bottom or side to side is a dead or failed pixel sensor. There are hundreds of pixel sensors at the edges of the screen, when one fails it causes a line, the line can be red, blue, white, or black. Unfortunately, there is no way of repairing the line, other that replacing the screen.
