The SONY LCD TV is 2 1/2 Years old about 6 months ago I noticed a very light pink 3in vertical line, now after the tv is on for about 30 to 45 min the line is black. does any one have a clue how to fix...


Hello,
The line or dots on an LCD screen are because of dead pixels and tolerable upto a certain limit as per policy of the manufacturer. But line is not permissible and should be changed in the warranty support. The isssue you are reporting is the vertical line and the the film is to be changed. So if the set is not in warranty it might be a big expense as there is no way to fix it at home.
Thanks

Can be a problem with a misplaced connection, more likely the Ysus card to be replaced.

Sharp tv model lc-26sh12u very low vulumn even at max volumn control


Yes, don't buy SHARP, problem solved! SHARP is the worst brand of LCD TV. I had to bring my brand new SHARP TV in for repair within 8 months of buying it brand new, and of course it was no longer under the 90 day labor warranty. Also, every person I know who has a SHARP TV has issues with volume and eventually end up with a black vertical line along the side of the screen within 1 to 2 years. I highly reccomend SONY, PANASONIC, even SAMSUNG, LG or VIZIO. Heck, I'd go with Toshiba or Phillips before I'd ever buy anything SHARP again I was so annoyed with their customer service.

You will definately want to call LG and have them refer you to an auth. service center for warranty repair. This is either a failed scan bd or mayber even a bad plasma panel and there is nothing simple for a problem as you describe.

BLUE VERTICAL LINE


The address module that is at the bottom of the PDP in that location is the suspect and the cheapest repair. There is usually 3 to 4 modules at the bottom of the PDP and each one addresses information vertically. If it were just one pixe wide then the PDP would be bad.
