Question about Vizio L32 32 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Pink line through tv screen

We have a thin pink line running down our 32 inch wharfedale lcd tv. This has been there for as long as I can remember and it was past the warranty when I started using it so I think it could of maybe had a bang or somebody maybe using a console on it has caused the problem? The line is not always visual and occurs the most when the screen is on but the screen is black, i.e when the tv is on but there is no freeview box on so it is blank. Thanks.

SOURCE: Vertical Red Line

I had a bright red 1" wide vertical line on the right side of my Vizio P42HDE as well as an equivalent Green line on the left. Sometimes a Blue line would appear adjacent to the red line. Had this TV sinc Oct. 2005. Based on internet research, I opted to purchase an LG 6871QCH060Q board (upgrade to the 6871QCH038A and the 6871QCH038C). Picked the board up on Ebay for $100 + $10 shipping from ShopJimmy parts.

From start to finish, this took about 2 hours to repair. Tons of screws to remove. Took me a while to figure out that the video connection unit in the back is completely modular and needs to be removed before attempting to remove the back cover. Once the cover was removed, I was surprised that I could not see where the replacement board was located. Turns out, you have to go one level deeper and remove the audio board and digital board followed by metal bracket/cover. Once removing the metal cover, the bad 6871QCH038A board was visible. A couple of zip ties will need to be cut as well as several cable connections to get to the 6871QCH038A board. Replaced the board with the 6871QCH060Q upgrade. Make sure to keep the sticky foam rubber isolation pieces and adhere them to the new board. It did take some time to figure out how to disconnect and reconnect all the various types of cable connections. Just take your time. The power cable connector for the 6871QCH060Q board is in a different location, thus I had to reroute the cable. Reassembled and only had 2 unused screws left!

TV workd great. Lines are gone. Have a little burn-in going on where the red line appeared, but still better than forking over $800 for a new 42" LCD 1080P TV. Hope to get a couple of more years out of this Vizio.

One line I found has a general example of LG/Vizio repair manual. Not exact, but close enough...http://www.scribd.com/doc/7580885/LG-TV-Plasma-Training-Manual

LG 32LH30 LCD TV Problem


IMO Seriously for $119 it's not worth it.
However, it does sound like a capacitor problem
If you are "Serious" about fixing I'd find a TV repair Forum.
Else I'd go here and get a new one.

Hello williskathy2,

This might be a problem with the circuitry of the screen driver. what happens is the one of the drivers in the display matrix IC goes bad and it can not fire that one string of LCD elements, and this creates the line that you see. Since the line is pink, I would say that the driver is incorrectly firing the string of LCD elements. I would suggest that if you have a background in electronics you check the voltage levels on the display driver IC and the connection to the screen. If you do not have a background in electronics I would suggest that you have a qualified TV technician fix your problem.

I hope this helps,
