Just installed a new geforce gt 640 video card and drivers and now i have a red tinted screen with vertical lines


The card may not be set into the slot properly. Make certain the computer is OFF when you check the interior of the computer case. Crossing the tangs (small flat pins on the board) can damage the controller, so be careful when inserting or pulling it out. Press down firmly on the top of the card and seat the card so it won't move side to side. Reattach your Computer Monitor cable in the correct position and screw down the attachments to make a positive connection. Check the Monitor and see if the Cable is well attached also. Start up and see if that fixted the problem. If not the Controller is defective.

Vertical lines on screen regardless of input chosen


Unfortunately this will be a fault with the screen itself & would need to be replaced. There is a slught possibility the LVDS connector that goes from the mian signal board to the screen may have a poor contact. To check this you would need to remove the rear cover & look for a flat cable connector that sits into a socket located in the upper centre of the screen. This usually has a clip on either side of the connector to release it. If you give the contacts a wipe to clean them & then carefully re-connect the cable it may cure the problem, only a small percentage of the time will this be the problem in most cases it is a new screen required.

Red vertical line down right side of the screen


hi

I think your TV have a trouble inside lcd panel
the controller board contains driver IC. Deffective driver IC can cause of line display.

Three reasons why one vertical line accross screen can happen in LCD;

1.The missing signal from the controller IC to
LCD driver.
2. LCD driver IC itself defective
3. Dry contact in the tape carrier package.

Use masking or electrical tape to mark it where the line was located. press it if the line back to normal but when release your hand came back i think it was intermittent. Open the LCD panel

Convergence lines are SLANTED. Red line is above


Your TV most likely a convergence failure. ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem


  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses. Its a fairly easy DIY job or you can call in a pro. If you want to do the repair yourself check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, email/phone support, etc.

did you check the six 3.5 pico fuses that are next to the ICs? They will often be open ( blown) when the ICs fail. Also check the two 5 amp IC protectors on the G board as those protect the two ICs so its possible they have blown also a 5 amp pico can be substituted for the two IC protectors.

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.
