    I have the thin static type line at the top and (rarely) bottom of my screen. It does not always happen, but is there at least 50% of the time.

White flickering line across top of screen


Set the screen format using your TV's menu. Do not set the format of the screen using your provider's receiver. I had this prob with a few channels with a dish provider when I set the format with the remote from the dish provider. I picked up the TV's remote, went into the menu, set the format, problem fixed.

Vizio 42 in TV LCD HDTV white line across to of


That white line (usually jagged) is actuallly part of the transmitted picture. However, you are not intended to see it because it is located in what is known as the 5% overscan area. Your TVs today are more than just cable ready... they are a versital, technology filled multimedia display. You can see that line because the screen size or wide mode you are using is intended for 1080p/24 signals. You have 0% overscan with this screen size setting. This allows you to see ALL of the picture, including portions of the picture the broadcaster did not intend for you to see. You can change your screen size using the Wide feature in the Setup menu. See pg.62 of your user manual for details and descriptions of the various wide modes.

Goodman 42" HDMI TV 5 years old has thin lines on the screen


Appears most probably to be a fault in the inbuilt power supply capacitors. Getting them changed once solved my problem. If you opt to change yourself then don't blame anyone if it renders your TV unusable!

Plasma TV moving black and white lines


This is a result of poor conversion of a SD signal on a HD channel.  Go into your settings and adjust the h/v settings to move the line off the screen.  You can do this with a combination of v-position or vsize.

Line accross top of the screen with flashing black and white boxes


Thin white dashes on top of screen is PERFECTLY NORMAL. It is nothing wrong with the TV, it is the broadcast. What you are seeing is the very bottom of the timecode running. It doesn't happen all of the time or all channels. It usually happens with old 4:3 commercials predating "Digital TV." This is mentioned in your Users Manual. You should be able to adjust the horizontal/vertical position in the menu settings.
