If this is a straight white line you may have a vertical collapse. You need to either solder bad connections at Vertical IC or change the vertical IC

    If you are referring to the end of the tube, no that is not it. Stay away from the tube, there is high voltage. charged there. Also, if you break that lamp looking thing at the end of tube the tv is done. Vertical IC is on the circuit board. It is a chip or intergrated circuit that is usually screwed down to a heat sink (a piece of metal). A tech should be able to find & evaluate this easily for you. Also shouldn't be very expensive.

Straight line in the middle of monitor. picture srunct


This is called vertical collapse and the most common cause is a failure of the vertical IC. If you can update this with the model number, I should be able to provide the part numbers and costs for the parts required to fix this. Also, if you intend to repair this yourself, please indicate thtat as well. The parts will cost around $20 or so.

The screen on my laptop flickers colors and there are lines running through through middle red blue green ect.. it does work on an external monitor tho could this be the lcd inverter


Lines on the screen means the LCD is bad and needs to be replaced. The inverter just makes sure the lcd turns on. That wouldn't cause lines on the screen.

I have a zenith model#sj7504rk.the picture went to a straight line across the middle of the screen.the line is about a 8th inch thick.I can still see color moving in the line.how can i fix this?


The vertical deflection has failled. It will require service. Get a firm estimate for the repairs. The parts cost should not be too bad, but labor MIGHT make it uneconomical to repair.

Zenith model D52wlcd projection TV has been saying replace lamp for several weeks. Has had a small pink spot in middle of screen. Now full screen is pink. is this a lamp problem or just DOA?


The Lamp will no cause any color distortion. The "Replace Lamp" message comes up after a certain amount of hours after watching the TV because the lamp only last a certain number of hours before needing a replacement one.

It sounds like a light engine problem. There is no quick fix, you need to replace the whole light engine which is very costly (light engines usually run at least $500) and time consuming (need to take whole TV apart to replace part).

I have a blue haze across the bottom of the tv screen. About 1 1/2 inches tall. what causes this?


Go to the Zenith repair site. This has been resolved in a lawsuit. Zenith will fix it free of charge through 7/1/2010. The shop just picked my up to replace the light engine free of charge. Call 1-800-228-1757, have your model number and serial number, and where you purchased it. Here's the neat thing-the question I asked is "have they fixed the problem with the light engine, or is it going to keep going bad?" If happens again (blue lines/spots) before 7/1/2010, they'll replace the TV with a new and different TV of equal value!

Screen is black except for a colored line thru the middle of the screen. Tv is a 10 yr old Zenith. is this probably the picture tube?


Nope. You have a vertical problem. Please post the model number from the back of the set and I'll provide you with the part numbers and cost. I can also give you more details on what to change and how.

Thanks,

The key lock is a function that can only be reset with a remote. Go to www.zenith.com and under "support" you'll find product manuals. You can enter your model number and get the manual, but once "key lock" is on, you'll need a remote to change it.

There is 2 strong and 1 light Vertical lines in the middle of the LCD displayed in my monitor


If the lines run from the top to the bottom of the screen and are perfectly straight then your panel is dying and not worth the effort to repair.
Having said that, you maybe lucky enough to find another monitor cheaply and just swap the panels.

Hope it helps =)
