Question about Philips 23PF5320 23 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

1 Answer

Horizontal Lines Moving Through Screen

Since connecting a HD-cable box to my TV, I have started to notice dark (possibly green) lines running vertically up the screen. The lines vary in thickness, depending on the program, and are even visible on the black screen when I turn the cable-box off. I have contacted Philips about having the unit repaired, but they have told me that I would need to mail it to Arkansas for replacement. I have read some horror stories about that, so I am reluctant to do it. Any suggestions?

Just a guess. Try to get hold of a different cable box & see if you have the same problem. If so, problem is with cable box.

Green line down left side and geen snow


Horizontal or vertical bars on the screen could be from an ac line interference, adjacent magnetic field, bad input wire connections.....especially HDMI connector cables. A bad HDMI cable causes all kinds of unwanted picture interference. Check the conditon of all connection wires for proper fit and function. Keep in mind the method in which you connect your tv will result how the tv performs. As well this line problem could be a circuit issue too, requiring a technician to look at it.

Dark vertical line(s) on Lcd tv


Most likely it's the LCD panel failure. You can replace the panel if you can find a spare part. But the new panel may cost you as much as to buy a new tv. Hope that will help you.

Toshiba 46In HD Rear projection TV Vertical lines on screen


We also have vertical lines with our JVC 62"... turning it off and letting it cool down is the only solution. For us, we know it's a problem with heat. We simply are wits end on fixing it. added two additional fans, a exterior fan to blow heat away from the back of the tv, pulled everything else away, etc.... Anyway, goodluck.

Dark vertical lines on tv screen


If under warranty then of course use that.
This is a display problem. One solution someone knowledgeable in electronics can try.
This problem can be caused by a bad connection fitting of the flat cables on LCD controller board. Dis-connect the flat cables from the LCD controller(T-CON) and carefully reconnect them. Try the unit before reassembling the back cover. You may have to disconnect/reconnect several times to show improvements if this is the problem.

Thin horizonal line in middle on dark screen


The several thin white lines at the top of the screen is the warning that the vertical output IC is not getting the boost voltage it needs to run correctly. The IC cannot operate for long like that and shorts out inside, which is when the vertical collapses altogether and you get the thin white line through the center of the screen. The good news for your son is that he had nothing to do with that, and it has nothing to do with the cable F connector. The set needs to be serviced by an experienced tech who will restore the boost supply and replace the vertical output IC, and when I do that I charge $75 but techs in your area will vary, so be sure to ask around.
