Question about Sanyo PDP-42H2W 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

1 Answer

Blue vertical lines

Blue lines just started to show up on the screen, at first they would come and go, but now they always come up after the television has been on for about 2 hours. Does it have to be with the heat produced by the screen? I haven't disconnected anything from the TV since I first installed it, I purchased it about 10 months ago. Don't use it for playing video games just satellite and DVDs.

    We just set up a new Sharp LC46D92U and it worked perfectly for about three hours. Then a thin vertical blue line developed originating just left of center and extending from the bottom to half way up the screen. Sometimes the blue line is constant and sometimes it comes and goes. Please advise. I have written Sharp and my seller today (12-07-07) and am waiting for a response. Any ideas?

Check with the manufacturer, this sounds like a problem with decoding, or maybe the screen driver. as this is 10 months old it should still be within Manufacturer's warranty and they should sort it out for free :)

My screen suddenly shows blue and pink vertical lines

Sounds like the gel has dribbled down into the workings and has effected the circuitry. Time for a new monitor. More importantly, why the heck were you using a liquid/gel sanitiser on electrical equipment. Use dedicated screen wipes

Blue vertical line at reght side of screen

This is normal. Depending on what you have connected to it the lines could be white, black and white specs, or green. Just mode will show the entire picture event the parts that aren't supposed to be seen. I would not recommend that setting. Full is the best mode if you want to see the entire picture in the correct ratio.

Sony KF50WE610 Vertical Blue Lines Across Screen

the vertical blue lines indicate some interference from other electronic gadgets near your tv. it started showing up on my sony grand wega when i installed my wireless modem. i almost ordered a new rear projection lamp costing over $100 but decided to experiment. i first moved my desk computer farther away from the tv then isolated the wireless modem router by placing it inside a small glass - the vertical blue lines became lighter in color so i dedided to find another small glass that fit inside the first glass container then put the router in the double glass - no more blue lines and my wireless modem router still works.
do some deductive thinking to figure out what's messing up your tv and isolate the interference.
good luck!
