Question about Flat Panel Televisions
My HDTV has lately started showing a red mist effect on dark areas of the screen from time to time, it is also showing this redness at the top and bottom of the screen when watching wide screen films, where the bars above and below should be black and when switching channels where the old blackness now has a red look about it, any help would be appreciated. thanks

You probably need to replace the backlight. In parts less than 30$. If you know your way around these things, or know someone who does, it's not a super difficult thing to do. You can get a tutorial that's written for monitors here: http://www.inventgeek.com/Projects/shorts/lcdfix.aspx basically the same procedure for an LCD TV. Good luck!

Unfortunally they do not sell replacement parts for westing tv's. They sell the complete module only. Your problem is in the main module. But before i change any parts i would check my antennae or cable connections to make shure everythins is ok in that area

I had the same problem, LG came out and it turned out to be the board that filters out the interference around the screen. I pretty sure that was it, took them 10 mins to fix by replacing a few of the boards inside the screen. Sorry I can't be more specific but its not an unfixable problem, so nothing to worry about.

Hi my name is Eric,
I hope I can help you with your issue ,
If the lines are there on every input then you have a bad panel (screen). The panel is the front screen section, if you could get one a new panel would cost more than a new TV. If the line is only there with the cable box then its just a bad box (I've seen the pace box do this)

There is a part inside
the TV that needs to be replaced. If the TV is under warranty—whether
the original warranty from the manufacture or an extended warranty
purchased with the TV—call the company providing the warranty
coverage and they will arrange to have your TV repaired at little, or
no cost to you.
Since some brands will pay for your repair even if you're out of warranty, especially if they've heard of your problem before and it's a known issue. You should always contact the manufacture first for your full range of options. If they're willing to fix the TV for free, or at a reduced cost to you, let them!
If the TV is out of warranty, and you have the experience and you know what you're doing, you can fix the TV yourself. Purchase the service manual from the manufacture to get started. However, if you've never done anything like this type of repair before and you don't know where to start, I suggest speaking with an experienced TV repair-person.
If you decide to pay for out of warranty repair by a professional repair shop, the total cost will likely be a minimum of $200 parts and labor. However, be warned that the cost could be considerably higher.
I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today!
Please post a comment if you need additional assistance so that I can help you further.
