Vertical Red Lines

Hello Guys, I have this Akai 42" TV that has thin vertical red lines on the screen when it is first turned on. The lines are visible depending on the video that is playing, and will stay on for about half to an hour. They will then seem to disappear. But when the TV cools down and it is turned back on, the red lines appear once again. Any of you have any clue on how to completely get rid of the lines? Thanks in advance for your help. Mike

    I have a similar problem, however a little different. My plasma has a regular picture on one half of the screen, the other half is completely black with vertical lines running through it. These lines vary in number each time the set is turned on. They tell me the set is out of warrantly now, althoughstill financed. Not sure how to resolve this problem.

    I have a Akai projection tv and it has a red line down the center of the screen that looks as if someone poured paint down it, it also has a green and red dot neer the line.





    Thanks Bryan

    I have a thin vertical red line about 12" from the right side of the TV. It doesn't appear when the colors are dark but is most noticeable when the screen is light blue.

    I'am about to take the back off and look for a displaced circuit plug. Any other ideas?

Vertical red lines on screen


LCD correct?

There are 2 types of lines they may be showing, both requiring the replacement of the LCD Panel.

1. Delamination Lines- they are usually multiple vertical lines that do NOT flow from the top to bottom of the screen. Looks look water dripped down or something similar

2. Single/Multiple Vertical lines - This is normally 1 or maybe a few solid vertical lines that travel from Top to bottom. I belive in some cases they may only travel to the screen center.

In both cases, this will always show when the TV is ON. Even if there is no signal being input to the TV. There are other possibilities but these can be the most common. Both require a new panel.
