Dark Shadow on TV

Hi, Our JVC Plasma TV has on the left hand side of the screen developed a dark background shadow in the bottom left corner along with dark horizontal lines from left the right spanning to the middle of the screen just above the shadow.  These lines and shadow are permanently there and more visible dependent on brightness and colour of the program which is showing on the TV.  We bought this TV in December 2005

If you can fix it by yourself, there is a problem in horizontal circuit panel, you need to check that in series because the part appear visbly good but when tested by the exact tester you register busted. that should be replaced immediately. Check also the vertical panel parts of the circuit. but if hard you do the job you may consult the service center of your TV or the vendor of the TV.

ps. please don't rate me if you are not convince of my suggestion.

best regards, melnavz

Vizio lcd flatpanel tv with dark background

If half screen is affected it will be either a board (LCD and Plasma have different names) but in those one board drives each side of the screen unit--worst case is the display panel itself which is fatal from a cost point of view.

Dark run looking spot of screen

Probably a bad backlight tube. It would look like a darkish about 1" (2.5cm) wide streak running near to horizontal part or all the way across screen.

I would check for dust particles before I attempted any type of repair on the unit.

Dust particles will appear as dark spots that are larger than the size of an individual pixel. It must first be determined if the particle(s) are on the LCD panels or the screen.
