Question about RCA HD50LPW42 50" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Vertical lines appear on screen...

Hi everyone. Can you please help diagnose a problem I am having with my TV?

My HD50LPW42 works fine when first turned on. After a certain length of time (varies)... the screen has these vertical lines that appear evenly spaced across the screen. They sometimes disappear and reappear without any strange sounds, etc. coming from the TV. All the time, the sound is great without any other problems.

When I power down the TV, the lines continue through the "blue" power off screen.

Any ideas what the problem might me? How do I fix it??

Thanks!

Mark

You have a defective light engine. Contact RCA support. Sometimes they will warranty these even after the 1yr warranty has expired.

I have 5 thin vertical white lines on the screen sound is fine.


It looks like the problem is comming from your LCD chips, they are starting to burn out and that is why you get this lines across your tv set, if you leave it like that the problem is only going to get worst
the lines will get bigger until it finally covers your whole screen you need to replace the OPTICAL BLOCK to fix this problem
good luck hopes this helps

please rate this solution !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Samsung 42" Plasma -Black vertical line when turned on.


It sounds like an Intergrated Circuit (IC) has fried. Even on a good day, this is not something you can attack at home. As a tech (and as an owner of that model samsung), I'd need a map & tools to know what's going on. Your best bet in this situation is to contact Samsung and let them recommend an authorized service center in your area. Sorry I can't be of more help, but this is a rather serious problem.

Vertical color lines


I had the same thing happen to me this morning. I turned on the TV and it had colored vertical lines through the whole screen. I called Sony and they had me unplug the TV for about 15 minutes. This solved the problem. They said the boards just needed to be reset. It fixed the problem and I am happy with my Sony once again.

Grey vertical line appears on screen


I had the same problem with my Lnt4071f. I called tech support and they said it was a faulty panel and the entire set had to be replaced. If you have your warrantly still use it, if not you may just be able to replace the panel, but its expensive.

RCA DLP/HDTV Vertical Lines


This is djb1 who commented above on the vertical lines that have gotten progessively worse. I may have found a potential solution. I unplugged the TV, took the back door off where you replace the lamp, took the lamp out, changed our vacuum from a vacuum to a powerful blower and blew ALL visable dust off anywhere that I could. I paid special attention to the heavy dust that was on the TV blower fan blades and around the mirror. I also held the blower on the outside of the TV on the vents around the lamp door.

After I plugged the TV back in, the lines have disappeared. We watched TV last night for about 2 more hours and the vertical lines never came back. So far this morning, the lines have not come back and it has been a couple hours as well.

It's worth a try. The free solution may be as simple as clearing out all dust. LET'S HOPE IT'S A PERMANENT SOLUTION!!
