Lines on my screen

The picture on my screen has vertical lines running down it.  The lines periodically become more and less visible.  The picture is especially bad when I try to watch a dvd.  What could be the problem and how much should it cost to repair?

I have green vertical squiggles lines over whole screen

possibly the DMD chip goes bad, you can try to disassemble your tv, and take out the DMD chip, when carefully inspect its mirror, whether you found any lines or white pots in it.

if it had lines or white pots, you have to replace it.

Three coloured lines appered on the screen - no picture

If there is no picture and 3 vertical lines in the center of the screen, stop. Turn off TV. You have no horizontal deflection happening. Lines will burn into crts and be permanently visible after repair.

No horizontal deflection is caused by Horizontal sweep circuit failure, maybe flyback transformer and associated components. More than a simple do-it-yourself repair.

Vertical almost clear lines running systematicly across the scree

Hello rockfordcam,

These lines are called retrace lines they are caused when the blanking pulse is insufficient to turn off the current to the CRTs (guns) during the retrace period (the time when the CRTs internal electron gun is returning to the start position after "painting" the picture on the screen). Since this is a signal problem, it will require troubleshooting to figure out why This is occurring. If you do not have a background in electronics and a working knowledge of TVs I would suggest that you have a qualified TV technician examine and repair this TV for you.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Samsung Plasma ps-42s5h has two black lines running vertical with green strip in the middle

Ok we have to resolve the extent of the problem before diagnosing it. Does the black line/green bar show on all inputs and the tuner? Is it visible in the OSD (on screen display)? if yes to all of these questions, it could be a panel drive problem or a bad plasma panel. A picture would help diagnosis
