I get a strip about 4-5 inches of fine lines at the top of the screen

I get a strip of fine lines along the top of the screen. Not all the time but most of the time. I was in a restaurant the other day and the tv there had exactly the same problem.

What you are experiencing is called “vertical fold-over” the vertical size of the picture is too big on the top and is folding over, causing retrace lines to show on the screen. The reason why it comes and goes is because it is caused by a leaky cap in the vertical circuit.
Replacing this capacitor will fix the problem, finding it is another.
If you are handy with a soldering iron and would like to attempt the repair. I will try to help you.
Let me know.

Sony plasma tv was working fine, now there is a large black strip going from the top of the screen to the bottom, about six inches long, where it only displays a black strip.


Post your problem in the right category with your model listed if the category doesn't already exist, so you can get relevant feedback.  As it is, clearly your TV got its connection along that column interrupted; carefully seek to clean and dry whatever fluid fell down the screen into the interface....
