    I have exactly the same problem. I've been searching for solutions on this but I'm glad I'm not the only one who had this problem.

    Seehttp://kwkhong.blogspot.com/. I've posted the pictures online on my TV.

    I hope somebody can help. BTW, I've had the PDP replaced before and the problem came back after a while. I suspected that it could be the heat coming out of the panel which makes the contrast uneven or maybe perhaps it's the power supply. I'm guessing anyway.

I have had the very same problem, I contacted LG who in turn gave me a website list to contact a repairer in Australia (http://au.lgservice.com) and after the service personnel came out to inspect it, it is today being carried away to get a whole new screen etc placed in the existing surround.  Apparently it is a problem that needs to be replaced.If it is under warranty, I suggest going to the LG site.

cheers

    I have had the very same problem, I contacted LG via email on their website, who in turn gave me the LG website list to contact a repairer in Australia (http://au.lgservice.com). After the service personnel came out to inspect it, it has been carried away to get a replacement display unit and screen placed in the existing surround. Apparently it is a problem that needs to be replaced. If it is under warranty worth sorting out now, as repairer told me the replacement will cost more than the price I first bought the tv for. I suggest going to the LG site.



    NB: Yesterday my tv came back from repairer with replacement PDP module (Plasma display Panel), and VGA.It looks better, plus I have a 12 month warranty on the PDP with the repairer, was told that this repair would have cost up to $1800 to replace.. if under warranty best to do it as it is an LG problem



    cheers

Have a block across the top fifth of the screen that is just dark black lines, and the rest of the top half has some kind of fuzzy interference. The bottom half of the picture is fine.

Thin curved lines in sony widescreen


Those sound like what is called "scan lines" and are the result of the way the picture is "drawn" on the face of the screen. Something in the set is allowing too much drive to the screen, as these are usually suppressed during normal operation...accordianman
