Re: blue line in the middle of my tv

I had the same problem and called Hitachi. They were not very warm about the problem. I called back and got a different person and they put my info in there system and had me call the Hitachi authorized dealer that does the repair. Had the repair person come to my house and they called Hitachi and they are sending a new Light Engine as long as I pay for the Labor $325.00.
Be persistant with them as they now they have a problem but do not want to recall it do to labor cost.

Luxor lux0140001B/01 1 week old picture has top half with a grey see through screen

If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following
symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can
examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life
of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.

Sorry, you can try reconnecting connectors on T-con board (small rectangle board at top center under metal shield)if you are lucky, but it is likely a panel failure. It won't hurt to watch it as it is, if it doesn't bother you

Vertical line on side of LCD TV

Modern televisions have screens divided into sections. Each section controls all the rows in its area, and it is controlled by its own video separate video driver. If you are missing a line in a section, then a problem has occurred with the driver board in that area. It will be pretty expensive to fix, I hope your warranty has not just expired!

Both sound like bad LCD panels. The following must be answered to confirm this:
Do the lines appear on all inputs/all signal sources?
