Question about RCA Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a 48 inch RCA LCD TV that I bought 16 months ago. There are 3 white dots (about the size of a quarter) vertically down the right center portion of my TV. Almost looks like there is a spotlight

Just started on the weekend. Won't go away. The 3 dots are slightly brighter than the rest of the screen.

These sound like pressure spots. Caused by pressure to the screen at some point. Often this requires the LCD panel to be replaced.

    Can pressure spots be cause by not touching it? They are too far away from each other and too big around for them to be from someone touching it. They are about the size of a quarter each, and are about 2 inches apart. Almost like a pattern. I also keep my PS3 behind my TV and near, but below, that spot. Not sure if that helps...

SOURCE: 40 inch lcd blue line vertical

The display screen is made of a matrix of elements connected to cables along the side and top. On your unit, some of these many, tiny connections are making contact intermittantly thus losing the elements in that area. These contacts are held in place with just pressure and if that is disturbed, you lose that line of elements. Try squeezing the cabinet of the TV on the outside at the top in the area of the loss and see if that makes a difference. May have to go inside and see if the contact assembly is disturbed or warped or something.
Hope ya fix it!

You will most likely need to replace the panel. You will have to contact Sony and they will send a Factory Trained Technician to your home to replace it. Since you are not on Factory Warranty this repair will cost you. You may find it cheaper just to replace the television.

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!

Vertical Black line 3 inch width on Plasma Samsung 42C96HD after 2 months of use


On al the plasma tvs there are control boards on the lower part of the screen that control the vertical images. If one of the chips on one of the boards fail, have a bad connection, or no ground it will result in a thick black lne down the screen. Seeing as the tv is new I would get the warrantee repair on it. There is a possibility that there is a problem with the screen itself but more than likely its the boards.

Screen not centerd


If it is a RCA F27649 then it has what they call a bonded yoke, meaning the only adjustments to shift the picture horizontal or vertical are electronic adjustments via the service menu.
