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.
Take it to a repair shop.

Pink/Blue horizontal line on TV


Considering it is a 32 inch set and costs now under 300 dollars it may or may not be worth fixing.

To give an educated guess: either whatever it uses for an inverter board may be bad or damaged OR even the main board that processes all signal into or out to the screen may have either a bad connection(unlikely but possible) or be causing this.

A fatal issue could be something wrong in the screen unit (panel) itself.

I gather set is not under any warranty at this time.

I have a KDL 46XBR5 which displays horizontal lines across the screen for approximately 5 minutes after turning on the TV. Is there a fix for this problem?


The reddish blotchy screen also had a series of horizontal lines/sections of screen on occasion. I was able to determine that the ground wire screws were loose (loosened and retightend all of them) and a few of the connections between boards (the wires/plugs) were loose. Seems to have resolved the issue without having to replace any boards/caps etc. I would try this free 20 minute fix before searching out a new board.

We have a Sony Triniton 32 inch TV we bought approximately in 2000. For a couple of weeks we had horizontal lines across the screen, then it just went black, no audio, nothing. Just comes on and off....


It is probably you horizontal output or horizontal output drivers. The newer TVs derive all there power from the horizontal circuit. This can only be fixed by an experienced technician as that area produces in excess of 20,000 volts to light the screen. Don't try to fix it your self as you could cause more damage or be electrocuted.

HORIZONTAL LINE THROUGH PICTURE


Defective LCD panel. I hope it is under warranty, otherwise you'll have to live with it or buy a new set, as the LCD panel costs almost as much as the TV itself.

Horizontal white lines across top of TV screen


Hi I had the same problem. Broken white lines across the top of the screen. This is called overscan. You need to go into the Setup menu, other settings. 16:9 overscan needs to be on. Hope this helps.It solved our problem.
