It sounds like an Intergrated Circuit (IC) has fried. Even on a good day, this is not something you can attack at home. As a tech (and as an owner of that model norcent), I'd need a map & tools to know what's going on. Your best bet in this situation is to contact norcent and let them recommend an authorized service center in your area. Sorry I can't be of more help, but this is a rather serious problem.

2 inch line vertically down center of screen


You have a bad LCD driver that can only be fixed by replacing the LCD screen. Chances are the cost of the screen exceeds the cost of the TV, and if you're not under warranty I'd recommend a new unit.

Tv shuts off and on by itself


Hi,

I only hope you have connected the tv with a stabilizer or is it inbuilt? This might be because of Voltage fluctutations. Also, check the connectivity of the internal power card.

A black single line about six inches from top of television all the way across the screen.


Take the TV Back....bad transformer in it, not worth fixing unless you're under warrantee or have extended service plan. Replace if you can as NORCENT is bottom rung of these types of TV's. If you don't know or haven't heard of them, don't buy them...from a guy who sells these things!

Thats usually related to the control board being defective when its across the entire screen, But check the ribbon connections on the control board

Eske told me to ask you!


Are the vertical lines across the entire Screen? If so it could be the control Board. If the lines only go part way from the top but not all the way to the bottom. Depending on where they are it could be the x boards. can you post a picture of your screen with the lines?

I had the same problem too. It called the Y-main Board. It cost $145 if you order directly from Norcent itself. I hope that help.

Black Vertical Bar


It will burn into the screen overtime. The Akai units have a resistor on the address board that feeds the PDP that usually has a crack in the solder on one or both ends of it. There are about 4 address boards that are right below the panel itself and the suspect one is the board right below the line that is appearing. Have someone with solder skills repair it.
