Re: trouble shooting

If your screen is black with a horizontal line crossing it that means that your horizontal ic is bad,get it change and it will get back to normal.or if your screen is black with a vertical white line crossing it that means your frame ic is bad get it change.the problem is internal.and please dont put the tv ON again to avoid seriuos damage.

When purchased a few years ago the picture and color was excellent. now it is dim and not sharp,adjusting brightness and contrast does not improve it much

The backlight may be going out or it may be a circuit board. Check the manual for trouble shooting.

Tv is about 4 years old. Suddenly developed two

Your plasma screen is made up of 1080 verticle lines and now a few of these lines are not working. This is the screen itself and needs replacing.

Thick black line running down the middle of my screen

hi all .ive had the same problem,a thick black line down screen.sometimes it flickers from top to bottom and other permantly in view.but i have solved it.forget your ic boards and taking apart tv.have you got either a ps3 or wii connected to tv.if so unplug power lead from socket and relocate in seperate socket.make sure the lead is completely free of any other leads and you might just find this works.i think the power lead creates some sort of frequency that the tv picks up .good luck hope it works

Mines a LG RZ42PX11 it intermittently gets a black vertical line down the middle of the screen.

Hi I have a LG RZ42px11 there are 6 vertical thick black lines running down the middle off the screen, when cold the TV seems OK but if it has been on for around 10mins or on standby the lines stay on screen.

White line runs from bottom of screen to top

This is the rastor that you are seeing - it may be possible to adjust the contrast and brightness to remedy however if you have not enough range in your adjustments and it results in being unable to see a usuable image then you more that likely have a problem with the HT coil which must be repaired/replaced at the shop. This is likely to be "fairly" expensive! I take it this is a CRT TV - if it is an LCD then it would be interesting if the sympton occurs at 740 and 1080.

Thick faint lines on screen

It sounds like it could be the cable. Does the same thing happen on all channels and all TV's?

Thick color lines on screen

Hi ,Sorry, this is not a solution. I have a question about your line. Is it transparent? (can you see through if the picture is bright)Does it remain there all the time if you change inputs? My LG 42" just had a blue transparent line appear on the right side of screen. Tried a few trouble shooting things w/ no change. About 1 hour later it went away. Did you find a solution and what was it?
