I purchased a Sanyo tv that had left side dark and ghosting. Having seen the problem before I assumed it was an lcd ribbon that wasn't making proper contact. The tv didn't come with a stand so I had laid it on its back on the table when I turned it on the picture was perfect, but I assumed it was because of the position. I elected to take the cover off and check the lcd ribbons. When o got the metal cover off to expose the lcd panel the screen went bright white with a negative image. I did find a ribbon not making proper contact , but could not get the screen to go back to normal. I'm at a loss

Hello; I do a lot of Sanyo repairs and have seen this problem several times. The left side may be black always or sometimes. In either case the LCD panel is bad. the part from Sanyo was last $1000.00. There seems to be some refirbs or knockoffs for $400. Time for a new set. John
The problem i'm having is, when you turn the tv on it has a split screen with the left side shaken off a little bit. if you give it a tap on the left side it will flicker and the whole screen will come on.
I have the same problem, my television is faded black on the left side with lines on the left top side. I have had the 46 inch unit for 1 year and 7 months. I am planning to write a demand letter to Sanyo and then taking them to small claims court woth evidence that this is a common problem with their units that they know about and is not trying to remedy. Also the Attorney general in Texas should have an interest in them (Walmart and Sanyo) selling these defective proucts in the state.
