This is most likely a bad panel. If it is plasma, you might be able to fix it by checking the ribbon cables inside the TV:

I have a black 6in wide bar on left side of the screen and a 2in bar on the right side that run from top to bottom. Only on certain channels and comercials.

Its not the set if only on certain channels, it cannot be. Got a box or something connected for signal?

It also should not do it if a DVD etc connected to a rear input is used.

Have black mark right hand side off screen from top to bottom about 1in wide also a black circle about 2in in cicrumfrance on my monitor which is 28in can you give me some advice on what is wrong also...

Almost sounds like the screen is broken if you have lines and a black circle which means somebody cracked it. Need to replace that monitor since the screen is not available for that model.

I have a 50 in samsung plasma tv and it sudenly had a 2in wide black and colourrd line from top to bottom appear ? any idears

try and bend the set slightly. IF line goes away suspect ribbon cable connector from x driver boards to panel. The connectors brake away from panel and thus a replacement panel must be installed.

Mitsubithi tv part inside of unit when touched makes picture good or bad need to no what it is i can describe 3 in tall 2in wide 4in long finned rectangle 2 small screws in bottom side

This is probably a video sync module or Integrated Circuit for Video and picture and it has become loose at the solder joints at the Heat sink ( the finned rectangle).
Your TV needs to be serviced by a qualified tech to secure this device on the main board. The contacts or solder joints at the placement area are cracked or broken.

I set cam and crank timing but no comp. No bent valves! Note, #1 piston no at mark. Is one toth off.

I have run into this before . Volvo wants you to buy a special tool to properly set these cam's in time since the cam-drive pulleys are oil advanced . That's fine if you have up to $300.00 for the tool . I made 1 for under $20.00 . Here's How - Buy a 2in. by 7in. by 1/4in. piece of flat steel . 1 - Measure & mark 2in from each end (Length wise) . 2 - Measure & mark from the previous marks 3/4 in. towards center (Width Wise) . 3 - cut out space between marks (Finished product will look like a flat horse-shoe) . 4 - Put (flat horse-shoe) in a vise length wise (TABS UP) . 5 - bend each tab 1/8in.out from straight in line oposite directions (When done if you look straight down the lenght of the tool the tabs will make it apear the 1/4in piece of metal twice as thick)(1/2in.) 6 - Pull valve cover and look at the fire-wall side of the cam-shafts 1 side will be small half moon up(slots in cam will give the apearence of a small & large half moon) 1 small up and the other cam small half moon down . 7 - slightly turn the cams left or right to be able to fit tool in slots . 8 - With tool in place re-install cam-drive belt w/# 1 piston at TDC . 9 - adjust tensioner with very little tension against belt ( grab belt w/ tensioner tight above and below tensioner you should only be able to twist belt no more tha 1/2in. either way ) Bolt her down put her back together ( remove tool ) put valve cover back on & fire it up . GOOD LUCK!!! hope this helps you out .
