Hey thanks for the feedback. It sounds like your screen may be faulty and there is nothing "you" can do, It souns like you may of hit it or something around them lines and has made the ink in the screen crack and run since it is a LCD TV.
What i would suggest is taking it to a repair shop or contacting goodmans.
Thanks for contacting FixYa Have a nice day Laurence

You may have a problem with the TV. The before LEDs you have a flourescent light that makes the picture visible. You can have that checked if the back light has become weak or does not provide light. Check the connections. If all are ok you may need to have this replaced. If all checks OK you may have a problem with the actual screen and would need replacing.

Well the shadow is caused by the pixels going dead. There is a term for this "dead pixels" if its still under warrenty take it in. If its not you may be able to get a new screen for it on Ebay.com I use ebay a lot and boy I found thing I though I would never find people are very informative and you will probably need to take the screen you bought to a repair shop and have them place it in for you. this is not a quick fix so I hope this helps.

Side shadows on picture


it sounds as if there are speakers to close to the tv or the built in speakers are not magnetically sheilded properly (maufacturer defect) if u have or have ever had speakers on the left and right side of your tv then the magnets in them will discolor and distort the screen. sometimes even long after the speakers have been moved away from the tv it will still look that way. you may try going to the library( or online )and looking in tv repair books on how to build a homade degauser unless your tv has that feature built into it in the menu somewhere like some computer monitors do. I had placed the front speaker of a 5.1 surround sound system on top my tv and it cuased that same problem, but i found out that by placing a small round magnet with a hole in the center on top of the tv (after removing the speaker for good) right where the discoloration was.. had to flip it one side or the other to get proper effect...it immediatly took away most of the discoloration and over time it disappeared. I hope this helps. Please email me at agclay777@comcast.net as to your conclusion in case it will help others. thanks, Adam
