    We have the same green line.  The repair people say they've seen this before.  Supposedly, there's some part to fix it.   I'm not sure of the cost... we haven't taken it in yet, and it's supposed to be under warranty anyway (costco).

I bumped my screen by accident recently and now have a similar problem (multiple vertical and horizontal thin lines). I was told that the screen is now bad and probably cannot be repaired. The cost of replacement is more than the cost of a new set. Sorry, but that may not be the answer that you are looking for.

    It is OK appreciate the response, this is a new set out of the box two weeks ago and only used for the first time late last night. Not a very good advertisement for Aquos, but I'm sure they will have it replaced.

SOURCE: green vertical line on the right side of screen

Warranty still alive?
Hope so; the problem could be an expensive one.

The screen appearance is controlled by allowing light from a backlight through by turning pixels off and on.
This switching is done by a matrix that turns on vertical and horizontal pixels of the right shade at the right time to produce the image you see.
One of the control elements for the vertical that controls the transmission of green light from the backlight, has died (no longer switching off and on when told) and these are normally a part of the LCD screen assembly itself and not easily replaceable.

I would be talking to Sharp - this shouldn't happen in 6-7 months of use.

Sharp aquos has green and white vertical lines


You must contact a svc co. This is a upper or lower buffer board problem and possibly a control board. Nothing you have done wrong, it just happened.

I have a sharp aquos 52" with a thin vertical red line in center


If you have a thin line running down the screen, you may be looking at a service issue right off of the bat. Here is a few things I want you to try before calling sharp, 1. Reset the unit from the setup menu
2. Unplug the unit for 2 minutes then plug back in. If that does not work. Take digital pictures of the line and call sharp immediately. Make sure you tell the rep you want to sign up for the aquos advantage program that they have(extends your warranty 3 months free of charge!) because that will get you priority service on with your issue. If they cant resolve that line ,9 times out of 10 they will replace the unit. hope this helps you

Thin blue line


I am a Sharp Servicing Technician. You posted this before. Ive got the same model TV as you do LC46D62U. I think the line you are experiencing is simply the broadcast. I notice it on some HD shows that broadcast the side bars. (Always on the Ellen Degeneres Show). Ive taken some picture.

1) Here's the line on the left that i experience

2) Later on in the broadcast, it goes away.

One way to check if its a TV problem or not. When the line shows up again, hit the MENU button on the remote. If the line appears to be "behind" the menu, then it is simply the broadcast.

If the line appears to be "on top" of the menu or shows right through the menu, then it is a TV problem.

Im thinking the reason it takes hours for hte line to appear is because it only shows up on certain shows or certain HD broadcasts.

Green line


sharp is very aware of the panel and main video processor problems.They should give you no problems on the repair.It sounds most likely you have a main video processor problem.
