LINE ACROSS TOP OF SCREEN-LOOKS LIKE A GASKET

After my TV was about one year old a line appeared across the top of the screen. It looks like a drooping gasket. Drooping down further in the middle of the screen. Has anyone else got this problem. Can it be fixed easily. I haven't opened the TV in case that is not what it is.

Anyone that has had the problem let me know if this is an easy fix.

I have the same problem with the gasket dropping from the top of the screen. I took the back casing off (approximately 16 screws) don't forget to take off the adaptor box with two screws. and the additional 8 screws located at the bottom of the panel casing. After that the back panel will come off. Remove the tv screen from the front casing, approximately eight screws. Be careful not to dislodge any wires while remove the screen. Finally remove the gasket. All of this can be done at any local tv repair shop for about $150 dollars.

White line across screen


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following
symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can
examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life
of your monitor or TV by several years.

Take it to a repair shop.

Lines down screen


We have a Samsung LE32A457, whilst we were watching T.V tonight the top halve of the screen suddenly appeared with green lines halfway down the screen and that half of the picture was unwatchable, T.V is 2 years old. We have removed all scart leads but this did not help and the problem still exists, when shutting down a white horizontal line across the centre of the screen appears from this line upwards the picture is faulty. Any help or advice would be grateful.

Insignia 32" TV Thin line across screen 1-2" from top


The original white line problem was caused by improper adjustment of the vertical size for which there is an internal adjustment. The current problem could come from two different sources, one an adjustment again, the other from a capacitor that is losing capacitance and gaining losses; = sick.
If you are fortunate enough to have a surviving TV repair in your area, none of these problems is expensive to find or correct.
Don't be surprised to find the only TV shop operating out of a messy garage since those of us doing this kind of service are dying off and the price one can charge for labor has shrunken to the point that a real business address is too expensive to have.

This is usually caused by bad capacitors in the vertical circuit. If you have an electronics background you should be able to find the defective ones with an ESR tester .

No clue


Sounds like failures of the convergence output IC's. They should be STK392-110's in the set. Also check associated circuitry around them.
