    How dose something like that get dameged? I'm very cofident on how cairfull i was moving the TV. What is the convergence chip, where is it located, and where do i get one? thanks for the feedback. One more thing I can think of is I layed it on its back on a thick rug, without thinking or asking anyone if it's ok ,of course. Is it ok to lay it on its back?

If the red line is visible across the screen then installing the Firmware update "EJ30U_0.81.8" should resolve the issue. You can download the mentioned Firmware update from the Philips Support site.

    Convergence chip in a TV is used to distribute colors equally on the TV screen. If the convergence chip gets damaged then the colors on the TV may not appear normal.

  • Rahul Prashant Singh Sep 09, 2009

    You can check in the TV for any option to adjust convergence through settings. If there is no such settings in the TV then you can contact service center to get the convergence chip replaced.

  • Rahul Prashant Singh Sep 26, 2009

    You may contact service center to get the part # of the convergence chip or the convergence chip replaced.

I am sure there's a problem with the convergence chip. It must have been damaged. Replacing will surely help.

    Not at all, because keeping things on back can cause insulation and internal burning of componenets.

    If none helps, I suspect a faulty flat panel board.

So I have a 50 Lg ( LG 50LN5700). There is still a picture however about every 3 seconds it goes from regular to blurry and repeats. There seem to be about 3 black lines across the top horizontally about 3...


To clarify, are the 3 black lines horizontal (left to right across entire width of screen)? or are the 3 black lines vertical (top to bottom across entire height of screen)?

Horizontal lines are almost always the result of a failed panel, and no board replacement will fix the issue.

Vertical lines such as you have described (only 3) are probably also a bad panel. If the black lines were evenly spaced in a repeating pattern, it could be a mainboard or TCONN board.

Has this panel been cracked? or perhaps cleaned recently with too much water or cleaning solvent that has gotten the screen wet?

You may have to sell the TV for parts.

Parallel vertical lines through left side of Panasonic Plasma tv


This sounds like one of the driver boards at the bottom or top of the screen has an intermittent fault. The set will have to be taken in to a service centre.

Verticle lines on screen


This is a very easy fix. Your cable box is not grounded correctly. To fix this you need a AC Plug adapter. This will change your TV ac plug from a 3 wire to a 2 wire. This may sound funny, but trust me on this. I have fix a lot of TV in NY doing just this.24001fc.jpg
