Black line running through screen

I have had this tv approximately two weeks. It has been working fine. I now have a black line running horizontal through the screen. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    I have called Sharp and they are going to have someone contact me to come to my home to look at the tv. Do you think it would be better to pack the tv up and take it back to Sears. It's only been two weeks and I still have the box. I do not want to buy a tv and have continual problems with it. If I do take it back should I have them trade it for the same type? It was the Sharp LC-46D64U.

TH-42PX75U horizontal lines (flickering black and white)

The controller board for the screen is going bad. check for replacement parts. It's not a difficult job to do. Once the back of the TV is removed, you'll see it near the center of the screen.

We have a Sony Triniton 32 inch TV we bought approximately in 2000. For a couple of weeks we had horizontal lines across the screen, then it just went black, no audio, nothing. Just comes on and off....

It is probably you horizontal output or horizontal output drivers. The newer TVs derive all there power from the horizontal circuit. This can only be fixed by an experienced technician as that area produces in excess of 20,000 volts to light the screen. Don't try to fix it your self as you could cause more damage or be electrocuted.

Black line running horizontally across TV screen

A line on an LCD, either horizontal or vertical usually means the video driver board is defective or the screen is defective, does it show up as black even on a dark screen? That means a line of LCD "shutter"s is not working and there is a problem that cant be fixed by a reboot or channel change. Bummer.
