The thick bar you are seeing could be a couple of things - either your HDMI or any other wire your connecting has been run too close to electrical lines, or your cable incoming needs to be grounded and/or filtered. It could also be a defect in the TV - does it happen when the DVD is on as well?

This could be due to some electrical interference. Make sure you are using a grounded (3-pin) power plug, and that the outlet is properly wired. For that take the TV to a another location and see if the problem goes away.
Make sure you don't have fluorescent light fixtures nearby--they can interfere with the picture, if the bulbs or ballast is defective.

4 inch horizontal black bar across my 42 inch dell plasma. tv doesnt shut off and sound ok


The thick bar you are seeing could be a couple of things - either your HDMI or any other wire your connecting has been run too close to electrical lines, or your cable incoming needs to be grounded and/or filtered. It could also be a defect in the TV.

Sometimes it will just go away.... Its hard to tell without actually looking at your setup and television.

The tv comes on and then goes completely out after about 20 sceonds. While it is on there are diagonal lines on a lime green field that do not move.


yes. if you have a black bright screen with about 16 to 20 horizontal lines going across, you have no video. suggest local service center. if it is a magnavox, this is easy. you have an open 1 ohm(approx. value) resistor on the crt board.

Pink bar across top of tv screen


This could be from 2 things. 1 is the optical block is going bad or 2 you got a peice of dust blown in from the cooling fan and its blocking the color filter internally. If you are capable you can take the tv apart and blow compressed air into the color block and remove the dust. Hope this helps

Red,green and blue lines across screen


I f these lines are slightly diagonal and they all showed up at the same time. you probaly have an open resistor in the ABL circuit. since your set is 13 yrs old, I would not put a penny into it.
You might take the front grill cover off and the panel behind it and find the little black box with 6 little controls 3 are for focus 3 are for screen turn the screen ones ever so slightly counter clock wise. the control in the middle is the green screen adjustment. If the green line goes away try the one labeled r for red and b for blue.
