Purple Lines Two days ago I was watching TV and purple lines started appearing. They 2" wide and horrizontal. They are in columns covering the entier screen. Sound is great but you cant see a clear picture because of the puple lines. Does anyone have any suggestions on what the problem might be? Thanks for any help,

Re: Purple Lines

Hi i have been researching your problem and it seems this happens alot on these types of telly the problem people have been having is with the pcb formatter board and once this was replaced it solved the problem but when you get this replaced make sure to tell them to check the resistors leading to the pcb board as a blown resistor can cause the problem with the pcb board so get these checked as well.

Try changing the component cable to your Video 6 and see if you have the same problem. I tried this and figured out that the set top box from Verizon component connections may be bad. I also tried changing to a different set of component cables to troubleshoot. I figure its the box not my TV.
