The display sounds to be bad.Maybe the inverter but most likely the display itself is has gone bad.

Youtube on my vizio 470i tv is off centered


CHANGING THE SCREEN ASPECT RATIO: ( From Manual )
The TV can display images in four different modes: Wide, Zoom, Panoramic, and Normal. Each mode displays the picture differently. To change the screen aspect ratio:
1. Press the MENU button on the remote.
2. Use the Arrow buttons to highlight the Wide icon. Press OK.
3. Use the Arrow buttons to highlight your desired screen mode and press OK:
• Normal preserves the content's original aspect ratio. Since the 4:3 aspect ratio is not large enough to fill the TV's screen, black bars are added to the left and right of the display image.
• Wide stretches a 4:3 aspect ratio picture to the edges of the screen. Since the picture is being stretched, the display image may appear distorted. If the program is already formatted for widescreen viewing (1.85:1 or 2.35:1), then black bars will appear on the top and bottom of the display image.
• Zoom expands images with black bars to fit the screen.
• Panoramic expands the display image to fill the screen.
images may appear wider than intended.
If you are watching widescreen (1.85:1 or 2.35:1) content, black bars will still appear on the top and bottom of the display image. This option is only available when the TV is displaying a 480i/480p source.

2" wide bar in center of Panasonic plasma TH-C42FD18 TV


The C5 board is bad. It is replaceable. Warning. always disconnect power cables from power board to y main on left and x main on the rt before ever messing with fat cables on boards across the bottom . The are created if power power is not isolated will vaporize these flat cable destroying the plasm panel. thes boars across the bottom are the c boards. If one of the connectors is loose it will create an vertical black bar in proximity to that connector. If the connector is not loose then replace that board. Also panel could be bad if c board does not fix. But remember to never connect or dissconnect these flat without disconnecting the power board from the sustain boards.

Continuous vertical white band display problem


What is the error from installing xp sp3?
Is the white band always there? it is either a problem with the lcd panel most likely, or the graphics card. try a different monitor if you have one.

VERTICAL WHITE BAR ACROSS THE LCD SCREEN


Almost certainly the LCD panel has failed, and would be replaced by Dell if it is still under warranty. You can try to replace the VGA or DVI cable that connects the LCD to the PC. If the problem persists it is the LCD.

got this from a friend: Apparently some series of Acer notebook came with BAD_EDID laptop display. The only thing wrong is the checksum which is 9D and should be 1D. Powerstrip 3.76 (registered version) managed automatically to correct EDID.

There is no problem with drivers from 101.x series, but with any newer driver max. resolution is 1024x768 and the picture is in left upper corner of the screen with black bar on the right and smudged taskbar to the bottom of the screen. After installing and restarting resolution is set to 800x600 what results in white screen whit thick black bar slowly appearing on the screen.

Very faint vertical bar moving across plasma screen.


OK... Left to Right is weird. I'd say one of two things.
Refresh Rate might be to low or to high, but i doubt this to be the cause. I'll put my money on external interferences. Something like another PC screen? TV? anything magnetic and I've even in some cases noticed PC side panels too close to a screen can cause this.

Wide white vertical bar down center of screen.


The only way to fix this is to replace the entire inside of the television, basicly the entire set except the case and power supply. I watched two repairman do this repair and this is not a do it yourself job. I asked them on a scale from a 1-10 how hard this job was for them, and almost before I could get the last words out of my mouth with this questions they both said a 10.
