Black strip I've recently noticed that a black strip about 2 inches long has appeared on the left side of the screen.  What is it, and what should I do?

Re: black strip

I also had two bars show up on my TV. I would turn it off and back on and it would still be there. I noticed though that the On screen display "overwrote" the stripes, but the edges of the stripes were still visible. I ended up unplugging for a few minutes and plugging it back in. Bobs your uncle, no more stipes.

Re: black strip

If all the color alignment is correct ( Convergence is right ), it sounds like you may have a problem ddeveloping in the horizontal section. You might want to seek professional help before the circuit fails and the set quits. It could be more costly if you wait to long. Good Luck

when you are using DVD, there is no problem directly indicate the problem is in video game. You can try by changing colour system of the TV (PAL,NTSC etc..) or the video game to fix the problem.
