Question about Sharp LC-37D7U 37 in. HDTV LCD Television
I have a 42 Aquos LCD and there is a faint black vertical line in the middle of my TV. You can only see it if the background is a light colour. Is there any way to get rid of this or is this the start of a problem with the TV?
Same problem on the right
Sounds like it could be pixel problems or board problems, this depend on the location. Most are mostly to the left or right, or going across the set to the upper or more to the lower side. For more info visit ctechnicians.com

I have a verticle line running up the right side of my 32" Westinghouse LCD screen. This happened only 6-7 weeks after I bought it. I thought maybe it would go away but it did not... Interestingly, I found that it is exactly where the screen changes from 'normal' mode to 'extended' view mode.
In other words, when viewing the picture in 480 normal mode, you have black on the left and right side of the picture. At that exact line on the right side, is where the permanent black line appeared.
I called the company, and they said that is it NOT an uncommon problem. He said to fix it, I could hook up the tv to my computer and send an all white picture to it. Essentially, burning out the black line. He also said if I couldn't do that (I don't have that cable currnetly) that I could unplug the tv from the wall for 2-3 days...that should also fix it. As this is my only tv, I can't do that...but I am going on vacation in a couple weeks, and I will unplug it while I am gone.. He said if neither fixed the problem, that I should call back and they would deal with it. It is under warranty thank God.
Maybe someone else can try that on theirs, and see if it fixes the problems for them.
