Question about Televison & Video

Two black lines across middle of screen.

I have two black lines running across the center of the television when it is on.  I hand delivered it to Olevia in SoCal.  After weeks of calling them, they finally told me it was the main board in the television, and it would cost $350 parts and labor to fix.  (I really think they just threw a price at me without looking at it).  I want to know if something like this would be cheaper if I brought it to a repair center instead of the Manufacturer.  They run for around $900 now so I'm wondering if it is even worth it.

I HAVE A BLACK LINE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SCREEN!

    I have a 45" Sharp Aquos that has a vertical dark line that looks like a crack or a black jagged lightning bolt. It is faint and only appears intermitently when their is darker contrast. The set is only 17 months old.

The flat screen is made of a matrix of elements connected to cables along the side and top. On your unit, some of these many, tiny connections are making contact intermittantly thus losing the elements in that area. These contacts are held in place with just pressure and if that is disturbed, you lose that line of elements. Try squeezing the cabinet of the TV on the outside at the top in the area of the loss and see if that makes a difference. May have to go inside and see if the contact assembly is disturbed or warped or something.
Hope ya fix it!

Most likely the vertical oscillator circuit has failed. As CRT televisions have gone the way of the dinosaur, my advice to you is to give a fond adieu and invest in a new TV.

The problelm is a defective vertical deflection system. Could be the amplifier, vertical output driver or whole printed board that supports the vertical deflection activity. It is considered to be a serious failure.

im pretty sure you cant fix that you probably need to buy a new one.. i know that because my somputer has a white line that runs right down that middle, not all the time but sometimes. my father looked into fixing it and he found out that you have to buy a brand new screen or tower or something like that.
