If you have a gray band left and right on the screen--in the background----It is a burn on ALL THREE OF THE PICTURE TUBES THIS SET USES.

What happens here is if Contrast (picture) is set all the way up and the set used in the 4X3 mode---it will burn a permanent mark into all three tubes.

If this is the case you may just want to live with it as all three tubes would have to be replaced--over 800 dollars parts and labor depending on where purchased.

I saw a lot of these with this problem when they were fairly new---the DEFAULT setting on these sets is contrast all the way up and this is what burns the image of the 4X3 into the tubes.

Let me know if you have questions. I know this is not good news, but based on your description I think it is what has happened.

Gray vertical bars on screen but no picture


It sounds like you might have shorted out the display panel driver board / boards.
These boards are located at the bottom of the screen and are prone to liquid damage.
Just before this happened, did you happen to spill something on the screen or clean the screen using a spray bottle cleaner?
The only fix I know of is to replace the whole panel but it is usually just as cheap to buy a new TV.

I have a gray bar on the left side of my screen on my desk top that I cannot remove to get a full screen. Help.


Hello. That problem can be hardware, such as a faulty mother board (the video card is part of the mother board on the iMacs). This also depends ont the iMac model that you have. If it is a G5, there was a series problem with condensers on the motherboard, but it is now too late to claim a replacement. If it is a newer iMac with intel chip, I would advise to bring the Mac to an AppleStore near your place or a repair shop for a complete diagnostic.

I think that on an iMac, this kind of problem can't be software related, because it is an all-in-one desktop with no separated screen settings.

Hope that helps

Gray horizontal lines appears when video heads in camera got dirty / clogged.
