Question about Flat Panel Televisions

1 Answer

Verticial Lines Red, blue, green, purple lines on the right side of screen. I have unplugged it and they are still there. There are no other electronic devices hooked up. It is a year old and no longer under warranty. I own a Protron 42 inch LCD television and I need help to solve this problem. It is one year old and when you turn it on, it will play ok for a short while, then the screen truns red, then green, then blue, and finally white. This sequence keeps repeating itself sometimes for hours and other times for just a few minutes. I have taken the set to repair men all over the city and noone can tell what is wrong with it. It never does this stuff when a repair person is around, so they only have my description to go by. I have tried disconnecting it from the HDTV box and it still does this, so I know it is the TV itself that is defective. Can anyone point me in the right direction. I would be most appreciative for any help. Mike- Charlotte, NC

Sanyo flat screen tv about 2 yrs old has thin colored horizontal lines down the right side

Nothing you can do about that...get used to it or change the TV.
It's a defect in the panel that can't be reliably fixed.

How do I get rid of purple and green wiggly lines? The black screen that appears when switching between channels was green a couple of weeks ago, that problem stopped after I unplugged the set for a while....

You have a bad LCD control board,It overheats and causes colored lines,screen to darken,or the color go floresent. Also check the power supply for bad caps.
when you have it apart.They usualy go bad on these tv's. It will cause the tv to take longer to come on.Or you have to hit the power button several times to get it on.

Westinghouse LCD TV - broad vertical green and blue lines

try to go to the factory reset and see if that helps. If not, you can then check your connection. if you use component (red, green and blue for video and red and white for audio), make sure all the color matches when you plug it in. if everything have been checked then you need to replace the main board and it should correct the problem.

Red,green and blue lines across screen

I f these lines are slightly diagonal and they all showed up at the same time. you probaly have an open resistor in the ABL circuit. since your set is 13 yrs old, I would not put a penny into it.
You might take the front grill cover off and the panel behind it and find the little black box with 6 little controls 3 are for focus 3 are for screen turn the screen ones ever so slightly counter clock wise. the control in the middle is the green screen adjustment. If the green line goes away try the one labeled r for red and b for blue.

What kind of connections are you using?

If component (red, green, blue) double check to make sure they are seated properly. I'm thinking it sounds like the blue one got loose.
