Question about ViewSonic NextVision N3260W 32 in. HD-Ready LCD Television
Do you have any idea what might cause a smear under the screen that looks like the one in the picture? How about the subtle vertical lines that you can see to the left of the smear? This appears regardless of selected input. The smear is not noticeable on a white background but different shades will show it more or less intensely.
Also, the smear showed up out of the blue and not after pressing hard while cleaning or anything like that. Being a former high end home theater installer/designer, I know better then to press on the screen as i clean it.
I have seen this before in a pharmacy on their 32" lcd which was mounted off the ceiling and away from hands.
Here is a pic of the problems. http://i155.photobucket.com/albums/s292/mattmcfaul/P1020430.jpg

Zdenko did an excellent job. Voltage regulators and
the capacitors on the main boards and in the power supplies are always
Some times you can narrow down the culprit buy purchasing a can of
freeze spray. Let the TV warm up and try freezing suspect components to
see if this causes a reaction. Thermal problems can often be found in
Of course, if you're not able or willing to replace components on the circuit boards, you can always replace the main board or power supply board after determining which is causing the problem. These parts should be available at your local Viewsonic service provider at a reasonable price.

Yeah, my 19 year old daughter did the same thing. I found a solution on the 2750W thread
Solution - just press Menu, Enter and Power buttons at once.

Ok, I have some news on this that I know you will not like, but the whole point of this site is to try and help you fix the problem, or at least, try and point you in the right direction.
I have done some extensive searching on this problem over the last month, as I have also had a friend with a similar problem that you are describing. There is a manufacturer's fault on the main power board, this has been recognised by Gateway, but as it happens inconsistantly (it may happen after a few months or a few years), they are not prepared to recall the product.
Obviously this doesn't help us as consumers that buy their products. The blue screen that you describe happens with alot of visual hardware inc. graphics cards that affects the whole market, and has now become affectionately known as The Blue Screen Of Death (BSOD).
If you are one of the lucky one's, and it is still under the manufacturer's warranty, get it sent back asap, and ask for a replacement to a similar model. If not, the only thing you can do is get it repaired or get a new/2nd-hand one.
Like I said, I'm sorry this isn't the news you wanted, but I didn't think it was fair for you to hang on.
