Thin green line

Hello. Have a brand new LCD tv Phillips 47" 47PFL5422D/37
47PFL5422D/37. Just tonight noticed a very thin greenish, bluish vertical line running thru the picture. It is about 13 inches from the left side of the screen. It appears in the TV mode where the cable is directly plugged into the tv. Also in the mode where the cable is routed through our VHS/DVD recorder. And also when playing a DVD. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Re: Thin green line

I have heard that using a 3-2 prong converter found at a hardware store can take it away. It takes the plug into the wall from a 3 prong plug to a 2 prong plug and is supposed to work. try it and let me know if it works.

Re: Thin green line

Most likely your tv has a defective LCD panel. If it's in warranty, drop it to the warranty depot shop to repair.

Sony Bravia KDL-40S2000 thin vertical line

If the line is present in all inputs and modes, there is a problem with the LCD Panel. The only way to fix it is to replace the whole LCD Panel which is very expensive (usually around $1000+ for 40" Sony). Unless the TV in under warranty, it is usually around the same price for a new TV.

Thin vertical line

You are going to find it is a LCD panel problem. I am sure that they will take care of you. But also realize that this could have happen to any brand of LCD panel and you will probably not have any other panel issues once it is fixed.
I feel your pain,
