Faint blue vertical bars on screen

I have noticed that when my screen is dark I see very faint vertical blue bars on the screen. They are noticable only when the screen is dark or when a movie has a very dark scene.

Re: faint blue vertical bars on screen

What you see on your screen are retrace lines, it can happen for various reasons. Jut lower the screen voltage by adjusting the knob specified as "screen" on the LOT, this will disappear.

Crt Ultra slim lg tv develops black bars up and down of the screen automatically and this happens only during the day. I dont notice it during the night.

Vertical rolling is the problem, I assume. If so, it will be the fault with its vertical output IC. Contact any service technician to make it confirm.

There are two reasons for this fault. A fault smoothing capacitor at the video output voltage rail, or excess of screen voltage. These lines are called 'vertical retrace lines' technically. Check this link for more details. It has a post, which have information regarding this fault. Go to older posts there.

Hello, I have a Sony FD Trinitron WEGA #KV-36FV310 manufactured around 03'-04', all of a sudden lately i've noticed a ghosting blue line spiraling up the screen,i only notice it when the screen gets dark,...

It's the return of the line, it should be cut off completely. To make it invisible again the cutoff point for the blue cannon should be adjusted (practically this means - turn a potentiometer) - all it takes is a screwdriver and the necessary knowledge. How much it will cost - that depends on how expensive your repairmen are

Black vertical bars on left side of screen


when you are using DVD, there is no problem directly indicate the problem is in video game. You can try by changing colour system of the TV (PAL,NTSC etc..) or the video game to fix the problem.

Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-36HS500 36" TV - Bowed Picture

it sounds like a convergence adjustment problem. If you hava book on the tv still read it, and it will tell you what to do, other wise, look for a convergence button on the front of your tv, and take the remote and push menu to bring up setup, and go convergence adjustment click it and hit the conv. button on the front of the screen. there should be to lines going vertical and horizontal, these are the limes you adjust with your remote, you have to adjust the red and blue, the tv should blink to let you know which color you are on. when you have them lined up right the line will be perfectly white. hope this helps
