    I have a 26" Samsung LCD TV with red lines bleeding across the screen. Most obvious in the white areas but it exists all over. I have HDTV with dish network antennas.

Is the unit still under warranty? If it is i would go that route first if not, Maybe consider purchasing an extended warranty and then go from there. I hope this was helpful ... Sincerely Jay

Red lines across the screen and bleeding around corners


This is your LVDS cable. You could replace it yourself and find a replacement online.

1) flip the LCD screen down onto a soft blanket
2) remove all 30 - 40 screws on the back
3) pop the back off
4) look for the LVDS wire, it runs from the top of the LCD screen to under the power unit and into the Main Board.

RU-42PZ71 displays red lines


No, you will need to call an engineer to check the display, this sounds like a fault either with the main board or very possibly (and most likely) a fault with the screen which would mean replacing the screen

Red vertical line down right side of the screen


hi

I think your TV have a trouble inside lcd panel
the controller board contains driver IC. Deffective driver IC can cause of line display.

Three reasons why one vertical line accross screen can happen in LCD;

1.The missing signal from the controller IC to
LCD driver.
2. LCD driver IC itself defective
3. Dry contact in the tape carrier package.

Use masking or electrical tape to mark it where the line was located. press it if the line back to normal but when release your hand came back i think it was intermittent. Open the LCD panel

Wavy red lines or red pixelation, not sure what it is


Go to Vizio website and buy the extending warranty, you need to have your TV replaced since the problem is with the screen itself.

Red lines on right hand side of the screen now no picture on right hand side!


I'm not an expert, but I have determined that the vertical bars that are often red, sometimes blue ... and sometimes both ... are related to a bad control board. I've also read that a common fix is to buy a repair kit with includes the ysus, zsus and control boards ... all replaced together. My experience was that after a month or two with the 1.5" wide stripes, that you eventually loose the entire picture and have sound only. MIne comes back, but won't stay working for very long and the stripes are always there (buy used to fade and flicker sometimes). I'm planning on replacing the control board.

Red line in top corner of screen


Sounds like an IC on the LCD panel went out of TV. Only thing to do is replace panel (it won't go away only get worse) It will probable be cheaper to just get another tv.
