Maxent 27" LCD Flat Screen TV

Black horizontal lines/scratches: Our TV is about 18months old and it has 3 large horizontal scratches on the screen. We thought is was damage caused by our toddlers but the lines are growing, one nearly spanning the entire screen. Any suggestions ?

It sounds as if it has a video processing problem or the LCD panel is going bad. Can you feel the scratches? If not it is in the panel. Also it could also be the set top box or cable box if you are using one. Also try another source like a DVD player. If it is still there, then it sounds like what i stated above. Good luck and keep me posted. Guru Jay

This is a fault i have seen with phillips lcd tv's and i suspect it could be the lcd screen itself,the ribbon cables from the screen are heat contacted on to a circuit board and there could be anything from 10 to 15 of these ribon cables and over a period of time the heat generated from the internal panels will deteriorate the plastic ribbon cables.
Try twisting the screen gently by placing your left hand on the top left hand corner and your right hand on the top right hand corner and gently twisting,if the lines go and then come back after you let go then a new screen will be required but it may be cheaper to buy a new one,could be worth buying the extended warrenty.

Check and replace damaged component/s at its horizontal scan output section circuit. Check the LOT (Line Output Transformer) too for damage. Replace the horizontal scan output transistor. Check the input voltage to LOT. If the voltage is absent check the feeder resistor; if any. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.

Scratches on tv screen.


I have used clear plastic sheets and silicon tire dressing for smaller problems like this, but no idea how well it would work with a large screen TV. The westleys silicon tire shine smooths out the scratches, and you place the clear plastic sheet on top of that and work out any bubbles then tape the ends. It pretty much changes a standard screen into a glossy screen with the added benefit that you can always replace the sheet if it is damaged.
I usually get my clear plastic sheets packaged with the new LCD screens I purchase for repairs and I just keep them in storage.

TV BLACK SCREEN WITH THE POWER ON.


It needs repair.
If the line is vertical, then something is damaged on its horizontal circuit section on the mainboard.
If the line is horizontal, the vertical circuit section is damaged.
have it repaired to a qualified service center or person!
avoid switching it to avoid further damage on other parts!

Green line down left side and geen snow


Horizontal or vertical bars on the screen could be from an ac line interference, adjacent magnetic field, bad input wire connections.....especially HDMI connector cables. A bad HDMI cable causes all kinds of unwanted picture interference. Check the conditon of all connection wires for proper fit and function. Keep in mind the method in which you connect your tv will result how the tv performs. As well this line problem could be a circuit issue too, requiring a technician to look at it.

Unfortunately there isn't any way to repair your tv as the magnet has distorted the tube that is in the tv and with CRT becoming obsolete the repair is likely to be very costly so probably your chaepest option is to buy a new tv .
