Marks on lcd screen

My tv is only two years old and it looks like a black marker was scribbled in the corners of my tv. The lighter the background the darker the marks look.

SOURCE: Big grey/black spot

Is it a fuzzy spot or an actual hard edged black spot?LCD televisions can have a loss of pixel display- most very small. Was the TV hit with something or dropped against something (the screen)?

OR Try this first:
Black box appears on the screen
• Closed-captioning might be on. Check the Analog or Digital Caption option in the Setup menu.

Please let me know if your problem is solved. Thank You.

SOURCE: LONG BLACK MARKS

Canadian company Tim Horton's uses SHARP 37" LCDs in the stores for advertisements. Alot of them have what look like marks from improper cleaning or almost cloud like stains on the sides of the screens.
On the Sharp screens this is panel separation and is a sign that it is time to replace the screen. This should be covered if the screen is still under warranty.

SOURCE: Dark shadow-like vertical streaks thru LCD screen (Sharp)

Hi, I have a Sony Grand Wega LCD Projection TV that has a blotted gray streak across the front of the screen. I only use a damp cloth to clean the window and that doesn't seem to help. It really shows up on light pictures and is unnoticed when the picture is a little darker. What can I do to fix this problem???

I have a 10 year old Pioneer plasma TV (Pioneer PDP-R05E). When the TV is turned on, it starts with a black screen, and then some reddish dots flashing on the screen, mostly on the corners. After...


10 years on a plasma is pretty good. If you are losing the plasma screen, then it will not be worth the time/cost to replace. LCD TV's have come down (and the new 4K format is here) considerably, are less energy hogs and last longer than the Plasma (this can be debated on longevity but LCD technology has been around a long time and is more prevelant than plasma). Time to upgrade.
it could either be the screen (my bet) or the controller board for the screen. Either way, the cost to truck a repairman out there, diagnose, order the part and return could exceed what a new format LCD will run you.

After replacing screen there is a grayish look during light hours


you replaced the inside LCD screen?
i guess there is a full story here, but...?????
light hours,?
you mean with windows open and the screen goes gray?

some monitors and tv's do that, now. called GREEN MODE.
turn it off. My stupid TV (LG) goes gray with a reading lamp on.
silly to the extreme that. Im sure yours is not with a room light sensor, but do RTM.
as you know , the screen is black lighted.
and old screens (2005 it is) do get gray and other effects.
my old view sonic, (now on server duty, off mostly)
has dim and yellow back lamps.and the LCD has age effects.
this is all 100% normal for 8 years, full time service,
in fact lucky it works at all. truth being.

elaborate what you see better may be we can hone in on the reasons. and the what you touched inside.

Black vertical line on top corner of my tv


Has the TV been hit or anything? Its most likely that your LCD is broken, But also make sure its not your cable or connections to your TV.

Patch of purple "scribble" lines on corner of screen


Sounds like the same problem that I just started having. Although my scribble lines are yellow. Personally I'm thinking that one of the three LCD panels has cracked internally and will need to be replaced.
