Green lines on control screen of D200

Hello, 3 greens lines appeared on the control screen of my D200 after a year of good service. This is only on control screen and those are not on the pictures. Do you know how to fix it. I am running the V2 firmware.

I think this person means the "control panel".
I agree with JoelB. I would just live with it till it gets worse to the point you can't stand it or it dies. Much of the information is displayed in the viewfinder or you can check your setting on the monitor (you could also reset the camera to the default settings) if you are unable to tell what your settings are from the control panel.
If you are in a position where you cannot risk it not providing information at a critical moment, then get Nikon to fix it now! They have a good, professional repair facility. I would not let anyone else handle it. Send it directly to Nikon's repair facility in NY. I had my D100 repaired and firmware updated by them. Also, use the Nikonian's forum, rather than this....for help.

A little more detail would be helpful in diagnosing your problem. Are the lines vertical or horizontal? Do they run the length or width of the screen or just a portion?
If by "control screen" you refer to the LCD monitor on the back, then it sounds as if it may be failing and needs replacement. Alternatively you can just live with it unless it gets worse (or you're under warranty).

Audio is OK, Video NO


Hello,
It sounds by the description that your tv has a defective T-CON (Timing Control) Board -this is evident by the 5 flashes and the fact that the screen was working ok, then going black then repeating.
The board can be bought usually on ebay but, only if you feel comfortable in replacing it yourself, otherwise a sony service tech needs to be called to repair this!
Good Luck

Screen turn green tv is 57 rear projection


Good Day,
It appears that you may have a green drive issue. Try adjusting the Sreen Control it is located in the front of TV.
1) Remove Speaker Grill (it just pulls off) start at one end, 2) Remove cover (5-6 screws), 3) Adjust control. The control is located on lower right side towards bottom. A small black device with 2 rolls of controls, adjust the center control on bottom row counter clock wise, until you get a black and white picture.(adjust with color control to min).
If this does not work you light bulb (CRT) is bad about a $750.00 repair.

Good Luck, Big Irish.

I have a 51HW40 sony TV. A few problems green horizontal retrace that curves flashes green and turns off (about 2 times a month) I wait turn it back on and its fine Codes that have been tripped: 6: Low b ...


Hello: Have you tried to adjust you Green Screen control on the focus block assembly. located behind the front panel assembly. Here is a solution that might help you, turn off the green by turning off this control, make sure u look at the block and make sure you are not turning the green focus knob instead of scrn crl. Turning the control slowly to the left the retrace lines should disappear as the green video darkens. Then turn the control slowly to the right just until the retrace lines reappear, then turn back slowly left just until the lines go away. If the screen is Blanking on green tube only then you have a video blanking problem on the main signal board. Or possibly a IK bias problem. It is also possible that the green CRT is defective. The FBT is not bad because the screens are lighting up indicating you have high voltageand heater voltage which is derived from one of the secondary windings of the FB. If it is a Blanking problem i would look into replacing the A Board assembly.

Too much yellow does not adjust with normal drop screen adjustments. can i adjust the light beams.on my philips 50"

Turn the green screen control on the Focus Block until retrace lines appear and gradually turn it back
Until the point where you can see the retrace line disappears, just before cutoff.
2. Turn the red screen control on the Focus Block until retrace lines appear and gradually turn it back
Until the point where you can see the retrace line disappears, just before cutoff.
3. Turn the blue screen control on the Focus Block until retrace lines appear and gradually turn it back
until the point where you can see the retrace line disappears, just before cutoff.
4. If the screen still appears too bright after proper G-2 adjustment, you need to adjust the sub-bright adjustment in the service menu
control down until screen cut-off. (Service data Range is usually 21 to 25 in the Service menu, for Sony sets you first go to category "MCP2", & then adjustment item 01( "SBRT")= subright.
For electrical the focus, put on the screen a clear picture of your choice thru an input of the TV set from a DVD, then pause the playback of the DVD Look into each color and rock that color focus control back and forth (turn the control one way then the other way slowing down as the picture goes into the best focus. till the picture looks sharp do each color till they all look in focus. NOTE: it is best to look into each color tube to achieve the best electrical focus. For optical focus please follow the manual lens adjustment in the sets service manual

Vertical lines in my laptop screen


There can be 3 possible reasons for this
1)Screen connector cable is loose. You can try to re-seat it and see if works.
2)display card problem. Connect your laptop to an external monitor and see if the problem persists. If it does not then
3)You will need to get a replacement LCD screen.
Hope this helps!

sounds like X buffer/scan or control/logic problems. without good service info you will have a hard time troubleshooting. And it will get expensive guessing. Could even be a panel, probably gonna need a pro look.

Green horizontal lines across screen


try adjusting the green screen control. remove the front bottom panel of the tv by removing any screws holding it in place. gently pull of the front panel, there are gromets holding it in place, you will be able to gently remove the front, just make sure you get all those screws. now reove the small wodden or plastioc panel. now you will see the screen/focus assy. check to see of the screen controls are the top 3 or bottom 3. adjusted the center screen it's the green one, the other 2 are the red & blue. it is best to adjust in a dark room where the lines will show up easier. good luck
