I have three lines running down my is wider on the bottom then the other two. It almost looks as if liquid got inside and there is now a smear on the inside on the screen. Is this something that can be fixed or should I scrap the TV?

    Three days ago I notice a streak down the side of my Magnavox flat scree tv monitor as if it is bleeding. It has been growing day by day. Today, it is longer and wider and faintly multicolored with blue, and reds. Wondering if it will go away or what is up?

    One major vertical dark stripe down almost the entire screen height. Mine is a 26" LCD Olievia TV that is about 2 years old. There are also two more lesser vertical stripes on the left and near center that are much less noticeable. Truly an unexpected fault with no way to fix other than probably a screen replacement.

This can be from a bad ribbon cable between the screen assembly and the driver board, or a failure in the screen driver board, or a failure in the screen itself.

Without trying the modules it is impossible to easily know the exact fault. These modules are fairly expensive. There is no manufacture support for component level servicing.

I have three black circles, and some color streaking at he bottom inch of my RCA, LCD tv

that is usually caused by cleaning the screen with windex the windex runs down the screen bewteen the screen and plastic frame and actually seeps inside between the screen layers. Eventually it may go away by itself if the circles are not too bad but in most cases the damage is permanent.It can also be an issue called screen delamination which there is no fix for.

hi, usually you can correct this issue with only a few system checks, dark streaks can be caused by damaged pixels on the screen, in which case you need to replace the TV.
  • Inspect where the dark streaks are on the television. If the streaks occur at the same place on the top and bottom of the screen, they are due to the formatting of a movie or television show you are watching. This is normal. Also, if the streaks appear on the left and right of the screen, they are due to the show being filmed in full-screen instead of wide-screen. This also is normal.

  • Change the input setting so you are viewing the contents of a different device. If the dark streaks are gone, you know they are due to the device connected to it. However, if the dark streaks remains no matter what input the TV is connected to, the problem lies with the television.

  • Inspect the cable connection. Oftentimes when connecting a computer to an LCD TV, you can have strange dark streaks across the screen. Use a DVI-to-HDMI cable connection when plugging in your computer, then press the "Menu" button on your TV remote, select "Picture" and chose "Square Pixel." See whether the image adjusts and the dark streak goes away.
  • Contact the manufacturer of your LCD television if the dark streak remains. This streak can be caused by a defect in the television; if the TV is still under warranty, you can have it replaced.

    Use a flashlight and look closely at the narrow glass next to the platen glass. I usually find a spot of white out on the glass causing the streak. Also a dark spot on the white guide above the glass will cause a streak like you mentioned.

    Dark streaks on the inside of the screen

    If it's an LCD TV, then what your seeing is Liquid Crystals inside. Chances are that someone has bumped the LCD or damaged it, and now the screen is broken. The "Dark Lines" are from misfiring pixels which is a sign that the LCD is damaged and will either stay the same, or get much much worse. I'd lean towards much much worse.

    Just keep it until it really gets bad then just replace it. You can have it fixed, but the repair would cost more then just buying a brand new one.

    Dark toner streaks

    can only be toner, drum or fuser, pull out drum and look at surface are you streaks present? usually drum.

    Stop a print half way threw machine and then remove drum and look at print, pre hot bit (fuser) are you marks there? If so it is drum, if not fuser.
