Lines on screen would be caused by a faulty screen. To solve this you must replace the screen.

Either your video cable needs to be re-seated,or your inverter is going bad.To fix either one you'll have to open your screens plastic housing and also remove the piecce of plastic where your power button is and lift out the keyboard.Re-seating the cable won't cost you anything,if you do it yourself.An Inverter will cost you roughly $60 plus shipping.

Led tv horizontal lines


If the lines are multicolor such as pink, yellow, cyan and white, you most likely have a damaged Led screen. You could have just bumped it on something unknowingly and joggled a connection loose too. If I were you I would consult with the store where you purchased the item and see if they will send it in for a check, this may cost you 50-60 dollars but it's worth not buying a new TV.

Nothing but multi colered lines verticly on the screen


Try this:
Turn it off.
Disconnect power cord and any other device attached to it.
Take battery out.
Without anything attached. Hold down the power button for 10-15 seconds.
Connect the power cord only.
Hold down F2 (while it's off)
Turn it on while holding down F2.
Let go of F2 when something comes out of the screen.
If multi colored lines still appears.
You have either defective LCD(screen) or video card.

I have a horizontal color line across the screen...have sound .This is on Video 1


If you are comfortable working inside the set and can solder, try resoldering both the vertical IC and the input jack connections. The vertical IC will be a small flat IC attached to a heatsink with about 9-11 pins. It will be marked LA7837 or something similar.

Let me know the results.
