    I have the exact same problem with mine.

    It's about 2 years onld now.

    We have the same problem. It first started with intermittent video lost on the bottom half of the screen and then after about 6 months it went to these horizontal and some vertical messed up speckle lines and color distortion. We've had the tv for 3 years now. We've try software updates from Philips website and that didn't work. They say this could be adverse effects related to high altitude but we're at 5100ft and the website states having it below approximately 6562 ft. Who knows?

    I have the same problem. 3 years old and this isn't the first issue. It was going black on half the screen, sometimes just a thick band of black in the middle, sometimes totally black. That seemed to have stopped for a week or so, now it is showing the dozens of horizontal lines. Do you know what the problem is? HELP!

    I have the exact same problem. Is there a fix? If so, how much does it cost?

  • katydids Oct 31, 2008

    This problem just started last night for me. Dozen or so lines across the top 3rd of the picture. Also aprox. 3 yr old set so Im betting replacement parts are hard/impossible to find. Has anyone fixed this problem yet? Does it get worse?

  • katydids Oct 31, 2008

    For those that have fixed this problem. Possibly replacing the y buffer as suggested in similar posts, what was the average cost of that?

    It really blows to spend so much on something and then have to shell out more $$!

Bring up the menu and if the lines are not on the menu replace the small signal board that is your video prossor. If the lines are still the replace the Y main board that contrl the top half of the screen.

Why has my sanyo flat screen television only got coloured horizontal lines across the screen?


That might be an issue with the TVs picture tube if it was not one of the LED or LCD TVs. Please get a technician changed it. If it was any one of the LCD or LED TVs, then it would be more expensive than you expect.

My Samsung tv has thick horizontal line across top of screen


Check the LVDS cable that connects its T'Con board to display panel for any loose fitting at the both end of its sockets. Re-seat them once and check. This is not a problem with any capacitors. If you wish to get more details, check the site linked here. It has screen-shots to some faulty screens to LCD TVs. Compare them to that of your TVs' and make sure. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Pull up previous posts there, either by its left side bar, or view it in Timeslide option.

I have a 2" black line at the top of the tv. And also smaller black lines across the middle of the tv.


Dear Jeff,
It seems like the Horizontal IC in your TV is dying. This and the Vertical IC is responsible for displaying images on your TV. (Look at your TV through your Phone Camera and you will see upward scrolling lines.This is the Horizontal IC in action.)
I would strongly advise you to get your TV repaired immediately.

Horizontal lines across screen - what is the problem?!?! look...


From the looks of the pics you had I see a scan problem if it's a plasma tv. I hope you have warranty coverage. It will be expensive if you don't.
