Is it a vertical or horizontal line?

    It is most probably one of the x-drive boards or the control board.

    there are three boards at the bottom of the pdp panel, the screen is divided into 3, the left and right boards control equal and a slightly larger portion of the screen than the middle. depending on where the line is, you can disconnect the corresponding board to see which one controls the area where there is a vertical line. Replacing that board will most likely fix the problem.

    I have circled the possible boards. I think you should also get a second opinion as i am not a pdp expert.

My 55inch LG 3D smart tv is not working properly. When you turn the tv on the LG home screen comes on for a few seconds, and then the screen goes black. What is causing this


it's set to the wrong input device ? the one you currently have it pointed to has no input

also it's possible that cable plugged into current input channel has gone bad or become disconnected from it's source
Hdmi cables are unfortunately famous for this as they have no Lock device to keep them inserted into ports

most TV's nowdays shut off if not provided an input for a few minutes

Vertical white bar across screen


Hello Sleitz ok want you to try acouple of things first lets change the ratio of the channels to 16:9 or 4:3 if the line is there regardless of you trying this procedure then try to disconnect some of the connections coming into your tv set like the cable,satellite connection ect ... and connect them back on just to see what happens also while trying this method keep an eye on the screen to see if it changes in some sort and the line disappears, if the line goes away then that was your problem, if the line is still there after trying the above procedures then this is a faulty front panel and this is expensive to repair, hopefully not lets keep our fingers crossed for it to be a bad connection to your tv set, thank you hope this helps.

Two black lines across middle of screen.


The flat screen is made of a matrix of elements connected to cables along the side and top. On your unit, some of these many, tiny connections are making contact intermittantly thus losing the elements in that area. These contacts are held in place with just pressure and if that is disturbed, you lose that line of elements. Try squeezing the cabinet of the TV on the outside at the top in the area of the loss and see if that makes a difference. May have to go inside and see if the contact assembly is disturbed or warped or something.
Hope ya fix it!

Screen blacks out on HD channels


Saying that the problem is with your TV doesn't make any sense since your TV is fed from the cable box.  Your TV doesn't know one channel from the next.  If it had a problem it would effect all channels.  You may not have enough signal to the INPUT of your cable box due to a problem on the pole or at your house or both.  Insufficient signal can cause some digital channels to not get decoded properly by the cable box.  The lower channels will show noise symptoms such as what you describe but they won't crap out altogether like the digital ones.  Have a cable tech come out and measure the signals.

Do you have splitters in line with the cable anywhere?  If there's any way to beef up the amount of signal getting to the cable box try it.

LN-T4665F 46 in. LCD- Black Line across screen


The set is under a year old and is under warranty. The LVDS cable inside these sets have a history of coming loose. The problem could be the panel. Either way, the set is the problem and needs to be looked at. This set is worked on in the home and does not need to be taken to a shop, so, you can still use it. Contact Samsung at: 1-800-SAMSUNG Hope this helps.
