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.

Cannot safely remove


Hi there
I have not come across that problem with my portable hard drive. But I always look at "bottom line" where the icon for the hard drive comes up, click on it then look for the sentence "it is save to remove the device now" .
Hope that you will get a good help with that.

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.

Black line running horizontally across TV screen


A line on an LCD, either horizontal or vertical usually means the video driver board is defective or the screen is defective, does it show up as black even on a dark screen? That means a line of LCD "shutter"s is not working and there is a problem that cant be fixed by a reboot or channel change. Bummer.

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!

Thin vertical line


What you have described is definitely some form of Electrical Interference. Interference can come from a variety of causes. Is the Cable Inputting the Cable Box close to some High Voltage Electrical Lines? Or Are you located near some Electrical Power Station? Or A Police station, where the Radio Transmitter of the Police Station causing the Interference? As I said, there are a variety of reasons. Also, Try to check if the connector is loose at the rear of the Cable Box, or at the rear of the TV. You will have to eliminate every possibility reason. Wish i could help further.
