This is tough to troubleshoot without seeing it. These sets usualy have a bad optical block when a discoloration happens but it is almost always blue. You may have a bad C borard or a bad C-2 board. If you are confident enough to take it apart and clean the dust from the optical block, you may be able to clear the problem. For cleanning instructions contact me at cabledude0461@yahoo.com. I rebuild these optical blocks and can assist.

How do I get rid of vertical streaks?


You may have a bad drum cartridge. Is it refilled? Try replacing it with brand new original.

If there are debris of "black film-like material" you may need to replace your fuser film.

Picture problem on panasonic Vierra plasma tv


It looks like you are saying standard definition pictures do not cover the screen like HD pictures do. Standard def is formatted 4:3 and high def is 16:9. They are not the same so your high def screen is made to display the not as tall but wider high def picture. In order to fill the screen with the taller and not as wide 4:3 aspect ratio std def picture you must tell the TV to stretch the picture or otherwise fill the screen.The TV will have controls you can exercise for this purpose and you can set it up to always show std def in a particular manner. The alternative, if you want the standard Def picture to look true to form, is to view standard def in Letter Box form. It's appearance will then include black panels on the sides of the picture. So the problem is not with the TV but in accepting older format pictures playing on newer format displays (TVs.)

My Bush tv NR Itv 2101 on channels 1 & 4 picture is fine but channels 2,3, & 5 has a black band 1 inch deep top and botton. All channels say 4.3 so can't be that, any idea's. regards JM


it is because the channel is being brodcast in hd and not just digital. it is an unfortutane side effect of the dtv convertion, all brodcast are now digital but not all are high def, if you had a high def tv and were watching and standard definition channel it would have thick black line on the left and right because the image does not fill the dislay

Sony Bravia 32in ... vertical gray line on right side of the screen about 4in from the edge of the screen. The line is about 5mm thick and present on all inputs. More visible over brown and blue...


Hello,

The line should be visible, even with the television off. It is called "de-lamination" of the LCD panel, and occurs in lines, usually vertical, on the screen.

The panel does need to be replaced. You can contact Sony at 1800-222-SONY. They are good people, and should be able to help you.

Hope this helps...

Picture is now a thin horizontal line


now only visible in a thin horizontal line. first of all you reduce brightness to monimum. it just to protect your tv from crt demage. your problem is in horizontal output section as you have mentioned that week or so ago the right and left bottom edges of the picture began to move in like a sideways triangle filled with black so this sympton is due to hor. section problem. your flyback transformer or horizontal output might be defective. but remember check for power supply is ok from surge protector hope this will help.

Vertical streak near left edge of printouts....only affects black portion of print image


Where best to look will depend a little on the nature of the smudge. If what you're looking at is white, then you might just have a little heap of toner or paper dust on part of the LED array that paints the picture onto the photoconductor drum (look for a narrow unit that stretches full width, adjacent to the drum. Dark marks may, if you're lucky, be down to dirt on charger wires. Both respond well to cleaning with a vacuum and a soft cloth (be very gentle if cleaning the wires). I would be inclined to trust the existing photoconductor unit unless you know it's been abused (e.g. by leaving it lying around in daylight) or the coating on the drum is visibly damaged. A.
