Hi,


Initially if it is near the bottom, I would suspect that somehow you have activated the "Close Caption" feature. Corrective procedure would of course be to disable/turn it off.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,



    The going from top to bottom makes it an entirely different issue. You have a 60 cycle hum in your video. This could either be:

    1. interference in your signal source which include aerial, cable, DVD, VCR. Pls check if the AC plugs are fitted correctly to the mains outlet. In some instances reversing the way they are plug in also helps. If it is only when watching TV programs, then perhaps you can bring this concern to the attention of your cable provider. It using an aerial, you may need to reorient the antenna;

    2. at other times, this could be caused by a fault with the big filter capacitor in the power supply. The PSU though getting and giving sufficient power is not filtered enough and allows stray hum to enter the circuitry. This is then displayed as the black moving bar super imposed on the video.

    #1 would be relatively easily to verify, however #2 would perhaps require the services of a qualified professional.



    Chhers.

It is possible that you may need to download an upgrade to a flash drive and then with the tv off, insert the flash drive into the usb port on the tv. Turn the tv on and it will load itself. Check Philips website for updates...

Whats causing horizontal lines in my philips 42 in. plasma tv? seems to be 4 sets of lines with about 15 to 20 lines in each set. Also has the red vertical explosion from images on the channel im watching.


There are very fragile ribbons that are attatched to the top of some LCD displays, if these have been pinched or damaged in anyway, this can create what you are describing. Was the LCD panel ever hit by like a wii remote around the tv bezel or did it fall without cracking the screen? It could be something simpler like, some really wrong color settings or something...

Vertical green line


You've got a bad panel. Hopefully Philips support will stand by their product & give you credit towards a new TV or replace your panel. There is no other way around this.

Lines through flat screen


The only Item to fix a vertical line running through screen is to replace the panel itself. You can check the price at a repair shop or through parts.com for a rough estimate but I can tell you it will be more than what the TV is worth.

White lines equally spaced 1" apart.


This is probably caused by the small signal board. It controls and decodes the picture information before it is sent to the display panel. It can be fixed by a quailified technician and if you contact philips (this is who makes magnavox) they will tell you the closest certified technician. Hope this helps.
