It is obvious that the screen is cracked and must be replaced. There are a few problems in doing that. First, it is NEVER covered b warranty. Second, the LCD panel likely cost at least double the price you paid for the TV, if it is even available. Many are not available. Time to shop for another set. Sorry; John

Green vertical lines across the screen.


Green lines on LCD screens generally means physical damage. Did you drop it or bump it by chance? Physical could also include the cable that you are using. Try using a different cable, or make sure it is connected all the way.

My Vizio TV has a damaged display can this be fixed?


It's not a difficult repair, however, it will likely require a new LCD panel. I'm unsure how feasible it would be to order a replacement panel, but it might be worth speaking to a local repair tech (who may have a salvage panel) or searching Craigslist for an identical model in need of repair, but has an LCD panel that is intact. Personally, I've found that, unless the display panel shows physical damage (such as yours), it works well as a replacement part.

I have multi colored vertical lines across the entire screen. The menu screen is perfectly legible when selected on the remote and will go on and off like it is suppose to.


If this tv vertical colors lines problems happen by itself,tv problems not causes by u or an object by hitting forces to the tv LCD screen panel itself.The tv board that call the T-CON board it is dead,this board sit in the bottom in the middle of the LCD screen panel.Must be replaced the T-CON board to solve tv vertical colored vertical lines.Tries websites like Shopjimmy.com,Ebay.com to buy a whole new refurbish T-CON board for the replacement.If causing by u or an object by hitting forces it to the LCD screen panel itself.The tv not worth a whole tv anymore,because by replacing the tv LCD screen panel will cost the same as a new tv.

Our Vizeo P42 purchased in July 2005 has had a red vertical bar on the left side for about two months. About a week ago it developed vertical lines across the left half of the screen with no picture...


sadly no.
either your panel has been hit and damaged or the panel itself is failing.
without some sort of warranty coverage, your repair cost would exceed the price of replacement.

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...

Lines across my tv where the picture is reversed


You have bad capacitors in the vertical deflection. And you will have to resolder the vertical IC as well. Replace the caps in the area of the vertical IC. Find a TV tech or hobbiest to do this!

The capacitorson the FMT board have failed, which will cause that symptom. Is the menu screen clear when you hit menu?

Rows of Lines across top of screen


I decided not to repair, but use the 16:9 feature on the remote control.
a kind of letterbox look, not bad at all.

I'n not going to spend money, replacing the vertical output ic circuit's bad capacitor or vertical power supply for bad cap.

Maybe what you should do is try unplugging the wii, or you might have bad cords, my last piece of advice is maybe the audio cords are messed up?
