Question about Sharp Aquos LC-42D62U 42 in. LCD HDTV

Sharp 42" flat screen LCD T.V.

We recently purchased a Sharp 42" LCD TV. A month after purchasing the set, the screen developed a thin, but noticeable, blue line running from the top to the bottom of the screen. It is there anytime we turn on the TV.

    Exactly down the middle of the screen the left side is a subtle lighter gray than the right side which appears normal. Is the tv going out or does it need reconfiguring? If so what needs to be done to correct it?

I have a Sharp Aquos 42" wll mount TV. It has worked wonderfully until yesterday PM. I turned it on (with the remote and with the units manual on switch), the green on-light illuminates, the screen goes dark blue, but no image or sound. The TV is on cable, and I have reception in other parts of the house from the same cable system. The unit has not been moved nor have the cables been touched. What might be the problem?

Hi, I've purchased a 2nd hand LG 42" Plasma TV set


Usually black lines in a flat panel indicate an error or problem in the video board. A service professional can hook up to the tv and better diagnose the issue.

Recently I purchased Toshiba REGZA 47 XL 700 E is LED. Is this TV LED ?


Yes and NO your tv is a LED. To be exact it is a LED Backlight LCD TV. An LED-backlight LCD television is an LCD TV that uses LED backlighting instead of the CCFLs used in traditional LCD televisions. It is not a true LED display but is called "LED TV" by some manufacturers.[1] The use of LED backlighting has a dramatic impact, resulting in a thinner panel, less power consumption and heat dissipation, and a brighter display with better contrast levels. You can go to http://www.regza-asia.com/pdf/LEDTV/XL700/47XL700SPEC.pdf and look at the complete specs for your tv

I suggest you check the cable input system. It is possible that the cable unit produces S Video or B-G and the TV is set up to receive standard quality RGB.
