Lines coming down from the top of screen

I have a 27 inch Phillips flat screen television....Model # 27PT6441?37 and it has a band of lines about 3 inches wide coming down from the top of the screen and at times it looks like there is a mirror image......the lines started out small but over the past week it has grown to about 3 inches wide. Could this be the picture tube going out or what

Those lines are beaming in from the planet Alenod. For the moment you'll only be annoyed by those lines. But when those lines finally expand the entire surface of your screen you and everything in your viewing area will vaporize. Gosh, If I were you I'd chunk it as quickly as possible and buy a 47" Vizio! They're on sell at Sams! Pleeze hurry!!

White band from top yo bottom of screen


Good luck with this. If it is under warranty, Sharp will take forever to do anything about it. I had this issue and Sharp wanted pictures of the problem, Pictures of the serial and model number and the receipt. I sent it to them 6 months ago and never heard anything back. If it is not under warranty, this is a major repair and it may cost more than a new television.

How do I correct pink and green bands accross HP-R4252 Plasma TV


First of all try, changing the input device to some other and see whether you see the same problem. Then connect your present input to a different TV and see. If you feel the input is ok, and it is a problem in the display, this is a case to be handled by a qualified service technician.

The screen has colored vertical lines and becomes to a dark black band about 6 inches of width.The tv is exactly two years old by today.


My 3-year old 52-inch Toshiba flat panel TV (Model # 52RV53U, Serial # AM409000295) developed a display problem (purchased Aug. 2008, manufactured July 2008). Vertical multicolored lines appeared on the screen just left of center. The band of thin vertical bars is 5.5 inches wide. The lines are about 1/16-inch wide. They are stationary, always exactly in same place. They over-ride any other picture on the screen (no transparency). They are there all time even with no video inputs to the TV after the unit is turned on. See picture #1. The TV works well in every other respect, but, obviously, it is annoying to watch the picture with the color band blocking about 1/6 of the picture.

I already swapped out the TCON board with no improvement and replugged the TCON board cables with no improvement.

Most likely it is the flat panel tab bond failure (panel made by Samsung). Further solution updates will be on my Facebook page.

Maxent 27" LCD Flat Screen TV


This is a fault i have seen with phillips lcd tv's and i suspect it could be the lcd screen itself,the ribbon cables from the screen are heat contacted on to a circuit board and there could be anything from 10 to 15 of these ribon cables and over a period of time the heat generated from the internal panels will deteriorate the plastic ribbon cables.
Try twisting the screen gently by placing your left hand on the top left hand corner and your right hand on the top right hand corner and gently twisting,if the lines go and then come back after you let go then a new screen will be required but it may be cheaper to buy a new one,could be worth buying the extended warrenty.
