Question about Flat Panel Televisions
A thin red line is appearing permanently on the right hand side of the LCD screen (Model: 32PFC7422, Philips). Please suggest a solution for the same.
I had a similar problem with my LCD screen TV, and to my dismay, my warranty just ran out. A thin red line began to appear on the right side of the screen, and since many online and expert sources pretty much say replace the expensive LCD screen or get a professional to fix it (in which I suspect to be a business plot to get people to go to pricey experts), I decided to look for other possible alternatives.
Here is some tips/solutions I was given (and it worked! at least for me):
1) Turn off the LCD and unplug the power source and let it rest for 5-10 minutes. Turn it back on and see if it disappears or improve. (This is the one I used.)
2) While turned off, try jiggling gently all chords connected to the TV (cables, power chords, etc.); you could even try unplugging and replugging the chords/cables. Turn the TV back on and see if the red line disappeared or improve. (This is the one I heard worked for others.)
If the above doesn't work then I'm afraid you do have a bad panel on your screen and will need to call in the experts or get a new TV. I hope this will help. Best Wishes.

I have a Samsung LCD. I have parallel lines on the middle of the screen from top to bottom... I'm not sure if this is a re-call issue. My TV is 3 yrs now, and I noticed this a couple days ago. Although, something with the capacitor was messed up on this TV about a year after I bought it (the TV took a long time to turn ON) and some tech sent by samsung fixed the problem.

I have a 42" Sceptre that too has a thin solid red vertical line going down toward the left side of the LCD screen. I'm told it possibly needs a t-conn board & that it's pretty easy to fix myself. What do you think???
