    I have the same problem (i think)
    Here's a picture of my tv with the red lines:

    Horizontal red line on top of any otherwise clear picture. The lines are a the top anf the bottom, while the middle is w/0 lines. The lines are bad when the set is first turned on, but they get better as the set warms up

I fixed my problem: it was the screen voltage.
To (try to) fix it: open up your tv, look for a thing like this:
I have red horizontal lines - 3ee50f1.jpg
As you can see it has 3 control-screws. one of these is for the screen (it has the text 'screen' near it), turn it slightly to the left to reduce the voltage, and the lines will probably disappear.

I have a Mitsubishi WD-62525. In general the picture is great from all sources (cable, component, and hdmi). However, there occasionally are very thin, horizontal lines that flicker across the screen....


I have seen this problem before. It is usually caused by a malfunctioning color wheel. Replacing it should resolve the problem. Let me know if you wish to fix it yourself so that I can find you a replacement.

The picture in my Sony Wega is not nearly as clear as before.


Hi , it seems you are experimenting a light engine problem.Here's how your tv works: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZLLHnQ4y-wo Basically there's 3 LCD chips that create the colors and image by blending together.When these chips start to melt you will get those blue spots, pixilation even vertical lines.You will need to replace the light engine. Have a blessed one!

Screen is red with lines when channel is changed


If its a kp-51hw40 : go to an unused video input and look at the screen---if it is redish in the background with curved faint trace lines you have one of two things wrong; First: the red "screen" control may be set too high. Second: you may have a problem with the RED picture tube.


To try to adjust the RED screen down you have to remove the entire front grill plate on the front of the TV(some have screws on the back on either side that have to be removed---and then you should be able to pop it out. Behind it there is a masonite inspection plate held in with screws----Once you have that off look for a SMALL SQUARE BLACK PLASTIC BLOCK; it has 6 black adjustable controls---you have to use a flashlight and look carefully---one row left to right will be marked FOCUS--DON'T TOUCH THOSE---THE OTHER ROW left to right will be marked SCREEN; if you look carefully you will see marked by each r (red) g (Green) b (blue)
you want to locate the RED SCREEN CONTROL.

WITH the set still on a blank video input where you can see it clearly turn the RED Screen Control to the left until the lines and red tint go away---do this slowly and make sure you are adjusting the RED screen--not the FOCUS.


IF this has been helpful give me a vote here as I do this for free; yesterday I adjusted one of these in a home that was blue with the faint lines---about 15 minute job for me.

Red Bowed Lines / Red Hue


I tried the solution that was posted for this problem and it worked!
Just remove the Low front panel by removing the two bottom screws that are covered by two screw covers, then remove the second panel (black) by removing the 4 screws then you'll notice a module with 6 adjustment knobs, get a small screw driver, and with the t.v. on, being carefull , and with somebody accross the room looking at the screen begin with the lower left knob and turn left very slowly and ask the person across the room to let you know if the screen is better or not, after this I had to adjust the green as well so, I adjusted the next knob over to the left. Do this adjustment carefully and try to remenber the original position of the knobs in case you have to go back.f
Good Luck,
Californian.

Samsung 42" HCM4216W Dim Horizontal line across screen


THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH CONVERGENCE or any of the stk integrated circuits.There are few capacitors close to the vertical output ic, they are usually blue or red (could be 1000uf 50volts for e.g.)That where the problem is

57" Toshiba with wavy green/red lines "good overall picture"


Appears to be a convergence problem, the chips are located on large aluminum heat sinks. Check near the 2 or 3, STK IC's for + and - voltage usually 20 to 25vdc. If 1 or both are missing, check microfuses. They should both be close to equal in voltage reading, if not, turn set off after it has been on for 10 minutes, feel the heat sinks at each IC,if one is hotter than the other, replace both IC's or all 3 if it has them. Now check the small low ohmage resisters in and around the STK IC's and you will most likely find a few burnt or discolored and have changed in value, replace these or the new chips installed will self destruct.

Very fine red lines across srceen


It is an adjustment, but it's an adjustment you may not want to do. It's the red screen control. It's located behind the front panel so the entire front panel has to be removed in order to access it-which will expose you to hazardous voltages. if you like, I can post detailed instructions on how to get that front panel off, it's kinda tricky.
