Ok,if the top or bottom is missing,that would be loss of vertical scan,very unlikely symptom would be half of the left or right,which would be horiz scan. Please check another source,or simply press the menu key and see if that is ok,otherwise the set will need a deflection circuit repair with a range of $75 to $125.........I can also assist with guiding you to repair if you have technical ability?

Phillips flat screen tv left half of screen is black right side is dim and flickering


Is your tv less than a year old? You need to call Phillips and see if it is covered under warranty. If that is not the case you need to get a few estimates. You want to know if it will be cheaper to repair or replace your tv set.

The screen has gone dim


If this has happened over time, then this is not so unusual for a 5 year old projection TV. If happened suddenly then there is a problem in the video circuit. The best thing would be have a technician look att he TV. Please take a few moments to rate my answer. Thanks...

Black Rectangle appears on bottom half of screen


Go into your setup menu and turn off closed captioning. The box is there for some channels even though no text is being sent. If you need to keep the closed captioning, try selecting a different mode for it.

My picture looks like cartoon characters from new commercials


I had recently noticed the same thing happening with mine.Then the left half of the screen turned black and has various red, green, and blue vertical lines. The right half of the screen shows has the picture just fine. It's exactly right down the middle of the screen.

Sony Trinitron KV-32S40 32" TV problem


This is a simple and common problem. The solder joints on the vertical output IC have cracked loose. I actually did a housecall on the exact same set with the exact same symptoms this morning! A good tech will resolder the pins of the vertical output IC and all other major solder joints on the main board and the set will play fine.

A Green Blotchy Area about 9 in oval in the upper part of teh screen


Plasma with Burn in within 3 years, I bet. I've seen Week old plasma's with burn in. Plasma technology is not as good as some would make it out to be. Due to the nature of the physics of the device, it is susceptible to something called "Burn-in" When an image of any form is displayed for long periods of time on a Plasma display, they start to literally burn in or wear out that part of the screen faster than a moving picture elsewhere on the screen. ie. If you have a television that is always on one channel and that channel always displays the little logo in the bottom right of the screen (abc, cbs, speed...) that kind of thing, you will eventually actually be able to read that logo even when the plasma tv is turned off. Check your manual or the manufacturer's website for your tv, and somewhere in there, it will refer to a "half-life" of the tv. ie. if your model has a 2000 hr half life, after 2000 hours of viewing, the display can at maximum, put out 1/2 of it's total brightness output. after another 2000 hrs 1/2 again as bright. and eventually it will be so dim that it's unusable. This is a fault with Plasma technology, LCD does not have this issue. CRT used to have this issue, but advances in technology have lowered this risk. So. What you are seeing is remnants of a bright image that was more often shown on that part of the screen than anywhere else on the screen. There is nothing that can be done other than replace the unit (or the screen, but it's easier to change the whole unit). if you've had this unit for 3+ years, you did pretty well. doing the math, if you only use your tv for 2 hours a day, for the 3 years you own it, assuming a 2000 hr half life, you've broken that limit. meaning that you will have parts of your screen that are very likely half as bright as others. Nature of the beast (plasma). This is why they are not as popular as they are advertised. Try an LCD next time.
