    As i have 2 HDMI inputs being used, namely 1 for Sky-plus HD, and 2 for PS3 this shadowy image is still there, sometimes though depending on the programme you cant notice it at all, its very strange .

    These bars are always stationary and always the same pattern.

    Mine is 18 months old and over the last week - the right half of my screen has become lighter and dark and intense colours on that side now blur... should i send it back?

    Hi,

    my tv has developed coloured horizontal bars whenever the tv is on, you cannot see the picture at all?

    Many thanks.

    yes, I have a kind of 'grid' inset within almost the full size of the screen (split into 4 rectangles of equal size). The most obvious area are also the 'tram' lines that I have either side of the screen (not in the black area but part of the picture itself.

    I have removed all other connections to the TV to make sure that it is not being interfered with. I believe it to be something related to the backlight. It seems to be becoming more prominent. I have adjusted all of the settings within the menus but it makes no difference.

    I also experienced an incredibly faint 'watermark' of ITV1 withina central part of the top left section of the picture (this was evident even when viewing on BBC1 !)



    The above can only really be spotted by the trained eye! I am an expert in digital imaging....so I tend to spot more than most....but I'm hoping someone has had similar problems and has a fix?



    Many thanks!

    Ihave the same problem. A faint imprint of the sky menu remains while vewing, the best way to get rid of this is to turn off at the wall for up to 10 mins. this proves it cant be screen burn.

Is this with all inputs or only some? Also, does it change at all as the set is on for longer periods of time?
Thanks,
Dan

    Do these bars move at all or are they stationary?

Hello,

All Plasma and LCD TV have boards that control vertical and horizontal output to their respective areas. They are connected to the screen by ribbon cables. If one of these boards fails all together, has a failed chip, a bad connection, or a bad ground somewhere it will result in a black line in the area of that board. A bad ribbon cable connection on the bottom will result in a vertical black bar though the screen. Many times resetting the connection will fix it, if the ribbon cable has been nicked there could be a severed connection. They an sometimes be fixed, but it is a pain. An yes I have done it, but the bar is gone. The same will happen if the chip that outputs to that area opens. The connectors are the first place to look paying close attention to the cable, they are extremely delicate so great care must be taken . Good luck in solving the problem....

My samsung lcd tv is 18 months old and has now developed shadow lines on the screen. Its more noticibale when things klike football and snooker are on as the screen is mostly the same colour is there...


Sounds like burn-in. Yep, LCD TVs can have it too. If you look close, I would bet you will the channels that has the bars down each side line up pretty good with that shadowy line. I have spoken with Samsung about this issue in the past, they will not cover it.

I have a Toshiba 32WLT66 that is 3 and a half years old, it has developed 'shadows' on the screen that can be seen particularly when the screen is dark. Any ideas.


It sounds like you have bad inverters on your tv. Those parts are usually under $200 if they are even still available. Call a loca tv shop to further diagnose the problem.
