Question about Vizio VO47L 47 in. LCD TV

Open Question

The left half of the TV screen is dark. The

Many times the left half of the TV screen is dark when turned on. The right half is OK. There is no distinct line between the normal and dark portion-it is a gradual deterioration. The problem normally improves with time if the TV is left on. In the dark section there are some red shadows visible, so it is not completely dark. Sometimes the upper third of the screen clears, with a distinct horizontal demarcation line between the working and impaired parts while the lower 2/3 of the screen stays dark. The right side of the screen is always OK. It has been getting worse with time, and now sometimes occurs even after the set has been on for hours. The TV is 2 1/2 years old. The problem will normally but not always spontaneously clear with time.

SOURCE: red line down right side of screen

I would have a tech come out and look at it. Sometimes the ribbon connectors from the upper or lower buffer boards have poor or corroded contacts. Should'nt be a major deal since it comes and goes.

SOURCE: Green outline/shadow on dark images or backgrounds

LVDS Cable is corroded - This is the cable the provides video from the TV Video Process board to the LCD Panels Timing Control Board.

Honestly, if you can take the TV back do so. If not, Service it using the manufacturer warranty

sadly no.
either your panel has been hit and damaged or the panel itself is failing.
without some sort of warranty coverage, your repair cost would exceed the price of replacement.

How to fix my sony tv?


When a TV is defect, there is no such thing as a magic word over the internet that can heal it. For defects, you really must visit a repair store, or contact Sony, when it still is under warranty.

HELP! Olevia lt37hvs screen went blank. No Sound, panel buttons wont work. Backlight is only on on half of screen.


if you had audio i wold say its most likely the Tconn or its upper two connections to the Panel itself. But since you dont have any sound either I would assume its either the LVDS cable from the main board to the Tconn or the Main board itself as audio and video are produced on the main board, You can get replacement boards from www.tvrepairworld.com

On my monitor W1941S half of area (left side) changed all colours to darker then right side (which is o.k.), What is the problem? Thank you.


Press f-Engine button (it is on the right side of MENU button), select your desired setting, if it doesn't help, select the "X" (none) mode - the half dark screen will reset to full screen OK mode.

Right side of screen becomes discolored and fuzzy after 15min


if its an lcd, it could be a bad lcd panel
does the menu or volume get distorted or dark too?
yes - likely lcd panel
no - video board (main board) problem

a technician would use a can of "freeze spray" to find the issue inside, by cooling down the parts until the problem goes away.. the part you froze to reverse the issue is the bad part.

Hp dv6149us right half of LCD is dark, left half is OK


Sorry to say, I had a similar problem except my screen was upper/lower not left/right. If the drivers and hardware appear fine then it is the screen or connection to the screen. If under warranty send it in now! If not you may need to buy a replacement screen. Shop around for prices AND other solutions- (not being there to give it hands-on care) I may be mistaken.

42" LCD tv shows picture on only half of the screen,other half dark!


The T-Con board (otherwise known as LVDS) connects to two seperste parts of the LCD panel. If you do have half a picture (left or right) replacing the T-Con board should resolve this issue. Open your TV, find the part number and search on eBay or at sites like www.flattvparts.co.uk where you can search by TV model number.
