Vertical lines across my entire screen

My tv was working great yesterday, today turned it on and after I turned it on I would see horizontal lines and then a few seconds later vertical lines across the entire screen. In colors (black, red, blue, green, white). If you could please help me. Thank you.

    My In-Laws are having similar problems except the lines are horizontal w/picture. They are experiencing bands of colored lines that seem to be more dense in the bottom 1/5 of the picture, getting less frequent as you go to the top of the picture. The top 1/5 seems to be unaffected. Any suggestions? Repair tech coming today.

    My TV looks great when I first turn it on but 5 to 10 minutes later, it begins to show vertical lines on the right half of the screen. The streaking gets worse and worse with more and more vertical lines until the entire right half is a white box. When I turn the TV off, the left side goes black almost instantly but the right half (the white screen half) goes black after 4-5 seconds after power is turned off. Help, don't have a clue as to what I should do.

My 42" Samsung Plasma HDTV HP-R4252 has a 2" vertical strip of green pixels down the right side of the screen.

My 3 year warranty with Circuit City expires in Nov 2008.. so I hope I'm covered.. can't call until the morning.

Samsung said it might be a logic board problem.. but they want almost $2000 to fix. I might as well buy another TV if Circuit City can't fix it.

HI When I start my ALBA TV, there are horizontal lines across the screen with high noisy sound. I bought this TV just few months ago. thank you


The horizontal line in the screen is the problem cause by vertical output driver.The vertical output is located at the verical section.Maybe theres a loose connection in vertical section or leaked capacitor.It also the cause of deffective vertical ic.So its better to repair and trouble shoot by the authorized technician.If you have knowledge in Tv.Try to replace the leaked capacitor.

Vertical color lines


I had the same thing happen to me this morning. I turned on the TV and it had colored vertical lines through the whole screen. I called Sony and they had me unplug the TV for about 15 minutes. This solved the problem. They said the boards just needed to be reset. It fixed the problem and I am happy with my Sony once again.
