Yellow line on right side of screen

I have had my tv for about 2 years. I noticed that if watched a channel that was not being broadcast in HD a yellow line would appear on the right side of the screen. This line is about an inch think and runs the entire length of the screen. This line would eventually go away. Now, I when I watch a channel in HD the yellow line is present on the right side, as well as the top right corner, and it does not go away. Any ideas??? Thanks, Tony

    I have a similiar issue. The lower right corner of the screen is yellow and stays that way for all channels and dvd's. It is right at 2 years old. The lamp went out and has been replaced. The problem was not corrected when the bulb was replaced.

I had the same problem. Your optical block needs to be replaced. Good news from Solution #1 above is that you get a free optical block!

Why my jvc television hd61z456 not showing in high definition


What is the signal source that you are watching on your HD61Z456?
The problem you describe usually happens when you aren't using an HD source or have downgraded the signal by the composite input on your TV. (Composite cables only support 480i SD signals.)

You will only see 720p HD content from HD sources, if you use HD compatible inputs. Some OTA channels are also broadcast as only analog signals (usually the -2 and higher sub-channels). If you have cable or satellite, make sure that you have the HD programming and have tuned to the HD version of the channel.

The HDMI and component inputs both support HD signals.

I hope this helps. If you are watching an HD source and the problem persists, I recommend trying new video cables. Next, check if you are getting interference from your devices by using a cable with a Ferrite core. See http://www.monoprice.com/Category?c_id=102&cp_id=10240 for HDMI cables with Ferrite cores. The cores help block interference. If you have very long cable runs, check the behavior with shorter cables between the source and the TV.

52G786 ATSC Tuner no longer works


I have the same exact model tv...Love it...ATSC tuners is in definition an Analog tuner. As the broadcasting companies change over to Digital broadcasting before the deadline in Febuary 2009 more and more local or Non-Digital chanels are becoming obsolete. You would have to purchase a converter box for your tv if your not planning on getting cable. Another way to gois if you have an old cable line running through you house (no incomming cable) plug you tv into that jack. That also acts as a antenna. The sweet part of all this is that your tv do have a QAM tuner or Digital tuner built in just need that digital antenna to pair it up.
