Inspect the power supply module for bad DC filter caps, sometime it may look OK without having any bulging/leaking top which you will need the cap meter with ESR function testing to verify.

this could be a fault with the tv actual connector for the cable check the connection on the tv and try again or try a manual search to pick up one channel and then do a full scan also are you doing a scan to add channels to the current list as I would personally try and do a complete scan for all new channels list and see what happens

I have a multi colored line running across my screen and I can't get my digital antenna channels? Any ideas? Tv is only about a year old and I have unplugged it for an hour to reset it but it didn't w


Hi it sounds like you have multiple problems with your tv. First you said that there were no digital channels. The tv has a bad signal board. The second problem is the colored line running across the screen. That could be two things either the screen itself is bad or your t-con board is bad. The t-con board would be the cheapest of the two to try. You can get parts from www.interliquidparts.com

My remote control's input select button wont work.....how do i do it manually?


Not sure about this particular TV, but usually, you select inputs by channel selector. Go to Channel 1 on TV not Cable or dish, Use the channel selector button on the set itself, go down from 1. You should see somthing like Aux or Line, then aux 2 or Line 2 etc.. eventually (3 clicks or so) rolling around to ch 115. But usually between the highest ch on the set and ch 1 are the auxillary input selections.

Vertical line at edge of AV1 channel


hi! he might have adjusted the vertical hold and height including the linearity. normally on the board you would see a trimmer resistor with a label v-hold this is to stop the rolling, v- height for the size of the picture. and linearity for the evenness of the picture from top to bottom.

My vizio 37" plasma tv has a green line running down the right side of the screen


Vizio does not make 37" plasma TV. for the green line problem, does it happen on all inputs or just when you what TV (cable or satellite)? That line should only be present on some channels due to signal processing compatibility. To get rid of it, you can use the horizontal size adjustment and expand the picture side way.

Vertival Color Lines


We had the same thing happen to us on the right-hand side. A technician told us yesterday that the Motorola Cable Box (supplied by Shaw Cable) places a border on Non-True HD Channels. Because we didn't place our picture setting to 'full-screen' each time we viewed these channels and burn line was created. He gestimated a replacement screen runs about $800.00 Canadian, but we have a 3 year extended warranty and will receive a new TV. He also said it happens on all big screen tv's that use a cable box creating borders on Non-True HD Channels.
