    Amazing, same thing happend to my PL4260N on the same date.

    I was watching a show and hundreds of vertical white lines started crossing the screen. No solution so far..

    I have the same problem - it goes away and comes back...but is getting more frequent. I thought it was the connection and replaced all the cords, but even when I whitewash the screen it does the same thing. Oh well I guess it's time for a new TV.

I also have 2 horizonatl lines that roll about a foot apart up the screen...
i have been told twice now by two different people that it is a cable grounding problem, so if you have cable tv call the company and tell them what it is doing, i was informed they are aware of this problem and can install a filter at the main cable in line and this should solve this problem...which since i just had this looked at this morning i am going to be calling the cable company today!
hope this helps

I have a Grainy Screen with Horizontal lines, There is picture behind this. Is this th Ysus Board? I have a HP PL4260N 42 In

Is it only when connected to the computer? If so there are several settings that could be causing the issue. The biggest is the refresh rate, make sure it's set to a max of 60HZ. Also make sure the resolution is not set to high. If your TV is 720p it's 1280x720, for 1080p it's 1920x1080 MAX! Also make sure the cable is tight on both ends. If all this is okay, it may be a hardware issue, but it's doubtful. Try hooking the computer to another TV.

If it's not a computer the issue is most likely either the source resolution or the cable.

Good luck

My PS3 unit is 2 years old: Slow moving lines on game screen.

Easiest way to figure out what the problem is by taking your PS3 to another TV with a different set of cables.

Maybe you've got a freind or family member with a system.

If you get the same problem, then it's the GPU chip on the motherboard.

Let me know what happens.

Furuno 1622 doesn't work, water coming out cable at screen!

yes the cable should be replaced if you are lucky, the unit is still OK (display) Try the new cable, draped across the boat before rigging. If fault exists with new cable, replace system, or find a new display on ebay

Getting Pulsating lines across screen

I have 2 horizontal lines that roll up my screen about a foot apart
i have had 2 different tv repair men tell me it is a CABLE GROUNDING problem
you should call the cable company (if you have regular cable) and supposedly they are aware of this type of problem and can install a filter at the main cable in box and hopefully this will work for you
