You have to check 2 options:
1.Try to clean up any air inlets - outlets using a brush. In case it's available use air under pressure to throw away the dust from the ventilation grids, but after this leave the laptop to calm for some minutes. Avoid closing the ventilation grids with any objects (especialy blunkets etc when in bed)
2.Update the VGA drivers. Right click on my computer - click on properties - choose the hardware tab - click on device manager - click on the + before the VGA adapter line - right click on the devise that will expand - click on update device driver - choose auto intallation - click on next - in case of an question about the source choose internet update.

Horizontal lines across tv


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following
symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can
examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life
of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

Horizontal lines shadowed / blured picture after 20-30 minutes


There are some semiconductors or capacitors that are leaky. Might need thorough check up inside the TV.

I have a KDL 46XBR5 which displays horizontal lines across the screen for approximately 5 minutes after turning on the TV. Is there a fix for this problem?


The reddish blotchy screen also had a series of horizontal lines/sections of screen on occasion. I was able to determine that the ground wire screws were loose (loosened and retightend all of them) and a few of the connections between boards (the wires/plugs) were loose. Seems to have resolved the issue without having to replace any boards/caps etc. I would try this free 20 minute fix before searching out a new board.

Horizontal lines across whole screen


Bad inverter, or a dirty one. Remove the power cable and battery, then take apart the screen bezel, or casing. Remove the LCD by unhooking it. Disconnect the inverter. Clean it. Reconnect it. Fixed.

Appears to be a convergence problem, the chips are located on large aluminum heat sinks. Check near the 2 or 3, STK IC's for + and - voltage usually 20 to 25vdc. If 1 or both are missing, check microfuses. They should both be close to equal in voltage reading, if not, turn set off after it has been on for 10 minutes, feel the heat sinks at each IC,if one is hotter than the other, replace both IC's or all 3 if it has them. Now check the small low ohmage resisters in and around the STK IC's and you will most likely find a few burnt or discolored and have changed in value, replace these or the new chips installed will self destruct.
