Hello

Lines on the panel are a problem with the display panel and the small circuit boards that connect to the panel. There is most likely a poor connection around that area of lcd display, the circuit boards or panels are on the side (either side or possibly both sides) and on the top or bottom.

Try pressing on the edge of the screen, on the plastic around the area of the line and see if it changes. There is probably a poor connection there.

if that is the case to properly fix the problem you would have to take the whole tv apart - inspect that connection area, resolder very small connection cable, theres a very high chance of making the problem worse or losing picture completely in that area of display..

Some people fix these problems by pressing or hitting the tv on that area. I DO NOT RECOMMEND hitting your tv, but as it is a connection problem that might help.

If problem doesn't get better by resoldering connections then most likely the whole display panel needs to be replaced and this will cost more than a new tv.

Osd is saying the main menu is locked how do i unlock


Win Tyler,
Information on resolving your locked screen on your LCD is listed below.
In the TV Menu Settings menu you can
select TV Button lock to lock the TV
Menu and the side panel buttons. When
this option is enabled, only the power
button functions. To unlock the TV Menu
and side panel buttons:
1. Press the Menu button on the TV. A message appears stating that the TV is locked
2. While the message is on the TV, press the channel up and volume increase button
simultaneously.
If you are using the DVI connector, you may need to verify the following settings:
Source - The default setting is Auto. The T V automatically detects if a computer (PC) or video
device is being used. If the image does not display correctly, you can select the source, PC or
Video, depending on the device you are using.
Color - The default color space is RGB. If the colors are not displaying correctly, you can change
the setting to YUV.
You can download and view the online users manual from the link below.

46in Vizio LCD HDTV distorted black picture when tv is turned on


Hi There are three things that can cause this problem. Your lcd screen, t-con board or the signal board. Most likelly in your case since you say it's only half the screen it's going to be your t-con board. You can try removing it and cleaning all the contacts and replacing it see if that helps. If that doesn't help then replace it. If that does not solve it then it's going to be your screen.

You can get parts at www.interliquidparts.com

Discolored strips across top of screen.


If they are pink or blue stripes, I have seen this before. I hope the TV is less than two years old, because the optical block has to be replaced. The optical block has a two year warranty on the part, but you will have to pay labor. Just to double check, make sure you can see it on all inputs and also that it shows up on the menu and on screen display. If yes to all of these, it's the optical block and no adjustments will help. Be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!
