Horizontal green line appears on screen

We purchased a Sharp Aquos lc46d64u in November 2007. Last week, we noticed a horizontal thin green line constantly move from the bottom to the top of the screen while the tv is on. We can still see and hear the picture but the line moves through it. Once the tv is turned off, it disappears until the it appears the next time. The line doesn't appear all the time. It's not even a year old...please help!

How do I fix my Sharp tv model LC-42D62U? On the tv screen now shows horizontal lines with repeating ghost images.


Hi Paul,
The horizontal lines on the screen are virtually NEVER caused by a bad T-con board. These horizontal lines indicate a defective LCD panel (screen). The Screen has small ICs that become defective overtime and that it isn't fixable unless replacing the entire screen.

Sharp lc46d64u screen has vertical green lines


Unfortunately my friend, there is not a whole lot that can be done. Sharp has a great limited warranty, but it does NOT cover ANY problems due to physical damage. Getting screens replaced often times cost more than the tv itself. Save yourself the trouble of getting pissed off at sharp because they wont help you if you decide to call and replace the tv. Good luck 2 u

Green vertical line on the right side of screen


Warranty still alive?
Hope so; the problem could be an expensive one.

The screen appearance is controlled by allowing light from a backlight through by turning pixels off and on.
This switching is done by a matrix that turns on vertical and horizontal pixels of the right shade at the right time to produce the image you see.
One of the control elements for the vertical that controls the transmission of green light from the backlight, has died (no longer switching off and on when told) and these are normally a part of the LCD screen assembly itself and not easily replaceable.

I would be talking to Sharp - this shouldn't happen in 6-7 months of use.

Line accross top of the screen with flashing black and white boxes


Thin white dashes on top of screen is PERFECTLY NORMAL. It is nothing wrong with the TV, it is the broadcast. What you are seeing is the very bottom of the timecode running. It doesn't happen all of the time or all channels. It usually happens with old 4:3 commercials predating "Digital TV." This is mentioned in your Users Manual. You should be able to adjust the horizontal/vertical position in the menu settings.
