Hi there

There are a few possible reasons for this.
1) This could be caused by having many connections in your cable (you have joined two or more cables).
2) You could have a faulty connection at your TV or your LNB.
3) Your dish might be faulty of pointing slightly off it's target (satellite)

Keep us posted and thank you for using our service.

You can also try a hard reset: Unplug TV from AC mains and remove all cables from TV. Wait about 30 minutes and replug to AC power and redo the cabling. Switch on the TV and see if it works..



Certainly, I can help you. I would recommend going to the following link and getting the service manual so he can see first hand disassembly instructions and testing proceedures. Its only 10.99 and they email it to you shortly after purchase. The manual is a valuable resource as it will have part numbers in case you do need a new screen. heres the link.

    if that doesnt work, It's going to require a trip to the shop. It can be fixed, but the expense may be prohibitive unless it's under warranty.
    This is a serious problem. It may be a design problem or a defect in the video processing. or digital error buildup of some kind - it is not an easy one to diagnose without some hands-on observations and measurements.

    A technician will have to put on an oscilliscope and trace through the circuits and find out where the vertical bar is being introduced. These sets are grossly complicated from a circuits point of view with several IC chips that make it difficult to troubleshoot.
