Question about Philips Televison & Video

Open Question

I have a Philips 23pf9946/12 LCD tv. The problem is a black vertical strip, possibly electronic, which appears 1/3 from left hand side of screen and about 3" wide. If I switch off the set for 1/2 an hour and switch it back on it goes but appears 20 minutes later, first as a broken signal and then solid black strip. Any solutions welcome. Chris

Sounds like you may have some bad filter capacitors in the convergence board. Better take a close look at them before they damage the chips. Good Luck

SOURCE: Green spot / glow in center left side of Panasonic PT-61LCX65 LCD Projection HDTV

This unit has a chonic issue with corruption in the eeprom that causes spots and shadows. The correction is to find some service center that has the jig to hook up to your unit and correct the eeprom. This is an extended warranty issue with Panasonic and if you contact them they should be able to refer you a qualifed service center and Panasonic will pay.

I did some reading on this. They said its caused by a faulty DMD board. I understand it's costly... around $700 to replace. Still looking for a cheaper avenue...

SOURCE: Sony KF50WE610 Vertical Blue Lines Across Screen

the vertical blue lines indicate some interference from other electronic gadgets near your tv. it started showing up on my sony grand wega when i installed my wireless modem. i almost ordered a new rear projection lamp costing over $100 but decided to experiment. i first moved my desk computer farther away from the tv then isolated the wireless modem router by placing it inside a small glass - the vertical blue lines became lighter in color so i dedided to find another small glass that fit inside the first glass container then put the router in the double glass - no more blue lines and my wireless modem router still works.
do some deductive thinking to figure out what's messing up your tv and isolate the interference.
good luck!

Vertical black bar on my LG 47" LCD shifting the image to the right


Two possibilities are there. The first one is, with loose LVDS cable, that connects the T'Con board to display panel. The second is the fault with its main digital processor board.

Hello,

All plasma an lcd tvs have boards that control vertical and horizontal output to their respective areas. They are connected to the screen by ribbon cables.

IF YOU HAVE A SOLID BLACK LINE RUNNING VERTICALLY THEN YOU HAVE A FAULTY MATRIX INVERTER. IF CENTRAL THE MAIN VERTICAL INVERTER NEEDS CHANGED. LEFT = LEFT VERTICAL INVERTER RIGHT=RIGHT.........

ANOTHER WAY TO GET THIS FAULT IS WORN OR DAMAGED RIBBON/PLASTIC GOING FROM THE SCREEN MATRIX TO THE INVERTER

Hope this help....

I have a Samsung LN32A550 LCD TV. When I turn on my TV, there is a dark rectangular strip 3 1/2 inch in width on the left side of the screen. It is not that obvious, but noticeable. The strip does not go...


One thing you can try IF you know how to work with electronics.
Unplug and remove back cover. Remove the metal cover on the LCD Controller card. (it near the top of set) You may have to disconnect the top of the "H" frame to get to it. Disconnect and carefully re-connect the flat ribbon cable for the left side of the display. (The right side is good so don't touch it.) The connector for the flat ribbons will flip up to release the ribbon. The ribbon is short so this is tricky to do right. You may need a small plastic tool to help. Dont' break the connector. With the card back in place check if the band is still present. If vertical lines appear on the display, unplug and reposition the cable again until they are gone.
Don't touch the contacts on the connectors.
Re-assemble the set. No parts should be left over !!
LCD Controllers for this set are for sale on eBay if need.

Vertical line on LCD TV Panel


Had this same issue on right side of 52" about 1 inch from side but had 3 vertical lines that disappeared after 40 minutes. Have Samsung LNT5265FX/XXA and about 16 months old. LCD Panel itself had to be replaced to fix it, fortunately had extended service plan

Transparent blue band


THIS IS MOST LIKELY TERMINAL. YOU NEED A NEW PANNEL. YOU CAN TRY TO TAKE OFF THE BACK COVER AND RESEAT ALL THE RIBBON CABLES THAT GO TO THE PANNEL. IF THIS DOSEN'T FIX IT, BUY A NEW TV.

Vertical black line on screen


Your set has either a bad driver board or more likely a bad plasma panel.
