Water mark on my Magnavox 42MF521D/37 LCD

On the right side of the TV about 12 inchies in I have what looks like a water mark that runs from top to bottom and is about 1 inch wide, and on the right side of this it appears that the color is a little differnt. If something is in HD sometimes its hard to see the line, but it is still there.

    I have a similar problem with my 42 LCD, only the space between the two lines is about 4 to 5 inches. Was going to call that problem in this week when the set just quit working. It made a slight ticking noise and went black. Power switch will not work on the front. Technician here today and ordered a new part and said that the power supply could be cause of the water mark. I think that's just a bunch of hooey, but we'll see. TV is under extended warranty. But, it's with Sears, so that's another problem.

It sounds like there is a defect in the screen. Without seeing this, it is very difficult to properly determine anything. If this is bothering you, find out who in your area is the authorized service rep for your set. Call them in to check it out for you. At least you will get the proper answer.

My magnavox 42mf521d/37 tv stopped working.

First place to look is to follow the power cord inside the set to the main fuse---look at that first. If you are not able to do that get a shop or tech to look for you.

No picture on left side of screen and bad picture on right side.


Have the Digital board and logic board replaced. the most common problem will be the logic board assembly. Altho the Digital board can also cause this problem. Try taking off the back and making sure the LVDS Cable is connected tightly to the logic board assembly and the panel, (Scrn), The LVDS Cable will look like a small wire harness with two metal clips on each end make sure it is secure, try disconnecting it and reconnecting it again.

Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.
