SOURCE: Vizio 42 in TV LCD HDTV white line across to of

That white line (usually jagged) is actuallly part of the transmitted picture. However, you are not intended to see it because it is located in what is known as the 5% overscan area. Your TVs today are more than just cable ready... they are a versital, technology filled multimedia display. You can see that line because the screen size or wide mode you are using is intended for 1080p/24 signals. You have 0% overscan with this screen size setting. This allows you to see ALL of the picture, including portions of the picture the broadcaster did not intend for you to see. You can change your screen size using the Wide feature in the Setup menu. See pg.62 of your user manual for details and descriptions of the various wide modes.

4- Release the power button

5- Plug in the TV into a different outlet

My Vizio LCD TV screen fades to dark. Sound stays on.


I w having this same issue when watching a Blu-Ray disc. I found it to be dependent upon what picture mode the TV was set to. By this I mean certain picture modes would cause the TV to dim during dark scenes of a movie. Changing the picture mode helped a lot.

51'' Philips rear projection TV with color issues


Philips has had a big problem with there coolant fluid becoming cloudy. The only way to clear it up is to have the fluid changed. With every projection crt tv there is a layer of cooling fluid between the face of the crt and the lens. This coolant cools the face of the crt. Over time the coolant breaks down and the light coming through gets distorted. The crt's have to be removed from the set to do this.
