It appears that your are having a tube failure issue.

Either that, or you have a capacitor problem.

Both can act like that, but as a rule the tube acts more like that when it fails than the other parts of the tv.

The tubes are replaceable, and are available from Fry's and BestBuy.

If it winds up that it is the capacitors instead, then I would take the tv to either Fry's, BestBuy, or RadioShack.
These companies have specially trained techs for just that repair, as it takes special skills to deal with the voltage and power that capacitors can hold in them.

I hope that this helps you out some, and good luck!

Proscan 42 in tv....has a very thin line about 4 inches from the bottom of the screen. we had the tv for almost 3 years. this just started last night. can it be fixed?

Anything can be fixed, short of it being totally destroyed. The question is can it be fixed in a cost-effective manner? Today's TV sets are manufactured for a three-year lifespan....regardless of what the manufacturers say. They are made with minimal-tolerance components, and are designed to fail in the 2-4 year range. Most make that, some don't even get out of warranty. The manufacturers take the risk because it is more profitable for them to make some warranty repairs in order to get the repeat buyer in 3 years instead of 10. If you got 3 years out of you set you did well. Some try to repair the sets themselves; some are successful, many are not. These devices are delicate and often in the process of fixing one thing, something else gets broken. You can try for repairs, but you are most likely better off buying new, and consider this when buying.....look for features you want NOW and not in the future, since by the time those feature are needed, you will be once again in the market for a new set. One additional piece of advice; to help these new devices last longer, buy and install a UPS to protect them from voltage variations and power surges. Surge suppressors alone can help, but they don't respond to voltage variations that often occur in electrical service. These are often the killers on these devices.

4 year old vizio 42 inch tv lcd. While watching tv, the screen started dimming. There is a 4 inch shadow all along left side of the screen and the 1 inch line shadow going down the middle of the screen.

Maybe a power supply or related issue but at 4 years of age the set has reached its life span----parts will be hard or impossible to find.

If you got four years I would retire it and recycle it and then replace it.

I have the same issue too. Unfortunately I believe it is the panel going out. Not sure if there is a way to fix it or not. My thinking is that I have read somewhere that this is the issue.
