    I'm not using a memory card and a problem with the processor and the power supply are two very different problems unlikely to be related to each other. The power supply is the same as it has always been and the unit has been sitting on the same spot in the office since I got it over a year ago. So the power cord is virtually new.

It appears as if your image processor is bad, try replacing the memory card and power supply. If that does not work please send it back to the manufacturer.
Good Luck!

Which methods are there for cutting bottles?

According to Wikipedia these are the bottle cutting methods:

Rope Method:
The rope method is a common practice for those novice at cutting glass bottles. The idea is to take a rope or piece of string and tie it tightly to the bottle directly into score line. The string is to be then painted with a flammable oil then set on fire. The heat that comes from the burning string will cause the bottle to soften in the score. While the score is still warm, the bottle is then placed under a flow of cold water which will tighten the heated molecules at such a quick rate that the stress of the bottle is released through your score causing a break in the glass. Problems with this method include the stress in the bottle being so great that the bottle fails to break immediately on the score line and will leave large jagged pieces that take a long time to grind down.

Torch Method:
The torch method is very similar to the rope method but requires a much more practiced hand in cutting bottles. The idea here is to use a torch to heat the bottle over the score line until the bottle reaches appropriate temperature to then place under the cold running water. Problems that occur with this method include still large jagged edges much like the rope method, however, much more accurate to the score. An advantage to this method is the lack of material and cost with a quicker and cleaner result.

Water Method:
Although all methods include a cold stream, this is the only method in which to make a cut using entirely water. Problems that occur in the rope method and the torch method is that the glass becomes too hot too quickly making inaccurate breaks with large stress lines and fractures in the glass. With the water method, you can obtain an almost perfect cut and at a faster and cheaper rate than almost all other methods. In this method, boiling water is poured slowly on the score line raising the temperature in the glass at a much slower rate than a fire method and will maintain a much lower temperature. Once the bottle becomes warm, it is then placed under the cold running water for the break. Problems still occur during this method with sometimes jagged edges and stress lines and fractures, however; most methods are a 50%-60% success rate, where as the water method is about a 95% success rate.

How do I Fix LCD White Screen?

If you see "fractured lines" across the screen, it would appear that your LCD screen is broken. That's the only way these kinds of lines appear.
You need to replace the screen.

This is a sign of your LCD panel beginning to die. Sometime soon those lines won't fade away and will become permanent parts of your TV screen.

Considering the fact that your TV is approx 3-4 years old, this is normally the expected lifespan of a TV. Once the TV becomes unwatchable, your best bet would be to begin shopping for a new one.

You have poor contacts and or dry joints. Resoldering on the convergeance panel and powersupply/line timebase board will probably fix it.
It should take less than an hour in labour terms.

My picture is a straight line only across the center of the screen

This is due to either a bad IC chip or cold solder joints on the IC (integrated circuit) chip. Sometimes lightly tapping on the chip will clear up the picture. You will need to remove the rear panel of the tv to do this.

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.

Line across middle of screen.

The line of color is due to a failure in the vertical circuit. The main suspects are the vertical Ic AN15525A and/or capacitor c308 220uf@35volts
If you have the capacity to do so, you should check the other electrolytic capacitors in the vertical circuit which are USUALLY located near the vertical IC in most cases
you can purchase the part at
or mcm electronics
