The most likely cause is a light tunnel issue. There is a small metal device shaped like a cylinder about 5/8 inch diameter by about 1-1/2 inch long that contains 4 small mirrors arranged so there is a rectangular light tunnel through the cylinder. The light coming from the color wheel passes through this tunnel and it shapes the beam in the right shape to be directed at the imaging chip. If one or more of these mirrors does not stay in place it can cause a shadow on an edge of the screen.

The mirrors are held in place inside the metal cylinder with a couple of springs around the cylinder and also by glue or plastic material between the cylinders metal walls and the mirrors. The simplest way to fix it is to replace this light tunnel with a new one. The cylinder can be replaced in the wrong orientation and it can then interfere with the color wheel causing it to be damaged. If someone is good with fine detail they can carefully move two of the mirrors toward each other, insert a little super glue between the mirrors and the metal wall and then move these mirrors to the walls so they are again in the right position.

The process for gaining access to the light tunnels involves removing screws holding the electronics modules in the TV so they can be separated from the TV. The lamp assembly, cooling fan assembly and color wheel can be removed so the projector parts can be removed. The light tunnel has a cover over it that can be removed so the light tunnel can the be removed to be worked on.

Learning how to do this takes a lot of patience, mechanical inclination and risk. I was successful but not all are.

There are other descriptions of this issue that provide similar information so your might want to look for them and study them before deciding to do surgery or not.

Good luck!

I have a 42' LG plasma that has now has a 1 1/2 inch verticle stripe on the right side. It used to come and go but now rarely goes away. Any ideas?


I believe that this could be a type of "burn in". If you watch anything with a black stripe on the sides or bottom of the screen often, then this could be the problem. My suggestion is to watch things that have no black side bars for a while (>week) and see if this eliminates the problem.
Good Luck!!

Right half of screen is Black with a White vertical stripe


Yeah, I have this exact same problem, except my mom slammed my laptop shut in frustration around half an hour ago, so that's why it's like this. The right half of my screen is black with two colorful stripes (mostly white), but the left half is visible. I've researched a bit and found out that this is because the LCD in your monitor has burnt out, and since you don't have a monitor to attach, the only thing you can do is to go to where you bought the laptop and either get it fixed for free or return it for a brand new one (if your warranty still stands). If not, you might as well get a new laptop. I think my warranty has expired, so I'll get a new laptop, hopefully.

Hope this helps!

I would try a couple of things. First and cheapest way is to try and update your driver. If that does not work, then try to remove and reseat your memory card(s), and if all else fails you will need to buy a new graphics card approx 75 to 150 depending on how good you want to go.
