    I have almost the same problem but my tv works great but when i watch it, these thin lines are across the top and it seems to look as if the tv is of position but itried to postion it better and it still their. for example if im watching a movie the credits go up and come back down the screen but their upside down and it goes until the line end and it is about a quarter of ther screen.

Hi kmb0516.
Depends how old the set is, if it is more than 5 years old, time to tell it goodbye, if it is less, might be worth fixing.

I believe the problem is in the vertical output section, it sounds like the picture has shrunk.

Hope this helps, Greg.

Samsung pn51d440a5d thin black horizontal lines across complete screen,2 to 3 inches apart,replaced y sustain and y buffer pcb


These lines a are technically called as 'vertical retrace' lines. There will be thin white horizontal lines, at about 1" apart, all around the screen. Even though, you've decreased the brightness and contrast to its minimum, these line will be there. There are many reasons for this fault. If the screen voltage is more than normal, or the supply voltage to video output transistors are less than normal [due to faulty smoothing capacitor], this fault can occur. If you're sound in electronics, check this link. It has details about how to check for this fault. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Pull up previous posts by its left sidebar, or type in the brand name and model number to of your set, to its search box, and press 'Enter' or view it in Mosaic / Timeslide option.

My t.v. is an sylvania and the screen is all black with a white line going across the screen. It only shows images where the white line is and the white line is very thin. how can I fix this problem or...


Sinegalnatal -
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but that sounds like your TV is broken. There's very little chance that you'll be able to fix it yourself, as modern televisions are incredibly complicated and dangerous to work in without training. I'd suggest sending it in for service if it's still under warranty. If not, you could look in to a local TV repair place.
Good luck!

Insignia 32" TV Thin line across screen 1-2" from top


The original white line problem was caused by improper adjustment of the vertical size for which there is an internal adjustment. The current problem could come from two different sources, one an adjustment again, the other from a capacitor that is losing capacitance and gaining losses; = sick.
If you are fortunate enough to have a surviving TV repair in your area, none of these problems is expensive to find or correct.
Don't be surprised to find the only TV shop operating out of a messy garage since those of us doing this kind of service are dying off and the price one can charge for labor has shrunken to the point that a real business address is too expensive to have.

Insignia 32" TV Thin line across screen 1-2" from top


This is usually caused by bad capacitors in the vertical circuit. If you have an electronics background you should be able to find the defective ones with an ESR tester .

Thin horizonal line in middle on dark screen


The several thin white lines at the top of the screen is the warning that the vertical output IC is not getting the boost voltage it needs to run correctly. The IC cannot operate for long like that and shorts out inside, which is when the vertical collapses altogether and you get the thin white line through the center of the screen. The good news for your son is that he had nothing to do with that, and it has nothing to do with the cable F connector. The set needs to be serviced by an experienced tech who will restore the boost supply and replace the vertical output IC, and when I do that I charge $75 but techs in your area will vary, so be sure to ask around.

1.Are these lines only in the upper 1/3 rd portion of the screen?And is there a clear demarcation between this area and the lower portionb, where the image is perfect? 2.Or is thin Horizontal lines evenly spaced around an centimetre apart? If it is the first case, then there si a problem with your TVs SMPS. It is not generating the required regulated 110V required for the TVs functioning. If it is case 2, then there is a simple adjustment at the back - 'SCREEN'. This adjusts the Screen Grid Voltage, and by slightly lowering it, this problem will go away.
