Colored lines runnning vertical or horizontal are all indications that either the display electrode or address electrode has suffered damage. Because of the manner in which these units are manufactured there is a slim to none chance of it being repaired by a local repairman without replacing the screen which depending on the unit may make it a better solution to buy a new TV. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but I assume you were prepared for the worst.Hope this helps you.

There are lines through the screen (red and blue) like the screen is cracked but the screen s not cracked as far as i can see


If the set got struck on the screen the screen itself may not be cracked but the panel (The entire front where you view the image is called a display panel) may be damaged inside.

A good photo would tell me--usually it will look like a odd burst or lines and or colors more pronounced where the screen was hit and spreading out in a uneven pattern---Google for "Pictures of Damaged LCD or Plasma screens"

I HAVE 22 INCH FLAT SCREEN THAT FELL AND THE SCREEN WAS HIT SO NOW IT HAS DIFFERENT COLOR LINE AND IT LOOKS AS IF THE SCREEN IS CRACKED BUT IT NOT. WHAT COULD BE WRONG


Flat screen sets (LCD and Plasma) are extremely fragile and if damaged in any way the cost of replacement exceeds the price of a new set.

A 22 inch is likely not to even have the display panel available---considering cost of replacement set--I would just buy a new set.

Whats causing horizontal lines in my philips 42 in. plasma tv? seems to be 4 sets of lines with about 15 to 20 lines in each set. Also has the red vertical explosion from images on the channel im watching.


There are very fragile ribbons that are attatched to the top of some LCD displays, if these have been pinched or damaged in anyway, this can create what you are describing. Was the LCD panel ever hit by like a wii remote around the tv bezel or did it fall without cracking the screen? It could be something simpler like, some really wrong color settings or something...

One of my kids hit the screen with something. when off it looks fine, but when on the screen looks cracked on the inside, plus there is lines of color running side to side and up and down. sometimes theres...


I hate to be the bearer of this news...but the LCD panel is cracked and ruined. Probably will NOT be worth repair. I have one in my garage JUST Like this, only a few months old, Samsung,and it looks FINE, until it is powered and then you see the "spider web" pattern.

Keep this in mind in the future..flat panel sets are MUCH, MUCH easier to break than the "old fashioned" CRT Sets, that you REALLY had to try and break. A minor "tap", less than needed to break a window, is ALL that is needed to kill an LCD OR plasma set.

When the power is on it looks like the screen is cracked. Is there anyway to repair it?


Well if the "crack" looking stuff is horizontal or vertical like a bar, but at least in a straight line, you may have to replace a screen chip. Now if the "crack" looks like its not straight and looks sort of like a river, going this way then that, then the screen is unfortunately shot, something cracked it or hit the screen.... Find a used one to replace, or check your warranty and send it back. Other then that, may have to get a new one.

Vertical colored lines on screen-no picture


It's definitely possible. I'd have it checked by a repair center for something like this.
