It didn't hit hard but afterwards the bottom corner of the screen is in a different color than the rest of it. I just bought the tv a year ago so I do not want to replace it if I don't have to. Any quick and easy fixes for this?

Re: I dropped my tv
If it dropped it could be a major problem or a simple fix?? The first thing you wanna do is unplug the set overnight . Plug back in cold in the am and turn on the set. Did the spot go away?? Did it get less visable?? No? Then the shadow mask inside the picture tube got bent when it dropped and the only way to fix this is to replace the picture tube. Sorry man Good Luck

Where do you notice this bar? At the right side of the screen? Bottom of the screen? Top of the screen? Is it in white or black in color? Visit the site named 'Electro-help' for

select the site named above. View it
in 'Flip card' option, which can

It usually means the screen unit or panel is damaged--they are very fragile and even a slight blow can destroy them---Panel alone if bad costs much more than another set--seen one where a two year old just slapped the screen (not very hard either) and destroyed it Panel.
I will attach a few photos---no two look alike except if a starburst or odd pattern does not move---Panel.
Movement of any TV can result in a problem caused by bad solder connections.In your case, the red convergence IC...... Found on a circuit board,mounted on large heatsinks........ Part # STK392-040.....Change both for prevent maintenance. Do not use generics - I use OEM or better = Sam,Pan,Hitachi. After repair,recheck alignment................T.
