Black Screen After watching my tv, at random times, the screen will go very dark and we will only be able to see shadows, When I turn off TV and wait the screen will be normal. It doesn't matter if we are watching tv, playing games or watching DVDs it does it at random times. What do I need to have done?

Ok, this is probably what has happened, you say that you have played games on your tv, well the thing is with HD and Plasma Screen tv's is that when you play Hi-Res games on them the games backdrop will burn itself into the screen, causing the screen to turn dark and not reveal the correct picture it should. People need to learn about this!!!!! Playing games on HD and Plasma tv's will screw up your resolution!!!

Have like black shadow lines about 3 to 4 inches wide on my screen

Dark shadows can show up on a TV screen when the images have been displayed for a vert long time and have now become stuck in the LCD and the screen for your TV . Or the LCD and the TV's screen might be broken for your TV and needs to be replaced.

My zenith lcd tv has horizontal black lines whih form a band about 3 inches wide across the screen, sometimes the band looks more like a dark shadow than lines other times the right side of the screen...

This is either 1 of 2 things, first it could be faulty panel tabs , in this case, there is nothing you can do and is unrepairable....2) you could take the back off the tv and you will see 2 ribbons going from your t-con board to the panel tabs (top center of tv) remove them carefully and reseat them. This is a common problem. Tv repair tech 15 years! Best of luck.

Dark vertical shadows

No,you can't. This is very common. I bought a new tv and i noticed right away that it had the problem you are mentioning. I took it back for an exchange and the next tv did not have this problem...until a year later. Now,of course it does have this problem,but it is out of warranty.

I think they make televisions very poorly today.
