LG plasma 50 inch tv with a fine vertical black line in the center of the screen that runs from the top of the screen to the bottom

Try changing the input device to something you are sure works. Switch off TV manually, switch off power, remove plug and retry after 48 hours. If problem persists, please refer it to a qualified service technician.

How come the top and sometimes the bottom of my screen are cut off

Not all bradcast are in 16:9 resolution (wide screen). Most are still in 4:3 (old TV).
Sometime the advertisements are in 16:9 letterbox to project correctly on 4:3 TV and TV logo or titles are on the bottom or top of the picture. If TV is set to project wide screen, these logos or writings will be cut off.
If you have an option to switch TV resolution from remount, you will see whole picture.
Check your TV manual for settings.

52" Samsung that the top half of screen goes black.

the HDTV has a heat-related problem check your fans. Do they remove heat? the vertical chips paint the screen from top to middle and, middle to bottom so; your top to middle vertical chip is overheating as is your video chip; that is why you have "glitter" in the back ground. get rid of the heat or, bye,bye TV.

Screen is cut off top/bottom

I had the same problem on my 47 inch Westinghoust HDTV. It turned out to be a problem related to my satellite tv (Direct TV) remote controller. Someone inadvertently hit the "format" key and jacked it up. I set back to it's original position and get the full screen. Don't know if you have cable or satellite, but this may help someone having this problem,

Verticle lines on screen

This is a very easy fix. Your cable box is not grounded correctly. To fix this you need a AC Plug adapter. This will change your TV ac plug from a 3 wire to a 2 wire. This may sound funny, but trust me on this. I have fix a lot of TV in NY doing just this.24001fc.jpg
