Half Screen My PHD50400 has a fantastic picture...but intermittantly half the picture disappears! Horizontal line directly across the middle of the screen and either the top OR the bottom half will go black. Not an issue with the cable system, it is the monitor itself. Taken it to the shop twice, and when they test it, it of course runs perfectly, and even with photos of the problem shown to them the techs say that it has to fail before they can diagnose. Sometimes if I forcefully hit the back of the unit, it will come back, but this can't be good for the monitor long term! Any ideas?

Take it apart and check the cables to see if they are seated properly, if you hit it and it comes back, then something is not connected good

I'm not sure if this model is the one that has resistors that go bad. You can actually purchase a pack of resistors in a kit. It will come with solder, the resistors and instructions. You can lay the tv out and take the circuit board out to find the blown components, and replace the bad ones. Takes about an hour start to finish and will cost around $65.00. It has been a few years since I did this, so I'm not sure on the price.
