Question about Polaroid FLM-3734B 37 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

No picture Our tv started out with faint wavy lines and went to one side having vertical lines that didn't show the picture on one side to going to a black screen with the sound remaining all along. Sometimes the picture will come back perfectly but after a short time it will again repeat this process.

    We have had the tv for about 2 years, today the screen went blank with verticle lines. The sound is working perfectly. Occasionally the picture will return but it is split with half the picture on the left side then repeated on the right side with a line down the center. If someone knows how to fix this issue I would love to have the information. Since the problem just began today I am in the initial diagnosis stage.

My LCD TV has a vertical line on the right side of the screen. What causes that?

I hate to give you bad news but I believe this will be a panel issue and it's not going to be fixable. You can try a different tcon board but I don't think it will help

Panasonic ctp2780sf no picture faint line going vertical across screen

There are two reasons for this fault. A fault smoothing capacitor at the video output voltage rail, or excess of screen voltage. These lines are called 'vertical retrace lines' technically. Check this link for more details. It has a post, which have information regarding this fault. Go to older posts there.

We got our mitsubishi in 2000. it was working fine and then little by little the picture has wavy lines and you can't see the movie, it has gotten much worse. what can we do?

The wavy lines are caused by the aging of the vertical deflection unit = the defective parts (some capacitors and resistors) must be replaced.
The fix wont be very expensive - the parts will cost less than $25 - but you need a good electronics repair guy to do the job and this is going to cost you.
Remember, it's an old tv that has started to show its age. Maybe it's time to start saving for a new one.

Faint Vertical lines on Samsung LCD TV

Your correct, LCD's don't burn. This sounds like a defective main control module. I would take it in as soon as possible to have it looked at.

Pictures goes to distorded wavy lines.

This could be attributed to tuning reception of your tv. If your using antenna only, it is most probable. If cable, check your line.

If this is a crt type, moving that tv with that size could somehow bend its circuit board. Loose connection is a probability. Could be some minor component is detached from solder. This can be attributed to tuner and vertical IC.

Just for an input.

Picture is wavy and has black vertical and horizontal band

The following are supposed to be checked on the horizontal and vertical,
the supply of the sawtooth oscillator
eletrolitic capacitors near a line transformer
zener diodes
and driver transistor a round that area.

Mitsubishi VS-45607 45" Big Screen

Good Day, Delano1981;

It may cure the problem but I would suspect the 9 Volt source
CHECK C2P05 100 UFD 16 V OFF PIN 3 OF IC2P01 AND
IC2P01 PART # 270P466020 (9-VOLT REGULATOR). BOTH
ARE ON THE SIGNAL PCB.

This should resolve your TV"s condition.

Good Luck, big IRISH.
