    I am having the same problem with my daughters Nintendo DS after my wife dropped it. Lower screen has the vertical lines that never go away. Should I send it in or will a ribbon do the trick?



    The lower screen responds to drawing when no game is put in. The upper screen show what is drawn, so it seems the problem is just a connection. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

The connection to the lower screen is probably a bit broken. If you feel up to it you could take your DS apart using a tri winged screwdriver (can be bought from www.whitedog.co.uk/catalog/nintendo-wing-screwdriver/p-1169.html) or you could just send it in for repair.

My led samsung tv has a horizontal line and the upper right corner shows a white vertical lines


Not good. You may have a tab failure. A repair shop may be able to diagnose and repair this, but most likely the lcd panel is broken. The panel is the most expensive part of flat tv's. A new panel will cost more than a used tv.

Our LN40A630 has three horizontal white lines across the screen on power up (center, center of upper half , and center of lower half). After about five minutes the lines go away. Tried Picture Test in...


This is a sign of your LCD panel beginning to die. Sometime soon those lines won't fade away and will become permanent parts of your TV screen.

Considering the fact that your TV is approx 3-4 years old, this is normally the expected lifespan of a TV. Once the TV becomes unwatchable, your best bet would be to begin shopping for a new one.

Look in users manual or internet you should find how to access service mode, this is different from regular setup CONVERGENCE, this involves getting into changing parameters to tweek convergence, even after amps are changed.

Yamaha YPG625 screen shows only vertical lines


I brought the keyboard into a local service technician. He told me that he had to remove about 50 screws but the solution was simple. He unplugged and reconnected the ribbon connector. It apparently was not making good contact.

Sony kv35s66: No picture, just sound and red blinking


This should be a quick fix. Try resoldering the vertical IC. This is a small flat IC attached to a heat sink with about 11 pins. It should be marked LA7837 or something similar. That should resolve the problem.

Keep us posted.

Color distortion


Move any speakers or electrical devices away from the set. It could also be anything electronic or magnetic. Anything near the set that generates a magnetic or electromagnetic field could be causing the distortion.

Sony kv35s66: No picture, just sound and red blinking


The most common problem (I have fixed lots) is the Vertical amplifier has developed a loose connection. It probably just needs resoldering. As things expand it makes and looses connection you picture goes in and out. The vertical chip is a large black chip that gets hot, over time it degrades the solder until a connection is damaged. Most newer sets have a protection circuit that senses the lack of height, and shuts down the picture tube to save it. When the picture dropped to a line on older TVs and left that way too long it would burn a line into the face of the picture tube. You then had to have the picture tube replaced along with the vertical amp. it's kinda like a screensaver for your TV.
